Charlies Tree Cutting Project

  • November 16, 2019


All past tree cutting projects were accomplished with Stihl Chainsaws, but often the saws are difficult to start. I purchased the Ryobi 40 volt, 14" saw to cut three 80' trees that died from pine beetles. Some of the upper limbs were removed prior to cutting the trunks, to avoid damage to nearby house and carports, with the Ryobi Pole chain saw. A section of fence rails and cattle panel was removed to clear a narrow spot to land the falling trees.
The Ryobi 14" chain saw performed quickly and reliably, but the use of the safety switch was awkward. After felling the trees, all limbs were removed and trunks were cut into 5' sections for handling. The job was completed in 2 hours and required one full charge on the 4AH battery. The Ryobi chain saw performed as well as any of the Stihl saws (gas).
