Hitachi CR18DL lithion Saw: overpriced trinket

Salamander, Amazon
23 February 2015
  • Summary: Someone wrote "great Hitachi quality"!!!! Yikes. I bought this saw. It is easy to overload. Sawing something with 3" diameter, it will shake like Ronny Regan suffering from Parkinsons. The big 3Amp Battery lasts long enough to cut 2 or 3 little 3" trees - if I am lucky.

I absolutely love this saw

  • Summary: I absolutely love this saw. I'm a petite woman and own a small hobby farm. I can't begin to tell you what a great help this tool has become. I have lots of brush -- some of it quite large and it cuts through the stuff like butter. I had a tough time handling a chain saw -- this is so much easier.

Instant Battery Death

  • Summary: I'd be lucky to cut through a couple of 2x4s before the battery dies. I don't know if mine is defective or not, but obviously this makes it useless. The circular saw goes through batteries really quickly as well, but you can at least get a small or medium job done with two batteries.

  • Summary: I have bought this saw based on the review on this blog but have not tested it as yet doing real work. I intend to use it for cutting bamboo and other woody material while volunteering at my local botanical garden.
