Q:Is this Ryobi chainsaw single speed or variable? (either the 14" or 16")
by|Jan 15, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello, Dave - Neither this 16" 40V chainsaw nor the 14" 40V chainsaw has a variable speed trigger. When starting the chainsaw, squeeze the switch trigger and allow the chainsaw to get up to full speed before entering the cut. We hope this helps! If you need further support, then call or text us at 1.800.525.2579, Monday - Friday from 9 am to 5 pm (EST), or through email when you visit us at https://www.ryobitools.com/support/contact.

        Q:Ryobi has authorized to replace my 16 chainsaw because it was less than two years old when it broke. So far it has taken them over seven weeks to replace my saw. Why is this?

        A:  Take it to your local Home Depot for and exchange or store credit. With receipt it would be easy, without a receipt you'll receive store credit.

            Chain won’t stay on.
            I was so excited to get this. I used it 4 times. Each time I drove almost 2 hours each way to my camp for nothing. I could not get this chain to stay on longer than 3-5 mins. No matter how many times I take it apart clean it and adjust the screw. Most the time it falls off even before I can use it. Never had that issue with my gas stihl. Leaks oil bad too and mines stored in My house. Less than hour used. I wasted $600 on this machine I would stay away if reliability matters. It cut pretty decent but I’m definitely going back to gas. I wish I had my receipt.

              Best Chainsaw ever!!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The best chainsaw I have ever bought. I used it to cut a couple of trees down from my front yard and very easy to used and to turn on.

                Did not last
                Great saw until the warranty expired, causing the motor to immediately die. You get one star for the nice green color.

                  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.

                        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.
