Initial Impressions

The saw is well finished, and appears to be well made.  It came packed in a box, along with a 2Ah battery, rapid charger, guide bar, and chain. The manuals that came with it are fairly brief, but clear to read.

Like many other saws in this product category, the saw features a tool-less chain tensioner, although, this one is a bit different, with a 'shaft drive' design (see next post). I like the rubberized handles.  Sound level was about the same as a large, electric drill. No noticeable vibration.

The saw has a lot of power: It cut through everything I asked it to, ranging from 2", mixed, dry hardwoods, up to 12" freshly cut ash, in a pile set aside for this evaluation. I tried to intentionally bog it down, but had to lean on it hard to get it to slow down even a little bit - even gas saws would do this.

All the wood in the attached photos were cut with about 1/2 of the 2.0Ah battery (based on LED indicators)
