Ryobi One+ 18 Volt Cordless Chainsaw

ryobi_cordless_chainsaw.jpgEarlier in the week, we told you about Ryobi's new electric start String Trimmer and now we're going to say something about their new cordless chainsaw.

The saw has a 10" bar and a push button oiler. It is compatible with Ni-Cd or Li-Ion batteries. It's also light for a chainsaw, weighing just over 5.5 lbs.

When you think about it, 10" isn't a whole lot of bar for a chainsaw. We doubt that anyone is going to be felling any mighty oaks with this tool, but it would probably be a nice item for someone who wants to do some serious pruning or a little bit of brush clearing.

Chainsaws are unbelievably dangerous tools and the fact that the gas ones need so much maintenance has probably kept some people away from them. But now that they are as easy to use as a cordless drill, we worry that they might fall into the hands of someone who isn't aware of the incredible danger of the tool. We just hope that anyone buying this chainsaw has a complete understanding of just how dangerous it is and how it only takes a split second of inattention and you're a goner.

The Ryobi cordless chainsaw is available at Home Depot and costs anywhere from $60 to $80, which sounds to us like a good price for the tool.

This tool is FANTASTIC. Exceeds expectations, which were moderate given the high marks it's gotten in reviews. I will never use a gas chainsaw again, and you can just use a two-pack of regular batteries (don't need the lithium) to last you a lot of cutting. One charge fells and carves up one 4-6" tree. Recharge is only 2-3 hours, so by the time you're done with your lunch break, you're ready to rock some more.

Seriously, any homeowner with moderate to high levels of pruning aspirations NEEDS THIS TOOL. You will be the hero of your block.

As a homeowner and lake home owner I ofter wish for a small power sprayer for spider spray or other insect/yard/garden application. I wonder why you have not developed a small reasonabley priced power sprayer for use with your 18 volt system. I think you would have a good market for this product.
