      Q:Does this saw have variable speed control
      by|Jan 10, 2023
      2 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Sure it does, do not ALL chainsaws have this feature? But WHY would you want that feature?  The faster you run the chain the better it cuts, normally.. . THAT is one of the main reasons for the invention of the Brushless motors, right? . . . There is really no comparison to the brushless and chainsaws with brushes.  Not only for longevity, but mainly for smooth, clean and fast cutting of the wood.  I am 81 years old and very slow now, myself; but I sure appreciate a fast, smooth cutting saw. . . and I have had many, many saws through the years. . . as a matter of fact, I have about 9 or 10 chainsaws right now; most of them are RYOBI brand.  And I have gotten rid of several gas chainsaws and brush type chainsaws over the past few years.  I just sent back two mini saws over the past month; they were junk.  Nothing is perfect, but some of the stuff out there is better and much better than others. . . And I find that you kind of get what you pay for; maybe! . . Hope this helps you and others. . . Thanks.

                Love it
                Unboxed and immediately charged the 5AH battery which took less than an hour. Grabbed my 4AH battery as well that i use for my string trimmer. Filled up with bar oil. The cap does need to be tight to help prevent leakage that everyone complains about. It's a chainsaw! They will get dirty with oil and grime. Yall need to get over it. I have an extremely large oak tree trunk that needed to be cut in 18" segments. The trunk measures 30" to 36" diameter and 22' long. The 5Ah battery was able to get through one side cut before hitting the thermal cut-off. Battery got too hot. Jumped to the other side of the long with the 4Ah battery. 1 full cut both sides complete. The 4Ah battery did struggle a bit but got through it. That battery overheated as well. Not upset about it. Two hot batteries and now im waiting for them to cool. Threw em in the freezer for 10 min and i was back in business. The 5Ah battery is now showing 3 bars and the 4Ah battery has 2. Batteries are warm so i made another cut on the massive log. Saw cuts and powers through with ease on the 5Ah. The 4Ah doesn't drive the chain as fast. Smaller battery. So the minimum AH battery needs to be 5Ah. Im going to buy the 6Ah battery soon. I do know the saw isnt designed to cut logs near 3' foot diameter but why not try right? I was burying the bar in the trunk too. I was able to completely cut up that huge trunk. I was impressed really. Pop in a battery and fill with oil and your cutting! That fast and easy. I did cut normal 16" diameter logs and was able to get a good 10 cuts in before the 5Ah battery hit the thermal cutoff. That was ok because i have an extra battery. Cut some more. Too be honest, the cordless battery saw lasts about as long as i want to before i want to stack wood and keep my work area tiddy. Take a break! Not a bad deal here. I have over 2 acres and i forecast that this saw will treat me well. Hope this review helps yall.

                Great saw but....
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The saw worked great,however, all 3 saws (after exchanging each) leaked lube oil badly if left filled overnight. I will purchase again when the issue is resolved.

                Response from RyobiNov 30, 2022
                Hello, Altadutch - We are disappointed to learn that you were not pleased with this saw! Given the nature of chainsaws, it is normal for oil to seep from the saw when not in use. To prevent seepage, empty the oil tank after each use. When storing the unit for a long period of time (three months or longer) be sure the chain is lightly lubricated; this will prevent rust on the chain and bar sprocket. We hope this helps! And if you'd like to discuss your experience further, then please feel free to email us anytime at Reviews@RYOBItools.com.
                  Lightweight, powerful, leaks oil
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My Ryobi tools get more useful every time I add another battery. A single battery for this chainsaw is will cut a nice amount of wood, but when I use all my batteries, this saw becomes an beast! At a minimum there should have been a warning tag on the oil reservoir to warn the user that it is designed to leak oil even when not in use. I thought the cap was leaking. Fortunately it didn't dump oil on my driveway.

                    Easy to use.
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm tired of pulling stings and mixing gas. We starting going towards cordless outdoor tools about a year ago. Been very satified with the Ryobi brand as far as other power tools, so naturally Ryobi was highy considered when making my purchase for a new chainsaw. This chainsaw is awesome cuts like butter and battery last. had a 50 ft tree go down at the neighbors in the past storm. got through 80% of it before having to charge the battery. Was very impressed with the performance.

                      Absolutely no hesitation to recommend!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I can’t say enough about how pleased I am with this chainsaw. I’ve been using gas chainsaws for over 40 years and this little gem is a treat to use. No more fiddling with gas, adjusting carburetor and yanking my arm off trying to start it,...now it’s just push a button and go...and it's so much more quiet! I decided on the 18inch and it has as much or more power than my 50cc gas one, which has now died. If only I’d known how pain free chainsawing could be, I would have made the switch much sooner. From the images you can see that I cut down a 17 inch tree, with no hesitation from the saw...what a pleasure. I would highly recommend this saw to anyone that is looking for a yard maintenance style chain saw...we have a 2.5 acre forested property. The fact that my 6Ah battery from my Ryobi lawnmower fits as well, just added to the easy decision to purchase this saw. I must say that I am quite impressed by Ryobi cordless products. Absolutely no hesitation to recommend this chainsaw!

                        Lots of power, instant-on, and no gas/oil
                        I bought this after a huge red oak limb landed in our yard. It easily cut it up into manageable pieces and had 3/4 charge left on the battery. It's light enough and the chain-adjustment is quick and easy with the on-board tool. This will be nice to have on hand for future emergencies. Don't forget the bar/chain oil!

                          Perfect for a home owner but not a firewood saw
                          I have cut a lot of wood with it and also own 3 gas saws. This is an impressive saw but not ready to replace gas saws for firewood (and not referring to the run time). The narrow kerf chain allows this to cut efficiently but keeps stretching a LOT under heavy work and sometimes it jumps off and gets bent quite a bit (being so thin) and that could be the end of it unless you work on it to restore. You could possibly replace bar/chain but at a power loss. I hope the next version is more powerful.

                            Great tool, exceeded my expectations
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted a battery operated chainsaw so I can move around the yard with the tractor and clear trees with ease, compared to stopping and having to recrank the gas one everytime.

                              I'll never use gas again
                              Another great Ryobi tool!! I made one mistake, out of the box, I did not tighten the chain bar bolts before use and the chain came off the bar, ruining the chain. I ordered new chains, set the tensioner and tightened the bar bolts and now all is good. This saw is amazing! The battery has plenty of power to work for about 45 minutes to an hour (see photo). I purchased an extra battery. So, do yourself a favor: 1. Read the manual 2. Verify that all bolts are tight before using

                                The little engine that could!!!
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live in a predominately Forestry community so i was laughed at when i bought this electric chain saw. Even after i explained that i need a saw that works when i need it to. my gas one (only a year old) would not start half the time. so now i carry the electric one in the truck at all times. Does not leak gas or oil on the seat, does not smell, starts and runs every time i need it. I was still laughed at until i came home with my chopping block. Nobody would believe i got it with the electric saw but i did and all in one go. this saw is a little power house.
