A Cut Above with BLACK+DECKER

Chainsaws can be quite intimidating: they’re noisy, hard to control, need smelly petrol to run (and use it quickly!), and drip oil everywhere… Well, not the BLACK+DECKER 18V 25cm Lithium-ion Cordless Chainsaw! This is a whole different story, and once you’ve given it a try, you’ll see just how useful it is around the garden and even in your DIY station!

Since it is battery-powered, the 18V Cordless Chainsaw is quieter to operate than traditional petrol chainsaws, but still has loads of torque (for cutting power), and completely does away with the need for storing petrol on your property. The 18V POWERCONNECT battery allows for up to 220 cuts of 3.5cm material on a single charge, and the power doesn’t fade as the battery discharges.

With a 250mm cutting blade, it can deal with all types of gardening tasks, even cutting down small trees or lopping off branches with ease. And if you like to create things out of wood, this cordless chainsaw can cleanly cut through thick timber to make those projects quicker, easier, and less tiring.

Speaking of less tiring, the chainsaw has been designed for optimal balance to make using it more ergonomic, and the soft handle keeps the grip comfortable, while the 3.1kg weight makes it more manoeuvrable. It is also a low kickback saw, which is safer and easier to use.

Stay safe!

Remember, a chainsaw is a cutting tool, and it is up to you to make sure that it only cuts what you want to cut! Keep your fingers out of the way of the chain, and make sure that you cut in a safe manner. Here are some tips to ensure safe operation of your BLACK+DECKER 18V Cordless Chainsaw:

  • Hold the chainsaw firmly with both hands to prevent slippage or kickback.
  • Wear appropriate safety kit, including safety glasses, gloves, and boots.
  • Make sure no one is near you when you start working with a chainsaw.
  • When felling a tree, make sure everyone on the property is aware of this.
  • If felling a tree, make sure you know which way it will fall and work around that.
  • Never take you eyes off the cutting bar.
  • Know where the bar will exit the material you’re cutting, and make sure nothing that shouldn’t be cut (like your leg!) is in the vicinity.

The Cordless Chainsaw is part of the extensive BLACK + DECKER POWERCONNECT range. This means that it uses the same lithium-ion battery and battery charger as every other tool in the POWERCONNECT range, making ownership more convenient and cost effective. You only need to buy one charger and battery, which can be used with multiple tools including the leaf blower, the grass strimmer, and the mower. A great way to get started with the range is to buy the 3-in-1 Strimmer Grass Trimmer & Mower combo, which comes with a battery and charger. Once you have that, the rest of the POWERCONNECT 18V tools can be bought without batteries, leaving you with a high quality and versatile range for a surprisingly small investment.
