Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power Beyond Expectations! I've used this brushless chain saw a half dozen times since purchasing it last month. It's power is beyond my expectations. This thing rocks! It's battery-powered which made me think I'd get a good powerful hour of work done with it. Not the case at all!! I had four strong hours of cutting. I cut four twelve inch diameter and twenty-feet tall trees into pieces that fit into my City and County-issued green waste bin. I'm not joking. This chain saw will do what you need it to do... and will for a long time. You'll tire out before it will. It's one of the best products I've purchased in a long time. Extremely satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh my goodness we love Ryobi 40v tools Our neighbors recommended these Ryobi combo 40V tools. I run around blowing out garage and back porch constantly. We have two year old twins and life is hectic. We live of huge treed property and now have exchangeable 40volt blower, saw, and edger. If ryobi would now make a 40volt power mop, I’d be the happiest woman on the planet. Bought a battery operated saw (Black and deckard) years ago that was junk. Ryobi has blown me away. These interchangeable battery operated power tools are over the top amazing. Thank you, Ryobi. Now I’ll be patient, but can you please develope a power mop tile cleaning tool for Saltillo tile. We own blower, saw, and edger. My husband and I love them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the weekend medium to small jobs I have a 9 acre piece of land that needs limbs trimmed and small trees taken down. I was looking for a non-gasoline model, so I wouldn't have the problems with it starting and other maintenance issues. The 14" battery powered Ryobi met my specifications, exactly. I found that it had the power to cut 12" oak limbs with ease. The battery gave my about an hours cutting time (which was all I wanted). I count as a safety feature the fact that when you release the trigger, the motor stops, which means the chain stops as well. I had found that, with a traditional gas model, sometimes the clutch would keep the chain moving, even when the saw was idling - not safe. This saw stops! The chain oil "window" is also handy for knowing when more oil is needed. Pictured is the wood cut in just a few hours time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy and works great Needed a chain saw to help clear some brush and small trees for a trail. Didnt want to deal with mixing gas. I have other ryobi 40v garden tools so decided to try this. It works great, has the power to cut through thick trees but is light and easy to handle for cutting off braches and get to awkward positions. Easy to start way better than pull starting a gas chainsaw. Plus the the chain slows down fast after you let off. This is a great festure for cutting down small trees then putting the saw down to drag them out of the way without having to leave a chainsaw running. Battery lasts about an hour depending on how much cutting you do, perfect for small jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST LIKE GAS POWER BUT A LOT QUIETER I purchase it because it was on sale and I already had other 40 volt tools. I have the original blue 18 volt that is in excellent condition. I am still using it for small trimming but the 40 volt for larger jobs. Really has the power. once trimming trees by road side, Sheriff was sitting on road side watching traffic and saw tree limbs fall but heard no noise, came over and saw me cutting , asked me and I told him the owner wanted trees trimmed and I was pulling them back to save them for later pick up. He was amazed how fast I cut tree limbs and very quiet. he went back to traffic watching and I continued to trim threes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Good Saw Good little Chainsaw for back yards and small estates (an acre or so). Simple, straight-forward, lightweight, low maintenance (no winterizing), quiet, inexpensive, and non-intimidating. The onboard Tool and Blade-Guard are nice inclusions, but like all Chainsaws, this one seeps a little oil, so a custom-molded Case would've been better -- and a Chain-Brake would've been nice as well. Steel Bumper Spikes would be another improvement, as those molded-in plastic 'toothpicks' are almost useless. Also, there's a small delay (a half-second or more) between the time that I pull the trigger (or release it), and when the Motor actually responds, and I've noticed this with all of the Ryobi 40v Tools that I've tried (Self-Propelled Mower, String Trimmer, Chainsaw, and Pole Saw). Not a huge deal but slightly annoying, and kind of a safety issue -- if you could tighten it up, that'd be great. The only other 2 suggestions I can think of would be 1), an onboard fuel gauge (without having to remember the Battery, stop sawing, maneuver around to the Battery, then push a button), and one that's more accurate (showing the actual percentage of remaining power); and 2), a higher torque Motor -- but then both can be said of all cordless Chainsaws -- and all the other Ryobi 40v Tools for that matter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than I expected I bought this yesterday after giving up on trying to start a gas powered saw. This saw easily cut down two small trees (max dia about 5") in about 10 minutes and used about 40% of a fully charged battery. Light weight, well designed and best of all, easy to start! I had already bought the Ryobi weed eater to replace another non-start gasoline device. Electric is the way to go and the Ryobi tools are doing the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising battery power! I purchased a battery powered Ryobi blower a year or so and was so impressed with it that when I saw the double tool deal on the 40 volt trimmer and chainsaw I purchased it, I couldn't wait to use the chainsaw! I had a tree that at the trunk was about 20 inches in diameter and this 14" chainsaw cut it like butter! Obviously I couldn't cut through it in one cut I had to do half and then do the other side and down it came! Since then I have been telling all my friends about Ryobi battery powered products and I myself will be purchasing more of your products, thank You again for a high guality product! Here's a picture.
