Which battery is included?

Does this chainsaw come with the slimline battery or the bigger battery?

My chainsaw came with the slimline battery and provides a great spare for my other 40 volt tools.

bar chain oil same gas saw ? I was given 2 cycle in store.

Asked by: mike335
Thank you for asking, Mike335. We do not recommend using 2-cycle engine oil in the place of bar and chain oil. For your bar and chain reservoir, we suggest only using bar and chain oil. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in Ryobi! -Keri

Customer Reviews

12 in. 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw - 1.5 Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 165.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Its ok The chainsaw is nice, but they have a tiny clip holding the chain to the gear. The tiny clip keeps falling off. It should be something more substantial holding the chain. After 8-10 times of falling off lost the little clip. the part reorder site is TERRIBLE! I probably would go with a simple gas powered next time. Same price but better quality. I hate to say that about ryobi; i have alot of their tools and this is the first time i needed to replace parts. I have 40v weed eater, Backpack Blower, two drills, circular saw, miter saw... and maybe a few more.. i like ryobi.. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 40 volt slim line battery The chain saw is more than adequate, however the slim line 40 volt battery provided with the product is absolutely unreliable.these slim line 40 volt batteries do not work in the charger provided. I have 2 of them neither one works. Luckily I have some 4 and 5 amp 40 volt batteries

I returned it and repurchased another one. The second one - battery doesn't take a charge. I will be returning this one tomorrow. Needless to say I will not be purchasing another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just another day on the farm. When I don't need the big chain saw, I pull out the little Robi cordless. It handles most jobs I have around the farm and it's light enough to take in muddy areas where the footing isn't always great. The battery doesn't last very long when cutting the larger logs, but I can burn through a fair amount of smaller ones with one charge. Even though the battery goes pretty quick on larger logs, it still cuts through them like butter. I love it! The oil lasts about as long as one battery life. I do wish I had gotten the larger battery though--I guess I know what to ask for for Christmas this year! It's even light enough for a man to use, if one were so inclined :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good little chainsaw for yard clean up... Similar to other reviewers, this is a great tool for cleaning up small yard work. I recommend using it on smaller logs/trees (ideally 6-8" in diameter). Anything larger and it does get bogged down or has to be recharged frequently. I also purchased an extra, higher capacity 4h battery which makes a big different in performance for this saw. However, I regret not just buying the 14" brushless engine model. For a marginal increase in price I think it's a more efficient and more powerful saw that could just as easily handle small things but also cross over to bigger logs and trees I have on my property

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ryobi cordless Chain Saw I bought this saw for my wife as she had been asking for a saw that was easy to use. Gas chain saws are heavy and not always easy to start. This saw you just squeeze the trigger and start cutting. It is light in weigh and easy for her to carry. The saw has great features and is self lubricating which is a must. It is a great size for cutting small trees and limbs. It charged up quickly and held the charge long enough for her to do what she wanted to do. She is happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Tool I am a professional and use cordless tools way up trees all the time. I have used a number of different brands but this Ryobi will be the one that I purchase in quantity in the future. ONE "BEWARE": THIS COMES WITH A 2AH 40-V BATTERY. BE SURE TO GET THE 4AH 40-V BATTERY. The larger battery has an amazing work time between charges. With the 2AH battery this is OK as a home handyman special but with the 4AH it is a reliable professional tool.

My dad and I bought it for my mom for her birthday. She absolutely loves it! The only thing is that it leaks oil sometimes. When we called they thought it was because of the drastic temperature changes that we've been having (we live in Kansas). Other than that it's a great purchase and I do recommend it for anyone looking for a light weight chainsaw.
