Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the thing for light work We recently bought a piece of property that had been logged about 10 years ago, so the re-planted trees aren't that big yet. But there is a lot of downed wood and we wanted to make a path through the underbrush. The battery powered saw is perfect; lightweight, but cuts very well. Bought an extra battery so we don't have to stop in the middle of the 20 acres and work our way back up to the house. I'm disabled and my wife is pretty small, so this works great for both of us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product from a Sceptic First off. I have owned several Stihl products and have loved the quality and performance of all of them. Now for the good stuff. This is my first electric battery powered chainsaw. I was a huge sceptic at first, knowing that I needed a new chainsaw, but was afraid to venture out to something with new technology. The weight is fabulous! Very light and very nimble. I opted for a 14" blade which does all of my yard work and most of my 4-Wheeling downed trees across the trail. The power is something considerable to a 300 series gas when in altitude except there is no loss of HP even at 11,000 ft! The batteries tend to last about 30-40 mins when constantly cutting but will last me all day when working outside. I carry 2 batteries and charges take a little over an hour each from dead. I would recommend 3 batteries if your going to cut non-stop all day so they each have time to charge. One note on the batteries though, is that 3 or 4 bars equals full power but 1-2 has limited torque and can only be used for cutting small branches, etc. The best part of the saw is the ability to just pick it up and cut...then set right back down...no starting or yanking the cord constantly and shutting off or waiting to warm up. My only real complaint is that I wish they made a slightly bigger saw for larger trees with a 16" or 18" bar but so far...I have only ran into needing a larger blade once. I also wish I had a better selection of chains to choose from as there is only one. If does cut very fine and sometimes I need a chipper.Overall. I would say, buy this saw if you want to carry on your ATV or Jeep or need a small saw for working around your property.(No keeping extra fuel onboard and risk of leakage). I would not buy this for a primary wood cutting saw but everything else. Ill leave those days to my 460!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful little saw I've had this only for a little while. So far done trimming of saplings in the yard. Easy to get down close to the ground. I think that it will be essential to have the 300 battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Chain Saw. First off, It's a really great saw. I use the ap300 battery with it. I've used it on small and big projects. Recently helped build a fence with this saw. Cut 36 6x6 fence post tops and about 30 1x6 boards and it still had 50% charge! No, it's not gonna cut down 3 or 4-foot wide trees all day. Yet it's 'still' a really good saw for trimming and felling anything under 25-30 inches. The only thing that I wish was better is the bar length. 14 inches is the maximum length for Stihl. If it was maybe say, 18in, then it would be the perfect saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from reliability and performance I have always been hesitant with new things or ideas, but once in awhile there is actually a product that is worthy of its claims and this one is it. I am totally happy and very satisfied with this saw. The ease of operation and the performance of this saw is a testament to your companies on going desire to make our job easier and safer to perform. I would and have recommended this product to family and friends alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw It's small and light, no mixing fuel or pulling a rope. The torque of the electric motor feels stronger than a similar sized gas saw. Each battery lasts about as long as a tank of gas. I am a Land Surveyor and occasionally have to cut a sight line. This way I can be much more stealthy about it. Sometimes carry it on my trailbike for downed trees.
