Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LennythePitMaster Easy to use
I don't really have any complaints with this chainsaw. I use it every other year for cutting cedar tops that get out of control. Easy to add oil. No issues with it and It's probably cheaper to buy a new unit than getting a replacement chain/sharpening it (which I don't have the files to do).

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.

The task I needed to complete was to cut off two stumps that were about five inches in diameter. I purchased the saw and a container of chain oil for just under $ 60 tax included. I was concerned that the saw might not be powerful enough. It successfully did the job without problems. I had thought of hiring someone to do the job but found that folks were not interested in such a small job. So this really was a win-win for me because I got the stumps cleared and then ended up with a chain saw for less than I could have hired someone to do the job for me. The chain teeth are well designed so that they take a smaller amount of wood than an engine type chain saw would take. This is how the chain is matched to the strength of the electric motor.

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.

The size makes the saw easy to handle as long as the limits of the size don't become a problem.

This Chainsaw was very low priced and easy to use to cut up a cherry tree. The chain tightening feature is convenient because you do not need a wrench. I would suggest emptying any left over oil after use because it will drip out as do most chainsaws. Good value for occasional light duty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djoker Great saw for the price
I own and have owned many chainsaws over the years. This saw is the best electric I have ever used. I keep an electric saw as a backup mostly for those days when all else fails and I need to finish up a job. Has lots of torque and a steel chain sprocket instead of plastic like so many electric saws. I'm sure the people who had problems with these saws were not experienced with chainsaws or were asking too much of a small saw. This thing will cut anything, if you keep it oiled, adjusted, and don't crowd it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bigsquish Really Good Chainsaw
Worked great right out of the box. Just fill with chainsaw oil and you're ready to go. I cut into small sections 20' of a felled tree (around 12-14" diameter). Went well. I did need to remove the safety tip when the diameter was closer was more than 12", and that worked out well. No issues with the chainsaw. Worked as well if not better than I hoped. I would definitely recommend to others as I felt comfortable and safe (as safe as you can feel using a chainsaw). Electric chainsaws seem quite a bit less intimidating than a gas powered chainsaw.
