Craftsman V20 Pruning Chainsaw Performance

  • Model: Craftsman CMCCS320D1
  • V20 Lithium-ion (2ah)
  • Brushless motor
  • 6-inch low-kickback bar
  • Up to 85 cuts per charge
  • Cutting Capacity: 4 inches
  • Weight: 8.378 lbs. (assembled)

Starting with the driving force behind this model, the saw sports a brushless motor that’s powered by the V20 Lithium-ion (2ah) battery. According to Craftsman, this adds up to an estimated 85 cuts per charge.

These numbers aren’t bad considering that the 4-inch cutting capacity goes beyond mere branches and into the realm of small tree limbs. And this with a comparatively maneuverable chainsaw.

The manufacturer touts the Craftsman V20 pruning chainsaw as 50% more compact and, at a shade over 8 pounds, 14% lighter than their V20 Cordless Lopper. What’s more the 6-inch bar allows for more precise, close-in cutting.

Finally, an integrated tip guard provides greater control over upper cuts.
