36-Volt Electric Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion Chainsaw is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for pruning and cutting This little chainsaw is good for pruning and cutting. I've used it for wide variety of tasks but when I first got it I gave it a run for its worth testing how long it will run and how it canTake to cut a 22 inch live oak wood Slice It ran from full charge to empty in 19 minutes of sustained cutting. It cut 2/3s the log Finished it on 2nd charge Batteries amps are few at 2amps @36 volts 19 minute Continued hard work cut but 52 minutes random cutting of small brush 3" or less Features I like toolless adjustments. it has a twist press tensioner which makes it easy to adjust One bad thing is it's on&off throttle which is hard on the motor as opposed to variable speed throttle like that of gas models Rev up and rev down Other likes well built. And easy to set up, charge,oil & use I'd like to see a 8 amp battery for this model so it can be used for longer durations in the field Most recently I've used it to cut wood chunks for my smoker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arguably the best cordless tool ever! If any tool needs to be cordless, the chainsaw would be it! This is the first time I ever own a cordless chainsaw, and I'm impressed to say the least! First & foremost, I'm not a professional, and I use a chainsaw once every few months or so. This cordless chainsaw will unquestionably make my life easier & safer. Why Cordless? - No gas: safe to store & transport, no mixing gas & oil, no dealing with cold starts, no maintenance, no emissions etc. - No tools: adjustments can be made without the use of tools. - Compact & Lightweight: easy to handle at only 10 lbs including battery. - Less Noise: much quieter than gas. You can work on a Sunday morning without waking up the neighbors. My Experience: This specific Makita chainsaw is well built and feels very solid and balanced. It fits well in my hands with or without gloves. It is super easy to use. It requires minimal assembly and instructions are clear. It is surprisingly powerful, torquey & fast. I was able to trim a couple of trees and chop down a 6" limb with ease. Using a chainsaw on a ladder never felt that easy & safe. Run time is great and the 36V battery charges really fast & delivers a great amount of power. You don't waste energy as the saw comes to a complete stop directly after you release the trigger, unlike gas which idles unless switched off. Vibrations are kept to a minimum. My wife even wanted to use this saw and she was able to handle it well. Next time I need to use this chainsaw in the yard, I would feel confident that it will work when I pick it up. I'm actually looking forward to use this tool again next weekend! If I have to list the CONS for this chainsaw, I would have only two: 1. It does not come with a carry/storage case. 2. It is more expensive than the gas equivalent. But to me, the PROS out-weight the CONS by a large margin! Highly Recommended!
