Note on the battery you use with this: higher amp-hour batteries are needed. I have the 20v 12" chainsaw and 2x 6AH batteries. I also have a bunch of 4AH & 3AH batteries. The 6AH batteries perform better, noticeably more power. That said, I love the chainsaw. In for this. I like the smaller lightweight electric tools for most general work, then you keep a nice 18" Stihl around for when you need real power. Both have their place,

No. And from the sound of it, I don't know why you'd use it as a chain saw.

The electric chainsaws are already somewhat meh, can't imagine them with the smaller motor + chain of a pole saw.

The kit would be worth it if you could sell off the charger + battery.

Interesting tool, but I have no use for it. Thwarted this time, Slickdeals!

Edit:

F, I found a use for it 😐
Electric chainsaws are kinda meh?!?!? That makita saw is a baaaaad saw, i have no idea what you are talking about. There are countless video's of them destroying gas chainsaws of the same aize.

FYI, the $65 "corded" Sunjoe posted here often is a great pole saw as well.
The worx pole saws can get even cheaper than that. I bought a small one with detachable chain saw for $42 delivered. I believe the saw only has a 10" bar... it's pretty small but I was still able to successfully cut a large 50 year old orange tree stump with it... the stump must have been exactly 20" in diameter because the saw was barely long enough.

I'd be all over this, but I've read that the oil leaks during storage. Recommended to drain the oil or store it with cardboard underneath. Anyone else have any experience with this?

Yeah that's the problem. They're small, made for work around the house. Not well suited for more professional work (even slightly).

I've seen the reviews as well. Go check out Ave and here's something more direct:

For small stuff every once in a while, it's ok. If there's a good deal on one I'll pick it up.

Which is why I also said I can't really see why people find it viable to use a converting pole saw as a chainsaw when the chainsaws themselves are.........meh.

Bar Oil leaks on most chainsaws in storage.

(Channelling ave) Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder. They ain't great but they aren't tea bag.

Compared to a pro gas saw, they don't hold a candle. However, I think they have their niche. I've used the 20V saw to limb out 5 trees and I've used the 16" to chunk out and buck up 4 of them (50'-60' x 16" pines). Upgrade the 20V saw to a 14" bar and it's a nice little wood beaver. Heavy, but usable. Most people won't strap on gaffs and do their own in tree work, so I'm in the minority there. For the price and not having to smell like 2-stroke, they work good as long as you keep them in batteries and oil and constantly make sure the bar isn't loosening up.

Also on the plus side, they're cheap enough to sell and buy as needed. No need to hold on because you'd rather keep it around just in case.

Had a good chuckle 😂

Yeah, they're not bad.

Now on to the important thing...since when does Acme collect tax in Florida??

Edit: Toolup is offering the same deal and lets you order, but free shipping starts at $200.

I have a Greenworks 40v 8.5ft, that works very well for personal use on our trees all around our property (80 or so), I got it for less then this with a battery, from Amazon, and was $80 on Cyber Monday, ...and is $85 without battery and $140 with, currently. So, to me this seems luke warm at best. If you don't already have batteries then this would be another $60-$100 for batteries and a charger.

I also have the Greenworks 40v 16in chain saw, that works very well, and prefer it to my gas chainsaw.

:
Does this one not reduce to regular chainsaw like the Sunjoe?
  • Battery Operated vs mostly corded
  • Vastly superior quality
  • Already works in many peoples eco system for batteries
Who its good for:
  • People already in the DeWalt ecosystem or planning on getting into it (battery required, big battery will allow it to perform better and last longer)
  • Or those living in neighborhoods that require trees be maintained, whos property is sitting at a large body of water where trees grow crazy fast and in a region where even cutting limbs professional cost a small fortune. No joke, this would pay for itself for just cutting a single limb - that is seriously not a joke.. I've had quotes on just getting a single tree cut, its insane so I do it myself
Sun Joe:

Who its good for:
  • People living in neighborhoods with small / average lots where an extension cord can easily reach anywhere on your property. 90% of home owners can get away with Sun Joe or Ryobi. Yep, it'll cut slower but just a bit slower and if it dies, you only paid $50 or so for it on sale years ago so who cares.
  • Those outside of DeWalts battery ecosystem. I absolutely would not get this if you arent or arent planning on getting into it
DeWalt and the other brands in its range are between home use and professional - often times they're both so clearly the DeWalt will be built better and perform better but you're also paying a lot more for it. Rather or not its worth it for you is what your needs are. Both are great options, there is no 'best' because best for a casual diy'er that has a small property likely wont be the DeWalt one due to its cost.

I've been looking for this a long time. Never had any luck finding it over the summer. I actually used a chain saw blade tied to weight paracord to trim what I needed. Guess I can wait to see if it becomes more mainstream for deals.

Edit- Can't take a chance and ordered it! That's is the way.

I have a couple old, large black walnut trees with several dead branches that I've wanted to remove for a couple years now, but didn't have the tools. Looking forward to using this. Repped.
