Saw stops while cutting thicker branches (2-3 inches)

Just got the saw for cleaning up stuff around the yard. Seems like whenever I’m cutting anything a little thick (2 inches or so) the saw stops under the increased load and wont start again. Starts right back up if I pop the battery out and reseat it though. Am I missing something, or do I have a problem? Thanks in advance!
Asked by: Wayne

can you upsize blade length?

can you increase blade length to 16 and 18"?
Asked by: shoelessjoe52
I do believe you could buy a bigger bar and chain for it, but I think it would cut down on you're battery life do to it having to work harder to cut bigger things.

14 in. 40-Volt Brushless Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw, 4 Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 139.

I have used Ryobi's brushless 18 volt chainsaw so I went in knowing that the chainsaw could handle the workload but man did this thing exceed my expectations. First off when you pull the trigger you get an almost instant response and the chain is moving at full speed very quickly. Second the saw is still pretty light even with the 4 AH battery and full tank of bar chain oil. Third the self oiling is a very nice feature and does a great job oiling the bar so you have to worries in that area. Also it doesn't seem like it over oils the bar so you might be able to feel the oil tank maybe every other time you replace the battery. I also really like the user features added to this version, the placement of the battery is nice and out of the way but still easy to see when you want to check the battery life. I also like that the chain tighter/looser tool has on board storage so you don't have to worry about losing it. The 14 inch blade is nice and allows you to get most cuts if you are using this for cleaning up things around your yard. I also think the battery has great run time, i used it to make about 50 cuts of wood that was at least 6 inches in diameter with only draining the battery by half. I definitely think this is a great chainsaw for the homeowner. My only negative to the saw is that it was louder than i was expecting but not really that big of a deal.

I bought this product a couple weeks ago because I like cordless products like the Ryobi Hedge Trimmer. I used it to cut up a 70-foot fallen tree in my yard. It was easy to get things going. Just charged the battery and added oil. The product worked very well for the first 3.5 hours when I was just cutting off the branches (small and large), and the battery was still going at that point. Once I started using it to cut the trunk of the tree is when it would only last through one or so cuts. It seems to either overheat and/or just drain the battery. I would have to let things cool down and recharge the battery, and then use it a couple hours later, at which point the cycle repeated. So I like the product for basic cutting and pruning of limbs and limited cutting of trunks, but it does not do well if you are cutting up the trunk of a tree into many pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right Needed a chainsaw for light tree pruning. In this price range, with the 4A 40V battery and charger, there are BIG name options among the gassers. If I planned to use the saw daily, I would have bought one of those. However. . . For what I need a saw for the Ryobi Gen 2 40V is great. No sourcing non-ethanol fuel, mixing and storing, and pulling a cord repeatedly. Cuts fast, clean and quiet. Visible chain/bar oil reservoir level is very good. I do drain the reservoir back into the bottle between uses to avoid seepage. Chain stops moving instantly upon trigger release, I like that. I'm totally comfortable with my wife using this saw. I would not feel that way about a gasser. I have quite a number of Ryobi 18V tools, and a few corded. This is my 5th 40V. Guess you could say Ryobi performance has been satisfactory. There are more I need and want, but, you know. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Ryobi 40v rechargeable chainsaw 14" bar Model RY 40503 - made in China Powered by a 40v rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, this is not my first cordless tool, but it may be the first one that performed decently. See pic w/ my previous electric chainsaw - note power-cord nicks. The 40 volt lithium-ion battery pack comes w/ charger, has "remaining power" indicator and supplemental USB outlet. I tested the new chain on some fresh branches and it cut like a hot knife through butter. Then I pulled up some dried laurel stalks 3" diameter and it still ripped them in two. The bar-oil reservoir is mounted on the front (above the chain) with a thoughtfully included cap-retainer. As delivered, the box included appropriate instruction and warnings (don't be an idiot - chain-blade is sharp), but it did not include even a starter can/bottle of chain oil, so it was back to HD for this separate purchase. Blade cover - a nice addition, not available on my old one. Look for a craigslist ad under Free - my old chainsaw. I'm glad to have my new Ryobi, and willing to risk cordless tools again.

The downside to this is that the battery life is not the best. I know that a higher capacity battery is available, but at the cost of about 1/2 of what I paid for the entire product. It did come ready out of the box without any adjustments needed. Added bar oil and charged the battery and was ready to go. It does take only about 1 hr. to charge, but if you have a large project in mind that can be a lot of waiting. Overall, this is an awesome saw for small jobs around the house, but is definitely not for time consuming jobs.

First I'd like to apologize for posting the wrong photos and information on my impact wrench that I mistakenly posted on the wrong tool. That being said, I have posted this Ryobi 14" chainsaw that comes with a 40 volt battery ( 4Ah ) and a charger. I did make 4 cuts into a 10" round oak limb and it cut like butter and it's well balanced and noisy of course. My old 2 cycle saw bit the dust last year after 10 years of heavy use, I thought I'd go greener and cleaner with this saw, it has a lot of torque, Comes with plastic chain guard but no case. Battery is very large and fits nicely into the side of the saw. Battery has 4 led lights on the fuel gauge when fully charged which gives you an indication of how much power you have , just push the button on the battery and it will tell you the charge left in the battery. The battery had one bar lit up when I received it however it took about and hour to charge up this battery fully. It's one of the biggest batteries out there as far a AH for a chain saw. This saw has no chain brake but once you let go of the trigger the saw ( chain ) stops immediately. Just charge up the battery and fill with chain oil and your ready to go. Please wear hearing protection with this , it is a bit noisy. Anymore questions that one might have please look at the description and details of this saw on the current web page. This saw comes with a manual that explains the operation of this saw. I higly reccommend this saw for the price. Extra chain / back up battery and chain lube can be purchased at Home Depot as well.

I use a gas chainsaw for heavey work but I like using the ease and simplicity of electric saws for the light and medium work. This is a very nice saw for that medium duty. It has a large standard 14 in bar and chain. The battery delivers plenty of force to cut 3-4 inch wide logs for a long time. I have not used on larger trees but think it would perform well. Also the in the winter I have not used the battery to its max though it does seem to last a long time. The saw is a bit long at almost 30 inches but does feel comfortable and balanced in my hand with moderate vibration. It has a handy slot for the chain saw wrench and can easily adjust the tightness of the chain with the screw. Like the nice large bar chain oil reservoir that can easily be visualized so you don't run out while working. It has nice large comfortable handles and is easy to safely activate with the 2-part trigger lever release to activate the saw. I do find it is a bit loud, like a higher pitched whine when at full speed. This may diminished as the chain drive gets oiled and broken in with use. Great saw for a homeowner looking for a quick effective tool for moderate brush and trees
