I had a gas chainsaw which I hated. People were always giving me wood when their trees blew down or were trimmed, I had a lot of wood! I had a terrible time with the gas trimmer so decided to go shopping. I went to a few places, but in desperation decided to go to Sears as they always have good products, They had an electric one although I was thinking of gas. I hesitated, but it was on sale, a Craftsman, had 4.0,HP, 15. AMP motor and Craftsman is good.. So I bought it. I LOVE IT. I'm out every day cutting wood, as even though we live in Southern California the nights are cool and we've had a little rain recently. I have no problem with it. - it's heavy and easy to use and cuts like a champ.

burn oil use a lot of oil yes use's oil up I read people saying it didn't use oil not mine does if you got power it works great 50 ft from power i cut down two oak trees to make room for a shed I'm very happy
I got this because my 18 in gas saw broke down. I was cutting up about 3 cords of wood when it died. I finished the last two cords with this electric chain saw. I was cutting 36 in rounds on pine trees and 25 in walnut no problem This saw worked way better than my gas saw. never lugged down or threw a chain. The best part is never having to start it. Cut so good my friends are going to to get one. It out cut there gas saws. I was using a 3000 watt generator as my power. Worked this saw 2 days straight hard. Will use it next wood cutting season for sure.
This chainsaw works great. It was great having an extra chain in case one gets dull while working. Also you can adjust and change everything without tools. Also compared to my other gas chainsaw it is nice to see the oil level instead of wondering if there is any left.
Extremely happy with this, my first chainsaw. Works as expected, no worries about fuel mixture, gunked fuel lines, and pull start frustrations. squeeze trigger and start cuttin'.
I looked at several chainsaws at other sites. The prices on comparable saws were lower at Sears. Sears has a greater selection of chainsaws than most other sites.Very happy with my purchase .Would recommend to anyone interested in buying a chainsaw

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.
