Have owned a petrol chain saw for over 20 years but wanted something lightweight and instant start to evaluate,hence the ake 40-19s. Have just used it to fell and cut up, into wood burner sized 10 inch logs, a 50 foot tall weymouth pine with a trunk diameter of 27 inches. some may say that I was pushing the saw to its limits but it did the job without any difficulty whatsoever. Not once did it give the impression of being overloaded even when doing the primary main (felling) cuts. Initial assembly from packaging and following operation is simple and secure and the quality is, as one might expect from bosch, quite up to standard and I was especially impressed by the ease of chain tensioning. Despite the number of cuts that I had to make, because the blade/chain assembly is remarkably thin, the amount of sawdust produced was less than expected, yet the saw tackled the job without any fuss and the cutting rate into living wood was all that I hoped for. the only minor complaint I have is that it is very easy to activate the auto shut off device if, like self, one has big hands, you will find that the space between the handle and the guard is a little tight. In my opinion, the saw has paid for itself in its first operation as if I had commissioned a tree surgeon to deal with this fir tree,it would have been at least twice the price. Bravo bosch, well done.

I am unable to review this item as I have not used it yet, but by the look of things I am very happy about the build of the chainsaw, it is a Bosch product after all, you don't expect anything less from German manufactured goods. I am really looking forward to having a go! warmest regards Dot Mansley

I purchased this tool to undertake cut up branches that had been trimming from a tree at home. Max branch diameter = 20cm. When it worked, it was powerful & impressive. However, within 1 hour the plastic sds chain tensioning system had broken and rendered the tool unusable and unsafe. this is a common problem on this chainsaw as can be seen on the amazon reviews. This tool is poorly designed and a critical chain tensioning device is made of plastic. For that reason, i would steer clear of this tool. i returned the unit for a full refund
