Asked by Bill May 26, 2020

Answer

Thank you for your question. The batteries will all depend on what you are cutting. Chain saw run time varies between hard woods and soft woods and size of material being cut. For many standard clean up jobs, 5.0 Ah batteries provide more than enough run time. The batteries will need to be recharged when one runs out, so if you are using different sized batteries the saw will operate until the smaller one needs a charge.

It easily meets my light duty needs. Bought this instead of a gas chainsaw to avoid the hassle of gas-oil mixture, and annual tune ups. It cuts 3-4" branches very fast. Only downside is that the chain oilier uses a lot of oil almost to the point of leaking, so the bar is oily. Still glad that I got this saw. Bought the package with 2 extra batteries, and by the time the batteries in the saw need replacing, the batteries in the charger are recharged. Recommend buying the same package.

I was skeptical about buying a cordless chainsaw. Not anymore. The saw has plenty of power and long lasting, quick charging batteries. I got four batteries with the package I bought. I would recommend getting four. A great product!
