Answer: 
The Ryobi 40v batteries should be universal, I use the same one for the trimmer and chain saw. Some are rating for more or less watt hours of kilowatt hours but that just means the will last longer or shorter, same 40v system.

Answer: 
Yes, they will work. I did what you are thinking. I purchased the 40v lithium mower first. It came with two batteries and a charger. I then purchased the 40v chainsaw by itself. The mower batteries work well in it! Enjoy!

Answer: 
Just do a search here at homedepot.com for "ryobi 40v" You will see the charger and the battery sold separately. If you don't have the chainsaw yet, then just get the saw that comes with the battery and charger. I got this one (with no battery or charger) because I already had a charger and batteries that came with the 40v lithium mower.

Answer: 
They sell a battery and charger separately online here if you search for "40v Ryobi" on homedepot.com you should see them. However, I might recommend that you purchase the string trimmer or some other 40v piece of equipment that comes with the charger and battery since you might actual save some money this way.

Answer: 
Sounds like the chain is not on the drive sprocket or the sprocket is no longer attached to drive shaft. I think I read a previous post which spoke of this. Remove battery, take chain cover off and verify chain on sprocket and/or that sprocket is attached/keyed to the drive shaft.

Answer: 
You're wise to have an "extra" chain on hand just in case. If you hit a wire or other hard object encased in a tree, it happens all the time, your day is over without another chain. Home Depot has a selection of replacement chains. Their prices are high ---- it's not the Dollar Store ----- but when you need a chain you'll be glad a spare is in your tool box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi 40V cordless Chain Saw Light to use, cuts well and I'm very pleased with it. April 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by $0 volt cordless chain saw This chain saw it is light and has amazing power . It does a great job April 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Small and portable Seems to do a good job but the only thing I didn't like was ta hat the retaining clip that holds tge gear on to drive the chain fell off and chain came off. I had to go to Harbor Freight and pick up another clip to repair it with only minimum use. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy It, you won't go wrong This is my second one. First one had to go in for repairs after almost 3 years of terrific service. Was not able to wait for it to be returned, and can always use a spare. This saw cuts better than gas saws and is by far the best cordless around. Believe me, you cannot go wrong with this saw. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Saw The Ryobi 40 volt chainsaw is a great little saw i bought a second one i have cut firewood with mine i highly recommend all Ryobi 40 volt tools i have the chainsaw,lawn mower,and snow blower and i love all three.PS it cuts almost as fast as a gas saw. Hope this review helps. July 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not the best purchase ever easy to use but battery life is not what was expected. charges quickly but continuos use is minimal. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi 40 volt chainsaw The saw was able to do everything that I needed it to do. Light weight trimming and small tree cutting should be no problem for this saw. Light, well balanced and ample power. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Looks like I purchased on Craigslist I purchased this brand new from Home Depot online. However, it showed up in a brown cardboard box without any original packaging, and no packaging material. I was shocked. The chain saw was finicky and would only work with battery at 100% full. I already contacted HD and will be returning. This RYOBI product might be OK, but my experience with HD here was shocking. I'm hoping if I try again with a new one it will work fine with battery.
