Black & Decker 20V MAX* Chainsaw is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheOracleLisa from Know what you are going to cut first Be prepared for the battery to last about 15 minutes at full speed use. Luckily, that is about what we expected as we also own the 20v li ion weedeater and trimmer. We hate using gas motors. They are finicky, cumbersome, and unless they are used often, they don't start well. We had a large section of my in laws tree break off in a storm and needed to get it down to a manageable size. So we moved fallen limbs around for the best access to cut them. Went through all of the 5 inch diam. Downed limbs with no problem, then through a couple of 10 inch logs, then through the large main limb about 15 inch diameter in a few sections. It made quick work of a fairly large task. In about 10 to 15 minutes of making pre-planned cuts it ran out of battery. But that was no problem since we planned ahead. This light little guy was awesome. It cut like butter, was easy to oil the chain before starting each new cut (chain oil was Not included in the box), you just push a priming button a couple of times before you start each new cut. Overall very happy with the purchase. We will use it for odd jobs such as falllen limbs, and even if we needed to cut it down to firewood we would just do it in sections with the battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SHolmes from Excellent portable chainsaw I cut down two trees and stripped all the limbs off with this chainsaw on one charge and without fully discharging the battery. One of trees was about 8"'s and the other about 6"'s. It proved to be maneuverable in tight brush situation a much easier to handle than a gasoline chainsaw in close quarters. At least with a one time use, I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappiQuilter from Easy to use I bought this to use in clearing out small brush and trees. It's nice and light weight and easy to use. I'm 62 and not in the greatest of shape!! This is perfect for me. I purchased a couple of extra batteries just in case the battery life was poor. Battery life was excellent in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FrankinBflo from Black and Decker 20V and 40V chainsaws Reading descriptions and comments about the Black and Decker 20V and 40V chainsaws on the internet is a joke so I studied the B&D owner’s manual that has both of the saws in the same owner’s manual before buying mine and figured I would share the info with you to help you decide which one to buy. The main difference between the 20 volt LCS1020 Black and Decker chainsaw and the 40 volt LCS1240 Black and Decker chainsaw is that the two saws use different batteries and were not designed to use a 20V battery in a 40V saw or a 40V battery in a 20V saw, and have different oiling systems. The LCS1020 (20V) chainsaw has a cutting speed of only 3.5 m/s, while the LCS1240 (40V) has a faster cutting speed of 5.0 m/s. The model LCS1020 (20V) Black and Decker chainsaw uses a LBXR2020 40 watt 20 volt battery that takes a fully depleted battery 4 to 5 hours to charge. You can charge a partially used battery whenever you desire with no adverse effect on the battery. Black and Decker recommends that you recharge the discharged batteries as soon as possible after use or its battery life may be greatly diminished. The LBRX2020-OPE 20 volt 2.0 AH battery has 33% more run time than the LBXR20 battery. And they say to unplug the charger from the power supply (electric outlet) when there is no battery in the charger. The battery is supposed to be good for up to 150 cuts on branches that are up to 1 ½ inches thick. Another difference is that the Black and Decker LCS 1020 (20V) chainsaw has a manual oiling system. In other words the 20V saw does not automatically lubricate the saws chain. The saw is equipped with a manual oiling system that keeps the saw chain and guide bar lubricated, but you have to slowly press the primer bulb on the oil cap three times before making each cut. To do this you have to hold the primer bulb down for 1 second each time. The oil level indicator shows the level of the oil in the chain saw. If the oil level is less than a quarter full, remove the battery from the chainsaw and refill it with a quality chainsaw bar oil for proper chain and bar lubrication. B&D also says that you can use a temporary substitute non-detergent SAE30 weight motor oil if you have to. It’s also a good idea to have a small oil can with oil in it so can oil the chain and bar in case the saw isn’t properly oiling it. The LCS1240 (40V) chainsaw has an automatic oiling system that keeps the saw chain and guide bar constantly lubricated. Keep an eye on the oil level, if the oil level is less than a quarter full, remove the battery from the chain saw and refill it with the correct type of oil. Do not lay the saw on its side because it might leak oil. B&D suggests draining the oil out of the saw if it won’t be used for a while. It’s also a good idea to wipe the chain bar every so often while using it to remove the excess oil and dust from it. Another good point is to keep the saw level while using it instead of at an angle especially if you’re on a ladder. You’ll stay safer and cleaner. If the bar or chain becomes overheated, the chain might be too tight, or needs lubrication. A common cause of overheating is that you’re pressing down too hard on the saw trying to get done quickly. The proper way to operate the saw is to operate it at full speed allowing it to cut for you by applying only light pressure. Do not put pressure on the chainsaw at end of a cut. While Black and Decker replacement parts are available at Black and Decker service centers, some of them can be more expensive than what you can purchase them for elsewhere. According to their owner’s manual the LCS1020 (20 volt) saw requires replacement chain # RC1000, part number 90609782. The bar that holds the 10”chain is part number 90609787. The 20V saw has a limited two year warranty. You can find these part numbers on the black plastic guard, the large piece closest to the chain bar. Their LCS1240 (40 volt) saw requires replacement chain # RC1200, part number 90609781. The replacement 12” bar part # is 90609786. The battery is supposed to be good for an average of over 60 4x4 pine cuts on a single charge and hold a charge for up to 18 months. This saw has a three year limited warranty. The LCS1020 (20 volt) saw I decided to buy came with an Oregon Black and Decker P6 90586750 bar that holds the chain, a chain, an LCS1620 type 1 charger and a 2.0 ah 20 volt LBXR2020 battery. Unfortunately Black and Decker’s website lacks details on their products and several dealers that sell the saws have incorrect data on them and many with outrages prices so it pays to shop around no matter what you’re buying. Another brand I was going to buy was priced from $138 to $275 for the same saw but the batteries were very hard to find and sellers that had them wanted for $89.99 to $102.99 each for them. B&D phone number is 1-800-544-6986. While battery operated tools have short running times, I got fed up knocking myself out starting my 2-cylinder gas chain saw so I gave it away. For small jobs the battery operated tools do ok, but not for heavy duty jobs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chuckrat from Black and Decker 1020 cordless chain saw Bought today, used today. Too soon to give it a 5 star, but so far so very good. Made several cuts over the course of an hour with battery to spare. Plus I have 4 tools and 6 batteries all interchangeable, so I can go as long as it can.
