Does this come with 2 batteries? This question was previously asked and has 5 responses saying "yes, 2 batteries" (even Milwaukee agreed - 2 batteries). I called Home Depot customer service and a very nice fellow researched for a while, then said there is ONLY ONE BATTERY. Okay... which is it?
Asked by: PhaseCommander
This product comes with one battery.

Can this new Milwaukee Chainsaw also use the Milwaukee M18 9.0Ah batteries or is the 12.0Ah required? I'd have to believe that the 12.0 battery takes sometime to recharge; how long? I have two of the 9s for the M18 hammer drill and sawzall I could use while the 12.0 is recharging. If the 9.0s can be used, will they run hot? The 12.0Ah battery is supposed to run cooler. Will the 12.0 Ah battery also work with the Milwaukee M18 drill and sawzall?
Asked by: Peter
Yes it will work, but with a little less power. The 9ah does not have as much available power as either the 6ah HighOutput or 12ah HO batteries. If you always want maximum power, but always have a battery ready, I'd recommend picking a 6ah HO up. While it will "work" with any M18 battery, I would only recommend using the 6 HO, 9 High Demand, or 12 HO. The power draw is too much for the other batteries & they will heat up quite quickly.

M18 FUEL 16 in. 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Battery Brushless Cordless Chainsaw Kit (Tool-Only) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 282.

The chainsaw is easy to use, weight isn't an issue, and most importantly, cuts extremely well, emphasis on extremely. Doesn't drink oil like my Worx corded chainsaw. Scrench is held underneath saw handle for when you need it. The only downside is the relatively short battery life. Mine came with an M18 HD 12.0 battery. Suppose to last several hours. Uh, no. I concede, battery life improved as my cutting technique improved. But even with my best cuts, proper chain tension and deliberately trying to keep cuts short in duration, the longest work time it produced was 90 minutes of interval cutting. Bigger concern with the battery is it's tendency to overheat. Here too, as my technique improved the less frequently overheating occurred. But even keeping cutting duration short, proper tension on the chain, and deliberately putting time between cuts, the battery overheated when it took on a pine tree approx 16" in diameter, that had been felled 3 months earlier.

I am in my 70s, have had 3 rotator cuff surgeries, and my Stihl was too tough on my shoulders following my last surgery. I checked out several electrics, had concerns about the Milwaukee because of everyone else being higher voltage, multiple batteries, etc. Then I saw a video and had to buy. Its performance is everything I expected from the video. The 12.0 Ah battery is important to its performance. My first use was actually using the 12.0 Ah battery on my 1/2 drive impact. With the 12.0 my wrench broke loose 8 rusted 3/4" bolts it wouldn't get with the fully charged 5.0 battery. That done, I switched to trying out my saw and it was awesome. The only problem I had was I had depleted a good portion of the battery on my impact so I couldn't complete my cleanup. I wondered how it would do with the 5.0 batteries. It was not nearly as impressive in speed and of course in battery life but I was able to finish my job - actually it finished me off. Its not going to cut down a forest in one battery charge but my goodness it can cut.

I use a chainsaw intensely a few times a year typically in spring and fall and when we lose a tree in a storm. I have 4 gas saws split 2 each between 2 homes. One of those can usually be coaxed to run. I bought this saw after experience with other Milwaukee M18 tools that are a world apart from the competition. This is not a light saw but it is well made and the 12 Ah battery is a fair part of the weight disadvantage. The saw cuts like a good gas powered saw and the battery lasts about what I would think 2 tanks of gas would last. I bought it with an extra battery and that is typically about all I ever need to do in a day. If I need more than that I can recharge the spent battery and continue to work. I love that when you are ready to cut you pull the trigger and it runs. When trimming out a tree release the trigger and the saw stops between limbs reducing the danger of a serious injury. Best of all it has been idle in the garage for a month and if I want to use it 2 minutes from now I know it is ready to work without fiddling around.

I didn't know what to except when I decided to purchase this chainsaw..I bought it out of curiosity and being able to get a 12 Ah High Demand Battery to use with my other tools sealed the deal for me..It was not a cheap saw to purchase..Now that I have it and used it I am very impressed..It has awesome power and cut thru lumber with ease..It also has long battery life ..I am no Milwaukee salesman saying this either just a guy that works for a living with tools..The whole line of tools I own from Milwaukee are tough powerful and make my work life easier .This saw went way above what I thought it would do when I took a whole tree out with it ...Plus no gas and noise and fumes..You can take the saw anywhere and it works just as good as gas saws without the noise and gas ....Great Product

The Milwaukee, M18 FUEL 16 IN. 18-VOLT LITHIUM-ION BRUSH LESS CORDLESS CHAINSAW, was just as I imagined it would be a tool you can count on. I never had a Milwaukee tool fail me maybe I have just been lucky but it is a brand I trust. However, this is my first battery operated tool made by them and it may be overkill for my needs as a homeowner who trims and prunes the trees around my house. I have yet to have to recharge the battery they claim it will do 150 cuts on one charge and I believe it will but that is more than I will do all season. I cut down a small cherry tree and an Apple tree that was dying and the saw cut like it was going through butter. My one complaint is this saw is heavy close to 15 lb. I have a 14" electric saw that is lightweight but extension cords are not long enough to reach certain trees but it is very light to work with. Since I don't have to work with this chainsaw all day everyday it is manageable but for those who do be aware you will get a workout.

This thing will go thru anything that a homeowner will throw at it. There is a tool for chain removal and adjusting included. The problem is that tool is held in by a strong spring so you need a tool to pry it out. Not very well thought out. I drilled a small hole in the socket end of the tool and put a knotted 3” wire in it. Problem solved.

Do not let the slow chain speed fool you, it has lots of torque, which allows it to be comparable to (and even beat some) gas models. It is also very quiet, the squelch tool is built in to the base, and the 12AH battery has an impressive run time!

Easy to setup, just dont forget to purchase the bar and chain oil because it is not included. The only drawback is the price...other brands offer lower prices, but I think Milwaukee is superior in quality and performance.
