Very handy
Great addition to my other Greenworks tools. Used this saw for the first time the other day. Took down 6-7 4"-6" trees, cut them to carrying size and still had battery life left. It went longer than me. No gas, no cord, no starting issues, all good as far as I can see.

Using a 2AH battery makes this a one hand climbing saw. The 4AH lets this saw cut for hours. All Greenworks saws cut great, this one is no exception, just smaller & lighter. Easy see oil tank with self oiler. Easy quick no tool chain tensioner.

Saw could be improved by speeding up chain or adding more teeth to limit bucking.
After buying a battery powered pole saw that I was extremely pleased with I bought this as a light weight replacement for a gasoline powered trim saw. I was really disappointed when out of the box it cut really slow and bucked like a banshee. I inspected the chain and realized it had twice as much distance between the cutting teeth as my other saws as well as some anti kickback limiters. I realized that is why it was cutting slow and bucking so bad that it was causing pain to my body. I ground down the kickback limiters and shortened the depth gauges on the teeth and that helped tremendously with bucking as well as speeding up the cutting action. I am going to replace the factory chain with a commercial chain with twice as many teeth and see if that further limits the bucking action and improves the cutting action. The saw really needs to spin the blade faster in my opinion as well.

Easy To Use
Amazingly useful tool for yard and garden work
Amazingly useful tool for light to medium trimming and cutting down brush, small trees, etc. Not having a gas engine or power cord to hassle with makes it far easier to use. It being a chain saw, albeit only 12", it does draw a lot of power so I recommend the 146WH battery.

Great tool for cutting small branches.
So far the chainsaw has worked just great. Have not run out of power well trimming bushes with branches up to 2 inches in diameter.

I ordered this saw and when it arrived the factory box does NOT have the words GMAX on it. There is a paper sticker on one end of the box that does have GMAX on it. Which is correct? Which saw do I have? I did not want to open the factory sealed box in the event I had to return the saw. I also bought GMAX Hedge trimmer (40 vt) and expected to use the charger and battery on the saw.

I have a 2.5ah 40v G-max Li-ion battery(model# 2901319) that came w/ a GreenWorks blower, will it work w/ the 40v GreenWorks 12" chainsaw? The blower works w/ both the 40v G-Max 2.5 & 2.0ah batteries.
