This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: 16" chainsaw vs 14"

I have several other ego products and love them. As I have three batteries, I do not need another for the chainsaw. I have two concerns. 1. Is the 14" the same as the 16" except the bar and chain? I might need to upgrade to a 16" bar at some point but right now I like the lighter weight. 2. When I look at images of the 14" with and without the battery, I see differences. The model without the battery does not have 14" on the bar and the handle grip is different. I read one article that said that this means that this is the older model of the chainsaw.  I want the latest version the the chainsaw but am concerned that the 14" without the battery is an older model.

Hey Brian, here is the "article" from Workshop Addict on the differences between a 14" and 16" chain saw for your reference.  You were correct in that the 14" CS (Gen 1) does not have the 14" mark on the bar, and the handle grip is smooth.  Whereas the 14" CS (Gen 2) has the 14" mark on the bar, and the handle grip is ridged.  Therefore, if you buy the 14" kit without the battery, you are getting the Gen 1 - which is their older model.
