    Q:

    Is the other saws going to catch on fire after 5 minutes of use, as my first one did?

    A:

    I think they're designed to burst into flames at the 3 minute mark so yours may be malfunctioning.

    Q:

    How long does the battery last after fully charged?

    A:

    It depends on what you are cutting and the load you put on the saw, it will shut down if you don't want the battery to heat up.

    Q:

    Is it possible to swap the saw bars from a 16" to 14" or from a 16" to 18"?

    A:

    It has the standard bar like most chainsaws with 2 bolts and sprocket that chain goes over.

    Q:

    What is the difference between the xcu03z and xcu04z?

    A:

    I believe one is brushless and the other is not. Do your research and don't waste time.

    Q:

    Do they have a case for it?

    A:

    I haven't found the right one for my saw yet, so you will have to purchase a 3 party case.
