  • Common Questions


    Is the other saws going to catch on fire after 5 minutes of use, as my first one did?


    I think they're designed to burst into flames at the 3 minute mark so yours may be malfunctioning.


    How long does the battery last after fully charged?


    It depends on what you are cutting and the load you put on the saw, it will shut down if you don't want the battery to heat up.


    Is it possible to swap the saw bars from a 16" to 14" or from a 16" to 18"?


    It has the standard bar like most chainsaws with 2 bolts and sprocket that chain goes over.


    What is the difference between the xcu03z and xcu04z?


    I believe one is brushless and the other is not. Do your research and don't waste time.


    Do they have a case for it?


    I haven't found the right one for my saw yet, so you will have to purchase a 3 party case.
