I would have no trouble recommending this product. A great buy at a good price.
If it doesn't improve soon it will be going back.
The 2 year warranty says a lot about a company that believes in their products.
The rechargeable battery that makes this cordless, is a good idea and all black and decker batteries are interchangeable, another good idea.
He didn't find this heavy and also found it easy to use. He cut branches down that was about 6inches thick, but mainly smaller ones and was well pleased with the results.
He liked the look and feel of this saw and how it handled too.
The synopsis tells you all about the specs so will not repeat it here.
A superb product for an awesome price.
Quite comprehensive instructions, but fiddled quite a while to get the chain tension correct. (In retrospect its similar to a bike chain) You do require to purchase some chainsaw oil with the product and luckily I noticed that someone else pointed this out. The battery takes a few hours to charge - however I found that the chainsaw operated for approximately 1 hour plus with no noticeable 'drop off' of power. A gardening friend also female helped and was also of the opinion that this was really easy to use and far easier than her handsaw. Would certainly recommend for ease of use and results.
Some people have mentioned battery life - if you are realistic it is probably fine - you want to do quite a bit of trimming, cutting - no problem - but if you have got 2 tons of wood to cut in one go - then it probably is not what you are looking for! It comes with a single battery and the charger is one of the standard (fairly dumb) 8 hour charger instead of one of the fast 1-2 hour chargers - but for the price I suppose that is to be expected.
However, here's a solution I found - if you may need a drill consider the 'Black & Decker HP188F4BK 18V Hammer Drill' - it comes with 2 x 18v batteries and the faster / smart charger. The batteries are interchangeable so that way you would have a total of 3 batteries (3 times the cutting time!) and a smart charger (plus the drill of course which is good as well). For the current selling price it's a great option as two of the 18v batteries on their own are about the same price as the drill, batteries and charger package - so you effectively get the drill and smart charger for free.
Overall would certainly recommend.
This is it!
If anything, the chain oiling mechanism is not the best, difficult to squirt, and then somethins while it's stored it leaks.
Another drawback is the battery takes at least 8 hrs to charge and lasts only about 20 mins at full chat (and I couldn't buy the fast battery charger separately in the UK).
But the chainsaw cuts everything I want it to, even as wide as the length of the blade itself (although it takes its toll on battery life)

I was very pleased with the saw at first, as it is good when just off the charger. However, the batteries don't hold their charge at all!!Read more
I followed the tip and bought the drill with the two batteries and fast charger, and I really can't tell you how...Read more
