Customer reviewsLightweight. Plenty of power. No on-board Oiler
Lightweight. Be sure to stop after a couple of cuts and tighten the chain Loosen the two black cap screws on the side, then use the included tool to rotate the screw on the front face of the case clockwise until there is a tiny bit of chain slack. I got the chain stuck a couple of times, probably because of the new chain stretching and having slop which allowed it to get caught in the slot being cut in the limb. Overall this seems like a very good addition to my tool bin. The battery power is plenty adequate. Not having a cord to drag around or a temperamental gasoline chain saw is just awesome. This should be perfect for Joe Homeowner. Just don t expect it to be a commercial duty tool. Note that the chain must be oiled manually by use of a squirt bottle or other method. There is no oil reservoir on the saw. Seems a bit odd, but works OK. Probably saves several dollars in original manufacturing cost and does simplify the saw quite a bit.
