Things I Love about This Electric Chainsaw
12 AMP Electric Motor
When compared to gas powered motors, this Black & Decker’s electric motor makes starting your chainsaw quick and easy. You do not need to first mix specific gas and oil ratios to add gas and you will not wear yourself out from repeatedly attempting to pull start those stubborn gas motors. Just plug it in, pull the trigger and this thing roars to life.
Electric motors are also quieter than their gas powered counterparts. Since they run on electricity and are not powered by gas, you will not reek of those noxious gas fumes and exhaust like you would if you were using the alternative.
Chain and Bar Features

The system is maintained by adding oil to the oil reservoir as needed. The clear view window is conveniently located on the oil reservoir and makes keeping the oil filled just a quick sight check.
Chain tensioning is made simpler by the tool-free tensioning system.
