ReviewSpecificationWhere to buy
The Homelite ZR43120 16in 12A electric chainsaw is one excellent piece with embedded features that will surely make your cutting jobs efficiently and effectively done. It is capable of cutting logs and trees with the maximum diameter of 32 inches.

Aside from that you can really rely on its 12-Ampere motor in terms of performance. And also with its tool-less chain tensioner, you will find adjusting the chains easily.

This chainsaw is indeed easy to handle with its handgrip attached in the handle which lessens effort and reduces fatigue. This piece of equipment also comes with a case for easy storage and handling. When you buy this piece, you are also guaranteed with a full two-year limited warranty.



In terms of performance, it is really impressive. It is capable of cutting hardwoods like that of a Live Oak a lot of times without any technical problems encountered. This chainsaw is capable of cutting any kind of wood. On the other hand, this piece equipment is very convenient to use especially with its tool-less mechanism in adjusting the chain. With its auto-oiler system, maintaining the said equipment makes it much easier compared to those saw which don’t have the said feature.


The Homelite 16-inch 12-Ampere chainsaw has some issues with its parts, particularly the chains and oil consumption. The common problem goes with the chains or blade that comes off the saw quite easily most of the time. Aside from that, there are instances that the chain tension was kind of loose and jammed even though the chainsaw was newly purchased and used for the first time. In terms of oil consumption, it consumes more oil than it was expected.

The problem with the oil other than what was mentioned above is that it’s difficult to identify since there is no indicator in the saw regarding this issue and other than that the manual or guide that goes with the package is somehow incomplete. The user will have some problems troubleshooting then, thus requiring and wasting a lot of time.
