Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 buy a gas generator and use this chainsaw. Again I would recommend this chainsaw to anyone. November 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by For a person who needs one only a few times a year it is perfect I've had mine now for over 5 years and it is always ready to go. Unlike the gas models . I use mine on oak and cedar trees. In the five years I've only had to replace a switch. September 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not A Professional Saw Unfortunately, I can't recommend this saw to anyone for several reasons. Above all, it lacks power and will trip the overheat circuit frequently in light use on softwoods (pine). I double checked my power cord rating and it is correct. The saw has high torque on initial bite, but loses power and speed quickly as you let it feed itself. The overheat circuit will activate once every 9-10 cuts. I'm not pushing this saw hard at all. The ergonomics are difficult to get used to and make using the saw awkward. There is one thing I do like, which is that you can roll your wrist forward to engage the chain brake without letting go of the saw grip. It is not particularly quiet either, I still had to wear ear protection. The design does not allow the shavings from the chain to exit the sprocket area/housing very well - this likely contributes to the heat issue.I'm a Stihl fan (also own a ms311 + ms461), but this was a terrible purchase. If I could get rid of it I would. April 20, 2015
