At last a quality light battery chain saw
I had already wasted heaps on 2 poor quality battery chain saws from China so was very wary before trying again. However, this saw exceeded all my expectations. It is light, powerful and very easy to use. The weight was a determining factor as I have a muscle wasting problem but this saw is not a problem. It is capable of sawing through significant diameter trees if one takes it slowly enough. I have been using it sporadically mostly for diameters up to about 3 inches but am confident it would handle much large sizes. I even used it to cut...some 3 x 2 softwood in a hurry to make props for a brick wall that was tilting and it did that with ease. It has never run out of charge during a session (but I have!) and it recharges rapidly using the charging unit provided. I am classing it as one of my most valuable aids and keep it handy. The only feature that I can't comment on yet is the battery life. My experience with the cheap Chinese makes is that the battery gives up within a year so I will see no doubt.
Questions & Answers
Don, how would it compare with Bunnings Izitzo chainsaw for around $130? Did you consider that or go with B&D due to brand and reviews? Gerry
No I didn't having already wastes a heap on a cheap Chinese saw, I decided to go with a brand I know. I have been extremely satisfied with it and it has done many hours work with me and still has the original battery which never runs out on the job. I count it as one of my most valuable tools especially as I have a muscle wasting disorder that means vey weak arms so its light weight is a bonus.
great answer Don..as i just tore my rotator cuff which is why I wanted a small battery chainsaw. Ok will get the B&D as it seems to get rave reviews on the net. Appreciate your time, G
