Never go back to a petrol driven chainsaw for this size.
I purchase this over 3 years ago to replace a similar sized petrol chainsaw. I will never go back to a petrol model. It gives about the same cutting time as a petrol tank using the larger 9ah battery. It is great for pruning. Obviously it works better and cuts more wood with a sharp chain - more obvious than with a petrol machine.
Purchased in May 2017.
Pretty darn good
Advantages: High chain speed for a battery operated unit, with plenty of torque without the hassle of starting and stopping for a small cut, this thing is awesome. Battery lasts a while, and charger is quick too. It will handle most jobs around a property easily, I feel no need for another petrol chainsaw unless I want to cut something big. The chain cover does not collect as much dirt and grime as others, which is excellent. Less clearning and more cutting, and so very convenient.
Disadvantages: You need to carry a tool with you to tighten...and remove the chain tightening cover. From memory 18mm socket and a flat head screwdriver. Would've been nice to have a tool less unit for the odd touring expedition use in case the chain does dislodge etc It's also a little heavier than other battery powered offerings. Automatically turns off if you lay it down without engaging the guard, but I guess that's a safety feature.
