Cutting performance

Milwaukee 2727-21HD is one of the best cutting electric chainsaws and is comparable to many gas units. It has enough power to take down 20+ inch thick trees and cuts thick limbs and logs. It cuts fast and is one of the few electric chainsaws that could actually suffice for professional use. It has brushless motors and since it has electric motor it provides you with 100% of the torque at any RPM.

With that said it won’t cut as fast as top-of-the-range professional chainsaws even though it’s not far off. What this means is that for professional use it perhaps isn’t as good as expensive STIHL of Husqy but for homeowners it’s a great choice. It’s quiet compared to gas chainsaws so you won’t annoying your neighbors. On top of that it’s also healthier to use as you don’t emit harmful to breath fumes. It also starts up immediately and required less maintenance than a gas chainsaw.

Only flaw of Milwaukee 2727-21HD is that bar oil will leak when you store it so you have to drain it if you don’t want to things get messy. Some consumers have also had issues with chain coming off but they must be doing something wrong or have defective units.
