Electric chainsaws have always been clean and quiet, but they’ve generally
lacked the brawn of their gas-powered brethren. The Oregon PowerNow CS250E
40-volt Max cordless chainsaw shatters these shop-worn stereotypes, delivering a
powerful, muscular performance with every cut. The PowerNow is equipped with a
long-lasting lithium-ion endurance battery pack and a tough 14-inch bar. As a
result, the PowerNow can power through logs as large as 10 to 12 inches, or trim
up to 250 2- to 3-inch branches nonstop on a single charge. 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.
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 at just under 11 pounds, the PowerNow is easy to wield
whether you’re cutting a tree trunk below you or a tree branch above.
More importantly, the PowerNow 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 battery pack holds its charge for months
at a time when inactive, so the PowerNow 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.
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.
