Two things you need to know if, like me, you're inclined to just charge up the tool and go to work. #1 the chain needs frequent re-tightening during the first hours of use. (A little wrench is included to do this... very simple.) #2 don't forget to OIL THE CHAIN... something that's self-evident to people who've used a big chain saw but not intuitive to the rest of us.
1.) Totally house current and gasoline free cordless battery operation.
2.) Battery recharges in 3 to 6 hours.
3.) Battery charges off of the tool, so extra slip-on batteries may be purchased.
4.) Easily operated by an average strength adult.
5.) Easily taken apart for transport in the included heavy duty carrying bag.
6.) Smooth and quiet operation.
7.) Works well for pruning limbs and branches up to 6" in diameter.
8.) Rated by the manufacturer at 100, 1-1/2" branch cuts per charge (approximately).
9.) Price range $150.
The Black & Decker 18 volt cordless Model 2018 is my first powered pole mounted
chain saw and I must admit that I'm impressed. Most pole saws are either gasoline engine
powered (too heavy and too much maintenance) or 120 volt AC driven (can't be used
away from the reach of a 120 volt AC outlet and I don't like using 120 volt AC power
cords around portable saws that can all too easily cut into the power cord). The Black &
Decker 18 volt cordless overcomes all of these objections. It's compact 18 volt DC motor
is efficient, quiet and does a surprisingly good job on tree limbs (up to 6" in diameter),
dead wood, brush and other lighter duty outdoor cutting needs. Keep in mind that this
chain saw will not completely replace a larger gasoline powered chain saw for heavy duty
cutting jobs like felling trees, but it will handle the bulk of the tree pruning and dead
wood clearing that most home owners are likely to run into in a season.
The overall construction of the B&D 2018 is also impressive, it's built very well and
should last for many years with ordinary care and caution. Any chain saw should be kept
clean and well oiled at all times.Read more ›
-amazing cuts from the ground without climbing the tree
-very aggressive cut rate
-pretty easy to use, very easy to use without extra extension
-blade cover and attached oil bottle is convenient
-gets branches that you would otherwise have to call the tree man to do
-this is a real chainsaw so don't be fooled into thinking it's a toy, keep kids away too
-safety is a concern; safety glasses, heavy gloves, and a hard hat are good idea
-the lower the branch the easier to cut, high branches end up right over your head and there is risk of them falling on you
-it's hard to undercut the branch before top cutting to prevent tear out
-it leaves a rough cut like a chainsaw, not smooth like a tree pruner
-battery life is good, but it comes with just one so you can easily find yourself stuck in mid cut. A second battery is highly recommended.
-included charger is a slow charger; 6 hours if completely dead. B&D makes a fast charger for 25 bucks.
I find this tool very handy. I purchased a B&D 18V broom ($70)just to get 2 extra batteries and another charger.
without getting on a ladder that's too high for comfort. Not to mention
the amount of force needed to squeeze the handles on loppers or drag a
tree saw back and forth a jillion times. These are just the ticket. The
chain saw is at the end of a long pole, which makes it heavy, but you only
need to hold it there for a few seconds to cut through the frond or the
seed pod. I know it would be costly to have someone trim these for me,
but for a while longer I can take care of this myself and save some money.
I'm a woman, so I don't have the strength of a man, but this makes the job
possible. Would definitely recommend this tool. Once the fronds are down
on the ground, I use it to saw them to size for the recycling container.

Certainly works for me. I have multiple B&D tools using the 18 volt slide battery. Of courses the batteries run down - that's what batteries do! Read morePublished 6 months ago by Happy Amazoner

It got the job done, but is not meant for big limbs. The battery will not last long. The life of these battery's is short too.Published 7 months ago by Gremlin
