My last job before retiring was running a forestry crew that ran chainsaws all day for seven or eight months a year. As well, for 20 years I cut all the firewood I could use to feed my woodstoves. Now I'm nearly seventy and while I can still handle a saw quite well, I hate pulling the starter cord, particularly after the machine has been sitting and doesn't want to instantly start. Being a semi pro, once I decided to purchase a battery powered chainsaw, I looked at the top professional brands, which are more than twice or three times what this saw cost. But I read reviews and still have an excellent gas saw, so I decided to try this. I couldn't be more impressed. I had a big twelve-inch diameter white birch come down in the last big storm. I couldn't believe that I got most of it cut up... Read full review

I originally bought the 20-volt B&D chainsaw and I love it, but it doesn't have the power I really need. I decided to add this one to my collection.
We heat our house here in AK with wood and it takes a lot of wood to make it through 9 months of winter (Just kidding! but just barely).
My wife has been wanting a chain saw for some time. I did not feel a gasoline saw would be safe for her and she always wanted to use mine. Iwheeeed to find a saw that was light, safer than gasoline saws, and had a long lasting battery. And I needed it in a price I could afford. So far this Black ...
I'm new to chainsaws. I purchased a gas power 22 inch beast that I could never manage to get started. I decided I probably wouldn't need that much power so I opted for this "cleaner" and smaller/weaker option when I sent that one back.
When I received this and "cranked it up" for the first ...
The biggest tree I have used this on was about 12 inches, took all day but this chain saw worked excellently. It eats through motor oil like it's going out of style, so be sure to have some nearby when using this. I have cut roughly 2.5-3 cords worth of wood and it's still holding up strong.
The battery last about an hour with constant use and this didn't bother me because I already had another battery from B&D Hedge clippers, so I just kept changing them out.
1 year update, cut through about 15 trees, you can see how big they are in the picture.
