        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.

            M18 High Output XC6.0
            I have a few of these. I think they are the best size/weight to output. I recently got the M18 XC6.0 FORGE; which might be my new favorite?

              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 !

                Excellent tool
                I recently received the Milwaukee - Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 8 in. HATCHET Pruning Saw (Tool-Only). This is a excellent tool to have in your tool box. I cut a 5 inch tree down in seconds. Very easy to use and chop up the tree. light and easy to control. This will be very handy in the spring when I clean out some of the over grown areas. I differently would recommend this tool.

                Professional Level Pruning Saw
                We're in weekend 4 since Hurricane Ian. Last Friday I received the Milwaukee M18 FUEL HATCHET 8" Pruning Saw just in time for my Saturday Shift with teams of volunteers responding to FEMA Community Crisis Hotline requests for clearing felled trees and debris. These hurricane wind felled trees need to have all the non-ground contacting branches and limbs cleared away before decisions can be made on how to properly bring the main trunk down to ground. This is where the M18 FUEL HATCHET shines. It has the guts and performance of a small gas powered chainsaw. One of my buddies took video of my first cuts and both his and my reaction to this saw chewing through a 7 1/2" diameter branch. It is legit. I love the ergonomic, secure feeling two-handed operation with the knuckle guard for the forward hand. I like the natural feeling Trigger Lock-Off safety. I was able to limb several tall felled trees efficiently and safely during my shift. Saturday evening I still had three bars on the High Output XC8.0 M18 battery I was using. Outstanding Saw. The Ergonomics, the Power and Endurance of the M18 HATCHET impressed both me and my team. It stopped cold the ribbing I was getting about my other short bar chainsaw. This is the perfect tool for the job to be done in the weeks ahead.
