Cordless Chainsaw - 12" - 40V



This Black & Decker cordless chainsaw has the power and lightweight mobility you need to easily prune branches and cut fallen limbs. It features a 12" Oregon low-kickback bar and chain for rapid and smooth cutting performance. Adjustments are fast and easy to make thanks to tool-less chain tensioning, while the automatic oiling system lubricates the bar and chain for low maintenance. The full wrap-around handle ensures comfortable operation, providing improved maneuverability when cutting in different orientations. The included 40-volt lithium-ion battery with battery charge indicator holds a charge for up to 18 months, so the chainsaw is ready to work when you are. The battery is designed for lasting use, providing an average of over sixty 4x4 lumber cuts on a single charge.

Cordless Chainsaw - 12" - 40V is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saving me a lot of work I've never operated a chainsaw before, and I'm no spring chicken. While working and caring for my elderly mother for 10 years, the yard got neglected and I've been trying to catch up since she passed. I've been cutting down and cutting up huge bushes and small trees with a handheld pruning saw. When I found this product, I gave it a try. What a difference! It's much quieter than I expected, and it's not too heavy. You do have to watch the oil, as it eats it fairly quickly. Mine also leaks oil, especially if I hold it blade downward. However, it's a small inconvenience to me compared to the help it is. I'm really pleased. What a time and work saver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight and capable chainsaw My Worx electric chainsaw (I liked it a lot) locked up and I could not get it working so I decided to try this Black and Decker. I already had several other B&D 40 volt tools which worked well so I bought this. Right after it arrived, we had some storm damage to our trees with a lot of downed limbs. I filled up the oil tank and plugged in a battery and, after checking the chain tension, went into action. The saw is pretty light and well balanced. It is also fairly quiet for a chainsaw. I used the saw for about 30 minutes to cut up the limbs. These 40 volt batteries have an indicator on them that tells you how much charge remains when you push a button on the battery. After my 30 minutes, I checked and it still showed 3 out of 3 lights indicating that the battery was still mostly fully charged. I thought that the saw would deplete the battery quickly but that was not the case. The transparent oil tank did show that most of the bar oil was used up and I could see oil on the limbs while I was cutting. I would just keep the bottle of oil nearby and check the level frequently while using the saw. It was pretty easy to clean up after use as there aren't many places on the saw for wood chips to gather. I didn't take the bar off though so it may be different under the cover. The adjustment for the chain tension is similar to that on the Worx saw but the B&D was much easier to adjust. This saw is great for light duty around the house or even to take camping with you to cut up fire wood. It you have other B&D tools using the 40 volt batteries, I would recommend this saw as a great addition to your set. I also really like the B&D hedge trimmer and the line trimmer that use this battery. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I honestly didn't think this saw was going to be nearly as useful as it is. It cuts through up to 7" Trees so far. Very easy to handle and battery lasts for a good few hours. Gotta say I'm not usually impressed, but this saw is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40v B & D chainsaw Worked right out of the box after making sure chain was oiled. Cut down large bush. Worked great. Battery lasted entire cut. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointed Then saw sucked up chain oil like three was no tomorrow. It did not cut through wood as advertised. I returned the saw the next day due top bad performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sized saw for small woman We are renting a house with a LOT of old dying pine trees interspersed with sweetgums coming up everywhere. When we moved here, English and poison ivy had almost eaten all the trees, which I'm working to eradicate. I don't have the skill or experience to handle the whopper pines, but after watching training videos on YouTube, I've been able to take down a number of the smaller pines and sweetgums myself and buck them into short lengths for use as forest garden edging and hugelkultur materials. The main thing I'm trying to do is open up the property to more sunlight and return a portion of the forested area to deciduous hardwoods; this means I have to think carefully about what I'm doing and observe the impact of taking a tree down here, a tree down there. A tree service would have charged me several thousand dollars to thin out what I have been able to do myself, me, a little old lady under five feet tall with badly arthritic hands! I love the power and control this saw gives me! Just learn the techniques and safety cautions, and regularly clean and sharpen your saw, and you'll be able to do it, too.
