I hope I don't lose you at the word ELECTRIC or BATTERY.  I know what you're thinking because I was thinking the same thing when I purchased this electric chain saw to go with the Ryobi 40V battery system I was already starting to collect.  But, like we always say here at Simple Suburban Living, we have a small yard and, although I would love a more powerful (and expensive) chainsaw, we really don't have a need for it around here. 

The saw is fairly powerful for an electric saw and is able to cut through 12-inch logs with no trouble.



























Of course, this is no saw mill chainsaw and nothing you are going to be milling lumber with, but for a quick around-the-house saw it is great. I try to give a thorough review when I review products and I hope that anyone looking to purchase this saw will be better informed.  I have had the chainsaw for about a year now and have had a chance to use it throughout the winter and this summer. I really had a hard time finding anything wrong with the saw and am extremely happy with its use.

I will also do a review on the weed-trimmer at a later date. 

Check out this video to see the Ryobi 40-volt chainsaw in action.

  2. What about using used motor oil on a chain saw bar?

    1. I have never tried that but I do have several gallons of oil saved up for something..... Can you do that without damaging the saw do you think?

  3. I have seen your video clip. thank's for Ryobi 40-Volt Electric Chainsaw sharing.
    My favorite feature of this chainsaw is the automatic oiler system and a tool-less chain tensioning system for quick and fast chain adjustments.

  9. I think I would do the same expectations when choosing the best miter saw especially the electric or battery-operated ones. I think these are great for home DIYers but for hard-core woodwoking - better stick with the pros!
