The choice is up to you, according to your personal preferences regarding weight and what you want to use it for.
As a nice marketing touch, the Ryobi chainsaws come in hard storage cases.
The Ryobi's feature an auto bar with chain lubrication viewer, which is a real plus when you're working, and an easy twist and tighten chain tension affair. It comes with a no slip power cord hook so you aren't always having to scramble to keep plugging it in, or knotting your cord to make it stay put. It also comes with a good two-year warranty.
Unlike McCulloch or Remington, starting this saw is a bit of a challenge because it's a slightly complicated affair that means you push and hold a button in and then push the trigger at the same time. Once you have your co-ordination figured out, it gets easier. The bottom line with this start system is that it is a good safety measure.
Many users tend to find that the Ryobi chainsaw plows its way through a lot of bar oil and since you can see the oil levels at a glance, it's easy to add more as you're working. One thing many users tend to forget is that the more you use a saw, the more you need to adjust the tension on the blades. So while this may be considered to be a con, it's something that happens with most other chainsaws as well. Thankfully adjusting the tension is very easy. All you do is loosen a nut and turn the knob on the side. How easy is that?
There is a problem with the cord, as it tends to get in the way and many users thought the no slip power cord could be in a better location on the back of the handle and not right under the trigger. Having mentioned the trigger, this is something that is a pretty important point to mention. Even after you release the trigger, the blade keeps running. So make sure you put it someplace safe until it stops.
If the cord is a problem then you can always go for the Ryobi cordless chainsaw as it gets very good ratings in it's category. I hope our Ryobi Chainsaw review helps you out with your next purchase.
