Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PGoTer easy to use chainsaw
I have used my Homelite 16" electric chainsaw for a few months now. I use the chainsaw to cut logs and branches from around the yard mostly hard wood Red Oak, Maple and others. I find the saw easy to use it is quite has plenty of power for logs up to 15" to 16". The Chain is easy to adjust and the auto chain oiler works well, easy to fill, no driping of oil on bench after use. I have never had the chain jump off the chain bar. One con I wish that the chain had a brake auto stop when you let go of the trigger. A big pro not having to mix and store gas, no smell, no noise, very easy to use. Pete in North Carolina.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MisterR Came apart in my hands
After removing from the box and filling with oil, I was ready to go. About 30 seconds into my first cut, the saw blew apart in my hands. The chain, bar and right side exploded. My wife screamed as I checked to see if all my fingers were attached. Obviously, the factory left the chain tensioner loose and obviously I did not check it. Could have been very serious so please check your saw prior to use.

Perfect for a homeowner that has some cutting to do. Not for large base trees. I was very please for the 10-12 inch trees I cut.
I have a gas powered but wanted something for the smaller jobs.

I had a 60 foot pine tree i had to cut down at my cabin cause it had died. I took a chance because an earlier review that said just give it a shot. I did and i took it down in 2 hours cutting it 3 feet at a time with a rope and pully system i rigged up also purchased at home depot. total with bar and chain oil i spent $100.
I have no doubt a gas chainsaw would have been a lot faster but as a home owner and not a professional logger I did not want to spend $300+. For a home owner and DIYer you cannot go wrong. The only reason i did not give it 5 stars is that it does go through oil like crazy. But even an $8 bottle of oil is cheaper then a
gas chainsaw. I used half a bottle on this tree. Nothing to lose as you all know home depot will take back anything. Two big thumbs up. Happy cutting.

This small saw just chewed through a large Misquite Tree. Had plenty of power and in two days of cutting the chain only came off once. Very satisfied.

It's an increible tool. My husband and I have been using this tool to do so many things at home. Little in size and still so powerful. Love it.
