Default Ryobi 40V, 14in. Battery Chainsaw

My 85 year old Grandfather has an obsession with chainsaws, always has. He has at least ten and purchased a Ryobi battery powered one this week. My chainsaw is at a buddy's deer camp, so I went to grab one of his to do some spring cleaning around the house.

He asked what I was cutting and handed me this one. Love it!! Cuts like a beast for being a battery powered saw. While using it I could only think how great this would be in the deer woods clearing/cleaning up fire lanes.

Highly recommend!

I just bought the pole saw version of it. My dad has the Stihl (which is awesome). but for random cuts, or quick shooting lanes I think the battery powered is the way to go.

I have cut a LOT with my 36V Stihl. I rarely get out a gas saw anymore.

From my experience, two uses, plenty enough. I trimmed this past week with the same saw on all of my trees around the house. All-in-all, I would guess about 60 cuts of 1-3" diameter limbs between cutting them and cutting them up and the battery still had two of four bars left. I started with a less than full charge; these lithium batteries are off the charts!

If I had to estimate, you could clear some mighty fine firing lanes with a full charged battery. I am talking a hundred yards long by 6 or 8 feet wide.

Yup I just got the Ryobi pole saw as well. I was all prepared to return it if it didn't work well. I figured I would give it a try since I'm getting tired of replacing carburetors on all my small engines due to this garbage ethanol gas. I am impressed at how well it works. I bought an additional battery as well. I get about 15 to 20 minutes of continuous cut time per battery. Makes easy work of making shooting lanes and trimming branches on over grown trails. No more scratched paint on my truck running trails. I use it to prune the trees around the house also. It cuts 4 inch limbs easy.

Report back. I know the Stihl battery powered saws have gotten good reports.

Ryobi is in the consideration for battery powered lawn mower, weed eater and blower for my front lawn.

Interested in hearing how that battery holds up in the deer woods. I would imagine keeping that chain razor sharp will make a big difference as well.
