Works amazingly well!
I have used my chainsaw on many different occasions, owning it for about a year now. It has never failed to impress me. The battery life is so much longer than you would expect. Only once or twice have I managed to outlast the charge. :) I've cut up downed trees following a tornador and done general limb/branch cleanup around my property. It exceeds my expectations every time I use it. It is easy to use and any needed maintenance is simple. I love that I can share the batteries among the Greenworks pole saw, trimmer and hedge clipper that I also purchased. What a great product!

Great for trail work
I have been using the Stihl 180 gas saw but this saw does everything the Stihl does with a lot less hassle. You just set it down on it's flat bottom when you need to move brush around. It does not "die" while waiting for you to move brush, starts right up when you are ready to go again. Ultra quiet. Chain seems to turn slower than gas saw but eats wood faster. It won't cut a "cord of wood on a battery", or even two batteries (I got two). But I can cut about 60-70 cuts of 6-10 inch Oak. Madrone, Alder, Fir mix on a charge. Easy to pack on the trail. I use this plus the Greenworks 14" "weed eater" modified (turned down on a lathe) to use a 7.5 " carbide Skil Saw blade, running the Ryobi weed eater head (fits right on the Greenworks motor head) to clear trail.

My New lithium chain saw
I love the tool, it is just a little heavy but it is better that the long cords it is just a little heavy and I get tired after a while. It seems to be very well made. I don't think that the batteries are compatible with my hedge cutter.

Light weight and the battery is long lasting. Perfect for job site . Easy to use without gas operated saw or electric cords. I believe it will be worth the money.

Awesome lil machine!
If you are in doubt or stubborn to move on from 2 cycle gas to electric chainsaws, I can assure you, they're awesome. I've had my 40volt 16" blade Greenworks for 2 seasons now and have asked more from it that it was designed for. i have 2 batteries that typically last 45min-1hr ea.. They're quite, don't need premixed gas or sparkplugs, just bar/chain oil and a charge, plenty powerful!!! Highly recommend.......

I bought this early in the spring and I am completely satisfied. I have used it to cut down 12 inch willows and even took it to the stumps. I have used this saw enough times to have to sharpen the chain twice and I love it! The chain adjuster is toolless. Big plus. Sooooo quiet and no gas and oil. No more pulling and jerking. I bought an extra battery and between the two batteries it lasts more than long enough for me. The really cool thing is when you are cutting the fallen tree and you have to stop to move branches around just let off the trigger and restart by pulling trigger. NO MORE PULLING!!!!!

This was a very useful purchase for so many reasons. It has proved to be an extremely useful and quality tool so far . I expect that too continue even after years of being worked hard and maintained accordingly.

Love mine.
I have had this a year and it has come in real handy taking down some trees and cutting them up. I have used it on up to 10 inch trees.
