Anyone own one? Was thinking of getting my dad one for father's day. He's got a stihl that's practically new, but I'm the only one that can use it. He's got bad shoulders, and I'm thinking a 10 or 12" dewalt might be useful. Any experience , are they any count?

I want one for fishing.

I float fish in a John boat on a small creek.

It changes from year to year depending on how much
It floods each winter.

Battery chainsaw would sure make getting through treetops and limbs easy.


No more than if use it looked at the $220 green works that northern tool sells.

I went to that store but no display. Just in the box.

If i was gonna use one a bunch, I’d go Milwaukee fuel.

I love my Ryobi chainsaw, blower, and limb trimmer.....all use the same 40V battery and a charge last a good while. The chainsaw will buzz through 4-6 in limbs in grand fashion.

I’ve never used one but for someone older in age that needs a saw for taking out shrubs and such around the house they probably make a lot of sense and would work great. Would definitely beat using loppers or a handsaw.

That’s pretty impressive. I wouldn’t have thought they’d work well on limbs that size but then again a 40V battery is some serious juice.

I have the Ryobi 8” chain saw, 18 volts batteries. It is a very useful tool and I keep it in the basket rack on my 4 whlr.

Comes in mighty handy.

Sitka Deer has the Stihl version. I seem to remember him giving a review.

I bought the Milwaukee a few weeks ago. Used it for a few hours cleaning up some trails. Pretty awesome tool. Battery life seems really great. Only complaint is that it leaves a puddle of bar oil on the shelf.

I was in a store yesterday that had the Stihl electric saws. Considerably lighter than the Milwaukee fwiw. That kinda surprised me.

My son bought me a 40v weed wacker, & it has been great for 2 years. Was skeptical at first, but I like it. Lord knows I can ruin a gas operated one. Last few I had lasted a season ( used ethanol gas ).

I've got the fuel pole saw. My understanding is their chainsaw is very similar in bar length and power. As higginez says it does leak oil but its a beast for power and battery life.

Green works 40v.

Blows through limbs up to 6" diameter.

Surprised the hell outta me.

I looked at the Husqvarna and the smaller Stihl one. Bought the Stihl saw and couldn’t be happier. It was smaller than the Husky and does light cutting chores with ease. Lots of cutting on a charge, which is good because a replacement battery is $$. Stihl makes a larger saw which did not fit my needs or budget. Other brands may be as good for all I know, but I’d buy this one again.

Cool
That’s hard enough for a good review.
