This product has some issues... cannot really tell if the auto oiler is working proper; I have a fair amount of chainsaw experience, and you should be able to tell if the chain is getting oiled ok... cannot with this. The chain does not clear wood debris very well, and it gets hung up and creates a "log jam" which needs to be cleared way too often... the clogs ultimately made the chain "derail", thus having to disassemble and re-align the chain onto the bar... so a productive day of brush clearing turned into a frustrating day of alligator taming and unnecessary fiddling around... Creates a lot of snarling on behalf of the user... along with some words my wife doesn't like...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johnny Black and Decker Alligator 6in. 4.5 amp electric lopper
I had an Alligator lopper for more than 10 years and either I used it or my adult kids used it on an almost weekly basis. Sadly, we wore it out. I went online to find out that I could still find them, online only, at Home Depot. Happily, the price had gone down by more than $30.00, and the shipping was free! I ordered it on Monday and received it on Thursday! I am a very happy person! We can once again use the Alligator, instead of hauling out the large noisy chainsaw for our small jobs in our yards.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by slider A must have tool for the DIYer
I was really pleased with the performance of this tool. I used it a significant amount over the course of an 8 hour period with absolutely no problems whatsoever! It was safe enough for me to allow my young teen nephews to use with now worries (supervised, of course). I cut through 4 in limbs with very little effort at all. The ONLY reason I did not give it a 5th star was the oil reservoir. Having to stop every ten minutes to oil the bar is annoying, and I'll admit i exceeded that limit a few times with no noticeable issues. The oil bottle that comes with the product is a piece of garbage, but that is not an issue with the unit. A separate oilier will do nicely.

I have always been afraid to use a typical chain saw to trim my trees. Not so with this electric lopper! I've only had it a few weeks, but so far it has made trimming branches and cutting up small limbs easy. I was amazed I could not locate this in ANY store and had to order it on line. Home Depot - You should stock this in your store so more people know about it!

I bought the original alligator 5 years ago. Wore out the original battery, and the second is still usable. It is heavy, and I see the battery type is not made anymore. Possibly to lighten it up. Still using the original chain. It is tired and I tried to get replacement chains and that was impossible. I see home depot is selling it now but it must be ordered. Could not do that before. Do your self a favor and get the spare chain. The chain is what keeps this one I have going, It stayed sharp, so the battery lasts a longer time. Being electric now is good, but I used this far from the house.

The alligator is handy when you have small limbs to cut up.
