This saw does more than I thought it would. One needs to be careful to not overburden it, however. If you ease it slowly into the cuts, you will be surprised at how much it can cut through. I overdid it once, and cracked or broke the metal motor mount, causing it to make a horrible noise. Greenworks has a very informative support website, with some very good owners posting on it. I ordered a few parts to fix my saw, plus got a new (Tool only) saw under warranty. The battery life on this tool is very good. But the bar oil quickly is gone, so one needs to keep an eye on that.
