Oregon 40v chainsaw
The Oregon 40V Max* chainsaw is a one-of-a-kind equipment which can perform heavy duty cutting jobs faster. You will find it so convenient to use especially that this is an electric type of saw and it comes with a battery pack and a charger, thus you don’t need to worry for any refilling or leakage of gas. Aside from that it is also very safe to use with its PowerNow technology. With this, the equipment has a safety chain brake, a kickback guided bar, and protection from heat and overloading.

You can really say that this chainsaw is a good value for your money.


In terms of performance, the Oregon 40V Max* is capable of cutting any kind of wood. Regardless of size, whether a branch or trunk, this chainsaw can do the job without any breakdown. With the PowerSharp feature, auto-sharpening of the chain is also very easy to perform, thus maintaining the sharpness of the chain and making the whole cutting job so efficient. It also starts so easily without any trouble and pressure. The battery also works well with the equipment. It can sustain multiple hours of work per day without the need to recharge for the next day. The most interesting thing about this chainsaw is that it is noise-free and light to handle.


The Oregon 40V Max* was found to have issues on some parts. One in particular is the kickback brake. The said part of the equipment is susceptible to have some technical problems when it is dripped with the chain bar oil. The battery that goes with the package does not come up with the expected battery life. There were instances also that the charging time of the battery is much longer compared to its battery life. Aside from that, some clients find the cost of the chainsaw expensive and its weight is heavy.
