        A:  I bought about 7 weeks ago. I paid the full price. I was hoping that I could get the 10% discount coupon from HD by the mail like used to be but this time we didn't get any coupon. It seems this brand has no sale at all.

            For a small electric chainsaw it has a lot of power. I’m clearing brush and medium size limbs from our property with it. The battery stays charged for several hours. Overall, a good saw.

            Can't find the right sized chain
            I had three experts sell me chains for this pice of junk and each time they didn't fit. Apparently they use some unusual seizes for this unit. Not worth getting something like this. Go with Stihl.

              Great chainsaw, I love it!
              You'll never go back to gas. This chainsaw cuts like a hot knife through butter. It's SO much quieter than a gas powered chainsaw, and to me it just feels like a safer tool to use. The two batteries can make it a bit heavy after a while, but a gas chainsaw gets heavy after a while, too. I'm very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend this saw.
