It does what it says it does
I've used it as a two-man saw to cut logs, and it worked well. The wood was very aged, slippery elm, which is tough. Once my son and I got the rhythm, the work went ok. It did not go through like a "hot knife. . .", but it was ok. I expect that in fresh,or soft woods, there won't be any problem, based on this experience.
