BLACK+DECKER LCS1240 Chainsaw Review
The battery-powered BLACK+DECKER LCS1240 offers the portability of a gas-powered chainsaw, with the convenience and simplicity of an electric model. The 40V battery makes for a cordless cutting experience similar to what you would get with a gas saw, but thanks to its light weight – the LCS1240 weighs approximately 8 pounds – it’s easier that other tools to handle during the smaller cutting jobs its best-suited for.
This product’s portability is one of its primary selling points. That cordless design, a 12-inch bar, and a lightweight build means the LCS1240 can easily be brought along on an ATV, or even a hike, in order to handle small tree cutting or limbing jobs at the edges of a large property. Making it even easier for use out and about, the BLACK+DECKER saw, features a tool-less chain tensioning system that allows for fast and easy adjustments and automatic guide and chain lubrication. A full wrap around handle can also make cutting from different angles and orientations comfortable.
As an added bonus, if you have other BLACK+DECKER power tools in your home or workshop that use the manufacturer’s 40V lithium ion batteries, you can easily swap these in a pinch. This is another product by a trusted brand, so if brand familiarity is an important factor in your purchasing decisions, and you already have a collection full of BLACK+DECKER tools, this might just be a good bet for you.
