Great Saw
I purchased 40v 7.5A chainsaw this week and love it. I have owned and do own gas saws and this saw has its place. In most cases unless cutting big tree bases this saw does it all with ease. No gas, very little noise, no pull stating and another engine to take care of.

Good chain saw
I bought this saw a few months ago and have used it several times always with satisfactory results. It takes much less prep time than my three other chainsaws. I wish DeWalt had a similar version in a pole saw.

I own a tree service and was given this saw by my wife. I didn't think would like a DeWalt chainsaw. It was a little strange the first couple of times I used it. Now this is one of the only saws that goes into the boom truck. When you are up a tree you are constantly starting and stopping your saw to move a few feet. I like not having to pull start a saw hundreds of times a day. The battery lasted way longer than I ever thought it would also. I think this is the best saw for a home owner to get. All of the gas saws on the market are having problems with the new fuel and emission regulations. If they are not ran every month with new fuel you will have problems. That will never be a problem with this saw and since the battery works on my 20v tools it never goes long without being used.

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.
