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

It's early days yet but so far this saw is far preferable to the husqvarna petrol saw of the same size which i've used for several years. power is easily equivalent, it's much lighter, not in the least bit temperamental, and altogether much easier to use. one small awkwardness is that the chain doesn't freewheel for sharpening.

The machine performs well for its intended use. Most of the item is plastic which whilst clearly suitable creates the impression of filmsy. Given this i.E. Plastic body a bit over priced, possibly paying for the name. to early to give a reliability rating.
