Safety is an integral part of using a chainsaw. Electric chainsaws have several features that make them safer for casual users than their gas-powered, corded chainsaw counterparts. Electrical chainsaws feature lower chain speeds and are equipped with chains that run only when you’re actively cutting with your saw, as well as bars that measure no longer than 18 inches. One great example of an electric, cordless chainsaw is the new CRAFTSMAN V60 Cordless 16-inches Brushless Chainsaw (also known as the CMCCS660E1 model).
The CRAFTSMAN V60 Cordless 16-inches Brushless Chainsaw weighs 12.4 lbs, or 9.8 lbs without its battery. It’s chain pitch measures 3/8″ inches and its chain gauge is 0.043″ inches thick. It is UL safety listed as well as CSA safety listed. It comes with one CMCB6025 V60 MAX 2.5 AH rechargeable lithium ion battery and its CMCB602 V60 lithium ion charger. This chainsaw features tool-free chain tensioning and it also comes with a bar cover.
The CRAFTSMAN V60 Cordless 16-Inches Brushless Chainsaw features a high efficiency brushless motor for powerful performance to maximize runtime and motor life, allowing users to power through any yardwork. The chainsaw’s brushless motor is fueled by a high capacity 2.5 AH lithium ion battery, providing long runtime, while also offering compatibility across other V60 CRAFTSMAN tools.
The chainsaw features a 16-in low kickback bar and chain, a bubble level for precise level cutting, and auto oiling along with tool free tensioning for minimal maintenance. It’s supported by the VERSATRACK Wall Organization System (CRAFTSMAN’s product for homeowners who need storage and organizational solutions in their garage or shop). It’s capable of up to 140 cuts of 4-inches x 4-inches pressure treated pine per charge.
This chainsaw is backed by CRAFTSMAN 4-year limited warranty, along with a 90-day money back guarantee. If you’re looking to get a CRAFTSMAN V60 Cordless 16-inches Brushless Chainsaw, it’s currently priced at around $260, and you can find it here.
