How it works

The Zeeksaw six-inch mini chainsaw packs a powerful punch with its pure copper motor and high-efficiency lithium battery. The chainsaw has two 5C 20V rechargeable batteries, delivering a runtime of up to 70 minutes. When the batteries need a boost, they take around two hours to recharge fully.

The low-kickback chainsaw boasts a chain speed of 22ft/s, and at under three pounds, it's lightweight enough to tackle high-up branches and awkwardly placed shrubs. Small but mighty, the Zeeksaw mini chainsaw can cut through a six-inch-thick branch in seconds — making quick work of your backyard projects and spring gardening.

When you buy the mini chainsaw on Amazon, you'll also receive a handful of accessories, including a screwdriver, carrying case, oil bottle and protective gloves.

Here's what reviewers say

With its 4.5-star average rating and 2,600 reviews, the Zeeksaw mini chainsaw has earned an "Amazon's Choice" title and top marks for its safety features, lightweight build, and overall easy-to-use design.

While reviewers were "skeptical at first," they say the mini chainsaw "can actually cut some solid branches."

One shopper writes it's "light enough to bring in a small pack" and notes the battery life is "quite good" — it's "well worth the price."

Another five-star reviewer calls the mini chainsaw "outstanding" and says the device is "quick to charge" and subsequently "holds [the] charge well."

It's "powerful and tough," they say. "I have cut trees double the length of the blade with ease." It's a "great" purchase for trimming roadways and trails.

The chainsaw is "absolutely amazing," lauds a third shopper. It's "lighter than an electric drill" and "cuts through small trees like butter." Adding, it "deserves a 10/10 rating."

While the vast majority of reviews give the mini chainsaw a five-star rating, some note the chain adjustment is "quite flimsy" and advise other shoppers to "watch out for over-heating."

The verdict

With spring gardening, backyard projects and camping trips on the horizon, Amazon reviewers recommend adding the Zeeksaw six-inch mini chainsaw to your outdoor tools arsenal. The mini chainsaw can cut through small trees and shrubs "like butter" and is loved for its lightweight build and easy-to-use design.
