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.

Okay for basic cleanup use
My first unit came defective with a leaking chain oil tank. After doing an exchange I was finally able to use it. Don't cut anything >3in diamter. Battery power is decent on the smaller battery, however a 2nd or the larger battery is definitely needed. You get a massive performance upgrade by going to a brushless 40V chainsaw unit available from other companies. Had to return the Craftsman due to that lack of performance.

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.

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

craftsman 12" cordless chainsaw

The chainsaw is exactly what I expected. It's very easy to use and the battery lasts a good amount of time. It's perfect for cutting smaller trees.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great chainsaw

This chainsaw works very well. I have used it to cut up some large tree branches that have fallen in my yard. The power is good and the battery seems to last a long time. This chainsaw comes with a 2 aH battery. I also bought the cordless lawnmower, which is pretty cool also. The lawnmower comes with a 2 aH and 4 aH battery. I can use the 2 aH battery on my chainsaw, but the 4 aH battery is too big, it won't fit in the chainsaw. Other than that, I am very impressed with this chainsaw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very Handy

This is my new favorite toy. I have lots of brush, softwoods, etc., in my yard. The battery life is very good and the saw works very well for a truly portable device. It is not a gas powered device and it is 12". I got exactly what I expected. Charges quickly. I also have the hedge trimmer so have two batteries and two chargers so I can go at either chore and have plenty of battery power. I also bought the blower which does much better than my 19.2v blower which I now use as a wanded vacuum. The 40v blower is quite useless other than for blowing dust out of the garage and its battery which I use as a spare for the chain saw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
