I purchased cordless chain saw to cut branches on my trees and creeping fig vines that are too big for loppers, and it works great! I am a male in my late 60's, and it is not too heavy to operate for me. I read the reviews before purchasing, and saw the comments about adding oil being a nuisance; but I just used a little canola oil that I had in the kitchen, and it works great. The little plastic bottle has a little screw cap that opens the top to dispense oil, then screws back down to close when finished adding oil to the little reservoir. I would definitely recommend this tool because it is easy to use, has great safety features, and the cost was very reasonable. If I had not stumbled on this saw, I would have spent much more on a chain saw that would probably have been too heavy and dangerous for me to use.
