Ryobi One+ 10 in. Cordless chainsaw review

ReviewSpecificationWhere to buy

The Ryobi One+ 10 in. Electric Cordless Chainsaw is a lightweight design chainsaw especially built for taking care of small chores that home users can do around the house. The battery is compatible with all of the One+ series, so if you had another one you can install it in your new saw. A battery charger also comes with this Ryobi model.

Pros

Easy to use

Due to its light design, the Ryoby One+ 10 in. is ideal for women who have to take care of small woodcutting jobs around the house. It works great, it is quiet and easy to handle. The battery seems to be improved as compared to the previous Ryobi cordless saws, and it should last for about an hour of continuous use – and you can recharge it very fast. Even the amateur users will find that the chain is very easy to adjust and to clean up.

Cons

Not many improvements

If you were hoping that the Ryobi manufacturers would learn from the mistakes made with their previous cordless chainsaws, you will be disappointed. Just like its predecessors, the Ryobi One+ 10 in. has some oil problems – such as oil leaking when idle, which means that you may have to buy a quart of bar and chain oil, as the oil included in the box will not last long.

Again, just like its predecessors, the chain of the Ryobi 10 in. travels around the bar so slowly that the branch jumps all over the place.

Design flaws

This chainsaw is great for small branches, but only for vertical cuts. If you want a horizontal cut, there is no hand bar to hold it in that position, so it will kick back so much that you will have to push the safety trigger after every kickback.

So little power !

If you are hoping to tackle bigger projects, such as the backyard stumps, logs and spitting firewood, the Ryobi 10 in. saw is definitely not the size or speed you are looking for in a saw.
