Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than low-end gas chainsaws I have two low-end chainsaws that stop working after about an hour because they overheat and vapour-lock. This is my second 40V tool and I chose it because I already had a battery with my grass trimmer. I got this saw with a bonus battery so I now have three, which will allow me to use the saw for a fair amount of time. I have a cottage and cut firewood and I have some deadfall to remove on occasion. I used the 5Ah battery to cut deadfall logs that measured about 8-10 inches in diameter. I bucked three to clear a roadway, so about 15 feet, using only one bar of the battery. There were no issues with power cutting through the logs. The saw is light to easily carry around and work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good saw for homeowner It’s a good saw for around a house with a few trees but if you want to put in at least half a day of cutting firewood forget it!It has lots of power but batteries die fast on thicker wood and overheat often.For this to work well you need a few batteries that are 6.5 amps after the calculations it will run you twice the price of a very good gas saw !In my case this does not work so I’ll be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tout simplement WOW !!! J'ai acheté cette scie il y a 1 mois suite à une tempête. J'ai eu une dizaine d'arbres de brisés ou de déracinés. J'ai été agréablement surpris de la performance de cette scie qui est quasi comparable à une scie à essence. Évidemment, comme tout produit qui fonctionne avec des piles, il faut prévoir une deuxième pile pour pouvoir continuer à travailler lorsqu'il y en a une sur la charge. Il faut compter environ 30 minutes pour une pleine recharge de la pile. L'entretien est beaucoup plus facile qu'avec une scie à essence. Cet outil vient avec une mallette de transport rigide qui n'est pas indiqué dans la description (du moins je ne l'ai pas vu). Pas besoin de coquille pour les oreilles car elle fait très peu de bruit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found my new saw Looking to replace a gas chainsaw that was becoming too much hassle. I've been seeing the battery options in many tools become more and more of a replacement for plug in or gas. I went 18v for hand tools a long time ago as many did. I went 40v for yard tools in the last few years and love it - lawnmower is a game changer. Si thought I'd give the 40v chainsaw a go. First off the tool seems well made and heavier than expected. Nice balance, nice case and an updated charger compared to my original 40v chargers. Careful the oil cap doesn't mind a misthread and the chain needs adjustment on first use. 65 foot elm with 18 inch base was first target. Dropped, limbed and chopped with 1.5 battery charges. Impressed! The sharp chain and machine weight just flowed through the cuts, no pressure needed at all. I live rural on 1.5 acres, so am not using this to be a lumberjack. For my use it's a 100% replacement for a gas saw. Very happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dangerous Garbage. Leaks oil everywhere. Don't believe the response from Ryobi saying it's normal, it leaks all the oil out of the reservoir in a matter of hours, I've been running saws for thirty years, this is not normal. Because the oil leaks out and doesn't get to the bar, the chain overheats and stretches out. You have to tighten the chain every ten minutes, no exaggeration. You'll be buying a new chain every week with this thing. When it does cut it's good, but this loose chain issue will remove half your face, it's dangerous.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Habitué a mieux de Ryobi Je suis un peu déçu. Je suis un grand consommateur de Ryobi, j’ai plusieurs outils de la marque que j’aime beaucoup mais pour cette scie… un gros bof! Dès les premiers jours, le réservoir fuyait et peu importe le réglage ça coule… même une fois rangé dans sa boite, j’ai tout qui se déverse à l’intérieur. La batterie aussi n’est pas vraiment « heavy duty » (elle surchauffe vite) mais fait la job pour de l’utilisation moyenne. Déçu de cet achat en tout cas pour la partie robustesse :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good, bad, ugly. Starting at five stars for power and ergonomics. Minus one star for chronic loosening of the bar studs to avoid throwing the chain. Minus another star for the leaky bar oil. Minus one more for the leaky bar oil being a known issue on every one of these saws and Ryobi not seeming to care even a little bit about it. I would only recommend this saw to someone who knows full well its glaring flaws AND is getting it on super-sale. I regret buying mine at full price, would not recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaks oil Best chainsaw I have ever used. Light and powerful. However, it leaks chainsaw oil when stored.

What size of washer should I get to seal the oil cap? It should not leak like it does. It has made a huge mess. None of my other chainsaws leak oil. I love this chainsaw Ryobi but I'm not going to drain the oil every time I use it. Fix this

Asked by: Cindy
My chainsaw does not leak at this time but if it did I would simply find an o ring the right size that should fix the problem.
