TACKLIFE 15-Amp 18-Inch Electric Corded Chainsaw Review
TACKLIFE electric corded chainsaw is one of the cheapest you can buy and it even has 18-inch Oregon bar and chain. It’s powered by 15-Amp motor that allows chain to move at up to 43 feet per second (13 m/s).
It seems too good to be true at this pricing but is it?

TACKLIFE electric chainsaw isn’t something you would buy if you tackle heavy duty jobs daily but it handles less demanding ones surprisingly well. Think taking down small trees or cutting 8 inch logs, limbs, branches, saplings, planks etc. It can handle more serious jobs too but cutting starts to become noticeably slower that with more powerful and expensive chainsaw.
TACKLIFE GCS15A electric chainsaw is mostly made of plastic so it does feel kinda cheap.

TACKLIFE electric chainsaw is cord powered but doesn’t come with one so you have to buy one separately.
Cords that are up to 25 feet long should have gauge rating (AWG) of 14 whereas cords that are 25-50 feet long – 12 AWG. Cords that are longer than 50 feet are not recommended and you should avoid using them.
