Seems that Lowes.com isn't even accessible to look for more reviews. I just get redirected to the Canadian site. Strange too that the smaller model has a higher regular price than the larger model.

Any uses for a chainsaw for an urban homeowner? Or is it just a cottage/country thing

Bunk. If you are sober enough to operate any type of chainsaw responsibly, then there should be no difference in safety no matter the type. Power is relative, depending on your needs, but sure gas powered machines are obliviously better, but again it depends on your needs. I have both, and use my electric one more often than the gas, because like most weekend warrior homeowners, it is usually only a few logs that need cutting or some light limbing of trees on your property. Much easier to plug in an electric unit and use it immediately, then put it away immediately afterwards, than have to deal with a gas unit for most jobs. My gas unit comes out for serious work, but I'll always find uses for my crappy no name electric one that I bought at Zellers for like nothing at all 15 years ago that is still going strong.

You may like it but i gave my opinion.
I did logging for living.

Chain needs to be kept upto date with a file.

But if user think gas powered one are too cumbersome than buy a battery one.

I have a Stihl MS-261 but I also want something cheap to cut some small pieces of my Smoker without the toxic chain oil. Don't mind if it's corded for that specific need

I got the 16" and these electrics still need chain oil. Am I missing something here?

Agreed, much less power than a gas model but if you are just cutting down some small trees and bushes around the house, this is perfect.

You can use vegetable oil in a chainsaw, even Stihl is selling eco-friendly oil made with a vegetable oil base but $$$. I want a chainsaw dedicated to "food-safe" wood with vegetable oil
