Great Little Workhorse!
Great chain saw for work around the yard. Ran it all afternoon and never had any problems at all. Easy to set up even though it came with the WORST instruction manual I have ever seen. Fun, lightweight, strong and looks to be very well made. I love this chain saw and highly recommend it for the casual chain saw user. No gas/oil to mix and start up is just a button squeeze. Full charge in just over an hour.

Great little saw for its intended purpose......
I'm pleased with the saw, it has plenty of power to cut small stuff. I was using it to cut useless construction lumber to fit in a burn barrel this week end. The saw came with a low charge and with in 45 minutes it was fully charged. Sunday I went to work. Sawed a lot of plywood, 1x and 2 x 4's say 40 cuts or so and it still had most of it's charge. Went to charge after I was done and the charger was dead. Manual says if this happens take it back to the store for a replacement. More to come after I get a new charger.

Cordless Chainsaw

I was a little wary of buying or using a cordless chainsaw. But, I've had problems with gas and oil chainsaws ( engine problems - fuel problems - starter cord and handle problems and tune up problems ). Plus, gas and oil chainsaws can be heavy and difficult to manage effectively. Also, the electric chainsaws have been underpowered, and require long, heavy and expensive electric cords. The electric cords tangle easily are difficult to manage and take quite a lot of room to store properly. They are also dangerous to use if you get them wet or it starts to rain. Also, if you connect multiple electric cords,, they can come apart at any time. Of course, the main problem with using electric chainsaws is the real possibility of cutting the cord with the saw. Finally, I decided to buy a rechargeable - battery chainsaw from my local Sears store. I was pleased with the ease and speed that the battery charged up. I was also pleased that the battery lasted a long time and the chainsaw did not seem to lose power. I was able to handle the saw with relative ease and with reasonable care did not feel in danger. I'm almost 70 years in age but cut down two trees and trimmed them so they could be picked up at my curbside. I cleaned up the saw put it back in the box and stored it away without feeling sore or tired. The blade is only 12 inches long but it did everything promised on the box and in the instructions and the warranty. I would recommend the cordless chainsaw from Sears. .............R.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I love this chainsaw!

This is a great tool. I wanted a chainsaw that would start without having to pull a cord. Because of the lithium ion battery this starts up every time. As a 70yr old woman, this is what I needed. I have a lot of tree trimming to do around here. Now I can do it. I'm so glad I bought this.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice for little limbs and shrubs

I got this to use around the yard to trim small limbs and shrubs. It does okay for that but not for anything too big because it doesn't go fast enough. I recommend it for small jobs. Its nice and light weight and handy and easy to just grab and go,that's why I got it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Electrifying Saw

I went to Sears to replace my old gas chain saw and decided to try this battery powered saw. I can get more than an hour of cutting before it needs to be recharged. And the battery recharges quickly, about 1 hour. The saw is lighter and easy to handle than my old saw. It also cuts as good as my old saw. I don't use my chainsaw often and my old saw required a lot of work to keep it ready when I needed it (gas stabilizer to prevent stale gas, avoid storage in humid garage, etc.). On my new saw, I pop in the battery and am good to go.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman cordless chainsaw

I bought this for my husband for Father's thinking that it was a gas driven chainsaw. He was hesitant, at first, as he has never used a cordless chainsaw before. He read the posted reviews and was willing to give it a try. He was very pleased with it's performance as he is now using it only around the house. We would recommend this chainsaw for the homeowner.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Saw as advertized...

Best part is that it does not need gas, i.e. pull start, etc. The 40 volts gives it enough **** to do a small task, but don't expect to cut all afternoon. Takes time to recharge.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
