What experts liked
There is a compromise here in that the chains aren’t quite as strong as the 0.05” gauge but because they are lighter they do help to improve speed, thereby improving cutting performance. Which brings us on to the chain speed. This is measured at 23 meters per second, which is excellent and can certainly match that of many gas powered models.
- Sawed Fish
The brushless motor produces higher torque and faster chain speed, resulting in better performance and Gas-Like Power. The 14” bar and chain is perfect for larger cuts and yard clean-up. The light weight design reduces user fatigue over extended use. The RYOBI 40V Brushless Chain Saw also features an automatic oiler for continuous use and a wrap-around handle for comfortable cutting and user control.
- Wood Magazine
Efficient cutting experience.

What experts didn't like
Battery life is poor with the battery supplied.
