Questions & Answers


I bought this to trim some dead limbs off the trees in the backyard. The branches are about 2 inc...

Asked by DVD May 14, 2021

Although this battery powered chainsaw works very well it does not have the chain "speed" of a gas powered chainsaw. This is likely why the cuts are not as clean as you expect.

Cant turn the oil key to add oil, is there something im missing?

Asked by Alayna March 22, 2021

To add bar oil you just turn the fill cap a 1/4ish turn and pull out. It is not thred. It does get a bit stuck becuase of the stickyness of the bar oil.

what kind of oil does it use?

Asked by Atilas February 23, 2021

Bar and chain oil

Picture shows chainsawDCCS620P1 has 2 batteries installed please explain this

Asked by Wayne February 2, 2021

Not sure what picture you are referring to. The chainsaw only has one battery. What you might think is a battery is located just behind the forward loop/below the trigger. It says DEWALT on it. That is the motor, not a battery. The only battery is mounted on the very back of the chainsaw.

can I use a 14" blade with this

Asked by wusdava January 19, 2021

The bar is for a 12” chain. You can downsize to the 10” from the pole saw but there aren’t any bigger bars that I’m aware of. 12” is really the max that saw can handle anyway though.

What replacement chain should I purchase? Oregon R44, S44, R45, S45, or S48?

Asked by Tim January 15, 2021

I have been purchasing R45 replacement chains.

Chainsaw leaks oil when not in use quiet a bit leaves puddles is the something wrong also sprays alot when cutting

Asked by Rich December 10, 2020

Normal. Best to drain the bar oil when not in use.

The 20v chainsaw is not oiling the chain. Do i have to replace the oilpump?

Asked by TopCath December 3, 2020

There is no oil pump. the oil feeds by gravity whether the saw is running or not. If the oil does not feed then the tank must have drain while in storgae or you have a clogged oil line.

How long does the saw last with a full charge

Asked by Jer December 1, 2020

That depends on various factors. Size and type of wood, dry or wet, etc.

Will a DCB 120 battery operate this tool?

Asked by RonS December 1, 2020

The DCB120 is a 12V battery and this chainsaw requires a 20V battery. Therefore, it will not work.

Good for Small Trees and Limbing
I will echo a previous reviewer.....this little chainsaw does a good job for what it is intended to be used for......light duty work such as taking down small trees and cutting up limbs and brush. I am by no means an expert or very experienced with chainsaws, but this one was very easy to handle. I read the manual completely, filled the chainsaw properly with blade / chain oil and let it sit for a couple of hours. Then I went to work on some small ( 10 inch trunk diameter ) dead trees that had fallen during winter storms. The chainsaw went thru the fallen trees fairly easily. You do have take your time and let the blade do the work and not force the blade into the trunk. If you do, the blade will slow down considerably and you will put undue strain on the whole tool. However, if you take time, the chainsaw will go thru 10 inch logs fairly smoothly. As far as battery life, I am not exactly sure on this. I know that I was able to make about 25 cuts into the 10 inch tree trunk and another 25 cuts on 3 to 4 inch limbs and grape vine and still have juice left in the 5 amp battery......exactly how much left, I am not sure. Overall, a real nice little chainsaw that does a good job on small 8 to 10 inch trees and is good for cutting 3 to 4 inch limbs. It may be a little slow, but it will get the job done.

Great idea, maybe a redesign for the tree workers.
I use dewalt tools so this little gem goes well with my collection. I use this battery powered chainsaw when I climb trees or work out of a bucket lift. This saw has proven itself to me over and over. I have a 14” Oregon bar and chain and it cuts through 6”-9” oak with no problem -as long as you know what to look and do when operating a chainsaw. Example: let the chain do the work, keep a sharp chain, grease the bar nose, use light pressure when cutting and bucking motion when cutting. putting heavy pressure while cutting will stop the chain and drain the battery quicker. I have cut several canopies and even 12” pine with this saw. It’s made me money, and continues to do so. The reasons why I give this a 4 star rating when it can achieve a 5 out of five are: There needs to be an Ambidextrous trigger unlock, or even better, a grip safety like on all chainsaws. A way to add metal bumper spikes. The chain “chatters” or skips along the first contact of cutting. Especially when cutting hardwoods. Add a lanyard ring/attachment point. I use this saw to cut When I climb trees for removal. A way to attach this to my lanyard would be great. If dewalt R&D dept reads this I hope you guys do a redesign or even a new model in a top handle saw design with additions mention above, everything considered, I love it. I have no regrets about purchasing this.

Surprisingly bad considering the brand
Defective out of the box. Oiled and used less than 1 minute before smoke began pouring out of it. Would not recommend.

A little workhorse
I have used this chainsaw to cut down trees from 10 cm to 45 cm and it has worked beautifully. Cut down and cut up 1/2 cord of wood in two days this week.

1 Season, 3 trees, multiple batteries, going strong
Using this chainsaw and an 18” powercare bar/chain combo sold at Home Depot, I cut down a 36’ blue spruce, three 50’ birch, and a 30’ ginko tree this season. This includes chopping the trunks of all these trees into rounds for splitting as firewood. This dewalt chainsaw sustained multiple drops from a 20’ extension ladder and continued to function. I have also used this chainsaw to single handidly limb multiple trees. It is lightweight with more than enough cutting power than any comparable 12” chainsaw. As other reviewers have noted, if the chainsaw is stored upright with a full tank of oil it will leak bar oil. If you store the chainsaw on its side with the bad oil filler cap facing up, it will not leak oil. Overall, I highly recommend this chainsaw.

Great functionality and very Useful!
I had underestimated this chainsaw - doing clean up around the property and this chainsaw has been put to the test...and hasn’t failed! It’s the perfect size to teach with as well. The oil reservoir tends to run out faster than I’d like, but it’s a good amount too as it gives me reason to stop and rest. Thanks for a great product Dewalt!

Powerful, compact
I got this for Christmas from my daughters and I love it! I had no problems at all taking the major limbs off of this 17-year-old willow tree and being able to also cut it up into manageable pieces.

I purchased this to cleanup a pond at our ranch. I was skeptical, but it proved me wrong. This chainsaw was powerful enough to cut through 8 to 9 inch thick mesquite trees and many branches. The automatic oiler worked fine and kept the chain well lubricated throughout the day... I would buy it again. T. J. Molina

Not a bad little chainsaw
Purchesed saw to do some light tree trimming. I own several gas powered saws, there are times I don’t feel like using them for small jobs, so I thought I would try this out. I had a small tree come down in the last storm and used this saw to remove limbs and small branches. It worked really well. No issues. I was going to pull out my larger gas powered saw to cut the trunk but decided to use this saw instead. I was very impressed, it cut through the trunk with no issues. I let the saw do the work and didn’t force it through the cuts. In the hour I did the work the battery was down to half and the oil tank was almost empty. The only issue I have is the oil tank. It leaks oil everywhere. It definitely marks its spot. My gas powered chainsaws also leaks some oil but this takes the cake. Wish there was a way to adjust the flow. The directions say to empty the tank after use. It’s not very practical and you spill oil everywhere. I attached some photos of the tree trunk I cut. Even with the oil tank issue I would still recommend this saw just keep an eye on the oil level.

Solid saw
This saw will do more then it should. Dropping12 inch trees with a 12 inch saw isn't recommended, but it will do it. It will eat the battery when you go that big. 8 inch and under and this saw shines.i have the drill, driver and weed trimmer so this was a logical choice from a battery perspective. Would have been nice if they made a 16 that could use two 20v batteries.
