The Good

  • Lightweight
  • Portability
  • Maintenance
  • Safety

The Bad

  • Speed
  • Oil Use

Lightweight: The BLACK+DECKER LCS1240 is about as lightweight as chainsaws come, making it easy-to-use whether you’re standing or up on a ladder. This model is great for extended-time projects, as your arms won’t be tired after a full day of use.
Portability: Wherever you need to do work, this cordless wonder will take you there. With a battery that lasts more than an hour with continuous use, you’ll be able to put in time on those hard-to-reach places and trim those pesky branches without being shackled to an outlet.
Maintenance: This unit is easy to take apart and clean, which adds to its longevity and effectiveness. The automatic lubing mechanism acts as a protectant against chain damage and limits the amount of wear and tear on the overall product.
Safety: The lack of a cord, the lightweight design and a the number of safety features make this chainsaw the best bet for anyone who isn’t an expert. The wraparound handle also makes it perfect for older and less muscular users.
NoMark
Speed: You’re not going to fly through any tree-cutting projects with this unit, as speed isn’t one of its selling points. You shouldn’t be looking to take down a thick tree or large branch very quick with this model.
NoMark
Oil Use: This saw runs through oil, especially because of the automatic chain lube system. While not uncommon, be ready to keep a reserve of oil on hand to accommodate the lubrication mechanism.
