DEWALT DCCS690M1 4AH 40V Brushless Chains couples the speed of the gas chainsaw and efficiency of the cordless. So far, the battery powered chainsaw is preferred to both gas and electric powered chainsaw. Gas chainsaw is associated with immense noise and environmental pollution through the fumes excreted when using them.
Electric chainsaw on the other hand, is limited by their extension cords and it is quite tedious having to deal with the extension cord. Battery chainsaw is the future of chainsaws as they do not need the extension and most importantly; they are quiet, lightweight and require no maintenance.
DELWALT 40V MAX Lithium Ion XR gives the performance of gas with the efficiency of cordless. Since it is equipped with a low kick back and a powerful brushless motor, it glides through different varieties of cutting diameters at an encouraging high speed.
The attached battery, is both durable and reliable. To make it even more efficient, the equipment contains auto-oiling LubriLink and a Lubriwell to deliver fine and smooth cuts. Apart from that, the oiling system attached ensures a durable and lifelong chain.
A quarter-turn oil cap incorporated, articulates properly to bring about a quick oil refilling process. Operating this equipment is much simplified by the free-tool tension system provided. You’ll never have to look for other additional tools elsewhere, as every essential tool is found on board.
Minor and major accidents that are brought about by careless operation of the machines is also reduced; the equipment contains chain break for kick back protection, together with a variable speed trigger to help in the control of the cutting speed.

Features of the DEWALT DCCS690M1 4AH 40V Brushless Chainsaw
- Brushless motor: brushless motor characteristically delivers high performance and longer runtime as compared to their brushed motor tools counterparts. Brushless motor is also associated with lower maintenance requirements as there are no carbon brushes to wear down.
- LubriLink and Lubriwell: automatic lubrication of the chain is enabled by the Lubrilink and Lubriwell to enhance smooth cuts, prolong the chain life and reduce the maintenance cost. LubriLink are cavities in chain tie straps that help in holding oil while LubriWell are holes located on the chain drive that carries the oil around the bar for lubrication.
- Tool-free tensioning: this helps in the adjustments of the bar and chain. The chain usually loosens up when using the chainsaw, hence it is advisable to frequently tighten the chain for smoother and efficient cuts.
- Oil refilling: the chainsaw has a quarter-turn oil cap for faster oil refills. It also comes with a window that you can use to examine the level of the oil and see if it needs refilling.
- 16 inch bar and chain: the bar and the chain are made from Oregon. This ensures high speed while cutting and at the same time minimizes vibration and noise.
- Item dimensions: the chainsaw measures 9.4” X 36” X 9.3”. DEWALT DCCS690M1 4AH 40V Brushless Chainsaw weighs 18.4 pounds.
- 4Ah battery: the saw uses Lithium ion battery which comes with a charger. This allows for longer life, greater efficiency and minimized noise. The saw is compatible with 40V Li-Ion system that has a variety of tools to choose from.
- The chainsaw is ideal for a noise sensitive areas or properties.
- The chainsaw is associated with low maintenance cost as it is powered by brushless motor.
- It has a chain brake for kick back protection.
- It has an automatic lubrication mechanism with an oil level indicator to alert you on oil usage.
- Has a tool free chain tensioning mechanism.
- It’s lightweight, hence easy to use and carry around.
- It has a higher efficiency as compared to the gas chainsaws.
Questions and Answers
Q: How does the LubriLink and LubriWell work?
A: LubriLink are cavities in chain tie straps that help in holding oil while LubriWell are holes located on the chain drive that carries the oil around the bar for lubrication.
