Product Details

Mountfield MC48Li Freedom48 Cordless Chainsaw

Enjoy the simplicity of cordless power in this powerful, light weight, hard working Mountfield MC48Li chain saw. Hailed as being revolutionary in home woodcutting, this cordless chain saw will make those jobs around the garden easier than ever before.

The high-tech powerful 48v Lithium-Ion battery powers a super efficient "DigiTorq" brushless motor, built to be durable and efficient, and offering you all the power you need to get those gardening jobs done. With a cordless chain saw you can say goodbye to all the hassle of a petrol machine, with no mixing of fuels, filling up the tank and those choking fumes to worry you, no wonder cordless power is fast becoming the nation's favourite power supply for garden machinery.

Lithium-Ion technology is really bringing gardening into the 21st century, albeit kicking and screaming! If you thought that battery powered tools couldn't keep up with the petrol models then you are sure to be pleasantly surprised to learn that not only will they easily keep up, power-wise, but they offer the user so many extra features and state-of-the-art updates that it will be hard to remember what you ever saw in your old petrol or electric chain saw.

Starting this Mountfield MC48Li chain saw is easier than you can imagine! Simply push the start button and hold the drive trigger and away you go. You can enjoy a rather impressive 50 minutes run time thanks to the 48v/4 amp lithium-ion battery, which is equal to about 150 cuts through 4" logs. Enjoy complete freedom in your garden, or anywhere else you need to work, free from extension cables, or an electricity supply.

Safety and user comfort is always at the top of Mountfield's list. This is why you will find that the Oregon chain and bar can be simply adjusted, and the chain is automatically lubricated from the oil reservoir, and by simply making the oil reservoir translucent you can easily ensure it never runs dry.

This Mountfield MC48Li chain saw offers you an electric hand brake, a hand guard and a quick release trigger to ensure ultimate user safety and confidence whilst you are working. If you've ever used an electric chain saw you will soon wonder how you ever coped with those heart stopping moments when you almost cut through the electrical wire! Hopefully, with the new cordless range of garden machinery from Mountfield those moments will be left behind in the past, where they belong! 

So what else can you expect from this industrious cordless chain saw? Well its weight is pretty low considering its capabilities; at just 4kg when fitted with the battery we believe this should suit gardeners of all strengths and abilities. Cordless power means reduced noise, zero emissions, less vibrations, low cost maintenance, longer lasting parts, better efficiency and user comfort. What are you waiting for? This has never been a better time to invest in new garden machinery, cordless power really is the future of gardening, so don't get left behind!
Battery power has come a long way in the last few years, and the all-new Lithium-Ion battery is not a "work in progress" but a completely new design offering many features such as no self-discharge, which means you can charge the battery and store it and it won't lose any charge. It will be ready to go whenever you are, so no excuses now!

Supplied as a power unit only. Battery and charger will need to be purchased separately if you do not already possess them.

Customer Reviews

Good, no mess, no fuss small chainsaw. - Review by Jennifer
Build Quality
Ease of Use
Value for Money
I don't use a chainsaw very often and was always put off battery powered machines because I thought the batteries would perform poorly with infrequent use. This one uses the same battery as the lawn mower in the same range which I use more frequently. Problem solved. (Posted on 10/07/2016)
