Power Equipment Direct Recommended

Here is what all you cordless tool users have been waiting for!! The new Redback 120-volt Lithium-Ion cordless chainsaw is here. It offers up to 55 minutes of run time on a single charge.

The Redback 106493 uses a brushless motor which can sense sawing speed and allows for no bogging down when you are in the middle of a cut. It helps maximize run time and gives you the power you need, when you need it.

With a full 18” bar and standard size chain, you can not only limb but fell trees as... more

A Leap Forward In Chainsaws
The feel and balance is right on. The amount of torque from the 120V Lithium and the brushless motor will pull you up the side of a building and it has the smarts to only use as much power as you need for that cut

Slide the battery in and go! There's none of that I don't wanna fire up the chainsaw stuff anymore

Half the noise and all of the clean air whew! I can actually be calm and cut!

And these folks will take care of you, I've learned
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Battery Doesn't Hold Up
Purchased last month, and after trying to recharge battery, will not hold a charge or charge above 1 bar. Tried to contact Redback and never get a response back!!! Loved the chainsaw, but not if it is a one use and done saw!
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable

Mara,
We are sorry to hear there was an issue with your battery. We have reached out to Redback to contact you and they informed us they did speak with you and a new battery was sent out through the warranty process, but please accept our apologies for your disappointment and inconvenience!

Redback 120 Volt Chainsaw (checking With Dale)
Because of hearing loss I recently bought two battery chainsaws: the Stihl C-BQ, (36 volt) and the Redback 120 volt from Chainsaws Direct. The Stihl has exquisite design, superlative touch and control, and a high price point $590 with the 14 inch bar. It will cut 120 2-4 inch oak limbs, and still show 20 30 % reserve. But the ¼ inch kerf means pinching and binding.

The Redback 120 volt is a horse of a different color. It is heavy, but well balanced. It is powerful, ripping a 14 inch... more

"Rapid delivery, great product, start shocking chains and bars. Wonder if a 16 inch bar and a 5/16 inch chain would be a good option. Dale, you must provide warning stickers, as a minimum!!! I spent 22 years in court as a plaintiff attorney."

John,
We are very happy to hear you like the Redback chainsaw. We will pass the information to Redback about the warning stickers since we do not manufacturer these items. We do not open or tamper with the factory sealed package. There would be no issue using a 16" bar. However, the pitch for this model is 3/8" and the gauge is .050". We appreciate your business, and apologize for the inconvenience.

Stellar Product!!
This is a must have for a home owner. I used it for an hour straight and then I put it on the charger (it was not too hot to go right on the charger). I stacked the wood I cut and within half an hour the saw was ready fully charged and ready to go! Great buy! I would recommend it without a second thought

I Like Everything, I'm A Little Concerned It Doesnt Put Out
I love it, qualtiy seems to be well built, it holds its power until warning light comes on that battery is drained - love these features. Everybody says battery is expensive , I disagree because of it being 120V.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Durable

Excellent Chainsaw, Not Just By Electric Standards
I've been using it around my property a lot since I got it, and it truly is an EXCELLENT chainsaw easily on par with if not considerably more powerful than my gas chainsaw (50cc) without any of the hassles that come along with it.

It's so quiet I don't even bother with hearing protection, I can easily hear everything going on around me including the slight groans coming from a tree being cut as it's starting to give.

If I had one gripe, and it's a very modest one, is that while the... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Fast, Powerful
Cons: I just wish there were cheap and common batteries

Battery Power Will Take Over!!
I have no idea why anyone would mess with gas and mixing oil after using this. The only messy part of this is having to still put in bar and chain oil!

Great product, I look forward to seeing this brand more places and trying out their other products. Fantastic.

I Love This Saw!
Out of the box the leds on the battery indicated 3/4 charge. I assembled in less than an hour and went to work on a 80 foot pine that had recently fell over in my yard. I cut all of the branches and trunk into 20 inch sections on that 3/4 charge. On the last two cuts on the trunk the battery started to complain by beeping and flashing a red led on the battery pack indicating low battery. The saw never bogged even on the last two cuts. I just sold my homelite 360 professional, it was a... more

Excellent Value
I have used many chainsaws, but never a battery powered one. I was quite impressed with the power of this chainsaw and the battery life. I was able to cut down two 25 foot hemlock trees and into pieces without a recharge.

The blade seems to get loose rather easy, but I was afraid to make it too tight as the pieces that lock the blade in place are plastic.

Overall I was very impressed and I see no need to go back to a gas powered one for around the yard use. Certainly, it saves time... more

Electric Chainsaw What A Great Experience
Very familiar with gas chain saws but been using a old corded electric unit for trimming around the yard for years now it was time to replace the old cords so figured it was time to look at a battery unit instead .

Checking around the hardware stores and pawn shops was not very helpful so ran across chainsaw direct had the best selections and reviews and product descriptions are very helpful . Since I've got 2 plus acres of land with trees looked big and this fit the bill.

Ordered and... more
