Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent limbing and pruning tool This is a well designed and manufactured tool. I ran it on a 4ah 12v battery, and it pulled pretty strong for 40 minutes - not too shabby for such a small saw. Although the advertised maximum cutting thickness is 3”, I tested it with deadfall Manitoba Maple around 5” thick - the saw handled it without bogging at all, which is impressive considering the little .043” gauge “Full House” chain! I’m not sure that I like this type of chain on this saw, and I think that chip-clearance might be impairing the efficiency of cutting (it was throwing sawdust, not proper chips). I went and picked up a Stihl .043” skip chain, and I’ll test it on the same log to see what happens. This is a good piece of kit, and I would recommend it for yard work and light-duty limbing of felled trees.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't know how it works yet Ordered the chainsaw online, read all the details, drove 45 minutes to the store to pick it up, drove home, only to discover that you have to purchase chainsaw oil, which is not included. Wish that somewhere in the description it had told you you have to purchase oil before using it. The oil on its own doesn't meet minimum shopping requirements so now I'm forced to buy something else that I don't really want and have to drive another 1.5 hours to get the oil. Not only that but the store is closed for today. This should be mentioned in the product description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very usefull chain saw For small trees, I really like this chain saw, it should have existed a long time ago. The only difficulty was the first time removing the battery for charging, it fits very tight and I had to pull really hard. Pressing the 2 locks was not the issue. I wonder if one day a carrying case will exist for this saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short lifespan It stopped working after 3 uses. While it worked, it was a great little tool. Powerful, easy to use. Sped up garden clean up jobs immensely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect Saw For My Needs This replaces a cheap Amazon product. The saw is safe, rugged, comfortable, powerful for its size and has a decent lasting battery. I have cut up to 3" to 4" diam. dry hard maple and the saw performed well - 30 or 40 cuts on one charge. I bought it primarily for pruning and it has proven to be ideal. A second battery might be a good idea so you can swap them out. I would definitely recommend this saw to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Sturdy and Reliable I used this trimmer for on small trees and branches a few weekends ago with a 6.0 Ah spare battery. I cut down some small trees that were thicker than the recommended maximum thickness with ease. I was cutting quite a lot and had no overheating issues. I just tightened the chain once or twice. Watch out for the oil level, it goes fast. It feels like a mini AK well built and made for abuse!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My absoulute favourite new toy!!! My absolute favourite new toy!!! Great cutting power for its size and battery lasts a long time and charges quickly. It goes with me for walks in the woods and we have been cutting and clearing new trails for at least a month now. Great for limbing and clearing, cuts though 3" easily and I have done up to about 5". Easy to carry and handle for at least 2 hours.

Does this comes pre oiled?

Asked by: JUN123
If by pre-oiled you mean the oil which lubricates chain, there is a small tank on the unit into which you pour the chain saw - similar to a gas powered chain saw only smaller. In my experience, each fill of the oil tank with chain saw oil lasts about as long as the battery so usually I check and fill the chain oil each time I change the battery. A very useful tool indeed .
