Asked by Willow October 15, 2019

Answer

Absolutely not. As the name implies, the 20v/60v Flexvolt batteries work on 20v tools or 60v tools. The 40v batteries only work in 40v tools.

It can run up to 1 hour of use.

Asked by DanTheManForth September 10, 2019

Answer

While it is possible with some modification, I strongly recommend against it. As you mentioned, this saw does not feature a dual stud bar attachment like most professional saws (some battery saws do, like the Milwaukee or Echo), rather the sprocket guard piece has a built-in nut that attaches the bar to the power head. It is a thinner bar and you could get some unwanted flex in there as well. Also, this saw uses a 3/8"lp .043 chain, which is not a heavy duty chain and certainly not the best choice for prolonged cutting action like that of milling.

DeWalt has discontinued the 40v MAX lineup, so I'm sure prices reflect the amount of stock left available, i.e. supply and demand.

Comes complete with Chain installed?

Asked by RealDan August 16, 2019

Answers

Yes, chain is attached. You do have to add bar and chain oil, though. (Yes, some people are unaware that a battery chainsaw still requires bar and chain oil.)

What is the Model No. for the Oregon chain that works with my Dewalt 40w 16” chainsaw? I didnt find it on line. Thanks!

Asked by Bob July 10, 2019

Answer

There are two options. The one you will find at most hardware stores will be called an AdvanceCut™ R56. It will come in a blister pack. You can also order the "bulk packaged" chain version online through service dealers, part number 90PX056G. It will come in just a plastic bag. They are the same chain, same pitch, same gauge, and same number of links.

How long does it take to charge the 40v battery?

Asked by BigBoy July 1, 2019

Answers

Not long at all. Like a good hour.

Needed this!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed a chain saw for a while. I wanted to keep the same 40v tools of my other DeWalt Lawn & Garden tools so it was a nobrainer to get this saw. Took a while for it to come in so I haven’t used it yet; but I will!
by Big Kev
Useless for actual work
No more than 5 min of run time on a full battery with hour wait to charge. It would be fine to cut one small limb and put back in the garage. But if you actually need to do any sort of work or cut up an entire log it’s useless. Extremely disappointed for a $360+ tool.

Great chainsaw lightweight and easy to use
I am a 5’0 female and first let me say that I’ve always been intimidated by gas chainsaws. They are heavy and I’ve always worried that they would quickly get out of my control. I bought this one for my husband because I love dewalt. Now, it’s become my chainsaw!! The battery lasts about 2 hours of steady cutting and I can cut through just about any log. It’s super lightweight and such a fun tool to use.

The chainsaw was purchased new in July of 2019. When I accessed the Dewalt website on 11/12/2019, I found out that my model chainsaw is considered obsolete. I'm not sure when Dewalt deemed that this model was obsolete or why but I wasn't notified at the time of purchase and if the model was obsolete at that time, I would not have purchased it or at least not for the full purchase price.

What a workhorse!! Arrived completely assembled and ready to go. Went to work right out of the box. Chain had correct tension and all I had to do was charge the battery a little, put the chain oil in and start cutting . Very powerful saw. One wouldn't know it was battery powered by the excellent way it performs.

I really like not having to worry about gas it not starting. Works great. Only problem was it threw the chain a few times. Could have been operator error.

This chainsaw is very convenient to use in the open woods. Can be strapped to a quad or ATV and used to clear paths. We used it to harvest firewood. It Ran over 2 hours without dying on us. Much easier than a gas chainsaw and the noise level won’t disturb hunters in the area.
