Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power Beyond Expectations! I've used this brushless chain saw a half dozen times since purchasing it last month. It's power is beyond my expectations. This thing rocks! It's battery-powered which made me think I'd get a good powerful hour of work done with it. Not the case at all!! I had four strong hours of cutting. I cut four twelve inch diameter and twenty-feet tall trees into pieces that fit into my City and County-issued green waste bin. I'm not joking. This chain saw will do what you need it to do... and will for a long time. You'll tire out before it will. It's one of the best products I've purchased in a long time. Extremely satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I have only used this chainsaw once, but so far I am impressed. I had a gas and wired electric prior to this, and both did well. The gas is hard to beat for power and ability to use all day. But I had a hard time keeping it running. Anyway, this cordless electric is great. I does what I need it for (mild to moderate use, lots of branches and small to medium trees). I didn't get a chance to run the battery down, so I don't know how long it lasts, but on my blower, I got about 30 minutes out of it. So yeah...have a spare battery charged and ready if you plan on making a day of it with this chainsaw. Otherwise, nothing to complain about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh my goodness we love Ryobi 40v tools Our neighbors recommended these Ryobi combo 40V tools. I run around blowing out garage and back porch constantly. We have two year old twins and life is hectic. We live of huge treed property and now have exchangeable 40volt blower, saw, and edger. If ryobi would now make a 40volt power mop, I’d be the happiest woman on the planet. Bought a battery operated saw (Black and deckard) years ago that was junk. Ryobi has blown me away. These interchangeable battery operated power tools are over the top amazing. Thank you, Ryobi. Now I’ll be patient, but can you please develope a power mop tile cleaning tool for Saltillo tile. We own blower, saw, and edger. My husband and I love them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not having to mix gas and oil is great This is exactly wanted I needed in a chainsaw. I bought a new gas model a couple of years ago and only used it a couple of times. I went to use it several months later and it just wouldn't start. I only use premium gas in my outdoor equipment and put a fuel stabilizer in the can. I took to a local shop and they told me the ethynol in the gas just kills carborators. I read the reviews of this model and decided to give it a shot. The first time I used it to help my folks at their house, I was amazed at the power it had. After about 45 minutes, I had to change batteries. (I have several other Ryobi 40V tools. It's so nice not to mix gas and oil any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp tough dependable When you have 2 giant trees in your backyard a cedar and a redwood you need a tough very sharp and always dependable saw. Being 71 my days of pulling a pull cord and hoping a heavy chain saw will start have passed! But thankfully I've lived long enough for lithium batteries and a company that only sells a product after a proven need and after it's a worthwhile tool! I just bought a second one for my brother for his special bday.! I had an 18 volt model that was stolen along with all of my Ryobis by a theif with great taste! While the 18volt was good the 40volt is light years improvement! Buy it and you can't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising battery power! I purchased a battery powered Ryobi blower a year or so and was so impressed with it that when I saw the double tool deal on the 40 volt trimmer and chainsaw I purchased it, I couldn't wait to use the chainsaw! I had a tree that at the trunk was about 20 inches in diameter and this 14" chainsaw cut it like butter! Obviously I couldn't cut through it in one cut I had to do half and then do the other side and down it came! Since then I have been telling all my friends about Ryobi battery powered products and I myself will be purchasing more of your products, thank You again for a high guality product! Here's a picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy and works great Needed a chain saw to help clear some brush and small trees for a trail. Didnt want to deal with mixing gas. I have other ryobi 40v garden tools so decided to try this. It works great, has the power to cut through thick trees but is light and easy to handle for cutting off braches and get to awkward positions. Easy to start way better than pull starting a gas chainsaw. Plus the the chain slows down fast after you let off. This is a great festure for cutting down small trees then putting the saw down to drag them out of the way without having to leave a chainsaw running. Battery lasts about an hour depending on how much cutting you do, perfect for small jobs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprised Husband My husband was against a cordless saw so I got it for me for our anniversary. I’ve only used it once but he thinks it’s great. He has only used it for cutting up limbs and pruning small stuff but I don’t see why it wouldn’t take down an appropriate sized tree. It has plenty of power and the convenience of pushing a button as opposed to pull starting cannot be compared. The only negative comment is that I managed to slip the chain when I used it and I just found out that he did too. I don’t know if it’s operator error or something with the saw.
