Decided to try electric and I’m a believer now!
Since I have a lot of other Ryobi tools, I decided to try a Ryobi. I chose the 16 in blade, with the chain brake ,40v, 4.0 battery. I had read reviews of it and they seemed mostly good. I bought the saw because I’ve had trees fall on my property, and want to be able to clear a tree immediately if it blocks my driveway. I thought it was good! if you want to go cut a truckload of wood, you would definitely need more than one battery. If you had the extra batteries, or the more powerful one, I know I would choose it. It’s so much lighter and so so much quieter than my gas saws.

    It saws well
    I bought this 16” saw because I already have 2 of the batteries so I just had to buy the tool. I bought because trees keep falling on my fence. If you are debating, get the 40v battery type. I am a woman and was hoping this would be easy for me to use but I have to admit it’s pretty heavy and the vibration tired my arms out bad after 2 cuts. My husband cut up the rest of the tree. It only took 1.5 batteries to finish the job. It leaks oil no matter how you set it which is annoying

      Happy with the switch to a battery one
      I live on over 6 acres, mostly fir trees. I've been cutting up downed limbs or trees from storms. I've been using 16" chain saws for over 20 years and decided to try a battery one. The 16" Ryobi with the 4Ah battery has as much cutting power and torque as the gas ones without the noise and gas mixing. No more leaving it running or restarting between cuts. The battery out lasts me, but I'm 75. It will outlast a tank from gas one. If you need more cutting time, buy another battery instead of more gas. It does weigh a little more than a same size gas one, but that's not a problem, at least for me.

      Powerful and easy to start!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This chainsaw has plenty of muscle to handle tough jobs. With its 40WA battery, it compares perfectly well to using a gas-powered unit, but without the typical hassle of having to prime and pull the rope several times to start it, which is very frustrating with gas ones. Just click the battery on, and you’re ready to go! This a well-designed tool, with adjustable auto-oiling for the chain as well. My only advise is to get a 2nd battery in order to have spare power for longer-lasting jobs.

      Love, love, love, the single battery multi-tool
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love, love, love, the single battery multi-tool platform your equipment has. Huge fan of battery operated versus gasoline operated.

        Great product! Battery last long time but get a higher amperage to make it perfect.

        Powerful Tool
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After borrowing a plug-in electric chainsaw for storm cleanup, I decided to buy my own saw for future use. I knew I didn't want the maintenance of gas, so I decided on battery electric. A tree fell across a driveway in an area where I didn't have access to power. I was surprised that the battery was able to last to remove the entire tree from the driveway. The chainsaw had more than enough power and battery life for this job and any others I may encounter in the future.

          Better than expected!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have received it 2 days ago and went to work right away. The battery lasted for a long time; I actually stopped working before the battery was dead. It's quiet, easy to operate, doesn't smell like gas powered ones. She cut through butter. I am very pleased.

            Love it
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this almost a month ago after purchasing my house and it has been very easy to use for someone that is not experienced at all in power tools. Have been able to use a lot lately.
