we are using it to clear right of ways for telephone lines, it's light weight really helps when we are working in the bucket truck, we have cut trees larger in diameter than the 12 inch blade, and the battery last a long time before needing charge
This is garbage! Every time you try to use it the chain falls off and gets all tangled. Cant even but small branches.
This is a lightweight and easy to operate Chainsaw, I like it. However over time, you will have to replace the chain, and so far I have not been successful in finding good replacement chain blade. I bought several generic or no brand chainsaw chain blade as 12" inch compatible for Craftsman, however, they are a bit too long and they exceed the adjusting limit.
This chainsaw is great for small jobs. It will easily cut trees of 6" to 8" in diameter. The batteries last much longer between charges than I expected. When sharpening, one must pull the chain along by placing the file in a link and pulling the link along with the file. The chain does not move by pulling the chain with one's fingers.
Terrific small chainsaw. The chain tightening system is to cool.
Lightweight, powerful, no gas to mess with. Great for small trees and trimming.
