    Ematic™ Lubrication System
    The Ematic™ guide bar when used with STIHL OILOMATIC® saw chain will provide proper lubrication and less oil consumption than conventional methods. The system works because two ramps, strategically placed in the guide bar rail, help contain the flow of oil and direct all lubrication to the sliding faces of the bar and chain links as well as the rivets and driver holes, which in turn can reduce bar oil consumption up to 50%.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth your consideration! I found this saw meets my needs well. I did not like breathing exhaust from my other saw so I spent a lot of money on this one but it was worth it to me. Less engine and vibration and no exhaust were the main benefits to me. It handles well the weight is just right for me and smooth cuts make it a good tool for pruning tasks.I found the AP 180 battery had enough life for the tasks I was doing. I did a lot of pruning on a tree and used only half the battery. Also I have been using it for gathering small loads of firewood, I can fill the bed of my small pickup, which is fantastic, (If you wanted to get a larger loads of firewood I think two batteries would be the minimum required.)I am pleased with the saw. I'm also pleased with the chain which seems to stay sharp for a long time and makes fine cuts. It did break on me once though, but I was yanking hard on the saw with the bar pinched firmly in a bad cut... which was not smart of me.I recommend the saw! January 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compatable with renewable energy. I have had this saw for only a couple of days, but must say I am pretty impressed with its performance, and thought I would contribute my impressions. I heat my off-grid home with wood, and burn about 2 cords a year. After a couple afternoons in the woods I am convinced I will easily be able to cut all the wood I will need with this saw. It is a nice light saw, weighing 11.5 lbs with everything, including an AP 180 battery. As others have mentioned, it is very quiet, and the lack of a gas engine should make it very hassle free to maintain. There is also a lot less vibration, and the fact that it is always on makes it really simple to set it aside and pick it right back up and start cutting. The batteries have a lot of power, but will drain down pretty fast if you simply stand and make repetitive cuts. I would say you could probably drain a battery in 20 minutes if you were just standing at a sawhorse cutting non-stop, but I could easily fell and limb and drag slash with this thing for an hour or two making only the occasional cut. I am using the AL 300 charger and I would say that you need 30 minutes to get 80% and about 45 to get a pack up to 100 from having around 25% remaining. (The included literature does not give much detail about how to prolong the life of your batteries, but my understanding of Lithium Ion batteries in general is that more frequent smaller chargings are better than really deep discharges). I obviously have not had the saw long enough to really say much about its drawbacks (other than its fairly high price), but one thing that I had not really thought much about was that it is not designed to be used in the rain. I look forward to putting some mileage on it this winter and getting some more experience with what I believe is a promising new piece of technology. October 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy this saw! I wanted something to cut some overgrown weeds and small branches that were too much for an ordinary hedge trimmer. This saw handle that effortlessly. Make no mistake, I felt confident that it has enough torque to handle even bigger jobs such as sawing down tree limbs. I especially love the brake controlf that instantly stops the blade as soon as you let go of the power switch.Of course being a Stihl it is pricey, but well worth the investment. October 1, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Chainsaw I have used this saw a few times and so far so good. It has enough power for my needs around the house,it's lightweight and I have yet to run the battery completely down. August 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy this saw and you will never go back to gasoline Never in a million years did I think I would ever give up my gas-powered chain saw for an electric one. Now, after only a couple of months of ownership - I will never go back to gas. I am telling all my friends to make the switch. I'm going around the neighborhood asking people if I can do some tree work in their yard, just for the heck of it - this thing is so easy and fun to use. Lightweight but PLENTY OF POWER, and soooo have to see it (and NOT hear it) to believe it. Now I'm looking to switch out all of my other lawn and garden equipment......!!! August 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's great! Been watching this for some time now, finally decided to get it and I'm very glad that I did! August 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by All work and no smoke Light weight and power on the pull without the hassel of gas and fumes. Handled all the sever winter damage in my yard without a problem going through hardwood and pine trees all day long. Battery ran and recharged like a dream. Just bought the hedge trimmer and looking to get the weed trimmer as well. Great tools! May 28, 2014
