Makita UC4030A Electric Chain Saw Review:

This unit is capable of everything from weekend tree trimming to serious tree cutting. The sixteen customer reviews we found rated the Makita UC403A an average of 4.5 out of five stars. Most reviewers were impressed by the power, for an electric chainsaw. The main drawback to this unit is the cord. but the fact that there is no gas and oil to mix offset the cord issue with customers.

Rick said “I cut about a cord and a half of Lodge Pole Pine, Walnut, Oak and Ponderosa Pine. It is running great and runs extremely quiet for a chainsaw. It feels solid when you pick it up is light and very compact. It also comes with a hard plastic chain guard and is very easy to adjust the chain tension. I really appreciate the plastic clip that connects the cords together so you don’t have to tie them or have the saw unplug on you as you use it”

Considering the consumer ratings we found online, we have no problem recommending the Makita UC4030A Electric Chain Saw. If you require a powerful yet compact chainsaw and would rather not mix gas and oil, this saw should do the trick for you.
