Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flat out WOW If you were having any doubt about this saw “DON’T hesitate” it may be small and extremely light but this saw cuts thru small to med tree limbs like they are made of butter! Being a home owner with a lot of trees ‘mostly oak’ I needed a saw I could use anytime. Sometimes for just a single cut. I brought this baby home not knowing what to expect only to have my expectations exceeded! I have several other Stihl gas products but this is the first electric one. I should have known Stihl wouldn’t put there name on product they didn’t think was pro level. It’s fast, powerful and super easy to handle. You never have to worry if your up a tree if it will start. It’s instantaneous! Nearly no noise when running. Quietly doing the job super fast. This is no toy!! It’s a serious chainsaw!! It won’t wear you out. So if you’re still reading this and have any doubts don’t just buy it!!! You won’t regret it !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and powerful Very happy with my purchase. More powerful than I would have thought for a battery powered saw. Very lightweight makes pruning easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I hoped it would be I wanted a saw mainly for pruning and limbing. I actually would have passed, if it wasn't made by Stihl. Turns out it's everything I hoped for, and more. Limbing, the battery just about outlasts me. I use it it conjunction with loppers. I have, however cut a couple of backyard trees down to the ground with it. Its 12 inch bar does a fine job of cutting through a 14 inch tree trunk, if you work your way around it. The battery isn't really designed for that sort of work, but you can expect to get about 1/2 and hour from it, even in constant hard cutting. The little 1/4 inch chain makes a very clean cut, unlike the bigger work chains that tend to rip smaller limbs. I have a gas chain saw for the big stuff, but wanted a little electric saw to augment the hand pruners. This is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! Perfect little saw for a 58 yr. old woman who wants to get things done around here! Researched for abt. 3 mos. I use this Stihl for honeysuckle, limb and small (4-6 in dia) unwanted trees on our 4 acre property. We have been going to town around here! Hubby helps cut down the trees,I treat with herbicide and then I can go out later and chop up what is down on the ground all by myself! Saw is easy to use and I will be honest with you, by the time the battery is getting low, I am ready to be done anyway! Keep an eye on the oil though. I will be buying another battery for longer days and another chain as well. Not because I have to. Just as back ups! The other reason I bought this saw is because of the strong Stihl dealership repair and accessory service in my area. Why have a saw that you have to wait forever to use if you can't get it repaired or get a new part easier?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I bought this saw to take care of tree branches and other garden brush. It has worked very well and it cuts through logs well. No complaints. Can't comment on the longevity of the battery yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good second chainsay. I bought this saw as a second saw to release a pinched chainsaw. I have used it to trim trees and shrubs. I take it along with my gas powered Stihl chainsaw in case I pinch the gas saw in a limb. I like that it does not have to be pulled to start and is ready to go when I have chain oil and battery checked. I have found that it is well suited to many tasks around my yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is the first battery pack chain saw I have ever had. I always used gas saws before. This saw is so lightweight and handy does a good job, I would recommend this saw to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for homeowner. Really good for homeowner use. Battery lasts a surprisingly long time. Enough power for any 12"-18" cut. This is an expensive tool, but you save the aggrevations of mixing fuel and balky starts, earsplitting noise and toxic fumes.A fair trade to me. Recommended highly.
