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.

Customer Reviews

12 in. 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 158.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chainsaw has exceeded my expectations. I do not require a lot of cutting, so this Ryobi 12" ... This chainsaw has exceeded my expectations. I do not require a lot of cutting, so this Ryobi 12" was perfect. The 40-Volt battery allowed me to easily cut 4 medium sized trees-- into 18" lengths--with power to spare. In all honesty, I was a little miffed when I first unpacked the chainsaw. I purchased it because the other Ryobi products that I own run off the same 40-Volt battery--weed-eater, edge-trimmer, and hedge-clippers. My only regret is that the 40-volt battery for the chain-saw--the information on the box prominently stated 40-Volt but made no other mention--had a much less WH than the 95 WH that came with the weed-eater and that the battery was defective and would not charge--the situation was quickly remedied at my local Home Depot. Overall, the Ryobi equipment I own is more than satisfactory than the gas driven versions I wanted to replace in order to lessen my impact on our ecology. I highly recommend this product and continue to look for ways to add to my collection. I tried to attach a photo, but I could not get it from my I-phone to your site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw for Limbing This is a great little saw for pruning trees. Very light weight makes it easy to handle even on a ladder. Plenty of power for cutting and light enough for one-handed operation.

He was really excited to try to use it, but unfortunately it had a bad battery, wouldn't charge. The weird thing was too, when it arrived at the house before Christmas, it came in its original box with no packing slip. Luckily I saved the email so we can try to exchange it. So for now, I would say no, I wouldn't recommend this product yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Arrived used and broken We have already retuned this product. The box arrived damaged/old and the chainsaw dirty, used and would not start. This was a Christmas gift for my husband.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Battery lasts really long. Impressive power for a cordless. With a 12 inch bar it kinda feels like a toy, but it gets the job done. And it's pretty quite
