Craftsman C3 10 in.19.2 V cordless chainsaw review

ReviewSpecificationWhere to buy

The Craftsman C3 19.2V Lithium chainsaw will get your attention from the very beginning by the fact that it can be powered by one 19.2 volt battery. Despite that, it promises to offer enough power for most jobs that a regular chainsaw could do. The lightweight and compact design makes it easy to use, even for amateurs, and it should be very comfortable in the process.

Pros:

Ideal for small jobs

Although the manufacturers say that the Craftsman C3 has enough power, you shouldn’t expect to do much heavy – duty work or big firewood jobs with it. However, it is ideal for those little trim chores that the gas chain saw is too much trouble for.

The power, speed and battery life is the first thing that will catch your attention – it’s quite incredible from a saw this size and weight how fast and reliable it is. And if you switch to a Lithium-ion battery pack, you will double its power.

Easy to use

This is the kind of chainsaw that you could let your wife use without any worries. It is so small and light, and it has a safety button to it which really gives you peace of mind. The chain can be adjusted very easily and you can see through a small window to check if it has enough oil.

Cons:

Chain and oil issues

Experienced users may find that the chain is moving much to slow, and this can indeed cause frequent jams and push backs, not to mention that it will take you a lot of time to cut through small logs. If you use the chainsaw horizontally, you may also find it hard to manually apply the chain oil. The oil will leak from time to time; in some cases it may even empty if you stop for 15 minutes.

A good investment though!

The Craftsman C3 is definitely an interesting chainsaw, one of a kind, and ideal for the small jobs you need done around the house, if you don’t mind the small design inconveniences mentioned above.
