16" BAR YET CUTS 32 DIAMETER ??? claim HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE ?

S INFO APPEARS IN SPEC CHART SOMEONE HAS THEIR WIRES CROSSED PLEASE CORRECT OR EXPLAIN THINKING OF BUYING LM2102SP CAN I COUNT ON INFO?? LATER MAYBE CHAIN SAW
Asked by: McLONSTER
The Chain saw only has to reach 1/2 way through the tree trunk to cut the tree down. You move the saw around. Go from side to side etc. Maybe it would be better for you to hire a professional to cut your tree down!

If I can't find Oregon brand chainsaw bar oil what other brand who you recommend? What about veg. oil or motor oil?

Asked by: newchainsawowner
In Europe petroleum based chain saw oils are banned because of their effect on the environment, so they use vegetable based oils. It is a common misconception that you must use standard petroleum chainsaw oil for your saw. The US Forest Service published an article by Mech EngineerSkip Garrett about this. It's worth a read. https://www.fs.fed.us/eng/pubs/html/98511316/98511316.html

Will the saw, or any other product produce more power if a bigger battery is used?

For example if I use the 7.5 amp battery that came with my Ego mower will I see an increase in power (torque) from the chainsaw? Or conversely if I use a smaller battery like the 2 amp 'bonus' battery that came with the mower will I see a decrease in power? I realize that there will be an obvious decrease in run time, but will the saw 'see' a bigger battery that is capable of supplying a higher sustained current draw and therefore draw more current and supply power?
Asked by: Tony
No battery size doesn't matter, it will only put out the maximum torque of the electric motor. Battery size will only affect run time.

I notice in reviews that most mention either cutting-up trees already felled, or trimming large branches. For any of you "fellers" (intended) or lady-fellers (I can't help myself....) out there, would you use this to fell/cut-down large diameter(12-15") trees ?..... thx.
Asked by: schwaz
Absolutely! I'd grab it before my 16" Stihl.

I have liked the EGO tools that I bought in the past (blower, hedge trimmer) and decided to continue my replacement of all my gas tools with the purchase of an EGO 16" chain saw. I only used it once so far, and it wasn't a good experience. I had a couple fully charged batteries and tightened up the chain, put bar oil in, and got to work on a spruce tree. On my first cut the chain was thrown off. I ended up having to stop every 3-5 minutes after the chain was thrown off. After trimming the spruce, I went on to some small trees and bushes, same issue. Whatever I tried the chain seem to get thrown off. it looks like there is a slight bend in the groove on the bar close to the gear where it starts to get thrown off. On my first experience with the chain saw, I spent about 15 minutes cutting and over 50 minutes of putting the chain back on and tightening the chain. I am a little sad that I already sold my gas saw. Was hoping this was going to be the same quality as I have had on my other EGO tools.

Given my experience . . . both the charger and battery failed with limited use . . . you will need make sure you do both in order to get replacement parts. I used the saw on limited basis to trim dead/fallen branches and to crosscut reclaimed wood beams. I'd estimate that I used it at total of 75 times give or take. For most of those uses I probably used 50% of a charge. The charger failed after 40-50 cycles and EGO replaced it although I didn't have a receipt. Thank you EGO. The battery just failed and they would not replace it given that I can't provide my receipt ( I lost it). Totally my fault and take full responsibility for two mistakes . . . 1) trying to save money by buying a less expensive tool from a new tool maker and 2) losing the receipt. I ordered a Milwaukee electric chainsaw today . . . now all I have to do is make sure I keep the receipt, not that I'm expecting problems.

The battery gauge. Hard to gauge how much juice is in the tank. Another issue is that lack of bumping spikes, there are ridges in place of the spikes, but I prefer the spikes. Prior to 2 years ago I never touched a chainsaw, then I tried a battery operated one and chainsaws have become my favorite OPE, mainly because it is one of the few that you can use year round. High winds, rain and snow will cause branches to drop and you will ever need a chainsaw. Make sure you use bar and chain oil The tool worked wonderfully on my pile of branches and tree limbs that fell, like a hot knife through butter. I needed to chop of branches from a Pine Tree and it handled it. After 20minutes with a 5.0ah battery, the light was still green. Then again no matter when you press it is green. I even used this on an old stump and this bogged down a little, but went through it. I blame it bogging down on user error as I am not an arborist. This also has tool free tensioning and it worked well as my chain needed tightening. Great product, highly recommend it.

