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 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 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.

My Pear tree needed some branches removed as it yields way too much fruit annually, this chainsaw is great and at a great price too, Highly recommended

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.
