Questions & Answers

What kind of oil do I use for this chain saw? Not to lubricate the chain, but in the reservoir?

What kind of oil do I use for this chain saw? Not to lubricate the chain, but in the reservoir?
Asked by: Stacy
Hi, Stacy- as a cordless model, this saw only requires bar and chain oil, which goes in the reservoir. We hope this helps!

Which battery comes with this chainsaw - the High Capacity or the Slim Line?

Asked by: DoubleL
I purchased this saw on 4/20/19 and paid $199.00 but it came with the 4 Amp Hr. battery. You have to be careful to look at the box on any given day. I've seen them on the shelf with 2.6 Amp versions as well.

14 in. 40-Volt Brushless Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw 1.5 Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1960.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently purchased this chainsaw to cut up small trees. I am retired and decided to clear a vac... I recently purchased this chainsaw to cut up small trees. I am retired and decided to clear a vacant lot adjacent to my yard.. I cut down approximately 50+ trees with a bow saw. Now I needed to cut them up. I have quit buying tools and equipment that are gas powered and have pull ropes after 2 rotator cuff repairs. I wanted something light but safe. After shopping around I chose the Ryobi. I was skeptical about battery life and performance. Since it was reasonably priced I took a chance. I am amazed with the performance. I am getting approximately one hour battery life using continuously. The battery also recharges very fast. What surprise me most is the ease of cutting through the trees. Although very light, I always feel in total control and safe. This is the first chain saw I had ever used. I have started using it to cut down trees as well. Sure beats the heck out of a bow saw. I would highly recommend this product to anyone for light and medium cutting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great within its limits I wanted a saw for clean up & light pruning. I have a Stihl that I use for big jobs, but its a pain to gas up everytime I have light clean up to do, I don't store it gased up. I tried the 18 volt 10 incher, that was worse than useless. Decided to give this one a try & was pleasantly suprised by how it cut. Having said that the claim that it has the power of a gas saw is a streatch. Not even close to my stihl. I would not attempt to take down a tree larger than 10 inches, I think it would be dangerious. I just finished bucking 6 8ft. long branches ranging from 3 to 8 in. in dia. Great for doing that type of work. The only negitive I have is it comes with the compact battery. For the price I think the high output battery should be included. Fortunately I have one that came with the string trimmer. To sum up, if you are looking to put up a winters worth of wood this is not what you want. If you do clean up & maybe a few cords for the fire place this is a good option, alibet a bit pricy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the Price I bought this saw mainly so I would not have to deal with the pain of gas. Glad I did. I cannot attest to the durability of it as I have only had one session with it. I use it to cut green wood that I get for turning. The first only thing I cut was some Bradford Pear I got from my neighbor. It sliced through it like butter. It is a LOT quieter than a gas saw. I made 20 - 30 cuts through 8 to 10 inch logs and didn't have any issues at all when I was done I checked the battery and a fresh battery 4Ah battery was only down one bar. I wouldn't use it to take down trees, but if you read the manual you will see its not meant for that. The only thing I didn't like about it was the little dinky charger that came with it. Good thing the other charges work for it. I would highly recommend this say to someone who is doing moderate occasional cutting. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

If I had ordered it from anyone else, I would have assumed that it was a cheap knockoff and asked someone to investigate. Now there's no tree in my yard. It wasn't large - 5-6" trunk, and a bit taller than my house. It's gone, and a single charge on a 2.6AH battery took care of cutting it down and a great deal of debranching and preparing it for pickup. Battery swap finished the rest. Smooth operation - I cut into knots to see if it would kick, but it remained easily controllable. After I bundled branches for pickup, it happily trimmed them down to the 4' lengths required by the trash collectors. It's not quiet enough to cut down trees at 3 am, however it is surprisingly quiet. It's quieter than the 10" pole saw, and 3 houses down someone was using a gas powered leaf blower and I could hear him over the saw.

When I first used it, I was delighted. However, this product is short-lived. Toward the end of the first summer it seemed it wasn't cutting well and the chain kept coming off. I know that chains stretch so I tightened it. Still didn't cut well so I replaced the chain. Even with a new chain, you spend more time playing with the chain than cutting anything. If you make the chain tight it won't move. If you loosen just a little bit, it falls off all the time and so you spend more time with dirty hands than cutting branches. I think the constant problem with the chain is related in someway to the design. Essentially it lasted one season. The battery feature is the good news, but the durability of the product just isn't there. Short term use product. There are probably more durable battery chainsaws than this.

I have used it several times since purchase and it does a great job for an electric saw. The only problem is that this battery charge just does not last very long. So I had to do the work in such a way that I had other things to do while it was recharging. And it does take a while to recharge. I looked up the cost of placement battery and it is $99.00. That seems like a lot to spend to operate a saw that cost about $170.00. But I will keep an eye on it and if the battery prices drop at some point I will purchase a backup. The battery is the only thing keeping me from giving this a five star rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cutting power for battery chain saw I purchased the similar model kit (with battery & charger). Very impressive cutting power but auto oiler died after 2 uses (30 minutes). Replaced with this model and bought heavier duty battery. Comes pre-assembled so just charge battery, add oil, and ready to go. Very easy to use and handle. The cutting power didn't seem as strong as the other, felt like chain was somewhat dull - possibly slightly defective chain. Still cut well - much better than expected - handled some fairly large trees. Battery power is great - 45-60 minutes (Ryobi said time increases with usage). Manual warns - battery goes from full to 0 without warning so a few times was in the middle of a large cut when battery died. Overall impressive Saw - fairly lightweight, easy to use, strong cutting power. Great for smaller jobs when I don't want to use my Husqvarna 16" and deal with getting fresh gas, mixing with oil, trying to start, loud noise, etc. Can recommend this Chain Saw.

Just purchased, adding to other Ryobi 40-Volt tools I already own. Easy to set up, fill w/ oil, and insert/extract battery. Excellent power when cutting. I agree with the "gas like" power statement as far as when it's working. Cut this past weekend showed both strengths and weaknesses. Saw was technically too short for size of tree so I made a two part prep-cut. Saw cut through the tree with ease. Saw was quiet, easy to control. I appreciate it includes a tool to adjust chain tension built into handle. Thank you, Ryobi! Downside, these batteries do NOT like the heat. Temp hit over 100 F and the batteries wouldn't last through 1/2 their charge. I rotated through 3 batteries (2 2Ah already own, 1 1.5Ah that came with it) having to cool them inside just to finish what should have been 3-4 quick cuts, significantly increased cut time. I don't regret the purchase, but hope battery cooling will be taking into consideration with future designs.
