Dewalt Cordless Chainsaw Review

With batteries finding their way into more and more high-draw power tools, it’s no surprise to see Dewalt re-imagining the chainsaw to include a brushless 54V motor, powered by XR FlexVolt batteries.

But is this just a gimmick to demonstrate the efficiency of the 54V brushless motors, or are there clear benefits to the DCM575? In our guide, we’ll look at what the DCM575 cordless chainsaw is capable of, and why having a cordless chainsaw could be the safer, cleaner option in 2020.

Watch our demo video of the DCM575 here on Toolstop TV:

DCM575 Dewalt 54V Chainsaw Review

The first time you see the DCM575, you’re struck by how compact it is. The footprint genuinely is diminutive, however, that’s balanced by how rugged it looks. Full, rubberised over-mold on all the parts you’re in contact with means it’s comfortable in the hand. And then you look at the bar: a full, 40cm Oregon bar and chain! This is a chainsaw that isn’t going to be messing aboutThe brushless motor rotates the chain at 15m/s, which itself is automatically oiled, ensuring a smooth, hassle-free cut. Should any adjustment be needed to the bar, this is easy due to the tool-free bar fitment. The process is quick, accurate and can be taken care of with gloves on.

In the kit, you’ll find a 54V XR FlexVolt battery with 3.2Ah of charge capacity when slotted into the DCM575. What’s the runtime like? Dewalt states that the DCM575 will comfortably give you 130 4″x4″ cuts per charge.

One point that’s worth making is to make sure the battery is out of the chainsaw when it’s not in use. This will prevent any accidental triggering of it.

All About the Dewalt DCM575

A key benefit, straight out of the box, is no pull start, no filling up with fuel, and a variable speed trigger. The ease of use is incredible; slot in the battery and you’re ready to go. And when you release that trigger, the chains stop immediately.

On top of that is the noise. Or rather, the lack of it! With no petrol-driven motor running, it’s a quiet beast to use, with one reviewer making that point that you can use the chainsaw and still talk to people on site, which can help in terms of safety.

DeWALT DCM575 54v Cordless Chainsaw – How Does it Perform?

We were very impressed with how effortlessly it performed when we filmed our review video. And we were intrigued by what one reviewer said (see the reviews of the DCM575 here):

“I’ve bought the chain saw just to cut small logs but this weekend I’ve been at my sister’s cutting two forty-five footers down to half way and it blew me away due to the ease of use, no messing about.

In summary, if you’re looking for a clean, hassle-free chainsaw that performs, then the DCM575 is certainly worth considering. It’s available on Toolstop Finance, get it here.
