This is the new Dewalt DCCS623, a 20V Max compact cordless chainsaw designed for quick and easy pruning tasks.
The Dewalt cordless pruning chainsaw features a brushless motor and 8″ bar.
Dewalt says their new chainsaw is ideal for trimming branches from downed trees, cutting bundles of wood or branches, managing thick brush, or daily pruning needs.
It has a compact design for easy access in tight spaces, and is lightweight at just 4.6 lbs (tool-only). Dewalt says that the saw is 61% lighter and 3X more compact compared to their DCCS620 12″ compact cordless chainsaw (reviewed here).
Features include an integrated tip guard, auto-oiling, tool-free tensioning.
The DCCS623 pruning chainsaw can make up to 70 cuts per charge on 4″ x 4″ pressure-treated pine when powered by a DCB230 compact 3Ah battery.
Price: $180 (DCCS623B, tool-only), $230 (DCCS623L1, kit)
The kit comes with a charger and compact 3Ah battery.
While not the first compact cordless pruning chainsaw, the new Dewalt looks to be reasonable spec’ed.
61% lighter than the compact 12″ chainsaw? That seems like a lot. This just might do the trick for lighter duty and smaller capacity cutting tasks.
The kit seems aggressively priced, at just $230. $180 for the bare tool also seems reasonable.
In contrast, the new Milwaukee M18 Fuel Hatchet 8″ pruning chainsaw, one of several new Milwaukee cordless outdoor power tools that are launching soon, is priced at $279 (via Tool Nut, via Acme Tools) for just the bare tool.
Thank you to Big Richard for putting this on my radar!
