Ryobi RY5020 20” Gas Chainsaw

While battery powered outdoor power tools are becoming more powerful, larger tools like chainsaws over 18” are still mainly gas powered, especially for anyone on a budget. Ryobi recently released a new RY5020 20” gas chainsaw which should fit users with larger properties that want to take down some larger trees or cut their own firewood.

My thoughts: Professional 20” chainsaws can be quite expensive, but someone who doesn’t need all the power in the world will be happy to see this option from Ryobi as it looks to combine good specs and features with an excellent price point $199. Features include a 50cc 2 stroke engine, anti vibration handle and a kickback activated chain brake to minimize the risk of injury in the event of the chain binding and kicking back at the user. Overall this looks to be a nice addition to Ryobi’s gas powered outdoor power tool lineup.
