I added the Greenworks rechargeable chainsaw to my Greenworks stable and now I dont have to fight with a pull starter cable or gas/oil mix ever again. It can cut up several trees on one charge and if you get another battery you can keep on cutting.
I have owned several high-end gas chainsaws and trimmers throughout the years. I was always impressed with the power. But overtime they would all breakdown, usually involving the small engine. I decided to make the switch to Greenworks. I thought I would be giving up power when giving up gas. Boy was I wrong! My last purchase was a chainsaw to trim and cut down trees. I was really skeptical, but again, Greenworks knocked it out of the park! I easily went through 10-12” logs. My neighbors kept commenting on how quiet, but efficient the chainsaw was. A few even jumped in to help me with the work.
Let me tell you something, a product is good when even your neighbors are willing to do your work for you as long as they get to use your tools!
This chainsaw is amazing! We have a gas powered 20" chainsaw as well and this is so much easier to use. We recently had a tree sized branch fall down on our property and this chainsaw cut right through it like butter.
Torque is amazing, sound is quieter, startup a push of a button, maintenance so much easier. Chain brake more immediate. Once you realize the power of the torque and adjust, this is across the board much safer than gas-powered chainsaws. It took me seven hours to prune and clean up a long-neglected crabapple. The work was so much easier when using this chainsaw (only on the ground) that I finished with much less fatigue. Never say never, but I will never use a gas-powered chainsaw again. Battery life appears to be more than sufficient for my needs, I have one 60W 4AH for both my lawnmower and chainsaw, was going to get a backup 2AH, but have decided to wait until and if it becomes an issue.
I Ordered this saw in July 2020. My Old gas died a while ago though I hadn't really needed one until then. Made short work of a few mesquite branches and sandpaper trees in to thin out and cut down. Not sure what the run time would be with the 4.0AH battery it came with. Also bought this for the battery so I would have a second battery for the mower. Now I'm looking a climbers saw, sometimes a ladder won't get me where I need to be to cut a branch and the compact size of a those saws is perfect which was my goto saw when doing most cuts.
Cons: No manual bar/cahin oil button/lever
No Storage case (does have a bar/chain cover)
No bonus bar/chain oil included (A half a pint would have been nice)
Delivery time was great. Price is right. Saw is easy to use right out of the box. Just add oil and check chain tension and you’re ready to go. Lightweight, quiet, and well balanced. Battery charges fast and has good life.
We live in South Louisiana and the 2020 Hurricane season was not nice at all to us.
After Hurricane Delta passed in our area, we had numerous trees down in our and friends yards. We knew we had to purchase a chainsaw and make the most out of the situation and set our selves up with plenty of firewood from these trees for the winter. We’ve purchased Greenworks products in the past and have never been disappointed. This chainsaw was no different! Helped us get the job done with ease! Lightweight and decent battery life.
Thank you so much for making your products! We are Greenworks customers for life!
Love from Louisiana
