Cordless or battery powered gardening tools have made great advantages with technology in recent years so are no longer under powered ‘toys’ offering the consumer a valid alternative to noisy, emission belching petrol machines.
The McCulloch LI40CS domestic chainsaw has a 35cm (14”) bar and chain made by Oregon. Oregon is the biggest producer of chainsaw bars and chains in the world and their products are fitted to both domestic and commercial chainsaws. The LI40CS has all the features and specs you would expect from a petrol saw including an automatic chain oiler and safety chain brake. The motor is brushless so provides excellent performance and a longer life than brushed motors. The running time will depend on the thickness and type of wood being cut but typically you could expect approx. 100 cuts on 6 inch pine. The plug spanner has been integrated into the base of the handle so it is handy to reach.
The 40v 2Ah battery and charger are compatible with all the 40v tools in the McCulloch Powerlink range.
Remember you still need to use chain oil with the saw. Failure to do so can damage and seize the chain.
