That review says that an 8" tree overpowered the Greenworks saw. That means it's a toy in my book. The Echo is rated at 112 cuts on 6" logs. An 8" tree is no problem.
Yeah, I “saw” this little cutter as more of a “get some firewood saw” to use for slicing up smaller branches. I don’t go for a campfire with huge chunks of wood in it. I prefer sitting nearby, feeding a smaller fire with 2” to 4” thick branches....they usually burn cleaner, faster and hotter and produce less smoke, while also making a fire that’s much easier to put completely out (smaller, fewer coals) when it’s time to turn in.
So this saw would only be a firewood saw for someone with not a lot of gear storage room looking, but it’d be worthless if your trail was locked by a fallen tree.
