Saw it right
I use this Saw everyday and have found that it passes every test. I love that it has a build in saw wrench to put the chain back on and for adjustments. Very powerful and quiet.
February 2, 2019
I am blown away with the performance of this chainsaw. This is a real chainsaw, not some piece of disposable junk.
I purchased this chainsaw kit to start my collection of 12.0 M18 batteries. I have a herd of 4.0's, and two of the 9.0 batteries, and you can absolutely tell a big difference in not just run time but performance and power as well. Mostly I use the 9.0 batteries between two 5" fuel angle grinders in my fab shop. They become much more of a tool with the bigger batteries. When I saw the announcements early 2018 about the 12.0 batteries and the new tools I knew I would be spending some more money. All I was waiting for was the right deal. I found this deal on the chainsaw kit and a 2nd free 12.0 battery and I jumped on it. No regrets.

My dad and uncle have both been loggers most of my life. I've seen my share of chainsaws working with them in the woods and around the house. This little Milwaukee saw keeps up with a stock 40cc Stihl gas saw. Yes, they can be hopped up and tuned to get near to 60cc performance, for a little while, but I'm talking about out of the box performance.

The chain is small pitch (requires a 5/32" file), round top Oregon chain on an Oregon bar. Round top chain doesn't cut as fast as square top but it's easier to deal with since it isn't as prone to kickback as square top chain and other more aggressive chain designs. I'll probably be sticking with round top chain on this saw.

A tank of bar and chain oil matches battery life on the 12.0 batteries pretty well. The oil flow was what it needed to be. Not a big gooey mess like some have described in their reviews. Chainsaws are nasty little tools, electric, battery, or gas powered. Or maybe my saw doesn't put out as much oil as theirs. Either way it's a non issue for me.

This saw has more torque than any little gas saw I've used. The trade off is chain speed. I believe the little gas saws run the chain faster. I have no way to measure this accurately and am just going by how the different saw designs cut. The Milwaukee saw just keeps chewing and doesn't seem to slow down as bad as a little gas saw. It just stays a more consistent chain speed from start to finish on a cut. That took me some getting used to and is not necessarily a good or bad thing. Just different than I am used to.

My constructive feedback on this saw would be to use a more typical pitch chain, the scrench is a pita to get out of the saw body, and the saw is a bit long with the battery in the middle of the saw between the handle and the bar. These aren't deal killers for me, just food for thought on 2nd generation saws. Also, a giant Milwaukee Fuel zippered bag should be included with the saw to keep up with the other chainsaw stuff together with the saw. Just sayin.

California frowns on marrying your chainsaw
This tool is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Made 6 cuts through a 15" trunk, and a slab cut through 36" of that same trunk before draining the 12ah battery. Next, made short work of my Christmas tree, as well as ripping the excess trunk into 16 4" coasters, without even scratching the surface of the battery pack. I plan on shedding my parents pepper tree infestation down after the holidays, and will keep score by the piles of their lifeless bodies. ?????? Can't wait

Christmas Tree Sales
We used the Chain Saw to set up our tree lot. We cut 120 stumps and other greens and still had 1/2 battery left. This saw replaces my gas saw. It's very quite and it runs all day.

This is surprisingly powerful in a light, compact and convenient form factor. Very quiet compared to a gas powered style and is obviously easier on your lungs and the environment. Great little chainsaw for smaller jobs on the M18 platform. Love it.

Always ready when I am
This is a great chainsaw for me to use around my property. No gasoline to go stale. Quiet and always ready to go when I am. Robust quality tool with a long lasting battery. I would definitely recommend this chainsaw to a friend.

Will the 9 amp hour or 5 amp hour batteries work in this tool? Also, can the battery in this tool be used in other Milwaukee Tools such as a drills, the reciprocating saw or hedge trimmer
Brian G on Oct 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use a larger amp hour battery with the tool. The battery will have to be in the M18 family. You can also use the M18 battery with other Milwaukee tools.
