Useful but clogs easily and is heavy.

BillR, Amazon

  • 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. It has a novel system for clamping the chain and adjusting the tension on the chain, both without needing to use a tool. Another useful feature is the sight glass for checking the level of chain oil.

Ideal For New Chainsaw Users.

Mr Castlemead, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: I needed this product because cutting up large logs for firewood with a bow saw was tiring & time consuming, I also do some garden work where I am far from a power supply so a cordless model was the best choice. As I had never used a chainsaw before & I don't cut wood on a large scale or fell huge trees I didn't need a big expensive & powerful tool.

Really pleased with it

Gerald Appleby "Bob Appleby", Amazon

  • 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.

Very impressed with quality, performance and battery life

Mr. B. Solomons "Burl", Amazon
7 March 2013
  • 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 chain cover well enough and undoing it again. I have 2 petrol chainsaws I use for various prposes.

Great garden tool

diywannabe, Amazon
8 March 2012
  • Summary: I was rather concerned by the mixed reviews this chainsaw had received but I thought it would at least be worth trying for myself and I very pleased I did. As with many tools, I suspect whether this is right for you will be determined by the work you need it to do. If you have a forest to clear, this is not for you and you should type 'Stihl' into the search box, but if you are looking for a great household tool for general use, then read on...

Effective tool - but life was too short for me

Fandango, Amazon
30 January 2012
  • 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. I have only given the saw light use so far to take down a lime tree with an 8" trunk, but it went through it pretty quickly so I can't relate to other reviewer's comments about it being slow.

Excellent product - not only one of the cheapest ...

Timbo, DIY Tools
8 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Excellent product - not only one of the cheapest on the market but its light, very sharp and plenty long enough for the average hedge. Really pleased with it. I have a hawthorn hedge and a conifer hedge and it cuts both really easily.
