So far this year, Craftsman seems to be aggressively pushing their outdoor power equipment line. And an example from their fleet of OPE products is the Craftsman CMCCS320D1 V20 Pruning Chainsaw. How about we take a closer look at this piece of gear and see why it made our Best Chainsaw Reviews list.
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

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.

On the storage side of things, this model is VERSATRACK compatible. And to keep the blade clean and sharp, Craftsman included a sheath that locks in place and has a wrench that stores on the saw itself.
