I was pleasantly surprised that this is as easy to use as the reviews and videos say! I am 64 and not as agile or strong as I used to be. But this takes very little effort to use. Because it works like scissors, and because you must use 2 hands, the weight is distributed well and it is not at all awkward to manipulate. It's also not overly noisy.
I was disappointed to find that oil does not come with it. However, upon reading a government article on chain saw oils, I found that canola oil is perfect and I had some in my kitchen cabinet! The squeeze bottle that comes with the lopper is too hard to squeeze, but I let the oil drip from it into the hole on the lopper and then pushed the squeeze bottle nozzle into the hole to help the oil go down wherever it goes.
It is almost impossible to hurt yourself with the chain saw part of this contraption. You would have to intentionally stick a body part between the scissor-like guards to saw something off or cut yourself. That being said, I read the 12 page manual, and I think it is very important to read it. Follow the instructions! They give you sound advice. I read about many dangers of which I had been previously unaware. It is easy to end up having a problem using the lopper, so be proactive and prepare yourself with the proper knowledge so as to avoid the problems common to chain saw use.
At one point, I held the lopper upside down to cut a limb and it got stuck. I pulled the lopper out from the partially cut limb and the chain came off. So I got to follow the instructions to re-seat the chain. It was very hard to get the 2 nuts started turning (turn counter clockwise to loosen) but I gave a good yank on the included wrench and they moved. It was actually fairly easy to replace the chain. I was pleased and surprised and rather proud of myself to accomplish it, and without mishap.
After every cut you make, shake the jaws out while running the chain in order to let any wood chips or debris fall out. When all done cutting, unplug the lopper and close your eyes and blow out any remaining debris. If necessary, remove the 2 nuts and the plastic piece they hold in order to completely clear out debris.
Lastly, if you get tired, STOP! This is not a tool to use when you are even a bit weary. You don't need to misjudge and bring down a limb on your head, trip over something, or saw the electric cord.
Oh - last, last thing: My palms got very sore from holding the lopper handles and from the vibrations. Of course, I didn't notice this was happening until after I was all done. I may invest in a pair of those gloves that protect against vibration. Or, next time, maybe I just won't do so much at one time, LOL!
I must mention that the oiler mechanism is worse than a joke. Not even the chief engineer of Black and Decker could ever make it work. They give you a little plastic bottle, like shampoo would come in at a hotel. On top of this is a little pop-out nozzle. You are supposed to forcefully push the nozzle into a hole in the side of the saw and squeeze it to inject oil. The problem is that the nozzle retracts and closes when you apply pressure to it. Even if it did work, it would be annoying to stop and monkey around with a little bottle in a little hole every few cuts. I just use an oil can and manually oil the chain every couple of minutes.
For over 5 years, I've used this to cut branches. I purchased a spare chain, but haven't had to use it.
I like it because it holds the branch steady while it's cutting. If you use a chain saw, unless someone else is holding the other end, the branch will be jumping back and forth.
How big of a branch can it handle? Look at the attached photo. The tree in my front lawn died and I had to trim it up. The Alligator is wide enough to cut this stump! It only took about 5 minute to cut the branches down to 2 foot lengths for disposal.
I noticed the price has been reduced to $67. Guys. Buy this. It's "dirt cheap". You'll have no regrets.

I have many trees and shrubs. The gator is awesome to use in those awkward positions you can find yourself in when cleaning up the yard. The safety of using it is what I like as well as the weight of it. I have cut the cord, hence the second one. I completely burned it out, I was cutting wood for fire a few years ago and still have wood to burn. I thought I could do with out the last couple years and nah, I need another one...I like the Gator!
Just like many on-line reviews state, this saw is well build, as a powerful electric motor, easy and safe to use. Unlike a regular chainsaw, which requires that you safely position the branch prior to the cut, you only need to open the jaws and cut away immediately.
