The New Ozito 18v 250mm Cordless Chainsaw
This is a review I have been looking forward to writing. I have never owned or even used an electric or cordless chainsaw before but have been told how handy they are to have around. I’ve have heard about how simple they are to use, and how much less hassle they are when it comes to all the the smaller chainsawing jobs that you have around the yard.
Inside the box there is just the chainsaw itself, a spanner/screwdriver and the chain guide bar cover. Keep in mind that this is just a skin from the Ozito Power X Change Range so there is no battery or charger included. You need to buy these separately if you don’t own any of the other tools in the Power X Change range.
Even though this chainsaw is cordless and doesn’t need fuel, it does still need oil to lubricate the bar and chain. So before doing anything else you need to fill the chain bar oil tank.
The capacity of the tank is 220ml and make sure you use only “Bar and Chain” oil.
A handy little feature on this model is the Oil Level Window so you can see very easily when this electric chainsaw needs an oil top up.
After adding the oil, and off course a battery, you’re pretty much good to go and start cutting.
As I said earlier I have never used any type of electric chainsaw before, but now that I have used this one, this is the one I use the most…. by far.
Unless I need to chop down a tree, or cut up some large diameter firewood, this cordless Ozito is the only one I have used in the last few months. The 2 stroke Husky is sitting in the workshop collecting dust until it is needed for the bigger jobs.
I can’t state enough about how handy this thing is to have around.
- It’s easy to use.
- It’s not always running like a fuel powered one, when you put it down.
- It’s quieter.
- It’s safer, especially if you are not comfortable using the fuel models.
- Cheaper to run – no fuel required.
Just press the trigger to do a cut, then put it on the ground while you clean around a bit and then pick it up and start cutting again. It’s just easy!
Keep in mind that this chainsaw is no where near as powerful as a fuel powered model, so this model is great if you don’t have a lot of large cutting to do, and it’s also great as a second model to have around like I have, to cut up smaller trees and trim branches.
