Battery will last about an hour, even with constant use. Chain oils automatically, removing the need to service manually. Easy to clean when routine maintenance is needed. Users love not needing gas. They also feel it's relatively lightweight and quiet compared to other models.
When the battery is drained, it can take up to 45 minutes to recharge. Tends to go through oil quickly.
No tools needed to adjust chain tension. Starts up quickly once plugged in, unlike gas chainsaws. The integrated bar will stop the saw if it's kicked back against the user. Clear window indicates when oil level is low. Included manual gives helpful common cutting tips.
Limited to how close the chainsaw is to an electrical outlet. Heavier than a battery-operated model.
Comfortable handle provides a good grip for better overall control. Will run around 45 minutes on a single charge, and quieter than a gas chainsaw. Simple to put together out of the box, requiring no tools. Older users are happy with how compact it is.
Unlike more expensive models, the chain needs to be manually lubricated. Will not cut as well through very large trees.
Easy to assemble and to adjust chain. Can remove the kickback bar to make it more compact before storing. Less noise and pollution than a gas chainsaw, and will cut continuously for a longer period of time. Oil keeps chain lubricated when necessary.
Chain won’t work if put on in wrong direction. Need to use a heavy-duty extension cord if working beyond the saw's plugged-in distance.
Users with other pieces in the 20-volt series love the ability to interchange the battery into multiple tools. Chain tension is easy to set. Saw is easy to clean when it’s messy. Light enough to use while on a ladder. Perfect for clearing out smaller branches.
Does not come with a battery or charger. Will not have as much power as a large gas chainsaw.
