Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well thought out and designed, the saw-battery-charger-and chain, excellant. A pleasure to work with, no ethanol problems, the saw is quiet, very well made almost no vibrations, and combined with the new 1/4" 43 gauge chain the saw cuts and bores very well, with most applications the battery lasts longer than a tank of gas. I also have the option of working indoors, and in a suburban setting the neighbors love the saw too. I also like the fact that the saw is much easier to maintain, no air or gas filters,no mixing oil and gas, no spark plug or smoke during idling, no carb adjustments, and no oily mess on the muffler and saw, all I need to do when im done is blow off the chips with my compressor, wipe off the sprocket area as usual and mount a new chain. I have two MSA 160 saws, I also use standard 1/4" RMS chain. For precision pruning, firewood, storm clean-up or Carving, it's outstanding, I love my saw! October 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small but powerful! I work maintenance for a school and I use this saw a couple times a week. It is a phenomenal little saw! Don't shy away just because it has a battery! It's still packed with power! We keep the blade sharp as recommended and it cuts through large wet hardwood with no problem at all. We love it so much we are purchased one for all our other campuses! Great job Stihl! July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my chainsaw. I am a 55 year old girl (at heart anyway). I love my little chainsaw. I have the small battery to keep the weight down and it lasts plenty long for the amount of work I want to do at one time. Cuts through 6" trees easily making cleanup and trimming a breeze. Thank you Stihl for making a battery operated chainsaw. July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Chainsaw Purchased this as I had a couple trees and many large branches to removed from my newly purchased property. I'm not a fan of the smell of gasoline or the idea of breathing the fumes in. The saw it had the power that I needed, no emissions, and is so quiet. The running time is perfect with the Stihl AP-180. Since you're never running the saw continuously, you can get hours wroth of work in. Stick it back on the charger every time you take a break and you're good to go all day.I'm looking forward to using it for future housework as well as making it a necessary addition to my overlanding toolkit.
