Excellent Chainsaw
Would recommend this product to any home owner that needs a chainsaw for moderate trimming maintenance around the house. The whole 40v Max System is great.

Easy To Use
Great little saw and faultless service.
I limb our trees and often get a few feet off of the ground on a sturdy ladder with a helper (wife)' The size and light weight are a good fit.

I bought this saw for my wife to use since I am handicapped and she could not handle my gas powered saw. We had some downed tree limbs and it worked great to cut them up into easy to lift pieces.

Does it come with battery?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes it does!
Does this come with a battery charger? I would think it would but it is not mentioned in the "includes" section of the product description. If so, is it the fast charger or the slow charger? Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, this chainsaw includes a battery and fast charger.
Does the 8.3 weight include the battery?

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
