Chain Saws Direct Recommended

The DeWalt DCCS690M1 is the perfect chainsaw for anyone looking for gas like performance without the mixing of fuel and the worry of a gas saw not starting. With this saw you just pull the throttle and go to work.

Equipped with DeWalt's 40-Volt Lithium-Ion battery you are able to get fade free power and full productivity until the battery completely dies. Along with this the DCCS690M1 comes with DeWalt's XR-Series brushless motor. This provides up to 57% more run time than your usual... more

This Chainsaw Is Perfect
This chainsaw is ideal for medium jobs up to cutting up medium/large trees. It is quieter than a gas saw and quite as powerful as the 16" Stihl I had before. The really nice thing is you can sort branches, prepare, get a drink of water, etc. and just pick it up and go, even for a minute at a time! Trigger off and it is off! You use power only when you are cutting. The battery lasts a long time also. I love it.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable

Dewalt Xr Delivers As Expected
I tried the DeWalt 40V XR line earlier this summer to replace my very cheap corded hedge trimmer when I moved to a a place that had a lot more landscaping that wasn't all right next to the house. I was very impressed with the quality and performance. My backpack blower was replaced with the 40V XR as it was the last item that required mixed fuel.

I am still impressed with the build and performance with the added bonus of not messing with fuel. When it came time to replace a rickety chainsaw... more

Oiling System Broke, Otherwise Great Saw
I bought this saw because of prior positive experience with Dewalt tools. The 40 volt actually has a larger battery (more cells) than the new Dewalt 60 volt chainsaw . I'm able to make approx 20 cuts of 14 inch diameter honey locust. Battery life was about 15 min of continuous cutting. Decent for a battery. The oil reservoir fill cap is recessed, which is bad, since debris gets inside. I prefer the the filler neck sticking out (like a plastic 2 liter soda bottle). I have 4 chainsaws,... more

Better Than A Regular Saw So Far. At 30 Below She Will Definitel
A full 6 hrs of run time even during extremely cold weather. Cuts anything a gas saw 16" bar will cut . Ran the saw 24 hrs so far very impressed.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Chain Saw!
I had some concerns about a battery operated saw but they quickly vanished. I'm in my 60's and didn't want the continuing hassles of mixing gas, yanking a cord that might or might not start a chain saw, adjusting the idle, and finally, the excessive vibration found with a traditional saw. This has plenty of power with none of the issues I listed above. Is it for the professional? No, no doubt. But the battery stays charged for quite some time. I cut down a 14" tree and sawed it up and... more

Electric Vs. Gas
The saw is easy to use, never a worry of starting as with a gas chain saw. It does have power, but I can not really say it is as powerful as my gas saw with the same size chain. To go out in the woods you really need 2 batteries which are not cheap. The other thing I noticed is the bar is not as stiff as the gas saws. It tend to wander when cutting firewood. Which is no big deal as I am not building furniture with it but just wonder how long it will last.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Battery runs out of power quickly

Love This Chainsaw!
Did a great job of cutting some fire pit wood - went very quickly. Surprisingly, this is very quiet for a chain saw. I would definitely purchase this product again.

My First Battery Operated Saw
The DeWalt 40v Cordless Saw has been exceptional but the saw turned out being a little bigger than I expected, thus a little heavier.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Quiet, Price

Quality Tool
I purchased the saw for Pops who is in his eighties and due to some shoulder arthritis has been having problems getting his gas saw started. He loves it - I doubt he will use his gas saw again.

The down side to this is my uncle, also in his eighties has tried out Pops' saw and also loves it. His birthday is Sat. so this has turned into an expensive proposition for me.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again

Nice
First use today on some large limbs max 8 inches in diameter. Beech and cedar

Fresh battery, new chain. Saw barely slowed down.

Only dislike is the small lever that needs to be depressed before pulling the trigger. I know it is a safety feature but it is stiff and intrusive. May change with use.
Pros: Quiet, Fast, High Quality, Easy To Store
Cons: Difficult To Use
