Pros and Cons after a year
First, I have owned about 6 chain saws (various brands), including one corded electric. This was my first cordless electric chainsaw that I bought because I already had Milwaukee batteries, etc. I have had and used this chainsaw for almost a year and here are my thoughts: PROS: Weight, handling, cutting, features, and longevity of included 12ah battery are all great. The 12ah battery is good for a day of work in my land maintenance application. Another benefit was this was my first 12ah battery among my stable of M18 batteries. This is the perfect battery for the new high velocity blower and other applications that need a robust battery. CONS: Biggest problem and reason I didn't give 5 stars: The chain comes off more frequently than any other chain saw I've ever used. I tighten the nuts with a ratchet wrench, so they should be plenty tight. This is very annoying and very limiting. Minor problem that has probably been corrected by now: The "helpful" chain direction label under the cover is backwards. I've included photos of that wrong label and the correct label on the outside of the cover. In both photos, the chain is shown in the correct orientation.

I'm impressed. Threw the chain.
Bought this to cut firewood a few times a year. I've owned a few gas and battery saws in the past. This is the only battery powered saw I'd recommend. Cuts through hardwoods reasonably and is fine for limbing up small stuff. My biggest battery is an 8amp hour and it definitely wont last all day if that's your hope. Things I don't love: I don't know enough about saws to properly explain this but I assume it has to do with chain speed. This saw has a tendency to grab logs and roll them towards you. With gas powered saws I never had that issue. I definitely have to brace any/every cut against rolling back to me. I wish the dogs were bigger to help with this problem. Bar and chain are thin. Seems like this makes the battery possible but it definitely feels flimsy. I threw the chain on the second day of use and I feel like I have to focus on not bending/deflecting the bar and chain.

Drops chain, Over oils chain
2min out of the box it dropped the chain. Ok, maybe they didn't tension it at the factory. Tightened it like a normal saw, it lasted another 10min of trimming tiny branches. It does have great power but with the delicate little chain and bar it seems handicapped. Also pumps a bit too much oil that gets all over. Nearly as messy as a 2-stroke saw. Being as this is the top offering from Milwaukee and costs >$450 Still I don't recommend it over other options out there that are cheaper or better quality.

Brilliant saw
I can't say enough about this workhorse. I've had professional lumberjacks up my property and they cannot believe that I've felled as many trees as I have -- and as big as they are -- with this saw. They were truly stunned. I started with an 18" Ego -- realized pretty quickly that it's an urban tool best used for limbing and cutting for firewood. Surprisingly the 16" M18 has run circles around the larger Ego. It goes through oil like a parched horse, but the power of the saw is undeniable. And if a pinch starts to happen, it's usually strong enough to pull you out of a jamb. The motor is quiet enough to start working at 6am without bothering the neighbors, and it cuts through 24" and larger trunks with no problems. The battery lasts a good long while, but I got a second battery so that I could stay out in the field for a few hours. I also like the chain tightening mechanism -- easy screw-in that requires loosening two bolts before you tighten the chain. And the tool you use is hitched to the underside of the body. Sometimes it's a pain to remove, but you eventually get the hang of it. No more worries about gas and pulling a cord to get started. This saw is a workhorse that will absolutely do the job without giving you any issues. When this bad boy dies out years from now, I'm going in right in and getting another one.

Just my personal experience
I am not a professional cutting trees or an expert on the field. But this chainsaw in comparatives with others that I own, this one is really messy with the oil and the chain-link its always getting off under minimum circumstances. No matter how many times I adjusted in less than 15 minutes the chain came off from the rotor. When to HD and returned, just a headache. It have power but need to fix the bar and chain-link...

