I already had bar and chain oil on hand and the reservoir holds a decent amount so you don't have to refill it often. There's a window to allow you to see how much you have left before starting a new project. The short bar helps with control in tight situations and the saw is relatively light weight. It's a bit heavier than I expected though and much of the weight is in the back due to the battery. This causes the balance to be uneven so you have to work harder than you'd think to get good purchase on what you're cutting. As a result it takes longer to get through the wood. Sawing through the cedar trunk which was about 4" thick took a good 2 minutes where the Stihl would have finished it off in seconds. At first I thought there was something wrong with the chain, but then determined it was because I wasn't pressing down hard enough to make any headway. Even when I did that, it still took noticeably longer to get through each cut. Initially the bar just jumped around until I got a firmer grip and pushed hard. Depending on the location of what you're cutting, that may not be easy. In my case I was cutting rather high for me as the tree trunk was leaning on a 4' fence and I had to reach up and over to cut off the protruding end.
I was happy to complete the project and the saw did the job, but after using the Stihl, I did have the feeling I was cutting with a toy. Since the stop/start is so easy, though, and the saw was useful at getting off the many awkward branches safely, I will use it again for other such projects.
One other thing that bothered me a bit was that I bought both this and the hedge trimmer of the same brand that uses the same battery and charger. One of the batteries fit in the charger I unpacked first just fine and began taking a charge right away, but the other didn't. I unpacked the other charger into which it fit better, but the second charger was marked as being for a 21 volt battery rather than 18 volt, even though both batteries are marked 18 volt and look identical. I'd hoped to use just one charger and be able to interchange the batteries so I'd have the advantage of a second battery ready for longer projects with whichever tool I was using. It doesn't look like that's going to work out as one of the batteries doesn't snap into this unit tightly. Since I unpacked both tools together I don't know which battery and charger came with which, but both tools indicate those accessories are identical. Hummm. I'm assuming this is a quality control issue and doesn't give me much comfort about ordering an additional battery.
Bottom line, I can and will use the saw for trimming, but I'm not entirely satisfied and it will never replace a gas saw of quality for larger projects.
I thought this would be more powerful than it is. Seems to run pretty slowly and I think if the chain rotated faster it would be more aggressive and cut through things faster. That said, I still like it a lot.
What's in the box:
It comes assembled with a battery and battery charger. The battery needs to be charged up. You also have to add your own oil for lubricating the chain. It does not come with any oil.
After charging the battery I began to use the chain saw to cut 5" x 5" planks of hardwood. Oak I believe. It's give a nice clean cut. As the saw itself is pretty light, you do have to apply a lot of downward pressure so be prepared to have achy arms.
Overall I'm really pleased with it. I live in a very wooded area, and this makes light work of cutting up fallen tree limbs.
