Echo 58V Chainsaw Review CCS-58V4AH

Black and Decker 40V Chainsaw Review


…out the need for 2-cycle fuel. You still need to add chain oil to keep the Oregon 12″ bar and chain lubricated, but the battery and electric motor are what’s driving the saw as it cuts. The chain tension is controlled by a two step process of loosening the black bar adjust locking knob on the right side of the saw which then allows you to tighten the orange tensioning knob to adjust the proper tension of the chain.

Greenworks 60V Chainsaw CS60L210 Review


…b in my opinion. Skip-Tooth Chain The Greenworks CS60L210 chainsaw uses an Oregon 91 skip-tooth chain. This saves on the cost and requires less juice from the battery, but these skip-tooth chains cut slower than traditional chains. That’s no surprise since it has half the teeth.

It seems my entire family saved 5 years’ worth of tree trimming for this moment. That said, I’m…

One of the victims was a mature oak tree just outside one of our shops, struck by lightning during one of the many thu…

Greenworks 60V String Trimmer Review


…#8217;s likely due to the inclusion of a skip-tooth chain. With a standard Oregon 91 chain, it would have performed much better. But with one hit and one miss, where does the Greenworks 60V String Trimmer fall? And following our string trimmer shootout from a couple of years ago, is there any improvement from the 80V model? Top Features Pro Vs Joe One of the first things to look at when figuring out where a string trimmer fits is at the head. A Pr…
