Press release   •   Jul 31, 2017 13:38 EDT

TOWSON, MD (July 31, 2017) – DEWALT® continues to expand its 20V MAX* System, totaling over 100 products, with the 20V MAX* Compact Cordless Chainsaw (DCCS620). Specifically designed for use in construction applications, the chainsaw is a versatile option for tree work, cutting timbers, or demolition on a jobsite.

The 20V MAX* Compact Chainsaw features a 12 in. Oregon® bar and chain that offers low kickback cutting in compact spaces as well as tool-free tensioning and auto-oiling. Equipped with an efficient brushless motor, the chainsaw achieves up to 90 cuts per charge using a 20V MAX* 5.0 Ah Lithium Ion battery (DCB205) on 4x4 inch pressure-treated pine wood.

At only 9 lbs. (including the DCB205), the chainsaw is lightweight and optimized for small cuts in tight spaces. The chainsaw starts with the pull of the trigger, eliminating the cold starts and carburetor issues that come with gas-powered chainsaws. Its gas-free operation also makes the 20V MAX* Chainsaw ideal for indoor cutting and demolition applications.

Available in September 2017, the Chainsaw joins the expanding 20V MAX* Outdoor Power Equipment family which already includes a 20V MAX* String Trimmer, Handheld Blower and Hedge Trimmer, and the FLEXVOLT® Outdoor Power Equipment family including the 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® String Trimmer, Handheld Blower and Chainsaw for high-power applications. DEWALT Outdoor Power tools come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money-back satisfaction guarantee.
