It cut through like a knife through warm butter. But in fairness, there is no other choice. I will report back later on how that works out. Well balanced, even with the 4 amp battery. Time to sharpen it or buy a new chain.

Hitachi CS33EB16 Final Thoughts
"We burn wood for heat."
Hard 1st start, but great after that. This is an essential for any home-owner. My two other new chain saws do the same thing. I've included photos of what I took down. I think battery life is great as well.
