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 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.
Pros: Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, High Quality

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

Awesome Saw
I really like this chainsaw. It is a little bigger than I expected, but it is still manageable. It has a great run time and it cuts through thick logs quite well.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable
Cons: Heavy

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

Love It. No Drawbacks, But Areas To Improve
Heavily forested 2 acre homeowner with many trees bigger than a bear hug. I bought this specifically because I am a night and weekend warrior usually. The times the neighbors (and i) don't like hearing chainsaws. Owned for about a month. I've used on a 20" tree down to thick forsythia. Trees, saplings are all quick work. And the runtime is fine. I get over an hour as I fell, cut off branches and make 18" logs. It cuts as good as a gas saw. The brand new chain helps. Never got... more
