DEWALT DCCS690M1 40V Li Ion XR Chainsaw via Amazon
The DCCS690H1 chainsaw is one of the latest cordless tools by Dewalt and as a 16 inch brushless chainsaw it has a very powerful motor that works on a 40 volt 6AH lithium ion battery so it offers the great performance and cut speed of a powerful gas unit with the more reliable battery power instead and without cords and cuts through different diameters smoothly. 16 inch means a 16 inch low rebound Oregon bar and chain and as a security measure it includes a chain brake to protect you for when it kicks back. You will not need to lubricate this chainsaw as it will be automatically oiled with Lubriwell and Lubrilink conveniently and oil is refilled swiftly with the quarter-turn oil cap so there is not much maintenance required and the chain life is very long. It comes with the battery charger, a bar tightening knob to fasten the bar properly and strongly and the chain is tensioned without using any tools and the changeable speed trigger is good for better user control- chainsaw will stop when you release the trigger.
Dewalt DCCS690H1 is a very sturdy heavy duty unit that is designed for daily use and is built to last a long time, it is not particularly heavy (shipping weight is 20.4 pounds) and has the dimensions of 9.4 x 36 x 9.3 inches. Battery life is quite good and you have the battery charger at hand for when battery runs out and performance will not be affected by cold weather and is as powerful as a gasoline operated saws while being a lot easier and more convenient to use. Dewalt’s new line of 40V Maximum cordless battery powered tools targeting the lawn care pros have not even been on the market for a year yet but their big claims seem to be true, we can only speak for this unit and by checking the reviews for other members of the line, they really are as efficient as the gas powered line (of course without the smell and loud noise), you will not have to deal with the gas and oil mixture and you won’t have to go around looking for ethanol free gas in gas stations. *Raymond E.
