Black & Decker is a name in tools that I know and trust for making quality products. I was happy to see that they make this battery powered chainsaw. We have a gas chainsaw but like many others have noted, starting it takes more energy than using it. I really needed something easier and faster to use. We're mainly cutting Aspen and some pine for firewood.
As soon as this came in the mail, I pulled out the battery and the charger and got it to cooking. It took about 5 hours as the booklet said to reach a full charge. During that time, I read through the instruction booklet and put the saw together. That didn't take more than a few minutes and requires absolutely no tools.

Since my gas powered Stihl had been stolen earl...
I was hesitant because I have had electric saws that were useless. But I thought, after weeks of thinking about it and really tired of rebuilding the gas powered chainsaw, I'll give it a try. This thing is a beast. I have cut four trees down with it (two medium and two smaller trees). It does go ...
I, a female, bought this for myself because my husband considers himself a “gentleman lumberjack,” and refuses to use any power tools for cutting down trees or trimming branches; I trim as many tree branches as he does, and got sick of having to use a handsaw and took matters into my own hands, but with power tools in hand!
