Ryobi 20 in
ReviewSpecificationWhere to buy
The Ryobi 20 in. 46 cc gas chainsaw is a professional tool designed for the most difficult woodcutting jobs.

The large bar and chain are easily handled and the vibration greatly decreased by the anti-vibe handle. This chainsaw is built to cut any type of wood and it’s built to last. It allows you to cut through the hardest wood types.


Easy to handle

The anti-vibration feature is one of the best characteristics of this Ryobi chainsaw, and it makes it superior to other chainsaws its size and power because it allows the user to operate it for long periods of time without feeling his hands numb.

You shouldn’t have any problems getting this chainsaw started, no matter if the saw is hot or cold. Just follow the instructions and it should start right up. It is also equipped with chain break to make it safer to use. The end of the bar has a chain guard on it, which will keep your chain sharp when cutting up logs on hard surfaces like concrete.

Easy to maintain

The Ryobi 20 in. comes with a standard multi tool for chain adjustments and maintenance, so you shouldn’t have any troubles readjusting the chain if need be. You can also store files and other tools in a case with slots.


Minor design flaws

After using it for a couple of hours, you’ll start noticing some minor design flaws. The chain tension has to be checked often to make sure that the chain will not create any issues, and you’ll notice that the Ryobi 20 creates a lot of sawdust in a short time, so you will have to clean it often too.

Another thing you won’t like is that this chainsaw is very noisy, so you may need to wear some ear protection if you use it for longer periods of time. Perhaps the gas and bar oil tanks could have been bigger, to allow longer work time, but you should still be able to finish the job as it is.
