Summary: I've had a number of petrol chainsaws over the years and this is the first cordless. The convenience of cordless is wonderful as well as a safety feature. And the quiet running is a big advantage to me too.
Summary: I bought this equipment when it first released for sale because a petrol chainsaw was too noisy for the back garden location at my mothers house and having a mini forest to cull. Seemed fine at the time, if a little slow.
Summary: Great supplier - arrived quickly - but returned to them quicker! Built from much plastic, its just unimaginable that this thing is going to last three years. And I would expect something costing circa 300 quid to last at least 10. Also astonishingly noisy for electrically powered machine.
Summary: I was rather concerned by the mixed reviews this chainsaw had received (which are shown under another listing for the saw complete with battery and charger) but I thought it would at least be worth trying for myself and I very pleased I did.
Summary: I wanted a small chainsaw that would be easy to handle, yet powerful enough to handle the requirements of our large garden (lots of trees, some damaged in recent storms). The Bosch AKE 30 does the jobs easily, and the battery lasts longer than I do (strictly, longer than my arm).
Very impressed with quality, performance and battery life

Summary: Well, I wasn't expecting too much of the battery life, I have to say. I knew that as Bosch always make good quality tools, it would be well put together, and it is. It was well packed by the manufacturer, and easy enough to assemble, though if you have weak hands, you will have a job tightening the...
Summary: I bought this to help me to prepare logs to feed our new wood burning stove.It has been really good for this purpose.It is very convenient not to have to worry about cutting through a cable or mixing 2 stroke mix and having to store it somewhere.Also the noise that a petrol chainsaw makes is awful.
Summary: I purchased this chain saw in January 2013 to complement a small and a medium sized conventional i/c engined saw. It does indeed prove useful when there is a lot of stop and start branch trimming.
