Black and Decker GKC3630L 36v Cordless Chainsaw 300mm
Always make sure your oil is topped up & your chain is tensioned correctly. This will ensure your chain life is extended & more importantly is operating safely.
Remember Chainsaws are dangerous. Do not attempt to use one if you have not fully read the instructions, are confident in the correct use & have adequate safety equipment & clothing.
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.

Excellent product cutting easily through well established hawthorn and Hazel trees, and great service too
I tentatively bought the first one of these second hand as I already had some 36v batteries [with a leaf blower] and the batteries are a significant cost in any battery powered tool system and of course they are never interchangeable between makes [despite the core lithium-ion cells being in the core of the different brands being essentially identical in design]. Sufficiently happy with the first that I bought this second new one so that there is always a back up available if problems, chain becomes blunt and now have a quiver of batteries with 3 chargers. Important to ensure chain is at correct tension as it can readily jump off the drive sprockets and blade track but this is very easy to do sort at any moment without any additional tools needed. The blade runs on passively after releasing the trigger and no safety bar to stop the chain immediately - but this is not really an issue in a battery powered low-torque tool as compared to any petrol counterpart. I really like the lack of din of not relying on a combustion engine - and I believe that this to be a safety feature in itself.
First one supplied leaked all it's oil - quite a mess. Shipped back to TooledUp who refunded immediately, though then the replacement was out of stock for a while. Meanwhile I had to use my old corded B&D one on quite a big job. No doubt that it's a meatier tool, but the cordless one is so much lighter and more convenient. I use the 36v battery across strimmer and hedge trimmer. Bit surprised that the spikey metal grip is now plastic, but seems to work fine.
Small and moderately powered lithium battery chainsaw. Battery discharges rapidly but nicely made and light weight. Nice piece of equipment.
For a home user this a brilliant piece of equipment and well up to the job. Light and easy to use, good safety and cutting ability. So glad we bought it
Good value for money. Glad I got the 36v. It appears to use a lot of chain oil but as I have not had a chain saw before it may be not an unusual amount. Build quality appears o.k.
Quick delivery, charged battery, works great, cuts through 7 inch tree with no problems, very impressed
Very impressed with the saw. It does more than I expected and works for longer. Would not consider a petrol machine for our (large) garden. This machine goes well with other 36v garden machinery. Service from Tooled Up also excellent.
Only had this machine for a couple of weeks so can't at this point give 5 stars all round thus the four stars. However, so far it has been great to use without all the hassles and noise of a petrol chainsaw. There is trade off in the power but for the works that I carry out in the garden it is ideal.
Bought to replace my old mains 12inch B&D chainsaw. This battery version clearly wins as no trailing leads etc but does lose in terms of its power. The battery version does a great job lopping branches up to 10cm diameter but struggles with branches bigger than this. The build quality looks very good, with a nice oregon chain and bar and the 'no tools' chain tensioning a big plus. Battery life is reasonable (around 30min continuous use for me) and charging is quite fast but a second battery would be ideal if longer jobs are planned. So far so good and hope it matches the 30 years my old B&D chain saw lasted.
Very pleased with this product. Good, efficient cutting and light and easy to handle. A full charge can easily provide two wheelbarrow loads of small logs for a wood burning stove. We already had the Black & Decker 36V strimmer (also very good), so quite advantageous to share the two batteries. A bit plasticky, probably wouldn't stand up to professional use, but fine for domestic purposes.
Pleasantly surprised at the performance, obviously cannot be compared to a powerful petrol chainsaw, but is really convenient for any small jobs. Light to handle, just switch on and go. i got a second battery and because of the short charge time it is possible to get virtually continuous use. only reservation i have is there is no chain brake,perhaps less necessary with a cordless electric saw.
A solid bit of kit.When first used i thought this is a bit limp compared to my corded chainsaw but nevertheless it cut a full wheelbarrow of 3 inch logs on less than half a charge. chainsaws can be dangerous to use but with this one i felt very very safe and would not argue if my wife wanted to use it! at my suggestion one of my buddies bought one as well and he is still talking to me !.
Just purchased this chain saw and at the moment i am very impressed. Have been cutting 3" fence stobs and branches from a felled beech tree and have averaged around 100 cuts per charge. To early to verify reliability but first impressions are brilliant. Quiet, light ,quick battery charge time and no fumes.
I have used this for a couple of weeks and was expecting to be disappointed, but i was pleasantly surprised with the performance. I have 3 batteries and it lasts long enough for what i need - e.G a whole afternoon in the woods. I cut through a couple of 18 inch chestnut logs without a problem. You don't get the fumes or the noise which is a great bonus, and it does not seem as dangerous as a petrol chainsaw due to the lower power. I would definitely recommend for occasional or light chainsaw users, if you want more, get more batteries.
The reason I went for this chain saw was that I already have a strimmer and hedge trimmer using the same battery so I now have 4 batteries. The build quality is a bit weak but it will do the job and is a lot quieter than a petrol unit. No two stroke fuel to mix and sore arms trying to start it.
It has proven useful but not as powerful as I'd hoped for. OK for little bits of pruning but that's about all.
This chainsaw, whch I have had for a couple of weeks, has mostly pluses, but a few cons. If it is bought for light work it is excellent. I used it for the branches of fallen trees while the trunks were cut with a petrol chainsaw. Not having a cord of an electric saw or the weight of a petrol one to worry about among branches was really useful. Unless there is only a half hour's work to do, a second or more batteries are essential, with ideally one charging all of the time. They need to be changed when there is just one green light left on the battery as the power falls away. Hence my three stars for value for money as an already expensive chainsaw is made more so with another battery. The chain itself is very good, though like any it has to be sharpened when needed as a saw is generally only as good as its chain. Youtube has lots of clips of how to sharpen if needed. The cons I have found concern the chain oil. It is pretty hungry for oil and the reservoir has to be watched and topped up often. The other thing is the oil leaks, so the cardboard lined shelf where I keep the saw is now soaked in oil. I am hoping this is to do with newness and it will stop at some point. As usual, Tooled-up's service was excellent.
Very disappointed as the run time is about 15 minutes and this is with soft wood. Would have preferred my money back but the supplier stepped back and said nothing to do with us as this is a technical issue--contact B&D under warranty. B&D suggested charging and re-charging may increase run time. So far there is little improvement. B&D have offered to have the product tested by its warranty agent. The problem is that performance data is difficult to translate into reality. It may be that I expect too much based on sales advertising hype. However other reviewers seem pleased. My use is domestic and have used chainsaws for decades. My ten year old Bosch cable chainsaw has amazing performance but the cable is always a problem--especially up a tree! I also have a B&D battery hedge trimmer which is fantastic---I am worn out before the battery discharges. Welcome any feed back as it seems I may be stuck with a very expensive mistake.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Does this chain saw come already filled with oil.
A : Hi Jean, chain oil is not included so you will probably want to purchase some at the same time if you don't already have some.
Q : I have an older B&D strimmer with a 36v lion rechargeable battery similar to this. It is a BL2036 battery not BL20362. Is this interchangeable with this chainsaw?
A : I can confirm that your Black and Decker 36v Li-ion battery will be compatible with this chainsaw.
