Awesome chainsaw!!!
I have a Stihl MS 461 with a 25" bar. Don't get me wrong it is also an awesome chainsaw. However This Milwaukee 16" chainsaw is now my favorite as long as I'm using the M18 RedLithium High Output HD12.0 Battery Pack, this machine will outlast the amount of wood I want to cut in one time period and it will almost cut anything that my Stihl will cut without the burden of the heaviness and refueling of the Stihl. I will say the factory chain did seem to dull fairly quickly, but once I sharpened it myself it cuts like a dream, I have probably cut 10 times the amount of wood since I sharpened it and it is still cutting great.

Better than expected but on the pricey side.
I love this saw. I own 3 gas saws, 2 Stilh and 1 Husky. But my Milwaukee is my go to saw and it can do the same work as my 250 Stilh can.

Done with gas equipment
Cut what I needed to and dropped a few extra trees for fun. Could be a little lighter but it's no heavier than my old gas powered. Nice to not have to listen to it when the triggers not down. And no more pull cord.

Blade speed and power is great we use these saws in the air so it’s great not having to worry about it starting!

It makes the job much easier.
It makes it much easier to just plug the battery in and go to work.

Love this chainsaw
This saw cuts smoothly and is quiet enough to be able to talk to somebody within reason while using it. I’m a distributor of Milwaukee products and have heard so much positive feedback I decided to try it. Absolutely recommended to anybody. I also have used their pole saw, string trimmer and a hedge trimmers and they are all top notch. Using for personal use at home and can’t see why these shouldn’t last forever for maintenance purposes.

Are bars and chains commonly available?
Donald B on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Oregon Pt. # R56 for the chain, Oregon has not updated their website yet, but told me in a few weeks they should have the bar Part # available.

So does this special buy offer mean that you get two batteries?
Greg C on Nov 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the promotion is for an additional battery.
Does it still require bar oil like a traditional gas chain saw?
Charles H on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it still requires bar oil and fills like a traditional gas saw. I love this saw. Nice to set it down and be completely quiet while I move logs and branches around.
Is the ChainSaw veritable speed?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No mine is not. I will tell you this though, it is a man. I would not tale anything for mine. To have that much power and be so quiet is amazing. But it is just like everything else I have made by Milwaukee, tough as nails.
I read in one of the reviews a owner replaced the bar with a Stihl 16” bar. I have a gas powered stihl saw with extra bar, will that work on this saw?
Jrbv00 on Nov 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You should be able to use it.. but to make sure just contact Milwaukee customer service.. they are very nice and extremely helpful.. might even send you a new bar
Is it quiet enough to use on a Sunday morning without disturbing nearby neighbors?
A shopper on Nov 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is not anywhere as noisy as a gas powered chainsaw. Your lazy neighbors will not be disturbed.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
