It's a 10" saw, so 8" is about as much as you should cut safely. As the limb size approaches the size of the bar the chance of kickback increases.
If you know what you are doing & being very careful. there is no limit to the size. it will just take a long time to make many cuts & rest the motor. The key is proper cutting angles.
I cut a 10 inch tree just a few days ago

Well it says not recommended for larger than 6"
But that being said I have cut branches 12" in diameter and trees
14" in diameter with no problems.
The motor says 8 amp which is the same as a smaller table saw,
it has a strong little motor for the price.
I have had mine for 4+ years and love it, its lite and works with Or
without the pole making it versatile for cutting branches that are on the ground.

If you were to use the saw without the pole you could cut through an eight inch diameter log with ease! But with the saw on the pole I would not recommend going through anything thicker than four to five inches in diameter tops! Reason being is at that thickness the branch is usually over ten feet long and heavy, at this length you could easily get knocked down! Be careful not to cut through your extension cord and don't get knocked off of your ladder, if you use one! Always wear a hardhat when using this product! For ten to twenty bucks more you could get a battery operated one which would probably please you better! Gas I am sure is the best kind but it will cost you five times the price!
