2ah seems pretty small for such an application. Good price and PA has a great return policy, but I've never seen chainsaws come with such a small battery

2ah @ 20V is indeed very small battery capacity for a chainsaw though that 10" bar might be even more limiting. I use a 2ah @ 80V battery on my Kobalt chainsaw and I'll cycle through all 3 of my batteries during typical log cutting. My cordless chainsaw is a blessing after using a loud, hard to start 2-cycle saw but this thing is essentially a toy.

Agree with you on that one! I’ve had countless gas saws over the years and when battery units started appearing I was skeptical at their rated performance and capabilities. In 2018/2019 I bought the dewalt 20v chainsaw since I was already in dewalts 20v battery eco system, and was shocked at the performance that little saw had. I use 5ah batteries on mine and they last a decent length of time.
I don’t imagine a 2ah battery would last too long, and would probably need a few on hand to keep going. Perhaps this saw is good for heavy pruning and light cutting, but that’s about it.
Beauty, eh?

What possible use could this be?

I'm looking at it to clean out some property. It sounds good for the saplings that the brush hog can't handle.

I like toys too. But a swede saw is pretty efficient and never needs charging. Mine only gets used a couple of times a year.

I have this saw. I bought it during a season end liquidation at Walmart for less than 40$.

It's good enough for small trees, like up to 8 inches in diameter. I cut down an old cedar with mine.

8" on one charge? Better than I would have guessed tbh

I was quite surprised myself. I even got through some of the roots after I was done. Finished up with a second battery I have from a hedge trimmer I got during a similar clearance deal. Those Hyper Tough products are actually not half bad for the price (when you get them on clearance, anyway).

I agree with some of the other posters in their positive feedback on this cordless chainsaw. I purchased one from WM about a year ago on clearance for $50 and used it last summer on our 15 acre conservation property. I wasn't expecting much in performance given the small 20v battery.
We spent a good part of an afternoon trimming up about 30 branches that ranged in size between 4" to 8" diameter branches. We not only cut the branches from the tree but cut them into smaller sizes after cutting from the tree. We also cut countless smaller 1"- 2" branches along our trail on top of the bigger jobs mentioned. That entire afternoon job only consumed about half of the battery capacity. I was very pleased and impressed in it's battery performance for that job.

I have since used it for similar smaller jobs around my home and at friends/neighbors and it has performed well. I certainly wouldn't recommend this cordless chainsaw for massive tree-cutting or tree removal jobs and I don't think most would expect that kind of performance from a 20V <$100 cordless saw. The only drawback I have found so far, it drips oil for some time after use so you have to clean it up well before storing. They even recommend removing any oil if storing long-term.

While the WM deal was better, you would need the infamous time machine, so the PA deal seems decent. Thanks for posting OP Smiling Face With Open Mouth
