Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Kobalt 80-volt Max Lithium Ion 8-in Cordless Electric Chainsaw. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.50 stars, and the price range is $193 - $345.

The Kobalt 80-volt Max Lithium Ion 8-in Cordless Electric Chainsaw has all the benefits of a powerful chainsaw without having to mix gasoline or pull a cord to start. This battery operated chainsaw holds a long charge to power through thick trees or tree branches in no time, plus the saw charges back up in 30 minutes or less so you can keep working.

The cordless device makes it easy to move freely while getting work done. Plus, without the hassle of using gasoline, this chainsaw can be used indoors without worrying about dangerous fumes. Customers say the chainsaw lasts quite a while on one battery charge, and customers are very happy with how quickly it charges back up. Others say the kickback bar adds a safety feature that other machines do not always have, plus, a tension and slack adjuster helps to preserve the machine and prevent damage, as well as continue on with high quality cuts through the process.

Some say the chainsaw dies fast, especially after cutting through large trees or branches. Some say after taking down just one large tree, the battery depletes to near zero. However, others say the fast charge makes up for this.

Seriously makes me think about converting all my gas power tools over to electric, especially the ones that take mixed gas.
