This the first chain saw i have ever used but i did some reading before trying it out so i was safe. The chain is fairly easy to install and the chain tensioner is good and easy to use. I was aware that bosch only supply a small sachet of chain oil really only enough for testing. So i ordered 5 litres with the saw. Tooled up gave a free chain with my purchse.After using it a couple of times a small puddle of oil has formed i am not sure if this is a leak or excess from the chain, i need to see if there is any oil adjustment as it seems to use quite a lot. I carried out the oil test over a sheet of paper and the line is quite heavy. I am very pleased with the product so far in testing it sliced through 8" logs with ease.

Super machine. I am used to using a petrol chainsaw and was a little worried about losing the power I was used to, I cut logs in the garden for my log burner. The neighbours however, were beginning to give me harsh looks and I put it down to the noise from the petrol machine. So, I thought I would give an electric one a go, WHAT A MACHINE!!. No more trips for petrol, no more mixing two stroke oil, I love the tool less chain tensioner, (five seconds instead of five minutes) and it's cheaper to run. It makes no more noise than a hammer drill. My son keeps me supplied with logs as he works in the industry. He delivered over a ton of logs last week, working alone I had it cut and stored in an hour and a half. The Oregon chain was like a hot knife through butter, I love it. The service, price and delivery from tooled up was fantastic, I will never use anyone else. No matter what your fears from an electric saw may be, this Bosh will dismiss them all.

Having never bought a chain saw before, I was unsure what to get - a friend warned me off cheap electric saws, but this is only cheap in price - I cannot believe how good this one is! I've two recently felled trees to saw into logs and this saw will cut through 12 inch branches with ease. It's easy to set up from out of the box, the chain is simple to tension, and the auto-lubrication system keeps the chain gliding through the logs. I was going to hire a petrol saw to do the job, but this was cheaper, more flexible, and I've now got a great tool for the longer term.

This is the electric chainsaw to buy, quality build fom a reliable manufacturer, with good safety features and at a sensible price.

Excellent chainsaw, it does exactly what it is designed to do. It is lightweight, but robust, it's easy to handle & maintain and comes with the quality and reliability of design that Bosch are renound for. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone considering an electric chainsaw.

Machine has power and easy to use, chain on guide has a tendency to frequently loosen however, the adjuster is very quick and straight foreward ,over all very good tool.

This is the second bosch electric chainsaw i have purchased. The fact that i bought bosch again says something. (i did research alternatives)
i find this easy to use and is well balanced. I have cut some thick trunks which it handles with no problem.
tensioning the chain is easy although i occasionally find it hard to release the lock control. A pair of pliers releases immediately. The oil reservoir is easily accessed.
overall, i would fully recommend this chainsaw for light to medium use.

Had good, trouble free use from this saw over the last couple of months.. Have had no problems at all. Keep the chain sharp, oiled up and adjusted is all you need to worry about. It'll keep pace with you. For ground work, with a ready power supply it is ideal for frequent stop start use, you do not have the problem of the of pull, pull petrol model. There is no worry about storing petrol, no smell or exhaust fume and it's quieter than the petrol model. If you intend to dangle about 50 feet up a tree, then perhaps this is not the saw for you. For keeping that log burner happy whatever the size of log preferred this is the saw for you. Would purchase the same again if necessary.

Cutting for a log burner? Don't bother to look any further, this will do all the cutting you are likely to need. Keep the blade sharp it'll cut anything even logs of 12-15 inch diameter no problem. Highly delighted with it done all the cutting i'll need for this winter.

I've used a petrol chainsaw in the past and i found this electric chainsaw much easier to operate. the trailing lead is no problem for ground-level work, but i wouldn't like to use it at high level. overall quality is good and no problems encountered so far. excellent service from tooled-up.Com
