Chain trouble.
This started out real good like one of those tools you should have bought years ago. After using for the second and third time the chain kept falling off which was really annoying. I was using the saw to de-limb trees that I had already fell so it was not getting hard use. The second time the chain came off it broke the guard that covers the chain drive. Expected much more from this tool for the cost.

M18 fuel 16” chainsaw
The cutting power and torque is impressive. Cut a cord of mixed firewood (birch, spruce) 4” to 16” diameter on 2 fully charged 12amp hour batteries.

Excellent chainsaw
I bought the kit and it works amazing. Everything was as advertised. The saw made quick work of what needed to be cut up with very little effort. I haven't experienced any kickback with the way the chain is made as it is a low kickback kind. Light weight even my kid could handle and use it with no problems. It would be nice to have this come with two batteries as within 4 hrs it was dead.

no gas to spill
i used this saw on old hardwood performed good 12 amp battery was great to have on the tough stuff. it would be good if the chain turned faster as long as it doesn't comprise battery life. in most situations it is not an issue. its nice to use a quiet and light saw. i can even use it indoors, no smoke or warm up

m18 fuel 16in milwaukee battery powered chainsaw
Purchased this chainsaw for clean up around my property and it does the job well!!! I had a pretty big tree that was already cut down by a bigger gas chainsaw and the milwaukee chainsaw cut right through it(close to 18in in diameter) does good for normal size logs too.

Very impressed with results
I was really interested in this chainsaw and had been researching it for quite a while. After finally purchasing it I am happy to say it did not disappoint. On a full charge on the 12 ah battery I was able to make about 45 cuts through seasoned fir log chunks ranging from 8 to 14 inches. This created 72 firewood rounds. There is a bit of chatter starting a cut on smaller branches but I think it is a result of the torque and chain speed. With a few charged batteries I don't think I would hesitate to toss this in the truck and run up in the woods.

M18 Fuel Chainsaw
I finally got out to use the chainsaw yesterday, I live in west central Minnesota, it was 13 degrees out. I was cutting 6-10 inch branches and never had a problem, my gas one wouldn’t start. Glad I had the Milwaukee. I use the xc8.0 battery. Needed more wood for the fireplace. Thanks Milwaukee

I carried a gas chainsaw in my truck for offroading/camping, preparing firewood and it's been replaced by this chainsaw. I was not surprised and surprised simultaneously, I wasn't surprised that Milwaukee made a good tool but I was surprised just how many pro's/benefits this tool has over my 42cc gas chainsaw, I compared the two and the m18 chainsaw cut slightly faster even with the gas having a freshly sharpened chain but the main benefits of the m18 chainsaw are: Very quiet On/off (not constantly running) No warming up/adjusting choke Not having to worry about refilling or keeping mixed gas on hand It is Faster to GRAB and USE period. I notice I use it more because it is faster to use and more convenient, that in itself makes it more useful.
