Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rs125 I've had this chain saw a number of years now and have nothing but praise for it. While some may think it only for light duty cutting it can do far more. I purchased it when Hurricane Sandy uprooted a very tall evergreen on my property and my gas chainsaw was inoperable. Considering what a contractor would have charged to remove the tree I would have been happy if the Homelite only lasted for this one job. Instead it came through with flying colors and since than I've cut down four more large trees with the tallest being over 50' with this little saw. I use it to cut the entire tree except for the base which I switch to my 16" electric due to the diameters. For my initial investment of $50 and half a dozen chains I've saved thousands.

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).

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Plenty of power but the chain tension adjustment consists of a cheap plastic gear which was worn down after only using it two times. Brought it back. Low price, fine but low overall quality too.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jack OK for small jobs
Adequate for small jobs. Used it to cut small limbs, 4 to 6 inches. Would not use it to cut a tree down. Uses too much oil which helps wood chips to bunch up behind cover and puts pressure on chain. Chain fell off several times. Need to tighten lock nut every couple of minutes. I bought a gas powered Homelite in 1973 when we had several acres of woods and kept it until we sold in 98. Never had the chain fall off and it used far less oil. But for the price and limited use I would recommend it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MisterDIY Doesn't come with a hard plastic scabbard
Never got a chance to use it as it didn't come with a hard plastic scabbard. The display model had one, and the box said it came with one. When I opened it up, I saw that the 'scabbard' was soft and flimsy. I felt I was misrepresented and that a hard scabbard would important for storage, so I returned it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Art1119 Great little saw
Just make sure you get the bar oil. Reliable, enough power for midsize trees and branches. Perfect for a homeowner.
