          Very Impressive!
          Had several 8” 20’ branches fall from recent Midwest storms and my gas saws have failed to start yet again. I’m a Ridgid man and have been eyeballing this saw since its release. Even with a 4Ah battery, this saw had no trouble blasting through two good size green, wet groups of limbs. This saw puts the much higher priced Stihl cordless to shame imo. If you’re a Ridgid collector, don’t hesitate to add this tool to your collection and don’t forget to register for that lifetime warranty!

            Impressive!
            Very impressed with power and speed of this product. Used a 6ah battery for about an hour. Cut down a 10" tree no problem.

              Not all Ridgid batteries will fit!
              Purchased this saw without batteries as I also purchased the 12 amp batteries (on sale) hoping to extend my time between battery changes. I love the saw but unfortunately the 12 amp batteries are physically too big. Did I purchase a beta product or what??? As Ridgid claims that the batteries will work with all their tools. I even checked the webpage describing the chainsaw, and the claim is there. Ridgid needs to adjust their position about their batteries or make sure that they will work with all their tools. The only other thing I noticed was that once I removed the chain adjustment tool and went to put it back, it wont go past the rubber designed to keep it in, so the tool storage area is useless.

                12 AH BATTERY NOT FIT IN
                I have a saw and very happy with its value for money performance, especially with a 16 inch Oregon bar But really disappointed to see that the new 12 Ah battery did not fit in the chainsaw, info comes from Home Depot USA. I would be really curious to know what Ridgid has to say about this.

                  Very impressed with this saw! I have cut down small trees and have done a lot of limbing of large trees. The battery lasts a long time. It’s a great saw!

                  Great little saw!!
                  Great little saw! This won't be replacing my Stihl MS290 or Echo CS-670 that I use for my firewood business. But this saw is great for limbing and last a lot longer on a 6ah battery than i thought it would!

                  Lots of nice features
                  It is a cordless chainsaw, which eliminates the hassles of storing gasoline. It has a slip-on chain cover, which fits snugly and stays in place. It has a brake which protects from accidental start. The kit includes everything to start cutting, except for oil. I like how the chain tension wrench is attached to the body, and it has a convenient metal ring for attaching it to the belt while climbing up or down. Overall, it is a well-designed and well-built product, like everything that I ever owned from Ridgid. The kit includes one 6.0 Ah battery, and the battery compartment accepts 8.0 Ah batteries too. I wish the pricing on the Ridgid batteries would be lower.

                  Great Chainsaw with Lots of Good Features
                  This chainsaw has lots of good features. I like that the Hand guard/ Chain brake not only stops the chain, but also cuts power. My old 18 volt chainsaw does not have these features. This chainsaw has a nice balance and weight. I weighed it on my scale and it weighed in at 9.3 pounds with battery. I measured the power consumption of the charger with my inline power meter and I measured 40-42 watts while charging the battery and a mere half a watt after the battery had fully charged. I like the combination wrench that stores securely in the bottom side of the chainsaw. I tried cutting some vine maples and black berry vines that ranged from half inch to one inch and it cut them smoothly without grabbing and pulling the vines toward the saw. Overall, this is a great chainsaw with lots of good features.

                  Hassle-free, low maintenance power tool rugged enough for medium to small cutting jobs
                  I'm hooked on this 12" battery chainsaw for felling small trees, cutting firewood, or pruning overgrown shrubs and cleaning up after a storm. It is so easy to maneuver without wearing yourself out.  No struggle with a pull-cord to start the tool running. Just push a button, and you’re ready to go. It has an automatic chain oiling system that reduces maintenance and keeps the saw running smoothly. The high-efficiency brushless motor requires less maintenance than brushed motors and has a longer life. Really a lot less hassle than a gas chainsaw for your medium and smaller jobs. Uses the same batteries as your other Ridgid tools. Highly recommended.

                  RIDGID 12" Chainsaw is just the thing for Firewood trimming and around the House!
                  This couldn't have come at a better time, as I was just about to purchase a chain saw, when RIDGID through the Home Depot Seeds program was kind enough to offer this chainsaw to try and review, to which I was very pleased to receive. The chainsaw kit comes with the saw, 6.0 mAh battery, and charger. You will have to supply your own bar and chain oil, easily acquired through Home Depot. The saw is very light weight, and it for a right hand orientation only. The right hand is always to be the trigger hand, while the left hand is for the front handle. RIDGID make it very clear NOT to cross arms in orientation because it could cause serious injury. The chainsaw is not too light and not too heavy. The bar allows for a 10" cut. There is a large chainsaw bar oil tank on the left side of the saw. There is a safety break before the handle to protect from kickbacks or bar/chain failure, should it happen. It also serves as a manual chain break. The trigger has a safety switch which must be activated before the trigger can be depressed. This saw is capable to handle many small to medium jobs around the home. I wanted a saw because most firewood delivered to me is 24" long and they don't fit in my firebox, so I have have to cut them down. This will work perfectly for me and increase my wood stocks. The 6.0 amp battery is said to give you plenty of cut time, although having an additional battery handy makes a day of cutting easier. The bar and chain oil container holds 7.3 ounces of oil. You must make sure the bar is lubricated before sawing and that the tension is correct. There is a tool provided to help you with the job. After cutting is done, you must drain the bar oil, because it will leak out. Do not store the battery in the saw after use. Draining the oil will help prevent spills and stains. Full replacement parts are available which include the bar and chain. The saw comes with RIDGID's LIFETIME WARRANTY which requires registration within 90 days of purchase. I'm very happy to have received this saw. It was a timely blessing for the job I need done. It's well built and works with all my other RIDGID tool's batteries. I rate this saw 5*s out of 5. For the light duty work I need to do, it is perfect. Thank you RIDGID for allowing me to try your product. Thank you Home Depot Seeds for offering this item to me.
