Ecological Attributes

Using an electric tool generates significantly fewer greenhouse gases (GHGs) and air pollutants than a conventional model using gasoline. Also, the use of a plug instead of a battery reduces the impacts associated with its production and end-of-life.

I am looking for a replacement chain for my 16 inch electric saw. It appears to be an Oregon chain, but can't find the proper number. Do I need pitch, tooth size, etc? I found these 2 numbers #31202403 and 91PJ056X. What else do I need. Cheers!

Asked by: Moggy1970
You just need the bar length, pitch and gauge of chain . So 16" and 3/8" gauge and not sure of the pitch of that saw chain though. To learn more check out Husky chainsaw site at https://www.husqvarna.com/nz/forest/when-working/maintenance/chainsaw-chain-guide/ or go look at the world's largest wood site called Arboristsite https://www.arboristsite.com/

I ended up buying the 16 inch electric Kobalt chainsaw but they were out of stock so i took  the store demo, no manual. Can you tell me about how much and what kind of oil to put in the oil reservoir

Asked by: Anonymous
Use chainsaw bar oil. Any brand will do. There are usually 2 weights of bar oil, Summer and Winter. Summer oil is thicker and Winter oil is thinner. That's it. You will also need a couple chainsaw files to resharpen the chain from time to time. If you see it cutting smallish sawdust then it's time to resharpen to send chips flying again. I think its a 3/8" size chain. Good luck and wear your PPE.

It is my understanding that the chainsaw listed here is electric 110V plug-in, and not battery powered. In the question and answer bellow, there is reference to the added weight of a battery pack. Please provide clarification.Thank you

Asked by: DanX
Yes, that particular chainsaw is electric 110V plug-in only. It does not have an option to work from battery pack.

I have a relatively new Kobalt Electric Chainsaw model 2001203; used it a bit to cut cedar trees and branches of a tree. Suddenly the saw does not start when pushing both buttons. It is lubricated normally; bar and chain are clean. What is the problem?

Asked by: Leokut
Good Morning, We suggest as follows : 1.) try a different power cord and source 2.) disconnect from electrical cord, open chain side cover and clean out debris If those do not work suggest to return to store Thank you

Can you put a 12 inch bar, and chain on a 16 in chainsaw. Instead of buying two chainsaws, would like to know if this is possible

Asked by: pete5416
Hello there, Yes you can use a 12 inch bar on a 16 inch chainsaw. You can use smaller bars on chainsaws, but you cannot use larger bars (i.e. 18in bar on 12 in chainsaw).

Where is the serial number located on this chainsaw?

Asked by: fkpc
Hello there, the serial number would be located on the Kobalt Danger/Warning label in a white strip starting with 3 letter, followed by seven digits and a date code. This label would be on top the motor.

Kobalt Corded Electric Chainsaw 12A 16-in Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of power for cheap This saw paid for itself in one use, Ive been using a gas chain saw for years, they always have issues. I tried electric because my odd jobs are usually small. First time I used this saw I cut 5 tree's, about 10-12" diameter trunks and 30 foot tall. This saw didnt skip a beat, cut up the main trunk like it was nothing and all of the branches into manageable sizes. Having an extension cord wasnt much of a hassle as the work was on my property. Chain that it came with still seems perfectly fine, setup and adjustment was easy, barely uses any bar oil, I propbably used 400ml cutting these trees. To be honest I want to buy another before they raise the price or discontinue it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value I bought this saw about a month ago to clear some large branches (2-6” dia) and also to cut a couple of 10”-12” dia tree stumps to ground level (one was cherry and the other oak). Did a great job on both. Taking the chain off to inspect and clean afterwards was straight forward and putting things back to gether and getting correct tension on the chain was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value Purchased this model chainsaw today and so far it's worked out well had to do quite a bit of branch clearing and I am pleased with the purchase if you are doing trimming of bigger branches go for the 16 or 18 in model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Agréablement surpris J'ai coupé un bouleau de 35 pieds de haut avec le tronc de 9 pouces de diamètre sans problème. En environ 30 min, il était coupé et ébranché. Je suis satisfait de cet achat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Belle acquisition J'ai acheté cette scie électrique après une tempête de vent où plusieurs arbres sont tombés sur mon terrain. Elle est facile à manier, légère et silencieuse. Sa puissance est excellente même avec les gros troncs. Je me sentais en sécurité aussi. Rapport qualité/prix : excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and good performance! Just purchased this chainsaw a couple of days ago to cut some big wood logs. It works very well. Can not believe how powerful and sharp it is. One advice for new user is: fasten the nob to hold the rod very tight just to make sure the chain never goes off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased in 2020 to clean up my over grown trees and I’m impressed by the Kobalt 16” cutting and overall performance.
