- Great Purchase
Great Purchase Bought to cut up logs for wood burner, it does the job brilliantly. Battery gives some 20-30 minutes cutting, and re-charges in under half an hour. Getting the battery pack off the saw can be a little awkward, otherwise perfect for the job.
- Good Power to Weight Ratio
Good Power to Weight Ratio The machine is surprisingly powerful for its size, and the battery seems to last well. It has cut easily through growing willow, which is quite soft, and through seasoned oak. It's small size and light weight allows it to get into small spaces and among dense growth, so is ideal for pruning/thinning work.
On the less than positive side, the chain has only half the number of teeth for its length than a regular chainsaw, and this, along with the slower chain speeds of cordless saws, makes for a jumpy and ragged cut. The tool has to be held firmly to the work. I imagine the chain would need to be kept very sharp or this would be exacerbated. For myself, I'd rather have had a cleaner cut and shorter running time, but that may not be everyone's view.
One other, very slight, gripe is that the advertised translucent oil reservoir isn't translucent enough. You can't tell the oil level without removing the cap.
For anyone who finds pulling a starter cord difficult or impossible, and who wants a chainsaw for occasional light use but also wants it to start straight away without hassle, I would reccomend this saw.
Note: the "features" and "assembly" tags are only given one star because it has no features and doesn't require assembly but they wouldn't let me leave them blank.
- Perfect for Logging
Perfect for Logging I use it for collecting wood for my wood burner it is so portable and also so quiet. I cannot believe the power and long lasting battery! Before I bought this item I used a traditional bow saw which was slow and frequently stuck when logs began to bend
It charges so quickly. I would not be without it, it's a pleasure to use and I would strongly recommend it.
- Bigger Battery Would be a Bonus
Bigger Battery Would be a Bonus A great little chain saw for smaller jobs. Ease of use is a big bonus. Would be an even better buy - even if cost went up - if the larger battery was provided as standard rather than having to order it as an extra. Another nice bonus would be if enough chainsaw oil cold be provided to be able to use the saw after unpacking.
- Very Good
Very Good Easy to use and effective.
- An Excellent, Easy to Use Chainsaw
An Excellent, Easy to Use Chainsaw This was my first experience of owning and using a chainsaw. It is an easy to use product. Just read all the instructions and advice and you can't go wrong.
Be patient, concentrated and careful, assessing the job to do before starting, making sure you are wearing all the right safety equipment. Being cordless and electric it is more manoeuverable and quieter than petrol or cable saws. I bought the saw to help manage some overgrown trees. I am expecting many years of satisfactory use from this saw.
Delighted After years of struggling with bow saw this cordless chainsaw is so easy to use with no effort required.
I cut through 8" logs with ease so I could carry them back to my car in 4 foot lengths.
I have only used on one occasion so far but the battery was still strong after about 20 cuts.
I'm looking foward to using it again - my stock pile will soon be overflowing.
- Great delivery, easy product to use
Great delivery, easy product to use First class service & delivery as a purchase experience. The tracking of the purchase through the supply chain gave me reassurance & it was delivered quickly. The chainsaw itself is a little under-powered but for most residential garden jobs it would suffice. It was simply a case of charge the battery, slot it in and away you go. The safety helmet was definitely the hard part, (please excuse the pun). It comes in bits & you have to assemble it all, including the inside of the helmet! Unless you're Superman I wouldn't bother trying. It's still sitting on a shelf, in bits!
