Makita Cordless Chain Saw, Model# UC120DWD
Just don't expect too much...from a little saw
I purchased this saw because of it's size and weight. I wanted something I could easily carry up into various trees for routine trimming. This is a quality product, but... it simply does not have the rpm/ chain inertia to make the clean cuts I have come to expect from a larger saw. With practice, it will do the job - just don't expect too much from a little saw. In an unexpected turn of events, my wife informed me that this was "her saw." She finds it perfect for her yard work needs and it's ease of operation is a huge plus.

Absolutely gotta have at my house
About 10 years I lost my ability to walk. But here "on the farm" trees, limbs, heavy stemmed bushes still, die, fall in bad places, or just get too big. So I had to find something to use besides my old chain saw-- I was no longer able to start it, and if I could I could not manage the weight and length from the back of my scooter, nor could my wife manage it either.
Solution a reliable brand saw was needed-- light weight, no problem with the strength or aggravation of starting it, and one that I could manage on the back of my scooter, or my wife could manage also.
The Makita Cordless Chain Saw, Model# UC120DWD met every one of those criteria. It is faithful, never a problem with getting it going, and handles the majority of chores that require a chain saw.
Of course if a very large tree comes down, I have to get someone to help with the trunk, but the top branches I or my wife can go at with no problems. Honestly I have found it will take on larger cutting jobs than the saw is advertised to do.
This saw is a must have, even if you don't have to deal with the special problems I have to-- it is a reliable and extremely handy tool to have on hand when the job really doesn't have to be done by a heavy, often aggravating and loud gas chain saw.

Makita Cordless Chain Saw
I have had my Makita Cordless Chain Saw for a year and I can say it is a hard worker and well worth every penny. Our house is 100 percent wood heated and the Makita does 85 percent of the fire wood cutting plus the pruning chores mantaining 40 acres of trees. It cuts dried hard wood with ease. It is light and easy to carry. Their are only two problems with the Makita. One is it is hard for one person alone to remove the battery, and everyone wants to use it and not the other saws.

Cordless Chain Saw
This cordless chain saw is extremely effective. I have used it extensively to cut firewood. It's lightweight, so I don't tire holding it. I've also carried it in the trunk of my car and been able to stop on the side of the road and cut and collect firewood instantly.
