The OREGON PowerNow CS250S6 40V Max* Chainsaw Kit with Standard Battery Pack is a lithium ion battery-powered chainsaw that delivers a combination of performance and features that makes it a true alternative to many gas-powered chainsaws. For removing trees, cleaning up after a storm, pruning large branches or clearing debris from property, you can depend on the OREGON PowerNow 40V MAX* Chainsaw. The OREGON PowerNow Chainsaw, with its lithium ion battery pack, offers instant starting without a pull cord, powerful cutting with no-fade power, and long runtime. It is a smarter, quieter way to work free from the hassles of gasoline or cords. When not in use, the lithium ion battery pack holds a charge for months at a time, so the PowerNow Chainsaw is ready when you are. Equipped with a 14-inch bar, the PowerNow Chainsaw can power through logs as large as 10 to 12-inches. For smaller cuts, the CS250S6 chainsaw goes non-stop, cutting up to 125 two to three inch branches on a single charge. This performance may vary with user technique, chain sharpness, size and type of wood. The PowerNow Chainsaw is much quieter than gas-powered chainsaws in use and is silent between cuts. At 11 pounds, the PowerNow Chainsaw is lightweight, easily portable and offers ergonomic comfort. Not only is the PowerNow Chainsaw powerful, but it is free from the hassles of gasoline or power cords. The PowerNow Chainsaw starts instantly with the pull of a trigger – no pull cords, no gas, and no warm-up times. The PowerNow Chainsaw features the PowerSharp built-in chain sharpening system so you’ll never cut with a dull chain again. When the chain dulls, simply pull the PowerSharp lever for 3 to 5 seconds with the saw running and the chain will work like new. The OREGON PowerNow CS250S6 Chainsaw Kit features the 1.25Ah B500S 40V MAX* Battery Pack. The B500S has no memory effect, charge maintenance and full discharge is NOT necessary to retain consistent capacity throughout the life of the battery. A completely discharged B500S battery pack will take approximately 60 minutes to charge. (*Fully charged battery voltage measured without a workload is 40 volts. Nominal voltage is 37)
Electric chainsaws have always been clean and quiet, but they've generally lacked the brawn of their gas-powered brethren. The Oregon PowerNow CS250-S6 40-volt Max cordless chainsaw shatters these shop-worn stereotypes, delivering a powerful, muscular performance with every cut. With its tough 14-inch bar, the PowerNow can power through logs as large as 10 to 12 inches, or cut up to 125 to 250 2- to 3-inch branches nonstop on a single charge depending on standard or endurance battery. Whether you're removing trees, cleaning up after a storm, pruning large branches, or clearing debris from property, the PowerNow chainsaw is up to the challenge.
Part of Oregon's PowerNow 40-volt Max battery platform, the CS250-S6 trimmer comes with a standard battery pack (1.25 Ah) -- providing up to 60 minutes of continuous use -- as well as a charger. It's also available in a model with an extended battery pack (2.4 Ah) as well as a version without a battery pack or charger -- a great option if you've already purchased a 40-volt Max battery (or several batteries) with other Oregon cordless tools.
Power Without the Hassle
The PowerNow chainsaw starts instantly with the pull of a trigger: no frustrating pull cords, no messy gas cans, and no slow warm-up times. The chainsaw is also much quieter than gas-powered chainsaws, and is completely silent between cuts. And weighing at 11 pounds (with optional standard battery pack), the CS250-S6 chainsaw is easy to wield whether you're cutting a tree trunk below you or a tree branch above.
More importantly, the CS250-S6 offers these hassle-free benefits without sacrificing an ounce of power. The chainsaw cuts with no-fade strength, so you can keep cutting with the same intensity even as the battery drains to a quarter charge or less. Plus, the lithium-ion PowerNow 40-volt Max battery pack holds its charge for months at a time when inactive, so the CS250-S6 chainsaw is ready when you are. You can also keep additional PowerNow battery packs on hand for bigger jobs, as the interchangeable packs swap out in seconds.
Sharp and Safe
The chainsaw comes with a built-in PowerSharp chain sharpening system, so you'll never cut with a dull chain again. When the chain starts to lose its edge, simply pull the PowerSharp lever for three to five seconds with the saw running and the chain will work like new.