Unfortunately, and swing and a miss for Milwaukee
First off, the pros: I love how quiet it is compared to a gas saw! I don't have to wear ear pro. Doesn't use mix, so one less liquid to haul around. Pretty lightweight. The power is pretty decent for an electric chainsaw. Cons: The chain tension requires a tool to adjust. Yes, my gas saw does too, but when cheaper electrics have tool-less adjustment it makes this one look bad. The tool is stored onboard the saw (a pro) but it takes another tool to dislodge it in order to use it. If you lose either tool, you're done until you find something else to use. Perhaps this is why it is so tightly secured? The biggest con and the reason I've given it a single star: The chain either falls completely off the bar and sprocket, or just jumps out of the slot. You have to stop, loosen the bar, remove the tension, reinstall the chain, tighten everything back up, and then get back to working. Maybe not a big deal if it only happens once in a while but yesterday after using it a couple hours, it had done it possibly ten times. I lost track it happened so often. You didn't tension it correctly you say! I tried it different ways with the same result. I've run a chainsaw for many years and worked on a tree trimming crew for some of that without ever having a chain jump. I've used gas and electric saws. This is the first time I've ever had a chain issue. And this is a brand new saw. I tried using it for a while to see if with a little wear it would settle in and quite jumping, but it didn't. The time I saved by not having to get out a gas saw and fill it up was greatly outweighed by the numerous times of fixing the chain. If a saw loses its chain, it is worthless. I am glad I have other Milwaukee tools because if this was the only one, I'd never buy another Milwaukee tool. Cut the price down by 3/4 or improve the product is my advice. It isn't worth the price tag or the Milwaukee badge. I'd expect this performance from a $75 saw, not a $300 saw (plus the battery price). Actually, now that I think of it, the Remington $75 saw outperformed this one. I will be trying my Stihl bar on the saw to see if the bar is the issue. Perhaps that may solve the issue. But really, a saw with a faulty bar? Please get it together Milwaukee, you are better than this!

To start with, I am bias towards Milwaukee brand tools. So I already had multiple 12ah batteries to swap out as I went (though other m18 batteries work, they aren't as capable in the high demand saws). The chainsaw was adequate power and has been consistent with cutting. I cut down 4 large dead pine trees (base roughly 14-18in), 1 small cherry tree (6ish inch), and a massive maple tree (base 30-34in across. Photo prospective makes it look smaller). Obviously I'm a little outside the expected realm of work for a 16in bar. Limbs under 8inches were nothing short of butter. Comparing to a small gas chainsaw, it's phenomenal, but compared to a large gas chainsaw... well.. don't. Battery life was decent but a little on the short side for this 12ah. Over all I'm happy with it, and the best part being I can leave it on a shelf for 3 years, come back to it, and not have to worry about carbs or fuel needing attention. The blower is still no where near backpack blowers (which is a given), and falls somewhere just shy of a quality plug in blower. It's over all pretty good, but I wouldn't suggest it for large scale use. There's not much to say on the blower other than, it's a pretty good mid range blower. The 12ah battery is massive by comparison to most m18 batteries, but petite if compared to some of the yard tool batteries like the ryobi 40v packs. It's a bit heavy but balances the larger tools well (such as these, or the fuel gen 2 saws). It lasts longer than family reunions in the smaller tools, but doesn't feel as exceptional with the high demand of these tools. I probably changed the battery 3 times with the largest tree (maybe 50-60 cuts), and once with each pine (20ish cuts). I would recommend these tools, however, they're a bit pricey. A nice addition if you already carry a lot of Milwaukee M18 tools. If you have need for a saw you can set down for 12mo at a time and not worry about the gas/maintenance, it's a great option. And chances are, it's cheaper than paying a tree service if you need it for more than one tree. If you just need a saw though, there are certainly cheaper options.

This saw is a beast!
This saw is a beast! I recently bought the Milwaukee m18 chainsaw #2727-21HDP kit on a special buy promotion. I recently used it to cut 2 dead pine trees down in our yard and was pleased with how easy it cuts and how balanced it is. After cutting both trees down and cutting them up there was still 3 bars left on the 12.0 high output battery! I also cut a couple of other limbs down on another tree. It’s so nice not to have to put gas in a chainsaw and then try and start it or lug a long extension cord around for an electric chainsaw. Just pop the battery in and put the bar and chain oil in and squeeze the trigger. The bar and chain oil reservoir has a clear window that makes it easy to tell what the level is.

Five stars for both so far. Blower has plenty of power, is light enough and can get the job done on one charge. The saw seems awesome so far. I used it to down a dead tree and to cut up a few other downed trees. Some stuff up to 8"-10" diameter and it went through it just fine. After the cutting I did it was only down 1 bar on the battery. Fairly light with the battery and very quiet too. Highly recommended!
