Bought this McCulloch electric chainsaw to replace an old Craftsman electric chain saw. (the Craftsman got ran over by a car). My application is semi-commercial; maintenance of trees on a bunch of city lots that I own.

Compared to my old Craftsman electric chain saw, the McCulloch seems to be wonderful. The first test was to cut a 16" diameter oak branch, cut thru it like hot butter. The "no tools needed" chain tensioner seems to be a good design (design seems to be similar to that used by other manufacturers).

Assuming this thing keeps cutting/running the same way in the long term, then we have a winner.

(note: all the electric chain saws come with cheap looking chains with cutting blades spaced very widely apart along the chain. To be ready for the bigger cutting jobs I sprung for a new $18 Oregon s-54 16" chain.)

Update FEB-2011: Just cutout a 4'(four foot) diameter 450# stump w/ this E-saw. It keeps doing a super job. In terms of a replacement chain, make sure to get the Oregon S-54 (S is style of cutter, 54 means 54 links). The MC literature suggests use of a S-55, but it is TOO Long and will soon wind up in the trash can.
Update JUL-2013: After cutting MANY trailer loads of trees, throwing saw around in the dirt, bouncing around in back of truck, and sitting around in a filthy storage building I managed to smoke the electric motor. Was cutting thru a 1 foot diameter tree when a white cloud began spewing from the motor. Managed to make my cut and fell tree.
Am placing an order this morning for a new electric saw, the very same MCC3516F!

This is the second electric McCilloch 16" chain saw that I have owned and it is even better and more powerful than the first. I still use a gas chain saw out in the woods on my property but I usually do just enough cutting with it to get the logs on a trailer so I can take them bach to my shed to cut them up and save the sawdust for on my garden and flower beds as mulch. This electric is lighter and more powerful than my gas saw and makes short work of even 14" well-seasoned oak and poppel logs with a minimum of effort. I highly recommend this sae for anyone who has an electric outlet close enough to their cutting station. It is a real pleasure to work with such an excellent piece of equipment McCulloch 16-Inch 3.5 HP Electric Chain Saw #MCC3516F

I bought this saw last summer when my old gas saw was on its last legs. I have cross cut and then sliced in half lengthwise about a cord of hardwood, up to about 12" in diameter for use in woodturning. As other reviewers have said, the saw has ample power and good safety features. It's got as much or more power as any of the 'homeowner' level gas saws I've used over the years and is much lighter. I was very pleased to find the chain sprocket is metal, unlike some other electric saws. I also have not had any problems with the saw heating up during use.
The only problems I have found are small--1. it's pretty hard to see how much bar oil is in the tank even though you're supposed to be able to easily see the level. 2. when cutting in rip fashion (which only woodturners are going to want to do) the cuttings clog up around the base of the bar fairly easily. I highly recommended this saw.

Edit: March 2012. Having used the saw for a while, I have one additional comment. The tool-less adjustment stopped working after a while. I discovered that the oily saw dust gets into the area of the attachment of the bar and gums things up. From time to time (more often than I would like), I have to take the cover off and clean everything out. Then it works fine again. This also contributes to the chain coming off the bar and being difficult to impossible to get back on.
Edit: May 2012. I've been unable to split 16" blocks lengthwise and discovered that the saw only has 14" of bar outside the housing. Stihl has 16" of usable bar on a 16" saw. For a little dishonesty, and the other small problems, I'm removing 1 star.

EDIT: March 2013: I burned up the motor.

The McCulloch3516F chainsaw puts an end to my problem of gas engines that don't start when I really need them to. I have been cutting out maple branches this summer from trees with verticillium wilt - branches up to 8 inches are no problem at all.

This saw has an impressive safety feature: a chain brake that stops the saw instantly as soon as the trigger is released or the safety guard is pushed forward. I mean instantly: there is a loud clunk as the brake engages and the chain stops dead. This takes some getting used to, as the brake engages if you wiggle your finger while running the chainsaw, causing the chain to start and stop. There is no concept of "revving" the chain. It also means there is no "idle" speed for the chain. It is on or off. And that is safe.

You can also consider it a safety feature that the chain has fewer cutting teeth than my gas powered saw chains. I don't know the relative operating RPMs - if they are about the same, this saw seems to cut a little slower, and fewer teeth would do that. This makes the saw less aggressive and less likely to pull out of your control. I like that. As I say, the cutting ability is well in excess of the 8" branches I've been dealing with.

The oil fill is conveniently located so that you don't have to tip the saw to fill it, although a small funnel is helpful.

Overall, I am very happy with this chainsaw.
