Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John Allen Don't waste your money. Can't even trim a hedge!!
The chain bar is to flexible. The oiler doesn't work, the chain won't stay on no matter how you adjust it. Noisey and rattles. I RETURNED IT IN LESS THAN 2 (TWO) HOURS.
I bought a Ryobi pole saw instead. Much better. Same money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moses5225 Great choice for the money and size
No assembly required just open the box add oil and start cutting trees. that was one of the best parts about this after the hurricane here in Florida. it was a great help and with other high priced options, im glad that i chose this one. Homelite brand is a great brand ive bought many of their products and im very satisfied with all of them.

Ready to go right out of the box - just add the oil. Made short work of my large ash tree. Love not needing to deal with gas/oil or that tool that always seemed to be missing in the old models to adjust the chain. Seems sturdy so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John I had brought a truck load of wood down from the mountain, and needed to cut it down to fireplace size before splitting it. Unfortunately my gas powered saw obviously had some varnish in the carburetor from sitting for too long. I decided that I would get this electric saw to have at the house and fix my gas saw later. I really like that this electric saw and my gas saw use the same chain, and since they are both Homelite they have the same tensioning system.
I am ultimately very impressed with this little saw. It's not as powerful as my gas saw, but I was anticipating that when I bought it. I am surprised at how powerful it really is, and it's so easy to use. I know that I will fix my gas saw before I go back up to the mountain to get another load of wood, but I doubt that I will make my neighbors hear that two stroke motor again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PattiM Read all reviews carefully; 4 star rating misleading
I purchased this product less than 2 weeks ago. It is going back today! Wish I had read all the ratings and not just relied of it being 4/5 stars. The chain will not stay on; if you wish to put the chain on between every cut and sometimes 2, 3, or more per cut then this is for you.
Plus left to sit overnight the oil leaks, leaving wooden countertop with large oil spots. Yuck!

I had a tree fall during Hurricane Matthew and needed a chain saw.
I read many of the reviews and watched lots of youtube videos and felt this was going to be a good buy.
I used the mobile app and purchased online. Then first thing this morning I went to the store to pick this up.
And I was right, it is a good buy.
Many of the written reviews mentioned the chain falling off.
Mine did once as well. I found that after many cuts if you reach down and tighten the tension control the chain does not fall off. Once I determined not to ignore that everything ran fine.
You also have to keep an eye on the bar and chain oil reservoir. The saw uses oil. But it performed excellently.
My neighbor brought his 40cc gas powered 16 inch chainsaw and I found the two were very comparable in performance. But mine did not run out of gas. I did not have to mix oil into gas. Mine was not near as loud, in fact hearing protection is not required.
I also followed the instructions and emptied the oil reservoir once finished.
After cutting up the tree I am very satisfied.
I can put this away until needed next time and not worry about it sitting with gas or the engine seizing because it has not be run.
I am very impressed.

This 16 inch HomeLite chain saw is made for light use. It is very consumer grade. Don't expect this chain saw to last long or cut many big branches. If you occasionally cut a tree branch, this chainsaw is for you. Buyer remorse: I wish I had shop around for a better built one. I paid HomeDepot slightly over $80.
