Quick to use, plenty of power.

Highly recommend this product.
Quiet, light and every bit as powerful as my equivalent gas model. Cut for 2 hours with same battery.

This chain is a good value and in its' right time. Enough power to cut down 12" to 14" trees and to buck them up. Very low noise and no gas fumes to inhale, no yanking of starter cord. Good balance and easy to use. Use 12A Bat.

Hardworking chain saw
Lost a lot of trees this winter. Limbed them up and cut up the fire wood with it. Biggest tree was probably 22" at the base. Love how easy it is to use with the chipper. Never have to crank it. Just grab, cut, and keep chipping. Battery lasts a long time. Have alot of m12 and m18 stuff and it lasts.

Stihl who?
This chainsaw runs quick, smooth and quiet! Bar Oiler works great keeping the chain sharp for many uses. Battery life is surprisingly long, which is no surprise if you’ve ever owned anything Milwaukee in the last two decades. Keep up the good work. I have to say this company has done an amazing job at keeping up on where the market is going and staying innovative to not get passed by like a Kodak company...

this chainsaw has a lot of power for an 18 volt. I was not expecting much for an 18 volt chainsaw. I have used other chainsaws with higher voltage that do not perform as much as this. I like that it has two screws to hold the chain tight. Some chainsaws only have one screw and the chain is constantly coming loose. Even when using the 12 amp hour battery this is fairly light weight.

Does it still require bar oil like a traditional gas chain saw?
Charles H on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it still requires bar oil and fills like a traditional gas saw. I love this saw. Nice to set it down and be completely quiet while I move logs and branches around.
Is the ChainSaw veritable speed?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No mine is not. I will tell you this though, it is a man. I would not tale anything for mine. To have that much power and be so quiet is amazing. But it is just like everything else I have made by Milwaukee, tough as nails.
I read in one of the reviews a owner replaced the bar with a Stihl 16” bar. I have a gas powered stihl saw with extra bar, will that work on this saw?
Jrbv00 on Nov 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You should be able to use it.. but to make sure just contact Milwaukee customer service.. they are very nice and extremely helpful.. might even send you a new bar
Is it quiet enough to use on a Sunday morning without disturbing nearby neighbors?
A shopper on Nov 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is not anywhere as noisy as a gas powered chainsaw. Your lazy neighbors will not be disturbed.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
