Nice chainsaw... Awful chain's

" Brought this chainsaw after my petrol Mcculoch gave up the ghost after a decade of use, i have never owned a electric motor chainsaw before so was unsure what to expect.
Set up was very easy (10 minutes) and it looked the buisness, light weight and easy to handle and carry.
First impressions was that it had enough power, let the saw do the work and didnt force it through the tree too fast, chain stayed on, it stretched and i re tightened after a few mintes, standard for new chains and noticed just how little oil it kicked out compared to my petrol chainsaw.
Then after approx 10 minutes noticed how the cutting ability had reduced greatly, did the built in sharpening stage that helped but not a lot.
I thought maybe for a budget chainsaw they gave you a cheap chain to get you going only, i ordered a new Oregon chain, they are not a cheap chain by any standard but expected this one to last longer, how wrong i was, approx 10 minutes of cutting time and this one was also blunt, used the built in sharpening gadget again but it did not make a lot of difference.
Oregon are obviously riding the gimmick of the built in sharpening gadget but it certainly does not live up to expectations, a cheap chain will only get you so far, even with sharpening.
A real shame, a nice chainsaw body with power to carry out light to medium jobs but very cheap and nasty chains indeed,
I have used cheap chains before and they have lasted for 4-5 trees, this one was a top range priced chain that lasted for less than one tree.
Oregon have adapted their chains for this saw to fit in with the sharpening gimmick, if the adaptation has effected the durability of the chains or if they are using cheap metal i am unsure, but the recommended chains to fit this saw are certainly not worth the price tag.
I will look at purchasing a chain to fit this saw from elsewhere and probably from a different manufacturer, as 10 minutes of effective cutting time is not cost effective in any ones book.
Nice chainsaw but do not buy the stock chain to fit this saw, it would be cheaper to get proffesionals in than the amount of chains you will use. "

Had a MacAllister 2000 which even with a new chain bounced off some hardwood. Upgraded to the Oregon which munched its way through spitting out great big sawdust shavings instead of dust. A great improvement over the MacAllister, more sturdily built, different build features and well worth the extra money.
Does the job

I initially bought this to cut down a cherry tree. I researched various models & various reviews elsewhere were very favourable. I was very pleased at how it took the cherry tree with some gusto. I’ve since used it to cut logs for my chiminea & it does it with ease. The quality is good & the reputation of the Oregon chains themselves make it a good purchase. It’s easy to set up & use but you will need some oil as it comes without any.
Overall very pleased & I recommend this chainsaw.
