The black and decker 20v chainsaw is a great saw around the garden having owned a 36v version of the same saw a few years and being highly impressed by it. I can highly recommend this saw. It cuts through wood like butter and got through an impressive amount of work. The only thing I would ask is why they cut it down to 20v . I would have thought more volts = more power.
I wouldn’t let that put you off. It has over 1000 reviews on Amazon giving it an average of 4.2 stars out of 5. I would recommend getting the 3AH battery to have some extra time cutting. It was a very good saw for a very good price.
The work cordless chainsaws are light weight and easy to maneuver & nothing beats the electronic batteries! Each battery lasts around 30 minutes of intense nonstop cutting but I highly recommend buying 2 batteries or the WORX Chainsaw that already comes with 2 batteries. It’s easy to put the chain on & it’s also easy to adjust it. The first couple of times you need to tighten the chain after a few cuts because it loosens up which is normal , but it’s super easy to tighten it with a turn of the knob. And I like the fact that you can take the batteries off when you start fooling around with the chain. It’s an extra safety precaution . You need to buy bar chain oil & I would recommend buying an extra chain or two.
Compare to a gas chainsaw it’s quick and convenient. Of course you wouldn’t expect it to compete with a gas powered saw but it works well for cutting limbs off trees and could probably cut a ten or twelve inch diameter tree you would need to recharge the battery often for big jobs though. Over all it is a great little saw for light to medium work.
This Oregon battery powered chainsaw is well put together. There are many 40 volt chainsaws on the market, but this is the only one that sharpens the chain while still assembled. That feature alone makes this saw worth buying. The brushless motor has noticeably more torque than the previous model. Easy to handle, light, efficient, a long enough bar to cut some significant diameters.
I loved the ease with which this chainsaw can be cleaned without any tools, to include in the field while on the job. The instructional videos makes assembly, cleaning, and maintenance a simple job. There are two models of this make sure you get the 300. The 300 has a brushless motor (more torque than the 250 with brushes. Also buy an extra battery 4 or 6 amp so you can stay cutting for longer without recharging.
The greenworks 40 volt chainsaw comes in at a good price and has plenty of power for cutting trees. The battery should last for at least an hour however I do recommend for anyone not cutting whole big trees down full time. It is great for quick trim jobs that you have to do every year without having to break out the bigger heavier Husqvarna. It has enough weight to make it stable to use but not so heavy so its easy handle it. The chain is easy change or tighten up using tightening mechanism. So…overall I would recommend this to anyone for an all-purpose backyard type saw.
