Chain Saws Direct Recommended

The Dolmar ES-173-A electric chainsaw provides plug in convenience with power and durability for residential and commercial applications. This saw offers gas like performance without the gas, noise and smells you actually get from gas chainsaws.

The powerful 14.5 amp Makita motor offers more than enough power to get through tough branches with ease. The motor provides optimum chain speed which makes limbing and cutting projects easy. With its internal metal construction, you can expect years... more

Professional Chain Saw, Contractor Quality
I have had 4 electric chainsaws of consumer quality, what this means is that the drive gear is high grade is plastic or Teflon material. If you are doing several days of cuttings the main drive gears lasts about 8 to 24 hours of heavy use. Then the gear cogs strip. It cost about 1/2 the cost of the Chain Saw to have this gear replaced.

The Main Chain Drive Gear of this Electric Chain Saw is high quality metal. It has the power of a consumer gasoline engine chain saw with a 14.5 amp motor.... more

"Rating based on 3 days of clearing large trees off of rental property. Under heavy use the chain needed to be sharpened after 8 hours of continuous use on hard wood trees. I will never buy another electric chainsaw with a plastic drive gear."

Piece Of Crap
I haven't even used it, and I have to take it to a repair center, which is 30 miles away. If you want a quality product, pick another brand.

Works, Leaks
Works as expected for a high-price saw. But you can't store it vertically (hung by the handle) with bar oil in the tank - it leaks continuously: That's fine if stored in a dirt-floor barn, NOT fine in a suburban garage!

So after each occasional use, I have to drain all the bar oil out before hanging it up. I bought this to supplement two gasoline-powered saws that I have to drain out oil and gas mixture after use, thinking with this saw I'd have a saw ready to use without prep. Not going to... more

Chester,
You may have better luck storing your saw on a shelf (either floor-standing or wall-mounted). If it's placed horizontally on a shelf, it shouldn't leak.

Dolmar Electric Chain Saw
I have only used the Dolmar 16" electric chainsaw for about 40 hours of cutting up downed trees for firewood. For this purpose, it is fast, powerful, and easy to use. It will cut through seasoned oak logs 12" or more in diameter with no problem. I purchased it looking for a reliable and long lasting product which does not use internal plastic gears, so far so good, but I haven't used it enough to determine it's reliability.

This saw is more expensive than it's competition, but I... more

"Great service from Chain Saws Direct. I purchased a spare saw chain with this saw. As it turned out, the recommended chain was the wrong length 58 links instead of 56 links. I called the company and they sent a replacement without any hassle, free of charge, and without the need to return the 58 link chain. They are a pleasure to do business with and I highly recommend them."
