Everything I Need
I've been looking at getting a saw as a homeowner. To cut up a downed tree, trim branches and cut a truckload of wood now and again for campfires and camping. I've used all sorts of chainsaws over the years, but this is my first electric saw outside of an old corded one we used when I used to build log homes.

I wasn't keen on dealing with maintenance and mixing gas and all that anymore, since I use it rather infrequently and my old saws always seemed like I was maintaining as much as or... more

Powerful!
This chainsaw has some awesome aspects, and one huge downfall. The blade is super sharp out of the box, the balance is excellent, cleaning is very easy, dismantling to throw in a backpack is effortless, overall is an excellent tool. Now the bad news regarding Dewalts claimed 100 cuts on 6x6 with one 6Ah battery.

The first two uses with this saw was disappointing, with the first resulting in 15 cuts on 10-14" downed trees. The second resulted in 18 cuts on the same type of wood, same... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Quiet, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Short Battery Life

Works As Expected. I Hope. I Haven't Tried It Yet.
I really like the idea of owning a chainsaw I don't have to put gasoline in, or yank on the starter cord countless times, and has a battery I can also use in my string trimmer if I need to. However, since I haven't even pushed the "go" button on it yet to see if it works, I can't really say much about the operational qualities, or the durability. I charged the battery, and that's about it so far. No limb has cried out to me to trim... yet. But I'm sure it will be fine. All the reviews... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive

Another Great Dewalt Product
This is a five-star product. I bought it for my motor-home but use it on my property to take down some trees. I'm very impressed - you might want to go ahead and buy it. You wont be disappointed.

Great Chainsaw
This is a phenomenal chainsaw. You will forget that it is battery powered except when you go to start it - insert battery, pull trigger. It is that easy. It is every bit as powerful as a gas operated chainsaw.

Great Little Saw
Recently needed to purchase a new saw, and being on a quest to go green, I thought I'd give a cordless saw a try as I can charge with solar panels. I was impressed with the power of this saw, but greatly disappointed with the durability. Was not built for anything beyond the occasional home owner light use. Hopefully someone can build a more durable saw soon, as I really like the idea.
