I honestly didn't think this saw was going to be nearly as useful as it is. It cuts through up to 7" Trees so far. Very easy to handle and battery lasts for a good few hours. Gotta say I'm not usually impressed, but this saw is great.  see moreof sean's review

    For small jobs around the yard this chainsaw is great. For limbs about 8 inches or less it does short work of them. I would recomment that you get a second battery, the battery last about 4 hours on a charge.  see moreof Pattie Cake's review

      Price and service thru Target was very good. Delivery thru UPS was somewhat problematic, but it was during the major weather situation in the Midwest and this was shipped from Arizona. Although , I have not had a chance to actually cut wood yet. Quality appears good. Saw came with the new upgraded b...  see moreof elroy's review

        Leaked chain fluid out the bottom frame after first use. Functions good otherwise but inconvenient.  see moreof Jcorgan's review

          I bought one of these saws for hubby's birthday since it was a fantastic price...But buyer beware. He was so excited after watching reviews online. It is definitely lightweight and easy to use. The first one came in and when filled with chain oil leaked like crazy. All the oil drained in a matter o...  see moreof grandmaof6's review

            I bought this 40v chainsaw because I already have the line trimmer and leaf blower that use the same battery. It's great for cutting up the limbs that blow down. It doesn't do as well cutting firewood , there's just not enough battery. But I got to do the quick cutting after a storm and such, so I ...  see moreof CutterBuck3's review

              Very convenient saw for small jobs. I used it to cut down a pine tree that was about 15 feet tall and 8" to 10" in diameter. With one charge I trimmed around thirty 0.5 to 0.75" branches and forty 1" to 1.5" branches and cut the trunk into 10 logs. It cut fine, but the chain speed is considerably...  see moreof PaulS's review
