Customer Questions & Answers

Does Home Depot rice match or beat prices of an identical item form another website?

The same item on another website is $169.99
Asked by: Doug
Hi Doug, here is a description of our Price Matching policy that can be reviewed on (linked below for reference): 'If you find a current lower price on an identical, in-stock item from any local retailer, we will match the price and beat it by 10%* (in-store only, low price guarantee). *Excludes: online purchases, special orders, bid pricing, volume discounts, open-box merchandise, labor and installation, sales tax, rebate and free offers, and typographical errors. Online purchases are subject to Price-Match only.’ Price matching also would only occur to match new-in-the-box, ready for immediate shipment and identical, in-stock items from our online, retail major competitors and does not apply to going-out-of-business sales, or discontinued, clearance, obsolete, seasonal, close-outs, used, open box, displays or distressed merchandise of our competitors. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!

Customer Reviews

G-MAX 12 in. 40-Volt Cordless Chainsaw with 2 Ah Battery and Charger is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Impulse buy for my wife, but find that I am constantly using for small jobs around the house and farm. Impressed with battery life and how much cutting power for the weight. Had to trim some limbs blocking my Moms driveway. Took my 20" gas saw but never pulled the cord as I used the electic saw to do the whole job. Several pickup truck loads of limbs. Had to cut most of them from the top of a ladder and this saw was perfect for reaching out to get them cut. I hope my wife does not catch me using "her" saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chain falling off I bought a month ago. Used it for a minute, chain fell off and then realized I needed chain belt oil. bought chain belt oil. Started it up and....chain fell off. Supposed to be easy to use and it is but it's not easy to figure out how to keep the chain on

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well... I have had other brands of battery chain saws for small trimming jobs. I really feel that my green works 40v 12" saw is the best. I have hand and finger issues that this saw enables me to over come compared to a small gas saw. I use this saw several times a week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I received this as a gift at Christmas only to find no battery or charger included. When I looked at the cost of getting this, I find that it is almost half the cost of the 12 inch chainsaw.
