Amazing Chainsaw

I noticed the review about the chain constantly falling off. I had the same experience at first and almost returned the chainsaw. It is a little work to get the chain back on, but I did and I needed to finish the job I started so this time I torqued the chain nice and tight. It worked! And worked and worked! I realized the chain needs to be a little tighter than I'm accustomed to with gas chainsaws. Now I find this chainsaw amazing and prefer it very much to gas. It has cut everything I've thrown at it without a problem including two 30 foot 14" cedar trees which I continued to cut into firewood. I cut each tree on different occasions, and each time I cut the tree down and cut it into firewood length pieces on one charge with charge remaining. I also own the SnowJoe snow thrower which has worked well for me.

Nice saw


I bought this saw for the convenience. I was tired of messing with two stroke engines. I love how fast I can always use it. I don’t use it for cutting fire wood. I use it for clean-up and trim work. And most often that involves only a smaller number of branches. But I also used it to cut a 15” black walnut tree. I did have to go slow on this but it cut it. It’s not the most powerful chainsaw, but it works fine for what I need.
I would definitely buy it again.
The saw is made pretty solidly.
Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is the power. For 5 stars in my opinion it would need to have a bit more power.

Exceeds my Expectations


The saw works well, I cleaned up a lot of excess wood up by my camp. Compared to a gas saw it is very quiet too. The 40 V battery life is what blew my socks off. I worked for around 3 1/2 hrs (off and on) and had it still held a good charge.

Excellent battery powered chainsaw


This product works--and is ideal if you already use the same SnowJoe 40V LiIon batteries for snowblower. I have two batteries--one is always a spare, ready to go to complete the job. Reliable, rugged, powerful and easy to replace the chain. Instructions are pretty easy to understand, even for a technically challenged person like me! I use it on trees, shrubs and even junipers which are very tough to trim. The lubricant port is the only drawback--difficult to read the level, you have to guess when it's low, and easy to overfill and overflow it.

Easy to use lightweight chain saw


I was an absolute novice as I had never used a chain saw before and was frankly a little afraid of them. I was able to assemble the chain saw with only a little difficulty getting the chain correctly in place. The directions in the owner’s manual were not as clear as I would have liked regarding getting the chain in place, but I found a helpful video online. Once assembled, I added chain and sprocket oil and ventured off to cut up a tree that had fallen during a recent storm. Even with the battery in place, the chain saw was not too heavy and was easy to maneuver. The battery life has been terrific thus far. I appreciated some of the helpful tips as to how to cut up trees since I am a novice. I would not hesitate to recommend this item.

Very useful for my tree removal project


I am removing a lot of small to medium (up to 6 inches diameter) from my property and amazed how rapidly this saw cuts. Cut down a 4 in tree and sectioned it into 2 foot lengths (4 cuts) in about 90 seconds. I have not been able to run the battery down past 2/3 charged since it doesn't take long to cut and then I shut it off. Neighbors (and me too) at how quiet this saw is.
