Q:I understand that the ChainSaw package 2727-20 says Tool-Only, which mostly means the battery is not included, but in this case, does it also mean No Chain & Bar included as that is the case with some ChainSaws that get sold out?

      THIS BAD BOY CUTS!!
      Let me start by saying this 16" chainsaw is a BEAST!! The original bar/chain cut well but you will definitely pop the chain off many times. After the slight upgrade (from TSC) I haven't had a chain pop off yet! This saw will eat through batteries if you're doing hefty cutting but that is to be expected. Only use high output batteries for best results. I could not be any happier with my purchase, buy one today if you're contemplating.

        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!

          Broke in less than a weeks work
          Broken in less than a weeks work. Internal pin broke and retainer made of plastic. Gear driven tightener failed as well. Chainsaws need metal parts not plastic. The saw cut well and was well balanced. However this thing is a waste of money, as it won’t handle light work.

            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.

              Great unless you want to cut wood.
              Chain came of 13 times while downing and bucking up 3 small tree's. I know it sounds like fun to stop working 13 times to reattach the chain, and if your goal is to not cut wood, it can be. If you are cold during winter because you couldn't collect enough wood, you can always keep active by reattaching this chain over and over.

                Good mid-use Chainsaw
                Pros: Starts every time. No carb to clean. No gas. Quality. Cons: 12ah bat is costly & is known to be a paper weight within a year or 2. 12ah battery = about 2 hrs with med. trees. Does not compare to a gas chainsaw in speed or continuous run time. Can't freely turn the chain to sharpen it. Drinks bar oil very fast. I am a new wood-stove owner, and after this first season cutting with my Milwaukee Chainsaw along side friends with gas chainsaws, I am selling this and moving to gas.

                  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.

                    Watch what type of oil you use
                    Right out of the box I followed instructions and filled it with “loggers choice” bar and chain oil, held the trigger for a generous 30 seconds and chain was still dry. Held it again for 60 seconds while holding tip and looking for overspray, still dry as a bone. Removed chain and bar and still nothing coming out. Returned to store and exchanged for a new one. Filled with PowerCare brand off shelf at Home Depot and worked great.

                      Super convenient, powerful saw for medium use.
                      Love it. Few years of home use, up to the task every time. Every person I've lent it to wanted to buy one after using it. Onboard wrench storage makes it easy to change or adjust the chain on the fly. The 16" bar gives me ample clearance for any log I should be cutting with a battery powered saw, anything larger I'd use gas. Cut up the neighbors tree pictured on 8amp battery with ease, only overheated a few times. Wish there was a case, it drips a bit of oil from the bottom afterward.
