Beware 40v line not compatible with other dewalt construction tools or flexvolt. Yard tools only. These should equate to a little more power and runtime with the 7.5 battery due to more watt hours however

You are far from credible without giving more details..... Including info like battery size(voltage and amp hrs) and model would greatly increase your street cred

I mean are we talking 18-20v brushed with a 1.3ah batt or 80v brushless with 5ah batt?

Any decent cordless chainsaw is really going to be paired with a minimum 160 watt hour battery. Anything less and yea you mite suffer like you. Cant buy crap at a low price with great performance

Supposedly the DeWalt 40V line of Outdoor equipment was discontinued and is all but gone from their website, but now Home Depot shows much of the 40-Volt DeWalt lineup as "NEW" as in, new to Home Depot. I can see this being true as Lowe's stopped carrying DeWalt's 40v lineup last year.

Perhaps this is now a Home Depot exclusive. I'm OK with that as I don't want this system to be completely abandoned as I am heavily invested. It has worked very well for my family.

Me too... The only other tool I think I would want is the lawnmower. Already have the Blower, Trimmer, Hedge Trimmer, and Chainsaw. I would be so happy If they would come out with a Snowblower, I think I would shed a tear...

Yeah, it really makes no sense for them to keep the 40v line going now that they've come up with the Flexvolt battery system. If you're already heavily vested in it, these tools might be a good idea. But otherwise I personally wouldn't start buying into them.

You either have a piece of crap or nothing at all. I have a milwaukee and I was able to trim trees literally all day on the 18V 9AH battery, the 9ah outlasted me. I was able to go for a few hours cutting much larger trees down, then I just swapped to another battery and had less down time than I would have if I was refilling it with gas.

Sorry, I really don't like to rain on parades - but I can't even begin to imagine how useless a battery powered snowblower would be.

And I drive an electric car plus I have a 20V blower, trimmer, chainsaw, circular saw, sawzall, finish nailer, 2x screw gun, 1/4" impact driver, jigsaw, and whatever else I'm forgetting.

Seriously, powering a snowblower on batteries that size would be a nightmare.

I have the dewalt 60v and cut up a fairly big pine, ready to split with one one battery. The saw just barely was able to cut through with one pass as so it was pretty thick and the battery was fading on the last cut.

Now if I try cutting a hardwood tree of the same size I can easily burn out the 9ah battery in 5-6 cuts but that not what these saws are for. Though I do really hate starting my gas saws. If I have thick stuff to cut I will run out with two batteries, burn them out quickly and come back and charge them.
