EGO Power+ CS1804 Cordless Chain Saw Features and Specifications
EGO Power+ CS1804 cordless chain saw is powered by a highly efficient brushless motor that spins up to 11000 RPM, ensuring gas-like performances.

One of the very important safety features is the kick-back automatic brake which stops both the motor and the chain.
Note: EGO Power+ CS1804 cordless chain saw is relatively easy to use and maintain cordless chain saw - but, it is not a toy, far from it. When the unit arrives, be sure to read the manual/Owner's Guide and to familiarize yourself with the unit. Also, if You are a beginner, it is highly recommended to start slowly with the work and to follow the instructions. Also, safety gear (goggles, helmet, gloves, etc.) is a must-have!
One of the very interesting features of the EGO Power+ CS1804 cordless chain saw is a strong LED light, which allows the user to cut accurately even in low-light conditions.
Other features are typical for the chain saw and include buckling spikes, variable speed trigger switch, front and rear handle, battery ejection mechanism, etc.

If You already own EGO Power+ 56V lithium-ion battery or batteries with the proper charger, EGO Power+ CS1800 cordless chain saw comes at a rather affordable price.
However, if You don't have EGO Power+ 56V lithium-ion battery (or batteries), EGO Power+ CS1804 cordless chain saw kit comes with a 56V 5.0Ah battery and CH2100 standard battery charger.
EGO Power+ 56V 5.0Ah battery stores enough energy to ensure up to 300 cuts of 4x4" (10.2x10.2 cm) lumber and that is a lot.
Also, note that any EGO Power+ 56V tool accepts any EGO Power+ 56V lithium-ion battery - just a few of these batteries may power a broad range of cordless tools, making any further purchase much cheaper.
EGO Power+ CS1804 cordless chain saw kit comes with EGO Power+ CH2100 standard lithium-ion 56V battery charger that is able to fully recharge 56V 5.0Ah battery in ~100 minutes.
If You have the need to charge more batteries faster, then the EGO Power+ CH5500 56-Volt Lithium-ion Rapid Charger (Amazon link, link opens in the new window) is recommended - it can fully recharge 56V 5.0Ah battery in 40-45 minutes.
EGO Power+ CS1804 cordless chain saw comes with a 5-year tool limited warranty and a 3-year battery warranty.
Long Story Short: If You are looking for a powerful and relatively lightweight cordless chain saw, consider EGO Power+ CS1804/CS1800 cordless chain saw.
It features an 18" (~45 cm) bar, strong brushless motor, 56V battery, LED flashlight, comfortable handles, variable speed trigger switch, and other features that ensure gas-like performances.
