    Thought you guys might enjoy this video, it’s a green line but looks pretty well made inside.

    I think I might prefer something like this over a 12v recip saw, less vibration and more precise cut. The blade cost is insane though, $50 each!

    I just watched it on YT and came here to share it. I think this ought to come over to this side of the pond for sale.

    I don't do a fast job. I don't do a slow job. I do a half fast job.

    Hopefully the blade will be cheaper. I think it’s rated for 100m of softwood, that’s 60 cents a meter at current Amazon UK price.

    Can’t really think why I’d want one.

    Thank you for the video. I have one. The only problem is the green line 12V battery has a different case than the blue line available in NA. The green line battery works in the blue line tools but the blue line battery will not fit the green line tools.

    Cool tool. Not sure what I would use it for though.

    That’s interesting, so if one fits in the other but not the other way around, I wonder if it was intentional and modifying is as simple as cutting of a tab or such.

    Seems the mini chainsaw fits somewhere between a circular saw, jigsaw, recip and OMT. Bosch could make a proper pro version of that with more blades like it was a jigsaw and it’d be pretty good as a do it all kind of a thing like an OMT.

    Nope. Not for me either. I can’t see why anyone with literally any other options would buy one either…

    I just can’t think what useful task it would do well. For what? Trimmin little branches?

    How about using it for fine detail in chainsaw carving.

    The one advantage I see is for free hanging pipe/wood, and irregular shaped objects that’s impossible to brace the recip saw shoe against, this would cut a lot easier without jumping around.

    I like this! Reminds me why the STIHL smaller models saws/bars are so popular for detail work.

    Could this also be a good pumpkin carving tool for the upcoming festivities : D

    Good one, Mark, I think it would be really good for carving.

    ……all sorts of carving! 😉

    Or those guys that do ice sculptures. I always envied those carving dudes. A skill I’m pretty sure I’ll never possess.

    OK, but I would likely just use something else. An OMT comes to mind. And for pipe, maybe plastics but metal pipes I would suspect would pooch the blade pretty quick.

    It’s a neat little chainsaw, but too bad the professional (blue) batteries don’t fit in the tool. as far as I know the blades cost around 24 euros, so 30 USD.

    I could just remove the outer cover on the battery and it would fit or even trim it with a Dremel tool. I am hoping madman can get one shipped in from Europe.

    Oh no doubt, I wonder if they’ll come out with blades for other purposes, but seeing it’s a green tool probably not.

    I liked the idea on the video for a metal cutting blade for it. That would be nice.

    I watched it yesterday, kinda expensive for a blade, the battery might be a problem as you mentioned @madman_us
    It might work well for little wood carving, very detailed work… wouldnt it?
    As I dont work with wood, I’m just guessing here.
    Looks pretty solid, I just dont like that kinda green.
