How it works

The Seesii six-inch mini chainsaw packs a powerful punch with its pure copper motor, high-efficiency lithium battery and auto-lubrication system. The chainsaw has two 21V rechargeable batteries, equaling 42V of total power and a run time of 80-100 minutes.

While the chainsaw is compact in build, it can cut six inches in diameter in just four seconds, making it handy for backyard projects, camping and pruning. Plus, at a quarter of the size of regular petrol chainsaws, it's easy to use and allows for safe and accurate cutting.

To prevent potential accidents, the chainsaw's safety lock and trigger must be pressed simultaneously to start. It also has an auto-lubrication system that delivers a steady supply of oil for smooth and efficient use.

The reviews are in

With an "Amazon's Choice" title and a 4.5-star average rating in its corner, the Seesii mini chainsaw has won over reviewers with its lightweight build and easy-to-use design.

According to one fan, it's the "greatest little tool for home use." The chainsaw is "easy to use" and keeps shrubs and trees "maintained and trimmed up," they write. Adding, the size of trees it can take down is "surprising."

Another shopper writes that it's the "best battery-powered chain saw." It's "big enough for skids" yet "small enough to maneuver in bushes." If you use oil thinner, the chainsaw will become a "useful tool for you for many years," they promise.

A third reviewer "cannot believe how well" the chainsaw works for the price. They say it cuts branches "in seconds," has a "good battery life," and can be used with just one hand.

While the mini chainsaw has earned over 800 five-star reviews, some users caution that its chain easily falls off and note the battery doesn't last as long as stated.

It's "not bad" but "not super," according to one shopper.

Do you need it?

With spring and summer gardening on the horizon, Amazon reviewers recommend adding this six-inch mini chainsaw to your outdoor tools arsenal. Dubbed the "greatest little tool for home use," the mini chainsaw is loved for its lightweight build and easy-to-use design. However, some note the chain can be finicky and say its battery doesn't last as long as stated — something to keep in mind when adding to your cart.
