    This is a superior piece of equipment
    This chainsaw is incredible. I have a Stihl gas chainsaw that is of equal power to this electric chainsaw. This electric chainsaw is 33% faster cutting compared to the gas chainsaw. I cut wood for almost 1 hour the chainsaw never got hot in fact the entire chainsaw was cool to the touch. This is the most superior cutting tool I have ever used and I would recommend it to anyone. I will probably never buy another gas chainsaw. If I have to Cutwood where there is no electricity I will probably just ... read more buy a gas generator and use this chainsaw. Again I would recommend this chainsaw to anyone.

    The MSE-250 is great if you have electric power access
    I picked up my MSE-250 a few weeks ago and have used it on a downed tree in my back yard. The saw is awesome in that it has great power and gets the job done quickly and is a dream to handle.

    Great light saw for trimming
    I really like this saw for light duty around the home. The only downside is that the battery takes a long time to charge. Could you design a fast quick rate charger?

    Really powerful
    I was surprised at how powerful the saw was. Very high quality. It cut through the limbs like there were butter. I usually use a heavy duty Stihl gas saw but after 10 years of service I gave it to my son.

    Great for Average Homeowner
    I use a chainsaw primarily to cut firewood and fell the occasional dead tree on our 1/3 acre homesite. Although I have long experience with gas-powered chainsaws, I sometimes went six months without using mine, and consequently it would be hard to start and require more time nurturing it than using it. I traded in my gas-powered Stihl for this one and have been amazed at its power, cutting speed, light weight, maneuverability, and durability. I only need a 25' extension cord to reach our ... read more firewood stack, and with the 100' cord I use for my electric lawnmower I can reach all corners of our lot. I bought the 16" bar and have cut oak logs two feet in diameter with no problem. I maintain chain sharpness with a manual file and don't have to worry about fuel mixtures or winter storage. I've been using it for over a year and believe its superior construction and my infrequent usage ensures that it will give me many years of trouble-free service. I recommend this model strongly.

    Easy to use and does the job.
    It's light, and works great! It's pretty easy to use, and I was able to slice up a large fallen tree branch into 40 lb chunks to haul away without much problem. I wanted an electric chainsaw so that I wouldn't have to bother with stale gasoline or any other maintenance (besides cleaning and lubricating). The serviceable parts open up pretty easily, and replacing the chain is no problem at all. It's got a few safety features that will automatically cut power before the saw becomes a ... read more hazard. When I first bought it, I didn't understand what the spikes on the front of the saw were for, but I figured it out after using it for a while. I bought the shorter model since it was cheaper, and although it was barely longer than the thickness of the branch I was working on, it was perfectly adequate. I cannot really talk about reliability since I've only had it for a short while, and only used it once (for a few hours), but it worked without any problems for all of that time.

    Good "Little" Saw
    If you start looking around for an electric chainsaw you will quickly see two things. They look cheap and use special chains that may only have a cutting link every 10 links or so. NOT this saw it is a very legitimate saw. It uses the same bar and chain as the Stihl gas models. I do not do much cutting but I don't like dealing with cheap tools. This saw is basically the same as a gas 181 C-BE with an electric motor on it, and that is a good thing! Tool-less chain tensioning, automatic oiler, ... read more potential for longer bars and yellow chains. You get what you pay for, it is not as cheap as some electric saws but it is not a toy saw. I trimmed up an oak tree today (3/28/2015) and the wood was literately dripping wet and up to 10 inches in diameter and the saw had no trouble going through it. I just cleaned it up after cutting and I know it will be ready to go years from now whenever I need it again. This saw is oozing the typical Stihl quality that I have built the rest of my homeowner power tools around, gas and electric. If you want an electric saw for a homeowner look no further. I would buy it again but I will probably not have too as it will last a long time.
