Unique Features

DEWALT is known for installing exclusive features into each tool they produce. Here the unique features found in the DCCS670X1.

Brushless Motor

Brushless motors are costlier than brushed motors but are perfect for frequent users.

In the DCCS670X1, the brushless motor eliminates heat more efficiently, allowing operators to run the chainsaw for extended periods and infrequent breaks.

It also experiences fewer maintenance problems than standard brushed motors. The DCCS670X1 is a tool that’s ready to rock when you are.

Sharable Battery

The 60V Max battery pack that comes with the DCCS670X1 is compatible with several of DEWALT’s cordless power tools.

Best of all, the battery automatically adjusts voltage based on the tool it’s plugged into.

It can recharge on a 20V battery charger and supply longer-lasting power to lower-voltage power tools in the DEWALT 20V and 60V family.

 

Performance, Design, and Safety

In this section, we’ll describe how the DCCS670X1 performs, its design qualities, and its safety features.

Performance

Everything about the DCCS670X1 shouts excellence, from its deep-reaching 16-inch bar and chain link to its long-lasting 60V battery.

The DCCS670X1’s battery pack delivers up to 70 cuts per charge through boards 6 x 6-inch boards.

With a pull of the trigger, the DCCS670X1 immediately begins working.

Revving the motor up to its maximum speed delivers an astounding 25.2 feet-per-second cutting speed to do easy work out of felling 14-inch thick trunks in a single pass.

Design

Cordless power tools are known for many things, the most prominent of which is maximum portability.

Without power cords to tie users down, the DCCS670X1 travels uninhibited into the wilderness and slices through tree branches and trunks without engine troubles.

Electric chainsaws bypass ignition troubles associated with gas-guzzling models.

As soon as you pull the throttle, the DCCS670X1 kicks into life to begin the cutting process. There’s no such thing as cold-engine troubles with this bad boy.

Safety

Equipped with a low-kickback chain and bar, the DCCS670X1 reduces the risk of freak accidents when pushing the cutting chain across thick slabs of wood.

The inertia chain brake ensures that the operator has full control over his or her safety by stopping the chain on demand.

 

Ease of Maintenance, Repairs & Warranty

Let’s spend a few moments going over common maintenance problems and the manufacturer’s three-year limited warranty.

Ease of Maintenance and Repairs

Cordless chainsaws, especially those fitted with brushless motors, hardly ever experience maintenance issues. The most common fixing users need to do is tightening the chain.

The DCCS670X1 uses a tool-less tensioning system where users turn a dial to loosen the bar and tighten the chain.

The auto-lubricant feeding system ensures that the chain is adequately oiled and ready to cut through thick trunks. Just make sure to top off the oil tank before pulling the trigger.

Warranty

DEWALT’s warranty covers three years of fixing and replacing defective components due to manufacturing problems.

There’s also a one-year free-of-charge repairing service for minor maintenance problems resulting from normal wear and tear.

The warranty does not cover the 60V battery pack or DCCS670X1s that have been modified in any way.

Price of DEWALT DCCS670X1

There’s no point beating around the bush. The DCCS670X1s is not a cheap chainsaw, especially by cordless-electric chainsaw standards.

The benefit of owning this tool is it allows you to share its battery pack with other DEWALT tools in the 20V and 60V family.

If this is unimportant to you, perhaps the Remington RM1425 Limb N Trim would be a better fit.
