Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TooTallFlash NICE ELECTRIC CHAINSAW
I bought this 9 AMP Homelite 14" chainsaw to replace a 12" Remington electric saw I purchased years ago as the housing cracked making it difficult to keep the bar and chain tight. It worked real well for me and had seen real hard use sawing up a old building I tore town. I needed this Homelite to replace it so I could do some willow tree removal,etc. So far I'm real happy with this saw. It cut through the green willow branches like a hot knife through butter ! Automatic chain oiler, chain tension. Put some bar oil in it, plug it in,let't rip. NICE! Decent quality for the price,couldn't get any simpler. I expect to get a reasonable life out of this unit with light duty tree trimming and general light chainsaw use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrianC This little thing is a work horse.
I've had two of these and they work really well for small trees. This is my second one and I've had it for three years. The first one was over used and it burnt out but that was my fault. You can't use these for 4 hours in a row or they will fail. I've included pictures, with some flair, of a tree I cut down yesterday. I took an hour break in the middle when the chain was hot to the touch.
Some things to remember with this.
1. Use the bar and chain oil and make sure there is always some in the reserve. It will go fast.
2. Tighten the chain often because it can get loose and you don't want to break it.
3. Take small breaks if it starts getting too hot. I don't know what too hot is but I, and others here, bunt them out but going too long.
Follow those rules and you shouldn't have problems cutting down most small trees.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DW6 Pleased with this purchase
I purchased this to cut up smallish branches (up to 6-8" diameter) from a few trees around the yard. This chainsaw has plenty of power to do that, and is quite easy to use. I also got this for the kickback preventer tip, and that seems to be doing its job.
My only complaint is that I am getting small drips of bar and chain oil as its sitting in storage. I don't know if that is common with other chain saws in storage or not.
This chainsaw has done everything I needed it to do so far. Time will tell if the long-term build quality is good or not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sam So good and cost saving
I bought this 14" electrical chainsaw because it costs more to rent a saw to cut two trees. It is my first time to use the chainsaw, so I have to lean how to set up including to buy and add lubracation as wall as a right extension cord. The small saw works perfect and so efficient to cut the trees, much more easier than I thought befor. See my picturs. Very good saw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by imac Better than a gas saw!
I've had this almost a year now and I like it! I just cut down 2 trees in my yard, both about 6-8" in diameter and cut them into firewood size pieces in less than 30 minutes. I'd put it up against any 14" gas chainsaw!
Roll out a cord, pull the trigger and I'm cutting without having to mix gas and oil or pull my arm out of the socket to get it started? There's no other way for me!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by groomer does the job and more
I bought this chainsaw to prune an overgrown blue spruce. It performed wonderfully. It buzzed through limbs effortlessly and is lightweight enough to work from a ladder, including holding the saw above my head, although that is probably not recommended. I've also used it to take down several small trees. This saw has met my expectations for price and performance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alfisch Just what I wanted!
I got this to chew up some branches 4-5" in diameter from a huge Oleander. I tried a handsaw but an old shoulder injury prevented that. At any rate, 12-15 minutes and done. If I lived in Oregon or Washington this might come up a little short but in San Antonio, Tx, it is likely all I'll ever need. The right tool for the right job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PFDLTPM Worked good
This saw worked good for what I needed it for. It was a lot cheaper than renting a saw for a few hours.
