The DeWalt DCCS690M1 is the perfect chainsaw for anyone looking for gas like performance without the mixing of fuel and the worry of a gas saw not starting. With this saw you just pull the throttle and go to work.

Equipped with DeWalt's 40-Volt Lithium-Ion battery you are able to get fade free power and full productivity until the battery completely dies. Along with this the DCCS690M1 comes with DeWalt's XR-Series brushless motor. This provides up to 57% more run time than your usual... more

This Chainsaw Is Perfect
This chainsaw is ideal for medium jobs up to cutting up medium/large trees. It is quieter than a gas saw and quite as powerful as the 16" Stihl I had before. The really nice thing is you can sort branches, prepare, get a drink of water, etc. and just pick it up and go, even for a minute at a time! Trigger off and it is off! You use power only when you are cutting. The battery lasts a long time also. I love it.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable

Dewalt Xr Delivers As Expected
I tried the DeWalt 40V XR line earlier this summer to replace my very cheap corded hedge trimmer when I moved to a a place that had a lot more landscaping that wasn't all right next to the house. I was very impressed with the quality and performance. My backpack blower was replaced with the 40V XR as it was the last item that required mixed fuel.

I am still impressed with the build and performance with the added bonus of not messing with fuel. When it came time to replace a rickety chainsaw... more

Oiling System Broke, Otherwise Great Saw
I bought this saw because of prior positive experience with Dewalt tools. The 40 volt actually has a larger battery (more cells) than the new Dewalt 60 volt chainsaw . I'm able to make approx 20 cuts of 14 inch diameter honey locust. Battery life was about 15 min of continuous cutting. Decent for a battery. The oil reservoir fill cap is recessed, which is bad, since debris gets inside. I prefer the the filler neck sticking out (like a plastic 2 liter soda bottle). I have 4 chainsaws,... more
Pros: Quiet

Better Than A Regular Saw So Far. At 30 Below She Will Definitel
A full 6 hrs of run time even during extremely cold weather. Cuts anything a gas saw 16" bar will cut . Ran the saw 24 hrs so far very impressed.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Chain Saw!
I had some concerns about a battery operated saw but they quickly vanished. I'm in my 60's and didn't want the continuing hassles of mixing gas, yanking a cord that might or might not start a chain saw, adjusting the idle, and finally, the excessive vibration found with a traditional saw. This has plenty of power with none of the issues I listed above. Is it for the professional? No, no doubt. But the battery stays charged for quite some time. I cut down a 14" tree and sawed it up and... more

Electric Vs. Gas
The saw is easy to use, never a worry of starting as with a gas chain saw. It does have power, but I can not really say it is as powerful as my gas saw with the same size chain. To go out in the woods you really need 2 batteries which are not cheap. The other thing I noticed is the bar is not as stiff as the gas saws. It tend to wander when cutting firewood. Which is no big deal as I am not building furniture with it but just wonder how long it will last.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Battery runs out of power quickly

Love This Chainsaw!
Did a great job of cutting some fire pit wood - went very quickly. Surprisingly, this is very quiet for a chain saw. I would definitely purchase this product again.

My First Battery Operated Saw
The DeWalt 40v Cordless Saw has been exceptional but the saw turned out being a little bigger than I expected, thus a little heavier.
