This chainsaw is light and easy to maneuver. I get 30-40 3-4"cuts per charge. I use the 20V batteries from other B&D tools without issue.
Recently purchased based on previous B & D experience. I have been using chain saws for over 40 years from professional grade to homeowner grade and including battery powered pole saws. This one seems little more than a toy. The chain adjustment doesn't seem to stay adjusted for more than a few minutes and the chain has a tendency to jump off the bar. Also the chain does not run smoothly and tends to chatter when cutting (unlike any other chainsaw I have used).
I bought this chainsaw a couple of weeks ago hoping to use it for cutting some firewood for this season. The power is weak, and the battery discharges within 20-30 minutes of using it. It’s making what should have been a simple, relatively short task, MUCH more complicated as I have to do it in very short shifts while I constantly wait for the recharging to complete. Not happy.
This chain saw is easy to use and maintain. It is so light. The chainsaw is good for light pruning of trees.
Live on a farm with lots of shrubs and it takes care of the stuff larger than my pruner can cut. Love it.
I like this saw. It is great for cutting smaller logs. It is quite capable for cutting logs up to 5 or 6 inches. I have a bigger battery powered chain saw but I prefer to use the B & D 10 inch for the jobs it is suited for.
There is a tendency to grab and jerk when starting a cut. I expect that is in the chain design. The cutting teeth are close together and I expect that is the cause but the saw cuts fast because of the chain design.
I heat my home with wood that I collect from the surrounding forest so I use the saw quite a bit. I have owned the saw for about 6 months.
We used it to cut down some brush and a 12 inch tree that was dead but did on one charge.
