Review: DEWALT 20V MAX Compact Cordless Chainsaw

Storm season is upon us in many parts of the country. As hurricane season winds down in the southeast, Nor’easters are starting to form in the north. One constant you will see in the images of these devastating storms is utility workers with chainsaws.

Since moving to rural New Hampshire, I have been the owner of a couple of chainsaws. My first was an electric model which had less power than an electric carving knife.  Later I stepped it up to a gas model that was difficult to start and needed more maintenance than my ten-year-old car. Once the gas model was started, it took forever to warm up and stalled often. All of these issues have been addressed by my new DEWALT 20V MAX* Compact Cordless Chainsaw (DCCS620).

The DEWALT 20V MAX* Compact Cordless Chainsaw is a dream to operate. Its lightweight design allows you to maneuver the tool easily into tight spaces. Manoeuvrability is incredibly helpful when using the device indoors for demolition projects. Despite the manageable 9 lbs. of this tool, it packs a lot of power. A brushless motor powers compact Cordless e DEWALT 20V MAX Chainsaw, the chainsaw achieves up to 90 cuts per charge using a 20V MAX* 5.0 Ah Lithium-Ion battery on 4×4 inch pressure-treated pine wood.

The DEWALT 20V MAX* Compact Cordless Chainsaw is a dream for doing pre-storm season prep. I was able to clear branches that could be troublesome during the winter. Each cut was clean and easy dramatically cutting down on time to do my storm prep. I then turned my attention to the brush in my backyard. Saplings and thick bushes quickly fell as I waved the chainsaw through the rough.

This tool is a must for anyone doing construction, demolition or homeowners with tree-lined properties like myself. I could also see the DEWALT 20V MAX* Compact Cordless Chainsaw being a tremendous asset for first responders and utility workers. Anyone that needs to cut piles of thick wood in record times would benefit from this tool.
