40V 14" Brushless Chain Saw with 4Ah Battery & Charger
40V 14" Brushless Chain Saw with 4Ah Battery & Charger is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1119.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Capable! I am very happy with my 40v Ryobi chainsaw! I have been a licensed Forester for over 35 years, and have owned many gas powered professional saws. I use this saw for trail maintenance and low volume firewood cutting and it works as well as any small gas powered saw out there. The 4ah battery lasts as long as a tank full of gas would and chain speed is equivalent to a gas saw. The only reason that I give it only 4 stars is the lack of a chain brake. An adjustable oiler would also be a very worthy addition; the automatic chain oiler puts out a higher than needed amount of oil but that is better than too little oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations I have used this saw 4 Saturdays in a row clearing saplings and small trees up ranging from 2 to 10in diameter around our yard, as well as cutting some atv trails through the woods. So far I could not be happier with it! I have only had gas saws in the past, but this saw cuts as well as McCullough I used to have, and much better than a couple of other brands I have owned. And I LOVE not having to yank on a pull rope. Several reviews mention battery issues after a few uses. So far I have not ran into any with mine (keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t, because I REALLY like this saw.) but as I stated, I have only used it 4 times, so we will see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, powerful! I received this as a Christmas present and I couldn’t believe it. I’d asked for it off hand and in passing talking to my aunt. I needed a chainsaw for tree cutting projects but didn’t want the hassle of maintaining a gas engine. When my aunt asked what brands I’d be interested in I immediately thought of Ryobi, as I have several of their other battery powered tools, all of which have served me magnificently. This saw is no exception. It is clean and relatively light weight. It’s gone through big logs like butter, all while making such a small amount of noise as compared to a gas powered saw. It fits comfortably in hand. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought with some doubts that I would be able to use on my own. I am 70 year old female weighing 125 lbs. Never used a chain saw before. I just knew there had to be a easier way to remove brush than my loppers. I asked saleman if he thought I could manage. His reply ,yes, just keep oil tank filled with bar and chain lubricant. If you don't like just return. Handed me the oil and sent me on my way. I love it. It is easy for me to handle. Makes cleaning up brush so much easier. I already owned the Ryobi cordless string trimmer, which is just the right size for me. Can't wait to purchase my next tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful and Light weight I used to have a gas powered chainsaw for years, but decided on trying out this Ryobi one when I just passed by it at the store. At first, I thought it wouldn't last too long on the job to take the tree out. Once home I charged the battery over night, and come morning I had to take out the old tree in back. Ryobi has always surprised me with their 18v+ sets I have, and now this 40v chainsaw kept up from beginning to end of the tree, even still had juice to break down bigger pieces into smaller ones to use later for the fireplace. Ryobi, Keep it up with surprises because I have no more gas powered equipment. Cars next maybe.... lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought the chainsaw a few weeks ago and I'm very happy with it. Out of the box the chain was very sharp, the saw has plenty of power and the battery lasts longer than I do. The saw is a good weight, not so light that it feels like a toy yet not so heavy as to wear me out. I've been using it for pruning, cutting everything from 1" limbs up to 5" or more. It just melts through the smaller stuff and pulls nice large chips on the bigger stuff. I've use a lot of gas powered saws in the past but for what I'm using it for, this battery powered one thing just rocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The power! I have lots of trees to cut up and was using the 18v 10 inch. Took forever to cut anything 8" or more. I got this new chainsaw as soon as it was in stock at my local HD. OMG this thing is the best! How did I not buy this before. If you have wood you want to cut, big or small, do yourself a favor and buy this 40v over the 18v chainsaw, you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No fuss, no Muss After attempting to start my 2 year old gas powered chain saw, I had to give up as the pull cord stayed out without retracting. Up to then, it worked okay. I thought about having it fixed but instead I went to buy a battery operated Ryobi saw. What a great move. It just happens that the battery is the same as the 40V battery in my Ryobi lawn mower. I was hesitant at first thinking that it may not have the power of a gas saw but it went through 5-6 inch trunks like butter. It was so easy to use with no gas or pull start. Just slide the lock switch on and press the trigger. I doubt that I will go back to gas operated lawn tools after this experience.