To protect you while cutting, the PowerNow includes such features as a built-in safety chain brake, a low kickback chain/guide bar, a safety trigger interlock, and a patent-pending control board with overload and heat protection.

I had the opportunity to sample this saw recently and I must say it is excellent.
The saw itself is very light in comparison to my Stihl. I found myself climbing up my ladder with it off, setting up under the branch I wanted to cut, pressing in the safety and then the trigger and quickly cutting what I needed.
I like that the saw is not continuously running. It is safer while walking with it and especially when among a brush pile where one can trip up easily.
I practice "self - preservation" so I try to work smart and avoid accidents with power tools, especially chain saws. I never like walking with a running saw, you trip up and that is when issues can occur. My comfort level with this tool was such that I could lift the saw above my head frequently to cut high branches, the weight was nice and after cutting I would release the trigger thus stopping the chain. With my gas saw I am always nervous about doing this and possibly bringing the saw down onto my leg while the chain is spinning. A heavy saw comes down quicker and you fatigue after using it but I really feel comfortable doing MORE work with the battery saw as when you release the trigger it is off and thus safe.
Because you power it on only when you need it, the battery life was very good. I cut all that I set out to cut and had power to spare. I had two batteries and worked with one for approximately an hour before swapping to the second. I cut a lot with battery 1 and was very happy with the performance.
One surprise bonus is the noise level being so much less with this tool, you do not have the constant drone and buzz of a gas saw.
The day I cut was a summer day near a lake where sound travels and people tend to be relaxing on vacation. This saw is not intrusive and I never felt guilty for getting work done in a densely populated area of summer cottages. Mental fatigue is lessened too because you are not working with all that noise. While cutting I had a partner with me helping, It was nice being able to communicate while working. With no continuous back-round noise it was easier to talk and plan cuts and what we wanted to trim.
The durability of the saw, the build quality, and the way it could cut is fantastic. I started cutting 2" and 4" limbs and then worked up to larger 4" and 6" and larger. Eventually I was so pleased with the tool that I tackled a 10" pine and dropped it with ease.
I expected it to be a pruning saw, what I found was that it could do much more and easily could replace my Stihl for 90% of the jobs I do. Only when a large tree 12" + needs to be dropped or cut up would I now feel the need to break out the gas saw. Everything else this battery saw can handle and handle nicely.
I tried the easy to use quick sharpen feature once in the middle of my 2 hours of work. I loved it. It worked ....Nuff said,
In short, if you want to make quick work of cutting and trimming around your house....doing preventative maintenance rather than waiting for storms to take down limbs and branches, then this saw is for you. It is much faster, cleaner and quieter to use than a gas saw so you won't wait to do work, you can grab it and go, cut and be done with ease.
We used it to cut through a variety of wood, ranging from branches less than an inch thick, to a fallen spruce tree 14 inches in diameter. The power was sufficient to pull the PowerSharp (3/8 inch low profile) chain through almost anything we asked, as long as we let the saw do the work.
Battery powered saws are not for everyone. If you cut big timber, like to lean on your saw, or expect high revs, they are not for you. If you do occasional cutting, need a grab-and-go saw for maintenance tasks, don't want to (or can't) store gasoline, this is one you should definitely look at.
The saw is much quieter than a gas chainsaw; about as loud as an electric reciprocating saw. The noise stops when you are not actually cutting. There are no 2-cycle fumes. There is no pulling of a starter rope or the frustration of a hard-to-start saw. No gasoline to buy, mix, store, or dispose of.
It is too early to comment on battery life. As with any battery operated tool, work stops while the battery is recharging, so you should plan you work accordingly, or consider an additional battery for extended cutting.
I have been pleased with the PowerSharp chain on other saws, so I expect similar results on this one.
EDIT: I have been using this saw now for almost 2-1/2 years and have had a very positive experience with it.
EDIT 2: This saw has been replaced with a newer model (CS300) that has a faster, more powerful, brushless motor, and a slightly longer bar. The batteries and charger are the same for both saws. The improvement is noticeable, especially if used side-by-side. I continue to use both saws and am happy with their performance (February, 2016).
