October 4, 2015
will i be able to remove the safe-t feature when necessary ? i know from experience that it (safe-t tip) can bind up when cutting though larger trees. so i would like to have this option.
or does ryobi possibly sell a 18"/20" bar that dosent have the safe-t tip?

i own a large assortment of the one+ tools, some from the start it & some from the newer lithium ion line(drill,saw,sawzall,fans, weedwhip, spotlights,flashlight, sander, little vacuum, bigger shopvac/blower,10"chainsaw,jigsaw,caulkgun all work great. the ole style impact driver took unbelievable amounts of abuse (metal roofing) before it started getting touchy and needed to be retired for a new green one working on abusing that one now.
the little radios don't take abuse so well tho, just bought like my 4th/5th but this is the first green one
purchased the Ryobi 2-Cycle 25cc Gas Full Crank Straight Shaft String Trimmer I've had no issues with that all season and again i am not easy on my tools so i know what i can expect from a ryobi tool

thanks for your time and your tools & please say yes

Answer: 
Yes you can remove the tip. The manual will even tell you that you can. It is necessary if you are using a wedge or performing larger cuts sometimes. Just put it back on after for safety.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 141 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works very well I have a 40cc model with a 18" bar. I have had it 10 years. Keep good gas and bar oil in it and it just goes. This weekend I had to fall 3 trees. The biggest was 24" in diameter. The chain smoked but the motor just ran. Considering it cost me $89, I am very pleased with it and had to share this. July 31, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CHEAP SAW The saw was difficult to start and on the first day of use, the chain came off and bent so that it would not go back on. I can't find a replacement chain at Home Depot. July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi 2 in. 46cc Chain Saw - Dependable I had this chain saw for about 5 years now and it keeps working each time I used it. I had to cut a big tree into pieces the first time I used it so I did not have to hire an expensive tree cutter. It may take a few pull after a long time of not using it but after that it is easy to start just make sure you put fresh gasoline. Overall I recovered the cost I paid for this unit $199 at the time for the first two summers by not hiring tree cutter. It is dependable. June 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value Great value for price. I would recommend to keep on the jobsite. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Real workhorse for the price. I have used this chainsaw for about 3 years now and have been extremely impressed with it's performance. I recently took down a 35 ft. black walnut tree that was 26" diameter at the base and cut it up with this saw. I also used it with an attachment to rip cut slabs (with a rip chain) and it performed well. The only thing is I would like to see a beefier pull assembly. This one is plastic and i have had to replace but it's not expensive and is easy to replace. Still going strong!! May 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by You get what you pay for First, I will preface with; I love Ryobi power tools. I have many of their drills, saws and other lithium battery operated power tools. They are great and I have never had any issues with them. The chainsaw was very rough running and difficult to get started. I have used many chainsaws before and know how to properly use them, this one was bad. 20 plus pulls to get a brand new chainsaw, with brand new non-ethanol, properly mixed gas running is ridiculous. Then the chain came off, which is normal, but once I put it back on (the correct direction) the chain was locked as somehow the bar no longer allowed the chain to rotate around it, just from the chain coming off. I returned it. March 22, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK but wouldn't get again I have had this saw for 2 years and have cut down about 6 small trees. When i first got the saw it was hard to start. The spark plug that came with it (Champion RCJ6Y) is not the spark plug that is listed in the manual (Champion RCJ4). I replaced the spark plug. Now it starts pretty easy but you must follow the starting directions exactly. The engine runs great and has plenty of power as long as the chain is sharp. The chain that came with it was dull. I bought a new Oregon H78 chain and it cuts great! I have found that the chain adjuster gets clogged with saw dust easy and must be cleaned frequently. And now the oiler isn't lubing the bar like it is supposed too. When the saw works its great but it seems like I am always working on it. March 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done Worked right out of the box. Took down and chopped up a 24" diameter oak tree. This saw cuts great when chain is new, but the oak dulls chain quickly. Get a 3/16 sharpening file when you get the saw. A chain upgrade might hold the edge better. Follow the starting instructions to the letter and it will start up on a few pulls. Warm starting is hard if you don't follow the instructions. I increased the idle just a tiny bit, but that might just be my saw. Light weight and very little vibration. Gas and bar oil tanks could be bigger for longer work time. All in all a great value that does what it is suppose to do. October 23, 2012