I purchased this saw after reading a couple of positive online reviews at chainsaw websites. One review noted that the saw was still holding a charge after 1 hour of use cutting down moderate size trees. My reality was quite different. I tried charging the battery 3 times and each time was lucky to get 15-20 minutes of actually run time before the battery required a lengthy charge. Why put a 16" bar on a saw that can't hold a charge?? Bottom line: This saw may be fine for routine yard work but is not at all capable of real wood cutting due to extremely short battery life. I am hoping I'll have no trouble returning this item at Home Depot. I was going to give the saw two stars based on the assumption that it might have longer battery life under light duty, but then experienced non-existent customer support when I called their support number. No one ever answered, the call back function didn't work, and I ended up trying to leave a message only to be told that someone would get back to me in 24-48 business hours. Really?? Needless to say, this saw has been a huge disappointment. I had even considered purchasing one of their battery powered generators, but, given the poor battery life and lack of customer support, I no longer have any interest in their products.

This saw works great, pretty powerful, relatively light and fun to use -- IF THE CHAIN STAYS ON. Problem is, the bar is too flexible and lightweight, so much so that it twists with the least pressure on it and thus goes out of alignment with the spinning chain - which throws the chain. Now all the "experts" out there will tell you, "then don't twist the bar." Yet, that is almost impossible to do. Afterall one purchases a lightweight saw to be more nimble and use in difficult situations, angles, etc. So, yeah, a chainsaw bar that twists way more than normal saws is going to have this problem. Ego Power FIX THIS ENGINEERING PROBLEM! They should also make this fix work for previously purchased saws. With such a fix this saw becomes a 5-star tool! We love using it except for when the chain falls off - which is about every 15 minutes. Very frustrating and time consuming.

I have a Stihl gas powered saw, but no longer use it. I will never go back to a gas saw. No more mixing fuel, fooling with gummed up carburetor, pulling cord, hoping the thing will run. Initially, I had trouble keeping the proper chain tension, but that seems to have worked out. Guess it was operator error. Recently, we had a tornado in our area and a large Chinaberry tree came up from the roots and toppled across our backyard. This saw cut up the entire tree, and it was 19” in diameter at the trunk! Of course, had to cut the trunk, partially, one way, then attack the other side, as the bar is only 16”. Wish a larger was available. I charged the battery, before starting on the tree, and never had to recharge. What I especially like is the ease of use. Just be sure to have the chain and bar oil in the reservoir and simply push the button, pull the trigger and you are in business. My son in law came over, with his gas saw, but couldn’t get it to run, so my cordless did it all, quickly and easily. If I could, I would give this thing 10 stars! Get one! You won’t regret it.

Didn't want to spend the $80 plus to get it running. I already have the EGO 15" String Trimmer and the 21" EGO Mower. So off to Home Depot for the trifecta. Had a project "chainsaw ready" so had the perfect reason. Got to the east Texas property and did a little warm up cutting some fire pit fuel. Then I went for the big project. Needed 13 posts for a wildlife feeder pen. I don't want to feed the cattle so need a strong pen. Cut and limed free eastern red cedars for the posts. Think I saved well near the cost of the saw already as the cheapest 8 ' treated post start at $12 plus. I figure it took one and about one half battery charges to cut them all. I know I wore out long before the battery. I didn't even have to jerk the cord once and didn't bother with ear protection. I've attached a picture of the finished project. Too bad EGO doesn't make a post hole digger.

Bought this to make trimming palm fronds in the yard yard a little quicker and easier. That was a mistake. I'm sure it would be a decent product if the chain stayed on for more than 5 minutes at a time. Tried adjusting numerous times, keep it well lubed but it just wont stay on for longer than a few minutes. Useless as it only adds more work and time to what should be a pretty simple job even for this chainsaw.
