Remington RM1425 Electric Chainsaw Review
This compact model is perfect for all your small projects or trimming. Made by Remington, the name Limb N Trim says it all. It has covered all the main bases with a compact, lightweight design, a smart, push button oiling system, and external chain tension adjusting, and made up of rugged construction with many other features that are user-friendly for just about anyone.
This 14-inch lightweight chainsaw is considered small, but don’t let the size fool you—this model packs a mighty punch and has earned our respect as one of our top ten favorite electric chainsaws for its durability and reliability with those smaller projects.
Fully assembled right out of the box, just add the chain oil, plug in, oil the chain, and you are good to go! This compact saw is ready to pack a punch to your project. Awakening with just a squeeze of the trigger, its electric motor roars as smaller branches and limbs do not stand a chance against this mighty little monster. At only 6.2 pounds, it weighs less than your lazy cat—but is probably a lot meaner, powering through your trees like cutting butter, confidently and unapologetic.
The well-built construction of this chainsaw includes a smart wraparound hand guard that keeps your hands away from debris while working. There’s a 14-inch low kickback bar which is small, but durable enough to handle residential limbing and arbor-related tasks around the yard or farm.
And the lightweight design makes it easy to cut those high branches without straining muscles or experiencing fatigue. A power-packed tool that is ideal for novices and those who really don’t want to break a sweat. It you’re looking to get a good biceps workout while sawing wood, you will need a much heavier saw. However, if your job requires some time, this saw makes it easy to perform enduring pruning and cutting tasks with less fatigue.
This chainsaw gives you a lot of control over your sawing experience and performance. The chain tension can be controlled with an external adjustment, keeping your chain at an ideal tension at all times. The push-button oiler produces lubrication on demand, letting you add just the right amount of oil to your chain.
There is a chain oil window used to check the oil level, this should be at least halfway up the window. This oil is housed in a small reservoir with a bulb on the cap, just push the bulb to oil the chain. The oil does tend to leak out during storage, but this is easily remedied by first draining out the oil before storing away. The reservoir is small, so this can be easily done.
Another nice feature about the Remington RM1425 Limb N Trim is that it is quiet during idling. No more annoying buzz in between cuts, which will not only make you a happier camper, but also those who have to live around you. As with all electrical chainsaws, the unit cord is short, so you will need an outdoor-approved extension cord to operate the saw.
