Compatible with Kobalt 40-Volt MAX family of products. 2.5 Ah battery and charger included. Low Kickback Bar and Chain. Replacement Chain (Lowe's Item #). Way better than i thought.
Went to do some tree clearing on my property and with the battery instead of gas it worked really well cut all the trees in the attached pics, down and in pieces with one battery charge. This lightweight chainsaw is super easy to use and handle. The trigger start does not require any pumping of chain oil prior to use.
The 12 inch bar and chain is a perfect size for light duty trimming. My husband used it for the first time to cut brush from small trees. The handle design is very nice and secure. The 40 V cordless design is very convenient when out in the woods on our side property. This kit includes a 2.5 Ah battery and charger with LED indicator.The saw came partially charged. The green light indicator is easy to see. The battery loads easily into the saw and overall, the saw is very lightweight. Vibration with this saw is less than other saws. The battery can be shared and used with the other KOBALT products, such as blowers, trimmers and mowers. This is a very nice features for these products. This saw is very quiet, which makes for a good residential option.
Being electric, I wouldn't expect it to last that long and would recommend it for small jobs where you just need a few pieces of wood and not a whole lot (like when you run out in the middle of the night and need a few more pieces to last you until the morn, or when you're out camping and don't feel like paying a ridiculous amount when you can sneak off and get a bit of your own). The battery lasts a good while. I used it to cut a few pieces of log and the battery dropped down to 3/4, but to my surprise when I picked it up the next day it was fully charged. The oil consumption rate is good, as the level didn't drop whatsoever, but perhaps it just has a large tank. This is a far less messy alternative than a gas chainsaw, and ANYONE can operate this.Being an electric unit, it has plenty torque. However, the chain is so small and the motor/battery/shroud/tank take up so much area that it can sometimes be awkward using, like in cutting off small pieces.
It may be hard for it to "dig in" to the wood at first, as it will tend to pull or push and needs to be held down well. The shroud is large however, and will surely protect you from the chain.The trigger has a slight push-thumb safety similar to many sawzalls. The battery has a life indicator, in case you choose to run this unit all day and need to know when to switch out batteries. However, this unit only comes with one (1) battery and a charger. Local pickups NOT available at this time.
