Durianwool, thank you for your interest in the RYOBI 10 in. 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Pole Saw, 2.0 Ah Battery and Charger Included. This model is part of the Expand - It line. The RY40560 in not. They do have the same reach. The later model has a shorter pole with an extension. Performance is not affected negatively in either case.

How long does the battery last?

Asked by DK March 11, 2021
1
Answer

DK, thank you for your interest in the RYOBI 10 in. 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Pole Saw, 2.0 Ah Battery and Charger Included. The length of time that a battery lasts depends on many things. Temperature and the load the tool is under are the two main factors that will cause the battery to last longer. Less load means longer lasting. you should get between 15 and 45 minutes of run time depending on what you are doing. Thank you for asking, If you have further questions and would like to speak with a RYOBI Customer Experience Professional, please call, 1-800-525-2579 M-F from 9am-6pm EST. Hope this helps! - Vini

I don't know if it's a "carrying case," but mine came with a hard plastic cover to go over the chain. Also, mine doesn't leak oil that much.

Great cordless pole saw
Purchased to trim tree limbs on property, especially some crepe myrtles that had never been pruned before we moved in. Chain saw performed great throughout the entire process of trimming back all 5 trees, plus some other trees as well. Battery life is also good, but I have a 2nd battery from my Ryobi hedge trimmers, so no real down time at all. Heads up: 1) as described in the operator's manual, the chain IS going to stretch out, especially over the first 20-30 minutes of use. I kept a small, thin flat-head screwdriver handy to clean out the saw dust from the hex-opening for tightening the chain - otherwise it is difficult to insert the small end of the hex-wrench into the opening (see included pic). Of course don't forget to loosen up the chain cover screw a little bit before tightening the chain. 2) also make sure to keep oil in the tank and sharpen up the chain when it's needed. There are 2 links on the chain that are facing in the same direction, so if you start with them, it's easy to tell when you've finished sharpening the chain.

Used this Pole Saw on our tree in our front yard cutting branches 6 inches in diameters or better with no problem. It took only 2 charges to cut what we wanted off the tree but took us 3 days two clean up the branches. Although this unit is a Pole Saw there are many attachments that can be added to the power unit for example: ( Rotor Tiller, Weed Wacker ) and more.

Pole Saw Flaw
First I love Ryobi stuff but DO not buy this expand it type of pole saw. Ryobi make a pole saw that screws together that works fantastic but this one is the expand it type and the button will not keep the saw head from twisting while cutting no matter how tight you turn the clamp!! This saw will make you cuss in three languages! As you can see in the picture below I finally pop riveted it together to permanently attach it just so I could use it. See picture below.

very light duty
After about four uses, the chain cover bolt snapped and the adjuster bent and jambed. This was on a one inch branch. Very disappinted in this. Since i can not currently return it, I’ll have to replace it just to finish my job. I’ll be returning ALL my Ryobi 40 volt tools. Can’t depend on these even for a homeowner

It worked! Cutting very hard and dried evergreen limbs overhead. The battery and motor is in the handle near you, so you are not lifting the motor overhead like in the other designs. Auto oilier is working great to make the chain live longer. Battery charge is outlasting the home owner endurance.

Pole Saw
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this saw to keep up with the minor trimming around the yard. I have a 16” chainsaw, hand trimmers and loopers but this really reduces all effort for the small stuff. Battery last long enough for most jobs and tackles most small branches without difficulty. Great addition to my collection of tools. The only thing you need to have on hand is bar and chain oil, DO NOT run the saw without it.

This little saw never disappoints me. I have cut dozens of huge (7-10 inch) limbs and thousands of smaller limbs (3-7 inch). I am constantly in awe of how well this little chain just eats through wood in no time flat.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This tool is definitely a must have for those who has trees. I’ve trimmed my tree in the back with no problem, I love how it automatically feeds oil on the blade during the use. Easily my number 1 tool in the garage.

Very innovative aspects. The unit leaks chain oil constantly when not in use. Very low starting torque, must get it running fast prior to engaging even a 1/2" pine bough.
