Rated 3 out of 5 by from Powerful little saw with some improvements needed Its very robust for its size, easy to forget it is a small saw, but it is small and performs big. I suppose being small will save some people from biting off more than they can handle. I used my new saw for 20 minutes, battery didn't indicate any loss of power, but after only 20 minutes it was filthy, coated in oil and sawdust. I know too much bar oil is better than too little, but its too messy, I think they REALLY need to adjust the amount, my gasser can be used all day and doesn't require a clean up, this saw requires a clean up, or it drips oil on what you place it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The future of tree work! We lost two 60 foot/18" diameter pines at the cottage this fall. I grew up working for an arborist and have used all types and sizes of gas chainsaws. I started with my gas chainsaw but quickly switched to the Milwaukee. For a few hours work this saw was lighter, quieter, easier to handle and cut just as well if not better. Didn't even have to replace batteries. I used a sawzall for some of the smaller branches which I'd never really done before and it worked great. Keep the guide area clean and your cuts straight and this saw will go all day. Definitely the future of tree work for me.(note that while you can see a gas chainsaw in one picture, it got used for less than 5 minutes!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from M18 Fuel 16” Cordless Chainsaw Kit Charged the battery, added chain oil, worked like a charm right out of the box. Spent 4hrs limbing trees (probably solid hour of cutting) and showed no sign of getting tired. Much lighter than comparable size gas model. Should have bought one of these 40 years ago.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with product Bought this chainsaw about 2 years ago. Was really happy with its initial performance, but after storing the unit for a few months, I found my chainsaw to be covered in bar oil. I took my chainsaw in for warranty repairs twice, at an authorized repair shop, and after both times the saw still leaked. Finally, after all the frustration, I decided to email Milwaukee to ask for a replacement since it seems my current unit is defective--but haven't heard from anyone on their end. I am a fan of Milwaukee power tools since I use their drills, porta-bands, reciprocating saws, impacts, etc., but I cannot recommend this tool. Save yourself the headache and time and get something that won't leak and make a mess of your workshop and interior of your vehicle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more pollution!! No more noise!! Easy to use! I've had this product for over a month now, I've downed a 14" maple with it and it never complained. My wife loves using it, she's able to start it very easily as she says. The only complaint I would say is that it is a little heavier than my Stihl MS170, it does have a 16" blade over the 14" from the Stihl though. Also, be careful when you force it like you can with a gas chainsaw. The battery will go in protection mode and you need to charge it to get it out, at least that is how I did it. I had only used it for about 10 minutes and the battery was at 3 bars when it happened. I did have other 9A batteries as backup though, so it was no big deal. I love Milwaukee products and this was the last one to get for my outdoor tools from Milwaukee.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad, nothing special I tried this saw out a few times. As a line maintainer I cut the odd tree and a lot of hydro poles. The saw is quiet and will cut small poles however struggles through larger hard pressure treated poles. The chain is very small and doesn't clear as much wood as our typical gas saws. We typically use stihl 261 and although the stihl is a few hundred more it out preforms by far. I also block firewood at home and I would never be able to cut 5-6 cords of hardwood with this chainsaw. It just doesn't have the power. For limbing it works ok although the chain comes off a lot which gets very annoying. I was hoping for more out of this saw and maybe for the homeowner looking to clear the odd branch or small tree it would be ok, but other then that you just can't compare to a good gas powered saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Power and Very Quiet Purchased about a month ago and have gone through three battery charges worth of work. I am impressed with the power, ease of handling and the longevity of the battery. Two negatives are one :- chips and sawdust are not cleared as well as you would expect and two :- chain oil feed is not adjustable and feeds more than required. These two result in having to remove the side plate and clean the oily chips and sawdust more frequently then I would expect.

Can I use a 3.0ah M18 Fuel battery from my cordless drill in the chainsaw? I see that it says it uses a 12.0ah, but wondering if the 3.0ah will do.

Asked by: Jayton
Hello Jayton! Our M18 FUEL 18V Li-Ion Brushless Cordless 16-inch Chainsaw Kit with 12.0Ah Battery (2727-21HD) will take any battery part of the M18 system.
