Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool We decided to go with the battery tool because of the difficulty my girlfriend has starting the gas powered tools. This tool rips through oak and pine with ease, and is so quiet. Battery life is excellent, used it several times and have yet to find the battery down below 1/2 of full charge. The only negative is the weight, as noted by the other reviewers. We are very satisfied with the purchase and also purchased the string trimmer which uses the same battery. I'll review that tool separately. August 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet, Powerful I have been considering the battery powered line of tools from Stihl, because I hate when a tool won't start. For tools that I use a lot, weed eater, blower, etc, this is not a problem. Even my small (021) chainsaw runs often enough so that I don't usually have a problem. But my hedge trimmer, and my large saw, don't get used all that often, and I am always concerned that I need to fully drain the tank, and carb each time I use them. So when I decided to get a pole pruner, I looked at the battery line again.It is more expensive to start. For the complete set, battery, charger and tool, it cost about 25% more, but now I have the charger, and a battery, so if I decide to replace another tool, I will definitely consider battery power.So on to the meat of the review: The saw has plenty of power for the trimming I was doing. I was trimming branches 6-8" in diameter, and it didn't bog down at all. I used it for about an hour (obviously not running the saw all the time), and I got tired before the saw did. When I finished up, I still had about half the battery left, according to the LED display.The saw was heavier than I would have liked, but still lighter than the gas powered unit, and handled pretty well, even reaching higher than I probably should have safely done.I like the quiet of the saw, if for nothing else, I could hear when the limbs were starting to crack, so that I could get out of the way.All-in-all, I am very pleased with the saw, and I will consider other electric tools from Stihl. I don't regret this purchase at all. February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The saw cuts very fast, power is not a problem Just bought this saw today to trim some tall oaks around my cabin. The saw is heavy with the large battery but is well balance with included carrying strap.Saw cuts very fast using little power from the battery. I used the saw for over an hour going around trees trimming branch, the instant start and stop make for quick work and long battery life.The saw cost held me back for awhile, but this is a professional tool that is well designed and work extremely well. No ladder is needed to trim trees around a two story house. November 15, 2014
