The Ryobi One is a slightly improved version of the previous Ryobi cordless chainsaw, offering a somewhat lighter design and better performance than its predecessor. If you already have a Ryobi One+ battery, you can use it on this model, so you don’t have to buy a new one as the battery is not included.
Some good improvements
You will notice some improvements with the Ryobi One+ if you have used the previous cordless model in the Ryobi range. The Ryobi One+ is cleaner and quieter than its predecessor, and overall easier to use.
The lower speed allows the chain to stay sharp for a very long time, and you shouldn’t see any smoke coming out of it during use.
For a small cordless chainsaw, the Ryobi One+ offers decent performance, allowing you to cut through logs of 7 inches in diameter, without using any fuel. The batter lasts from 30 to 40 minutes when using the saw continuously, so you should be able to take care of everything you need done around the house by then.
Just like the previous cordless saw in the Ryobi series, this one also has several issues with the oil, one of the most frustrating being that it leaks when idle. The chain oiling system doesn’t seem to put enough oil on the chain, unless you push the bulb on top, so you have to remember that when using it.
The chain speed is so slow that it tends to bounce on hard wood until it gets in, so you should avoid any harder woodcutting with it unless you feel strong enough to manage that.
Decent tool for small jobs!
The improvements made by Ryobi for this chainsaw as compared to the previous cordless they sold make it a decent tool to use for any small jobs you have to do. It still leaks oil, but its overall performance and excellent maneuverability should be enough to make the Ryobi One+ a decent light chain for entry users.
