The EGO does not leak oil while sitting or while working.
I guess its pretty close to all-around perfect by design

... and a damn Headlight too

My friend thought the built-in light would be a gimmicky/sketchy kind of thing.
He was wrong
It didn't flicker or dim one bit while cutting
On high its really more light than you need and you're just showing off doing that. lol

He was flabbergasted by the whole experience of a serious battery saw

"...The metal adapter piece is the only thing special and it will interchange into any of the other bars , with just one phillips screw.

The 12" Craftsman bar, 14" EGO bar, and 18" EGO bar will all interchange just by adding - or removing - the adapter..."


Thanks for that info !

Hey, you could have a shorter, lighter saw, but with all the power & other features of the CS1800 saw. And, if you use a 2.5Ah batt, it would be even lighter, but still have plenty of power, just for fewer cuts.

Sounds like a Musclecar to me. Big power, in a smaller, lighter package. I like it !

Gonna definitely keep this in mind.

I was a little off on the chain speed numbers i posted earlier.
Here are the real numbers i had posted way earlier in this thread previously.

EGO 18" 56v = 30.2 mps or 99 feet per sec {11,000 rpm motor shaft}

Echo 16" 58v = 22.5 mps or 74 feet per sec

EGO 14" & 16" 56v = 20 mps or 66 feet per sec {6800 rpm motor shaft}

WEN 16" 40v = 15 mps or 49 feet per sec

KingKobalt 80volt must be around 110+ feet per sec
It's noticeably a bit faster than the 99fps EGO running them side-by-side.

By the pound =
18" Kobalt 80v with 5.0 batt = 17 lbs

18" EGo 56v with 2.5 batt = 12.2 lbs
""""""""""""""with 5.0 batt = 14 lbs

18" EGo with 14" Bar&Chain and 2.5 batt = 11.8 lbs

The EGO will be real versatile with the different batteries and different bars.
.. oh and the Headlight

I don't really need the 20volt Craftsman 12" at all, but for $45 just can't say no to it.
And i think it looks good too.
Putting a 14" bar on it and will let it do as much as it can handle.

Default 40v Kobalt 12" Bar

Got my recall replacement saw body. Will post pics tomorrow.

I wanna buy a new 12" bar for it. Don't want a 14" or 16".

Trying to find the cheapest decent 12" bar that will work. The chain is 3/8" low profile, .050 gauge, with 45 drive links, and the bar mount looks to be the AO41 style. .

Been looking online. To me, it LOOKS like the 12" Dewalt bar will work. I have one I can try.

https://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-1...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

Also looks like this Oregon 120DGEA041 bar will work.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Oregon-120D...75.c1#viTabs_0

https://www.amazon.com/Oregon-120DGE.../dp/B001SCU3GK

How about this Husky bar ?

https://www.amazon.com/Husqvarna-531.../dp/B004MW3PZY

Here's an Oregon bar/chain combo. But I've got 5 chains coming. Don't need the chain.

https://www.amazon.com/Oregon-27792-.../dp/B000R8BDGA

Anybody know which of these will work & which won't, & which is the best and/or cheapest ?

Any other decent choices worth mentioning ?

Are you certain the saw calls for .050 chain gauge ?
Or is that just the size of the new chains you ordered ?

The Kobalt 12" replacement bar is .043 gauge @ $20
Most of the smaller saws are .043
But yours is a 40volt

I'd go for the Husqvarna bar if .050 was usable.
The colors are better than the others

"...Are you certain the saw calls for .050 chain gauge ?..."

That's what my search turned up, when I needed my 1st replacement chain for it. An Oregon s45 or 91PX045G was recommended. I didn't see much difference. So I ordered the s45. Easier to remember. Worked just fine. But it's getting pretty dull now.

https://www.oregonproducts.com/en/pa...%5D.value=true

https://www.loggerchain.com/Kobalt-5...-Kobalt-12.htm

https://www.amazon.com/Oregon-Chains.../dp/B00O2DKZK6

But, I'm glad you mentioned it. Looks like the Dewalt 12" does take the .043 chain. Oregon 90PX045G or R45.

https://www.oregonproducts.com/en/pa...%5D.value=true

So, if the Kobalt will accept the Dewalt bar, I suppose I'd need the .043 chain.

I just pulled up a forum where they said you could run the .050 chain on the .043 bar. That don't sound right. I don't have a clue.

"...A regular . 325 050 chain WILL work fine in a narrow kerf bar. You just can't do it the other way (i.e. run a narrow kerf chain on a regular bar)..."

Likewise, I suppose that if the Dewalt saw will accept the Kobalt bar, I'd need the .050 chain. Might see if that will work & how it cuts, when the new chains come in.

Have read that some small saws use the .043 bar/chain so that it will take less power to cut thru the wood. But, the Kobalt seems to cut OK, with the .050 chains.

Hey, it's just another of the many things I didn't know about chainsaws.

Oh well, at least I now I know a little more than I did before I started all this.
