Hi there, could you please how long will the battery last when using the chainsaw
It's difficult to put an accurate number on it as it will vary depending on how much energy is required (eg. cutting scrub vs cutting a larger log), however 25 minutes is an approximate guide.

The little chainsaw that could

I am impressed with this saw, so impressed it has permanently replaced my petrol pruning/de-limbing saw. I had bought this for my wife as she doesn't like the petrol ones (heavy/noisy) but its mine now when I can get my hands on it. Keep the chain sharp and it cuts well. Photo shows 1 battery worth of power cutting up 2yr old slash, dry and hard.

GreenWorks Chainsaw G-MAX 40V Li-Ion 12" 2.0Ah Kit - awesome piece of kit

Awesome tool, easy to maneuver and light, great battery life, works just as well as a traditional petrol chainsaw although is much quieter and doesn't pollute. Great buy.

G-Max40 12inch

I bought one of these early 2019 and I have been impressed. I find it's not so good cutting small wood (up to about40mm) as the chain speed is much lower than other saws, and the cutting tooth is only every 3rd link, while most others are every 2nd link. This makes the wood being cut chatter and jump. However, cutting heavier stuff - up to 200 or even 250 mm it is brilliant. Like all tools: don't force it.

Great wee pruning chainsaw

Great wee pruning chainsaw. Lots of grunt for its size.
