It is faster than a gas saw for this. This little guy was exactly what I needed. I will report back later on how that works out. I filled the bar oil, and it sat overnight. It starts after a pull or two every time.

Kobalt 40v 12" Final Thoughts
"Just cut up 4, 60ft oaks."
No gasoline storage issues, no smells. Never got tired pulling that dang starter cord! This is not a replacement for a chainsaw. Starts easily every time hot or cold. You must use Motor oil, not chain oil.
