Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable, Poorly Made, Slow Repair Purchased this chainsaw in early 2021. It stopped oiling after very light use. Took 10 weeks for RYOBI to repair it. Cheap internals, so I really don’t expect it to last. I will not be purchasing RYOBI again.
Date published: 2021-11-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Energy Guzzler It has a lot of power and cuts much faster than the previous model. However, it uses the battery power much faster. Even with two batteries I am unable to fill the truck bed with the 6' logs like I could with the previous model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I must say its better then I expected. I have... I must say its better then I expected. I have 2 gas chainsaws that are great! I did not think that this Ryobi battery powered chainsaw would be as good, but to my surprise it is - without the hassle of gas and smoke like the other saws and coming in smelling of exhaust. It is a real pleasure. Thank you Ryobi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very capable. Very capable. Plenty of power. Took down, chunked and cleaned up two large trees with a single charge on a 6amp hour battery. Light. Easy to operate. For a homeowner only needing a chainsaw here and there I can't imagine missing a gas powered tool.

Does this saw have as much power as the 18 inch 40v cordless chainsaw which has to be purchased with the battery included, just a smaller bar size than the 18 inch saw?? Or does the 18 inch saw have a more powerful motor than this 16 inch model? Thank you
Asked by: baldair
I looked at the parts breakdown for this model (RY40505) and the 18" version that comes with the battery (RY40508). The motor and the controller are the same part numbers so I expect them to be essentially the same in performance.

Can you put a smaller bar on the 18" model, ie put a 14 or 18 on it when needing to cut smaller trees?

Does this saw(RY40505BTL) actually have a "Mechanical chain brake"? I've seen discussion that it is actually just that the chain stops turning as soon as the trigger is released.

No power reaching the chain saw when the battery was installed, the trigger pulled and the safety switch opened.

Asked by: bigsky
Hi, Bigsky. Thank you for your interest in the RYOBI 40V Brushless 16 in. Cordless Battery Chainsaw. The RY40505BTL is larger than the RY40503BTL which is why it weighs more.

I can't own a bunch of chainsaws, so would it make more sense to buy a 16" model & 14" bar/chain vs 14" model & 16" bar/chain and interchange them as needed for the most useful or best handling bar length for the job? Same w/18"bar/chain too?

Asked by: bigsky
Hi, Bigsky. Thank you for your interest in the RYOBI 40V Brushless 16 in. Cordless Battery Chainsaw. Both the 16 inch and 14 inch chainsaw are interchangable so you could use the same bars/chains for each of them and will get the same results. The 18 inch chainsaw will have less variety with what bars/chains you can put on it.

What is the duty cycle? If I have half a dozen 4ah batteries, can I use the saw non-stop, only pausing to change batteries? Or will it overheat?

Asked by: JustSomeGUy
JustSomeGUy, thank you for your interest in the RYOBI 40V Brushless 16 in. Cordless Battery Chainsaw. It is possible that continuous use of this product in that way could cause it to over heat. You would do best to allow a bit of a rest between battery changes.

Asked by: Wolfmann
It has a small tank to fill with bar oil that keeps the chain lubed while you cut. Doesn’t seem to leak when not in use either like a lot of them tend to.
