Does this saw has a chain brake? If not, why doesn't Ryobi care about operator safety?
Asked by: DB
You need to understand DC Motors. It is called dynamic braking. A Gasoline motor needs the brake a DC Motor does not. I service and rebuild DC Motor Systems.

How long does the battery last ?

Asked by: Gee
The battery lasts about 20 min on 3 and 4 inch logs. Unfortunately they can only be charged 3 or 4 times before they no longer take a charge. I just used up my forth one. I will be getting a different brand tomorrow.

Does this come with oil? My box did not have any oil included but did have an empty bag for some reason. If it does not come with oil, which oil should I use?
Asked by: peyeeeehawwww6969
Hi, pey- Thanks for the question. Bar and Chain oil is not included, but any kind of bar and chain oil will work great. We do recommend emptying any residual oil after you're done using it- this will help reduce seeping during storage. We hope this helps!

14 in. 40-Volt Brushless Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw, 4 Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 712.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Cuts through as well as a gas powere Some time ago I borrowed a friends gas chain saw to do some minor trimming. After operating it for about five minutes I knew I shouldn’t be using it at all. Ended up hiring a landscaper to finish the job. Recently a storm blew down a large tree limb. Didn’t want to pay a contractor again. The Ryobi 14” inch 40V unit seemed like a good deal and more cost effective then a contractor. Was amazed at how easy it was to use. A lot more quieter than a gas unit. Didn’t seem like I even needed to use hearing protection. Following the basic operating instructions, I felt way more confident in using it then any gas powered saw. It cut through the fallen branch which was about 10” inches thick in some parts like it was butter. Only down side is that Ryobi doesn’t seem to sell too much in products that are tool only for the 40 V Li-Ion battery. Would like to see more products come to Market with having to buy another battery and charger. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Probably the best size bar in its class. The only improvement I'd make to it would be to use tool-less adjusting knobs (like a competing maker) rather than standard nuts for the bar adjustment. That being said, the on-board wrench makes the adjustment and cleaning easy, and probably allows a tighter fit. So maybe I wouldn't change it after all. :-) If you have other 40-volt Ryobi tools and need a chainsaw, this is a no-brainer. It's really not that much more money than another battery, especially if you catch it on sale. Easily plows through the jobs of a home owner/weekend warrior without a hiccup. If you're a lumberjack or need to cut cord after cord of firewood, a gas saw is still probably the better choice for speed and recharge/refuel time. An electric chainsaw just makes sense. They're so much easier to use than gas for the normal property owner. See my YouTube review at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZnsoNBgpSw

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw for Homeowners An electric chainsaw just makes sense. They're so much easier to use than gas for the normal property owner. I had a different brand that I really liked, but wanted to be able to share batteries with my other Ryobi tools. So I got this one. It cuts extremely well (as most saws will when their chains are sharp - so keep it sharp). Light enough to be maneuvered easily. Battery won't last forever, but will do quite a bit of work before it needs recharging. I had a big pile of branches to deal with cleaning up before the first battery was done. I might suggest tool-less adjusting knobs (like my previous saw) rather than standard nuts for the bar adjustment and clean up. However, the on-board wrench makes for tight connections and quick adjustments wherever I happen to be. If you have other 40-volt Ryobi tools and need a chainsaw, this is a no-brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts like butter! I bought this about a month ago and use it around the house and when camping to cut firewood. I have purchased a chainsaw from one of your competitors and it was nothing but problems. I purchased and returned 3 different saws and each had its issues. I was determined to make a battery operated saw work and found this one at Home Depot. It had all of the features that I was looking for; a 14 inch bar, a 40 volt battery and a brushless design so that there were no sparks for cutting wood in the forest. It works like a charm. The only issue that I have had is with bar oil leaking if you don't drain the reservoir. I knew that this would probably be an iissue as all of the others that I have purchased or reviewed have had this issue. Not a biig deal, you just need to remember to drain it after each use. This is better than one of the competitors saw that had an auto oiler that did not work out of the box. I would definitly purchase this saw again as there have been no issues and it cuts wood like butter. [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.

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.

Trimmer, blower, tiller and weed wacker. Always wanted to get the chainsaw. I needed another battery as one of my died over the winter. The battery alone is about $100 so spending another $70 for the chainsaw was a good deal. Should have purchased this years ago. So easy to use. Just remember to buy the bar and chain oil. This comes fully assembled. You will need to fully charge the 40 volt battery prior to use. Works like a champ. No issues cutting through 8" diameter branches that fell in my yard. Not so loud like a gas chainsaw but always suggest to wear ear and eye protection. Highly recommend this chainsaw. Works as advertised with "gas like power."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a real chain saw! Love it! I bought my first 40 volt weed wacker last year, have multiple attachments, hedge trimmer, pole saw, tiller, etc. My latest acquisition is this 2nd generation Brushless Chain Saw. This is not my first or only chain saw. I have burned out several cheap electric corded saws, tired of seasonal fuel problems with my 2 cycle saws. So far this saw has performed as well as any of the multiple gas saws I have had for decades. I recently fell, and bucked a 8" diameter Oak, no problem. Impressively high chain speed, faster then most corded electrics. Durability, has yet to be determined, concerned about the possible fragility of the batteries ( I have 3 and treat them like eggs). I still have 3 Gas Saws a 16", 24", and a 32", this has become my, quick, go to, small saw. Keep it properly sharpened and oiled, you'll love it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
