Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Vmax1985 Stops every four seconds
Bought a year ago. Used sparingly around the house. Returned the first one because it shut off after a few minutes. The second one keeps shutting off. It will start again after a few seconds. Battery fully charged. Not hot. Frustrating, I now wish I'd bought gas powered.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobGInCO OK, I've owned this saw about a year now. Last weekend I took down between 25 and 30 trees (50-60 foot pine/spruce/fir mix) in "two battery charges". The Oregon chain I bought at Home Depot worked great. I get about 45 minutes out of a full charge. Be sure to refill the chain oil reservoir every time you swap the battery out! In a nutshell, this saw is awesome! Watch several YouTube videos to really get a handle on the "right" way to fell a tree, and get that $5 plastic felling wedge at Home Depot - it's a critical part of the process. Next fall, I will take down another 20 or 30 trees - all part of Fire Hazard Mitigation, on the edge of the Arapaho National Forest, where I live.

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

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 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.

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.
