Saw it right
I use this Saw everyday and have found that it passes every test. I love that it has a build in saw wrench to put the chain back on and for adjustments. Very powerful and quiet.

They need to make a case! ASAP
This is a great saw however it is longer than a gas saw and does NOT fit into any gas cases. I had to wrap this saw up in a garbage bag to protect it from the weather. This is a huge miss by the team at Milwaukee for an item that is ALWAYS available with any other tool they sell. Get on this people.

I am blown away with the performance of this chainsaw. This is a real chainsaw, not some piece of disposable junk.
I purchased this chainsaw kit to start my collection of 12.0 M18 batteries. I have a herd of 4.0's, and two of the 9.0 batteries, and you can absolutely tell a big difference in not just run time but performance and power as well. Mostly I use the 9.0 batteries between two 5" fuel angle grinders in my fab shop. They become much more of a tool with the bigger batteries. When I saw the announcements early 2018 about the 12.0 batteries and the new tools I knew I would be spending some more money. All I was waiting for was the right deal. I found this deal on the chainsaw kit and a 2nd free 12.0 battery and I jumped on it. No regrets.

My dad and uncle have both been loggers most of my life. I've seen my share of chainsaws working with them in the woods and around the house. This little Milwaukee saw keeps up with a stock 40cc Stihl gas saw. Yes, they can be hopped up and tuned to get near to 60cc performance, for a little while, but I'm talking about out of the box performance.

The chain is small pitch (requires a 5/32" file), round top Oregon chain on an Oregon bar. Round top chain doesn't cut as fast as square top but it's easier to deal with since it isn't as prone to kickback as square top chain and other more aggressive chain designs. I'll probably be sticking with round top chain on this saw.

A tank of bar and chain oil matches battery life on the 12.0 batteries pretty well. The oil flow was what it needed to be. Not a big gooey mess like some have described in their reviews. Chainsaws are nasty little tools, electric, battery, or gas powered. Or maybe my saw doesn't put out as much oil as theirs. Either way it's a non issue for me.

This saw has more torque than any little gas saw I've used. The trade off is chain speed. I believe the little gas saws run the chain faster. I have no way to measure this accurately and am just going by how the different saw designs cut. The Milwaukee saw just keeps chewing and doesn't seem to slow down as bad as a little gas saw. It just stays a more consistent chain speed from start to finish on a cut. That took me some getting used to and is not necessarily a good or bad thing. Just different than I am used to.

My constructive feedback on this saw would be to use a more typical pitch chain, the scrench is a pita to get out of the saw body, and the saw is a bit long with the battery in the middle of the saw between the handle and the bar. These aren't deal killers for me, just food for thought on 2nd generation saws. Also, a giant Milwaukee Fuel zippered bag should be included with the saw to keep up with the other chainsaw stuff together with the saw. Just sayin.

Quiet, clean and aggressive!
I finally put this thing to real task today. I'm thoroughly impressed! I had a good amount of faith in it but I had no idea how awesome it would be! It'll run on 5.0 batteries if need be. However, for big jobs I suggest buying a second 12.o Ah battery. Otherwise, this thing is great!

An amazing saw!!
We live on 120 forested acres and my 70 year old wife is a certified "Master Woodland Manager". Advancing age has made it increasingly difficult for her to start a conventional gasoline chainsaw. I bought her the new 16" Milwaukee for Christmas and she is tickled pink with it. Milwaukee advertises this saw as equal in performance to a gasoline saw. This is absolutely true! The power is great and battery life is surprisingly good. The battery life is in harmony with the capacity of the bar oil tank. Being able to just "pull the trigger" and start sawing is really great. The saw seems to be very robust and well made. No gas / oil to mix, no fumes, no vibration and very little noise. Would buy this again in a heartbeat.

Love the saw for cross cutting
I am a woodturner and I find that when I cut the pith out of the log it chokes very quickly, I would recommend that the cover has more room to get rid of my shavings when I cut with the grain. I will be modifying the cover.

Does it have a storage case available?
A shopper on Jul 5, 2018
Are bars and chains commonly available?
Donald B on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Oregon Pt. # R56 for the chain, Oregon has not updated their website yet, but told me in a few weeks they should have the bar Part # available.
can you use M18 Redlithium XC 5.0 Battery's as a back up for this saw?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes by all means ! - I have the 5, 9 & 12 Ah batteries. They all work great in the chainsaw. Love these new high tech batteries...
where can we get an extra chain?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe Oregon makes the bar. Bomgaars has a good Oregon selection with chains, if you don't have a Bomgaars then you could try Ace. Typically I've not seen as good of a selection for Oregon products for Ace though.
How much does it weigh?
Tom R on Jul 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This Weighs 13.9 lbs.
So does this special buy offer mean that you get two batteries?
Greg C on Nov 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the promotion is for an additional battery.
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.
