Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tim .043 chain is too light
the special narrow gauge chain on this saw is too light duty for regular use. If your chain gets loose and comes off the bar, the sprocket will instantly destroy the drive teeth. The sprocket is hardened and severely nicks up the drive links not allowing them to slide into the bar groove. to use the chain I had to file down all or the damaged links ( I had no choice because Home Depot stores don't appear to stock replacement chains for THIS SAW) ( A chain coming off is a normal occurence, in my book you try to avoid it but it's going to happen if you use it enough). The Home Depot rep told me to go find the chains from a different vendor on the internet! If I would have been told this up front I would have opted for the STIHL brand

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TW Decent for clearing small brush and trees.
I have small trees and some large bushes to clear. It cuts great! The main problem I had was with the chain getting knocked off trying to cut higher branches off of a large bush. I never had that happen with a gas chainsaw.

I had heard so many things about this chainsaw but couldn't have imagined how much better it was than what I had heard. Buy this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck excellent power & QUIET!!
I bought this saw over other brands and models. I haven't been DISAPPOINTED YET. In 1 day I cut 16 wheelbarrows of wood. I am a experienced wood cutter, I used this saw to cut stuff a gas saw would. QUIET! I used it to limb and cut most of a 45' pear tree 2 days ago, over my gas saw. Like the quietness of it. Getting 2 more batteries and charger so I can cut longer and use it more than gas saws. In (cold) winter use 0w to10w motor oil. In summer I use mix of 30w and regular bar oil. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Axxman Can't believe how great this performs!
It's only a 16 inch saw, so when I needed to chop up a 20 inch log from a tree felled by lightning in my yard, my buddy laughed when I walked out with it! He soon had his mind changed as both of us were completely surprised by the quiet but incredible performance!

after wrist problems a gas chainsaw has too much vibration and impossible to start without pain.
Battery life is very impressive as well as the speed of the blade. This saw runs well and cuts down trees.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SpamOfDeath Love this thing. Perfect for semi rustic environments
Quiet, powerful, torquey. Cuts thru 6" thick limbs like butter. Deserves to be treated with respect; do yourself a favor and install the tip guard otherwise you can derail the chain super easy. Adjusts easily. I use this to cut larger branches that fall into my yard from my neighbors trees and it's without equal. Do yourself a favor and invest in chainsaw gloves and shin guards if you are on uneven terrain. The amount you spend on those is insignificant to your ER copay and surgeon's bill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by donnablueribbon Amazing!
I have owned a gas chain saw in the past and it worried me! I decided to try a battery powdered one after falling in love with my battery powered extension chain saw. This machine is simply AMAZING! I love it and it works like a charm. I charged up the battery and then began taking down the trunk of a 25 year old plum tree. Zip, zip, zip and it was finished with power to spare.
