Summary: This thing is powerful. I used it to cut though a bunch of wall studs. It had no problem with that. I picked up some good blades that I'm sure helped but the saw didn't struggle at all. Very happy with this purchase.
The saw make quick work of the former and was easy to handle

Summary: Out of the box I tackled some ground level tree roots that resisted the ax, and a heavy plastic landscape ring that had been penetrated by roots and would not come out. The saw make quick work of the former and was easy to handle, with plenty of power, for the latter. A good buy!
