Greenworks Products Have Major Switch Problems
Greenworks products, it turns out, have major switch problems. I had a Greenworks Garden Tiller and the switch went bad. Took it to a repair center, they kept it a month and said the switch was no longer available. Now I have a Greenworks cordless chainsaw and pressing the on/off trigger does not engage the unit.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet
Cons: Unreliable

John,
I'm sorry you've had problems with switches on Greenworks products. You may want to give the folks at Greenworks a call at 888-909-6757 so they can help you under their Factory Warranty. Please have the serial number of the saw handy when you call Greenworks, in case they ask for it.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

40v Cordless
Previously had a 18V cordless chain saw and it was only good for pruning branched 2-2-1/2 inches thick. This saw can go through a 4 to 5 inch trunk with ease. Very happy with the product
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations

In A Wheelchair
I used a chainsaw all my life until I got hurt in a 4-wheeler wreck. I tried using my 20 inch Husqvarna and could not handle it. So I tried my son's 16 inch Husqvarna, and it was a little easier. Then I found this saw and bought it cheap. I did not figure it would do the job, but WOW it will go right through a 6in. tree.

I have been using it for 2 months now it is a surprise I could not be more pleased with it. I use it 45 minutes at a time and have never ran the battery down while using... more

Love It
I am a 65 year old lady. We live in Arkansas with a lot of trees which with the weather we have been having a lot of limbs broken off. We have a gas powered chain saw but it is too hard to start and use but now with my Greenworks battery chainsaw I don't have to wait on my husband to trim .......I love it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Greenworks Cordless Chain Saw 12" Model 20262
I needed a small chain saw to take down an aging fruit tree, including roots. The Greenworks G-Max (12") saw was up to the task - even though this hardwood tree had a 15" trunk. It did take a few battery recharges to complete the job - including slicing the trunk into firewood length sections. Each charge gave about 25 minutes of continuous cutting time through very hard fruit wood. It goes through the chain oil pretty quickly, but I suspect that most chain saws do.

So Far, So Good!
I've never owned a chain saw before. In fact, I'm not sure I've ever used one. My Greenworks rechargeable seems to work extremely well for the size jobs I have.

Early on, I lost the chain, but I think that's because I didn't know how to set the tension. After that, the G-max went through about 10 medium sized branches and the battery never died. Nice power. Decent performance.

12 Inch Chain Saw
The saw works great, and I even cut a 16 inch pine with no problem.

Well built and designed.

The Max Is A Great Tool.
I have 3 chain saw's 2 gas,1 elect, and now I have the G- Max 12" and it works great, My church has 37 trees that we planted 10 years ago and they needed to be timed so I bought the G- Max 12" and extra battery.

The reason I bought the Max was when I was up in the tree or on a ladder I could hold the saw with one hand and get the job done.

The 40 volt battery would last for hr's, most of the time when I was cutting the bat would last late into the afternoon. I was cutting... more

I Love This Machine
I know white pines and cedars are not really very hard work for chain saws but that is all I have on my property and some of them came down last winter. At age 72 I am a bit timid of gas chain saws and the noise certainly is not good for my ears even when wearing annoying ear muffs. I gave away my new gas chain saw and bought a G-Max 12" 40v cordless chain saw. It is great for small trimming but it also slices through a 12" white pine with ease.

After making about 6 cuts that size... more
