Nice little chainsaw
I can fill a 4x5x2 trailer with 5 foot long logs to over full with one set of batteries. I bring the small trailer home with my Polaris RZR 800, and it's about all I would want to pull up out of the woods. I've also used the little saw to cut into lengths in the woodlot. I've not seen the competition saws. I bought it because I have lots of lxt batteries and Makita lxt tools. Won't cut as much as a light weight gas saw, but I'm pretty impressed.

36V CORDLESS CHAINSAW
Great little saw. Lots of power for size. 4 or 5 amphr batts preferred over the common 3ah. Great price when purchased. Should have option to come as kit with batts. Only issue with mine, which I purchased as NEW, was that it appeared to be USED. Came with new chain but bar was full of oil and wood chips. The body of the saw looked fine

Nice addition to my lxt line of tools
The anti-kickback plate or whatever it is seems to operate backwards from any saw I've ever seen. It shuts off saw when the plate is froward towards the blade. This causes the slightest bump to shut off the saw. It also makes is awkward and difficult to apply forward rotational pressure from the rear pivot point when sawing larger logs. I had to wire the plate to the handle in order to make the saw practical. Otherwise, an excellent LXT tool. It cuts quite a lot with the 3 Ah batteries, I'm thinking of getting the 5 Ah ones, but if you have a lot of 3's just swap them out. I can fill my small wagon with logs with one set of batteries and saw them up in my woodlot.

Nice little saw
This is a nice little chainsaw for small work around the house and perfect in the back of my side x side when 4 wheeling. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is it seems a little pricey and no batteries.

Are the chain saws brushless motors
George on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not a bad tool. Remember what it's suppose to cut. Thin to win. The blade seems to loosen up a lot. But with all that. I would still buy it again.
