The details

UMISKAM's mini chainsaw is designed with a built-in brushless motor, cutting down on heating and cooling times, reducing energy consumption, and increasing power output.

Small but mighty, the six-inch chainsaw has a motor speed of up to 6m/s and an output power of 600w, which can cut through a 15cm log in just 10 seconds.

The mini cordless chainsaw comes with two 10,000 mAh batteries and two chains. It has a safety lock to prevent injury, a non-slip handle, and weights just 1.54 pounds.

'Cuts like a hot knife through butter'

UMISKAM's mini chainsaw has earned nearly 300 five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers, with fans of the tool calling it the "perfect little saw."

According to one reviewer, the device is "easy to use, lightweight," and "cuts like a hot knife through butter."

"[I] finally got rid of some overgrowth and trimmed the trees in the garden." they write. It's "fantastic!"

It's "awesome" for grooming hedges and trimming branches, echoes another.

The 'perfect little saw'

The saw has "blown us all away," lauds a third reviewer. It's the "perfect little saw" for dealing with fallen trees, branches, and other yard work. It's "great" because it's "so light," and there's "no oil and gas leaking all over the place."

Despite its 4.3-star rating, some shoppers say that while it's a "handy tool," the battery needs frequent charging, which can slow you down.

The verdict

Whether you're gearing up for fall camping or want to tackle a backyard project or two before the snow falls, Amazon shoppers recommend checking out UMISKAM's mini chainsaw for outdoor projects. Reviewers call it the "perfect little saw" and say it "cuts like a hot knife through butter." However, some users note its battery needs frequent recharging, something to keep in mind when heading to checkout.
