      My gas chainsaws will be retired
      I am struggling with 2 aging Huskies, both with lots of hp and 16” bars, but hard to pull start, with repairs taking weeks to get returned. I needed an option. I recently added three 5 Ah Milwaukee 18v batteries with a new 1/2” hammer drill / driver, and decided to try the chainsaw. Wow! This 8” bar is really working well for downfall, trail widening, and fenceline clearing around the 200 acres. Easy to carry with me at all times on the Gator, and with a small 12 oz bottle of Canola oil for chain lube, thus avoid spreading a gallon of oil a year around the property. I am looking at adding the Milwaukee 14” bar to handle the trees over 12” better. Great tool!

        Used almost daily
        The hatchet was recommended to me by a friend. I was skeptical I wanted a gas powered chainsaw blah blah blah. Took his word got this and happy I did. My new property needed a bit of maintenance and this saw has put some work in! I burn through a lot of bar chain oil. But other than that no complaints.

          Bought this to trim some limbs at my Mom’s property. Turns out a tornado broken some larger limbs. This saw is great and handled everything quickly and safely. Highly recommend.

          Versatile Saw
          I use to cut cordwood that I get delivered when I get some pieces that are too long. Also to prune some trees in my yard. Picked up a 14" bar and chain to bring to a hiking trail I frequent and clear some 16" hardwood blocking some culverts. The Hatchet and 14" bar and chain fit in my backpack. I took the bar and chain off while I carried it in my backpack. I picked up the heavier duty battery and everything works well. I do feel like the bar oil will continue to drain even when not in use.

            Handy Tool
            This is a handy tool for trimming tree limbs or shrubs. It uses the M-18 battery that fits any of the M-18 series Milwaukee tools. The handle allows one-handed use with another stabilizing handle for awkward positions. The 8 inch bar is sufficient for most limbs, and actually , if a larger bar is needed, it is probably best to get a bigger saw. The chain speed is not as fast as a larger saw, but will trim and prune with ease. It is a perfect tool for small quick jobs !

            Cheaper Alternatives
            I live in Upstate NY and heat with wood. I have a dozen Chainsaws, but none by Milwaukee. Most are Gas, but I do have a few battery powered ones; which for quick jobs, or up in trees, work great. This 8", narrow kerf Chain, is for the new Milwaukee 8" HATCHET Pruning Saw (321506905) [which looks awesome!]. The mating Bar is the Milwaukee 8" (322550022). The chain's Specs are 8", .043, 3/8, 33; which are the same as the Powercare Y33 (100674931) and the Oregon R33 (318457978). The chain fits many of the 8" Polesaws on the Market. If you have the HATCHET, or giving one as a gift, you might want to stick with the Milwaukee Chain, but for someone like me, who goes through a lot of chains, I find Oregon makes a great chain (they might have made this one?), at a much cheaper price. The packaging states, "Made In USA" (see pic).

            Used as intended ... it can't be beat.
            This 8" (Milwaukee brand) cutting chain is the replacement for the M18 FUEL 8 in. Hatchet (Milwaukee's Pruning saw). Used to prune small branches, it just can't be beat. The chain is as tough as the larger, log-cutting chains and works wonders on 4" diameter (and under) branches. I've used the Milwaukee Hatchet on larger logs too (up to 8"), and while it takes some time and effort, the chain will cut through the wood. The battery will give up long before the chain ...BUT, do keep chain oil in the Hatchet's reservoir! I've owned and heavily used the Hatchet for almost two years and am still on my first chain. Got this one as a backup.

            Excellent tool
            I recently received the Milwaukee - Milwaukee 8 in. Pruning Saw Chain with 33-Drive Links. I have used this saw for many little jobs, to have the replacement chain handy is great. These chains last a long time as a home owner doing odds and ends trimming of trees and cutting down small tress it nice having a back-up. The chain is made with good quality material and holds a edge well. I differently would recommend this saw and extra chain to anyone.

            Fast Cutting Chain
            This is the 5th weekend I've gone out with teams of volunteers removing felled trees after Hurricane Ian. My new Milwaukee M18 FUEL HATCHET 8" Pruning Saw has seen heavy use. My previous short bar saw was an object of ridicule. That all stopped with the M18 FUEL HATCHET. It immediately gained respect when I quickly chewed through some rather thick branches on a 50' downed tree. This last weekend I had two buddies ask me how they could get one. It has proven invaluable in situations where a long bar gas chainsaw is too unwieldy and heavy to be safe. I was grateful to receive this OEM replacement chain Milwaukee #49-16-2750 custom designed for the M18 FUEL HATCHET. It cuts smoothly and has the right balance between aggressive cutting and anti-kickback. The M18 FUEL HATCHET with this designed-for chain cuts several times faster than my other short bar chainsaw. Perhaps it is the narrow kerf design. I have not needed to change out my chain yet as I've sharpened it on occasion when waiting for the next FEMA work order. My buddies carry spare chains so that they can swap out a chain while at a job without having to stop too long. Now I have a spare. Awesome tool! 5 Stars.

            Fast-Efficient-Quiet Chain Operation!
            This replacement Milwaukee 8 in. Pruning Saw Chain, with it's 33-Drive Link design and razor sharp cutting teeth, works fast, smooth and quietly dispenses the cutting task, even with solid oak 6" tree limbs! Cuts are very clean, vibration is minimal during operation and the chain is weather resistant for long life. The design also minimizes kickback, meeting the ANSI Standards for chain saw operations!
