‘Like a hot knife through butter’: This powerful mini chain saw is down to $40

It’s looking to be a scorching summer, so much so that even the trees are drooping. That means only one thing: Pruning! Not only is pruning a great way to get some refreshing — and productive — outdoor time, it’s a good bet that a lot of your plants could use a trim. Amazon has an efficient, crazy-affordable way to get it done: the Saker Mini Chain Saw. This popular yard tool is easy to use and perfect for cutting through thicker branches.


This chopper has a high-efficiency motor that handles even thick branches with ease, all while weighing under 3 pounds. 

$40 at Amazon

This saw has been discounted as steeply before, but only for Prime members. Now it’s 50% off for everyone. That’s well worth your hard-earned dough, especially when you consider that miniature chain saws from other brands like Craftsman are $90 or more. It’s the No. 1 bestseller in its category for a reason!

If you have trees, they probably need a bit of pruning. Certain varieties even require it to stay healthy throughout the year. Compared with a pair of traditional pruning shears, this little chain saw makes the job practically effortless.

This chain saw is only 4 inches long. There’s a safety lock that has to be pressed before the saw activates, and it comes with a handy carrying case, so you can safely store the device when it’s not in use. The battery is a 20-volt, 1500mAh rechargeable. It can still get bogged down when cutting particularly thick branches, but it’s sufficient for most jobs.

This little chain saw has skyrocketed in popularity and has over 8,300 five-star reviews.

“I’m so glad I didn’t spend a bunch of money buying a lot bigger electric saw,” one reviewer said. “All I really need to do is cut small branches and saplings. This little guy did it with ease. I was really surprised at the power, to be honest with you. … It cuts through small saplings like a hot knife through butter. I would most definitely recommend this for small jobs.”

“One of my favorite purchases!” another fan raved. “I love to help with yard work, and with 3 acres of oak trees, chain saws are a must! But sometimes I just need a little chain saw for the smaller limbs. This fits the bill perfectly! It is so easy to use, and as an almost 50-year-old woman, I like that it’s not huge and bulky.”

“My neighbor has a pine tree that constantly rains down seeds in my backyard, causing a LOT of saplings to sprout,” said a third shopper. “I was periodically using hedge trimmers to take them down, but the Florida heat meant that I neglected this all summer and then some… I gave this a chance and I am glad I did! I was able to cut down half the saplings in about an hour or less. With trimmers, it would be a miserable, sweaty, all-day affair.”

“I had a palm tree growing in a hard-to-access location so I couldn’t use a larger saw,” a reviewer said. “It worked as advertised. It did freeze up on me a couple of times, but I was asking a lot of the small blade going through a pretty thick trunk. Because it was lightweight, it helped because I had to stretch to reach it.”

Another user warned that the battery wasn’t always stable. “The only downside is that the vibration kept causing the battery to fall off, but I simply cupped it in one hand while I sawed and that actually provided more sawing stability.”


Identical to the other version in most respects, this saw comes with two batteries instead of one. PS: It’s also available in pink!
