Got my new electric saw first for me. I must say I am amazed at how well it cuts and how easy to operate. Add oil for chain lube and cut cut cut cut etc. till your tired it never seems to stop. This will be my last saw sense I am 65 so thank you Sears for a great saw 4.0hp Electric Chainsaw great value.
I had two Bradford pear trees to trim and one Sweet Gum to take down. A professional gave me a price of $700. to trim the two pear trees and leave the brush in a pile, and a price of $500. to drop the sweet gum and leave it on the ground.To haul all the wood and brush away was an extra $600. With the help of two brothers-in-law, a ladder, and the 4 hp electric chainsaw, I was able to accomplish all of the above much cheaper. With 150' of heavy duty (12-3) extension cord we were able to climb high in the trees for trimming and when on the ground the saw easily handled 48" circumference logs. We sawed for many hours and I still have not used the second chain and I have not sharpened the first chain. All of the wood was cut for firewood and I have distributed it to members of the family. So I feel like I have saved $1600, plus all of the free firewood that my family received. If you have electricity nearby, I highly recommend this saw.

This was purchased because we had a few trees to be cut down in our backyard. It has worked great for us. It has made the job easier and faster. I would highly recommend this product to family and friends!!

I bought this saw to replace a McCullock electric chain saw that really didn't live up to my expectations. This saw is extremely powerful and simple to use. You can tension and even change the chain simply in minutes. I have been running chain saws since the early 70's and this is definitely the best electric saw I have come accross, plus it has a craftsman warranty - what more can you want. Also great value.

I have previously used an electric pole saw that you can remove the small saw from the pole, but this was my first experience with a full size electric chainsaw. I used it to cut trees on my hunting property, mostly Juniper trees (often referred to as mountain cedar) but also some oak. I thought that the saw performed well. The biggest cut I made was probably about six or seven inches in diameter and had no problem with it. I liked the fact that it was lighter than my gas powered saws. I ran the saw using my generator with a one hundred foot extension cord and that presented no problems either. I cut brush for quite some time and the chain stayed tight and the saw did not use excessive bar and chain oil. I felt that the saw had satisfactory power and was pleased overall with the performance.
