Yes. With the applicable 14" bar.

Fun fact. The 14" and 16" Ego chainsaw are actually just as powerful as the other. But, when you put a larger battery (I forget if it's 2.5 or 5 v.s. 2ah) it actually makes it run at a higher power.

So you can take a 14" model, upgrade the bar/chain to 16" and pop a larger battery in and essentially have the same performance of the 16" version.

Which is interesting because a higher AH doesn't make the battery give any more juice. It's just a setting in the chainsaws computer that says 'oh, I have a bigger battery, I don't have to worry about runtime as much so I'll bump up my power.'

Fun fact the higher AH batt has double the batteries so it's sustainable amp draw is higher so it actually does put out more power. More amps x same volts= more watts = more power

What is the advantage of having an electric chainsaw vs. a gas-powered chainsaw? or disadvantage?

Thank you.

Is the battery new, or is that refurbished also?

I bought this same deal 2 months ago and have used it a bit. Great saw. Well actually I got the 14", but since I have 4 5a batteries already and never cut anything that requires 16", it was the better choice.

It seems to cut as well as a gas of the same weight, but is almost silent. You don't have to mess with starting it, worry about it stalling, or gumming up the carburetor.
Gas is probably the way to go if you will be using it all day; but for an hour here and an hour there; it is a real pleasure.

Can anyone document that fun fact about the 5a battery making the saw more powerful? I used a 2a battery and it was fine; which is not to say that a 5a wouldn't have been finer.

Same as every other batt powered tool. run time is reduced w batteries but way less maintenance required. Its good for clearing a tree or two but if you cut for three days straight for firewood then gas is what you want. Sure you can get multiple batteries but that gets expensive.

Sadly only one year warranty, otherwise I would have jumped.

Amps are not amp hours... Which is what Ah stands for... Amp hours are an estimate of runtime you will get on the battery

Real fact, amp hours and amps are not the same in your example.

I got the 14in refurb last time and mine came in really used condition. Looks like someone used it then wiped with a cloth and then threw it in the box. sawdust and scratches included. I returned it no problem but warning! don't expect a newish tool!
