Ryobi 40V HP Brushless 18″ Chainsaw – Features

Ryobi 40V HP Brushless 18" Chainsaw

Ryobi adds this new 18 inch chainsaw to their powerful line of HP brushless products. Nearly a year ago Ryobi released the 20 inch 40V HP brushless chainsaw and now this is their latest 18 inch version. Featuring a similar design (not the same but similar) but with an 18 inch bar and chain. Though it may seem like a pointless additional model having the similar design but with slightly smaller bar, the good news is that it is $100 cheaper in both baretool and kit form than the 20 incher. It appears that the original 20 inch model uses a double stud design, while this newer model uses a single stud design. There are probably more changes internally as well.

This new 18 inch model features a brushless motor which Ryobi claims delivers more power than a 40cc gas chainsaw. And since it’s electric, you don’t have to hassle with the downsides of gas such as consumables like oil and fuel, and engine maintenance. You also gain easy push button starts and quieter operation since there’s no gas engine buzzing around.

Chain tension is adjusted using the included combination wrench to adjust the single stud. You can get up to over 9o cuts per charge with a 6ah battery. And with its 18 inch bar, you can make cuts up to 32 inch wide (with two passes of course). It also features a mechanical chain brake and metal bucking spikes for kickback protection.

I greatly like that they include a nice storage and carrying case to store and protect your investment.
