After receiving the chainsaw, I was a little disappointed to find it would take 5 hours to charge the battery. I put it on the charger yesterday afternoon & this morning I took it outside for a \"test drive\". Oh my gosh - I am impressed!!! First, I cut up a large tree (about 14 inch diameter) that had come down over my fence. Then I worked on cutting saplings that were 2-6 inch in diameter. Also cut them into pieces that were small enough for me to drag. I'm a 65 yr old woman who is not in the best physical shape but I found this chainsaw very easy to use. With the weight of my old 14 inch gas chainsaw, I could only work for about 40-60 minutes before my arms & back were too tired to go any further. And, I had yet another gas engine to maintain. This morning, I worked for 1 hr 45 min with my new chainsaw. Sawing, dragging debris to the back, sawing, dragging...... I wore out before the battery did - it was starting to slow down a bit, but I just couldn't do any more. Now I'm thinking the 5 hr recharge won't be a problem because it's going to take a lot longer for my arms and back to recharge!!!!! HA!!! LOVE this chainsaw!
