Mike, I picked up my Black & Decker electric chain saw at the store it was not assembled. The Box contained the body of the saw and the bar with a protective shield was separate. I am not the handiest person however the assembly was not to difficult. All you need to do attache the bar to the main body of the saw and adjust the chain tension. The saw works well for moderate sized jobs. The self oiling feature is very nice. This is my second Black & Decker saw the first one had an electrical failure, it would not repond when i would press the start button. Home Depot replaced the saw free of charge. I am happy with the saws performance.

How much horsepower does this model have? What is the difference between horse power and amp?

My son and I were in the business of removing trees for 20 years. When I dropped out, I gave my four chain saws to my son. This chain saw cuts as strong as any gasoline chain saw, is lighter, doesn't need mixed gasoline, and easier to start than a gas saw when up on a 29 foot ladder. Go for it!

The plastic locking cap on the bar has a lot to do with this. I was in the same boat on first assembly, pull them back apart. If I am remembering correctly you can adjust the space of the bar first and then put the cover and plastic screw down lock on. Since then it has cut down a few trees and trimmed many others.

I think that would be both difficult and risky. Yes, you could do it, but you probably shouldn't. I cut down the 14 foot tall remains of a 20 inch diameter tree (after most of the tree broke off in a storm) with this saw. It took many different cuts from various angles repeatedly making extra cuts to relieve pressure on the places I wanted to cut. Most of that extra work would have been unnecessary with a higher speed gas chainsaw. Many of those extra cuts would have been dangerous with a taller, less predictable, tree.

Is the tension guide piece (that extends the bar putting more tension on the chain) plastic or m...

Metal - aluminum. Works fine. Can be adjusted, without removing the plastic cover, by turning the plastic ring that surrounds the big "nut" that holds the cover on. Once you see it, you'll understand what I'm saying.

I HAVE OWNED THIS CHAIN SAW FOR SEVERAL YEARS. PURCHASED IT TO SUBLIMENT MY GAS SAW WHICH IS HARD TO START AT TIMES. I AM ON MY 2ND CHAIN. TODAY I DECIDED TO CUT DOWN A DEAD TREE IN MY BACK YARD. THE TREE WAS 4 FEET WIDE AT ONE POINT AND 12 FEET IN CIRCUMFERENCE. I HAVE ALWAYS LIKE THIS SAW AND USE IT OFTEN BUT CUTTING DOWN THIS BIG TREE REALLY IMPRESSED ME.

I spent quiet a few hours online researching chainsaws and finally settled on this model. I bought it to do light duty stuff around the house. Limbing trees, cutting up stumps and logs for firewood and possibly even taking down a couple trees on my property in the future. I don't need the portability of a gas saw and I purchased a 50 foot extension cord with my saw. So far, the saw has performed great. I cut up a 20 inch around maple tree for firewood with no problems. The chain tension knob works great and the saw is whisper quiet. I don't need earmuffs like I have in the past with gas saws. My only apprehension with this saw from the reviews I read was that there may be issues with the oiler but I have to say, I have used the saw on 4 separate occasions and the oiler has performed every time. It's light, easy to use, cuts well and hasn't given me any problems as of yet. It's a good saw to have around the house for small tasks.

Didn’t Arrive
I’d like to leave a review of my chainsaw, but it didn’t come. I waited for it all day. Delivery info says today is the day, but just says; “On the way”. Would rather have a tracking number so I could see where it actually is. I have no idea if it’s even here in my town. Needless to say, this is very disappointing.

Worked on 2.5' diameter Oaks
Features :

I purchased this after hurricane Zeta took down several Oak tree's in my yard. The largest had a 2.5' diameter, the smallest was 18". I wasn't sure about buying an electric chainsaw for this kind of work but all they had at the store were Makita's for $500. The chainsaw made short work of all the trees and I would highly recommend it. The only thing that was disappointing was it didn't come with any Chain and Bar oil, so make sure to get that when ordering.

After reading all of the positive reviews, I decided to give this chainsaw a try. Also didn’t want to mess with a combustible engine with mixed gas since I wasn’t planning on using it every day or every week for that matter. Set up was very easy. This tool worked flawlessly. I filled my picked truck 4x the first day I used it. Was cutting everything from oak limbs to palms and bushes. Worked great! I highly suggest

Just purchased,,,, very pleased with this electric chainsaw performance. Put it to the test out of the box, handled a days worth of cutting small to medium size tree branches. Make sure you remove chain and clean intermittently too prevent bogging down. Recommend the 18" blade.
