GreenWorks GCS8420 80V is a model by GreenWorks which is a creation with great durability. It is easy to use and is one of the modern chainsaws.
Once you get GreenWorks 80 V I can guarantee that your opinion about battery-powered chainsaws will change. It is a leading chainsaw in its category. It has the power equivalent to 45cc gas chainsaw and when you hold it in your hands it has the same sturdy and solid feel of a gas chainsaw.
The brushless engine is a modern masterpiece which contributes to 30 percent more torque, less noise, and 70 percent less vibration. These engines use less energy which increases the time of the battery. The engine comes with a 10-year warranty which proves that brushless engines are superior in the category of engines.
The chainsaw has a 4-year warranty.
This GreenWorks chainsaw has an 18′ bar and chain, large metal bucking spikes, and an automatic chain oiling system. Ergonomics is apparent from the moment you pick up this chainsaw and grasp the metal wraparound handle.
The chainsaw is ideal for a wood that is about 14 to 18 inches thick. It is obvious that the thicker the tree, the harder it is to cut. So if you are in need of a heavy-duty cutting then I highly recommend a Husqvarna 460 Rancher.
The GreenWorks 80V chainsaw has an electronic chain brake to protect you in case of kickback.

GreenWorks GCS80420 80V GreenWorks GCS80420 80V 18-Inch Cordless Chainsaw includes 2.0AH Li-Ion Battery and Charger $217.25
This saw is capable of making up to 150 cuts on a single charge with their 2 Ah battery.
Currently, there are two batteries available and they charge super fast — under 30 minutes for the 2.0 Ah battery and under one hour for the 4.0 Ah battery. These are hefty batteries and the fact that they charge so quickly is extremely impressive.

GreenWorks : GST80320 Pro 80V String Trimmer
Talking about the disadvantages, one of them is the price of an accumulator. But I highly recommend having an extra since they will be useful when you need to cut the tree in a place without any electricity or if you want to take care of the things after an unexpected power outage. Obviously, the accumulators have to be charged beforehand.
