HART 40V Supercharge 18
HART is making a push into the high-performance battery-powered lawn care scene with its 40V Supercharge lineup, which includes a number of power-driven OPE solutions. Among them, we have the HART 40V Supercharge 18-inch Chainsaw, which tops the brand’s chainsaw lineup. We’re looking at this tool to see how it compares to HART’s other offerings.
The HART HLCS041VNM chainsaw features an 18-inch bar, giving it a total cut capacity of 32 inches. Its brushless motor ensures more power, faster cutting speed, and longer runtimes. In fact, HART tells us you can achieve up to 4X faster cutting compared to the brand’s brushed HLCS031 model.
This model is on par with 38cc gas performance, and its 40V battery-powered design also eliminates the need for gas-related fumes and maintenance.
When it’s time to recharge the battery, the kitted rapid charger will bring you back to 100% in as little as an hour.
This chainsaw has a weight of 12.7 pounds with the 6.0Ah battery included in the kit. It features an adjustable automatic chain oiler with a translucent window to keep track of your oil levels.
Additionally, onboard tool storage makes it easy to adjust your chain tension at a moment’s notice.
HART also includes a hard carrying case with this chainsaw to make storage and transport easier. It features built-in storage for your 40V battery to keep it with your chainsaw between uses.
This chainsaw retails for $348 for the kit, which includes a 6.0Ah battery, a 40V rapid charger, a scabbard, a combination wrench, and a carrying case. We’re not seeing any bare tool options at the time of writing. HART backs your purchase with a 5-year warranty for the tool and 3 years for the battery.
