Bullshit.
When Newsom bans gas chainsaws in Kaliphornia in 2024...I will drive out of state to replace those that I have.
Same with blowers, whackers and generators.
I refuse to drive an electric vehicle as well.
Screw you green phfucks.

I don't have a battery chainsaw. My Stihls are gas but I don't typically pack them. For the small stuff that falls across the trail, I use a Sven Saw that conveniently I always carry and have no battery/fuel concerns. Not to dissuade you from a battery saw but I'd consider backing it up with the camp saw if you run into a big job and need to ration your batteries.

My 20V Dewalt 12" works great for small jobs and a couple of the 6Ah batteries would more than work for what you need. I hardly ever use my gas saw around the house any more.

My wife wanted a battery chainsaw, so I got her a Stihl with a 14” bar. I made fun of it for a while, but started using it. Got a lot of use out of it today. It won’t replace my Stihl Farm Boss or the MS250, but it is very useful.

I run Makita on all my jobs so I went with the Makita saw when we are roughing beams etc. It’s a solid saw with no problems so far.

I have an 80v Kobalt. When I got it, I needed it now and it was the only one left in town during the Christmas rush. It's not bad. The Dewalt might be better but the Kobalt did come with a quick charger that charges at twice the speed of the Dewalt.

Note that you can't charge them in temps below 32F. That will screw up Li batteries. Some, like the Kobalt, have automatic switches on the chargers that won't charge when it's that cold. You can run them in any temps but keep the charger in the house when it's below freezing.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

I heard JimFromTN has one of those 80V ButtPlugs. You might ask him how the battery holds up under heavy use.

I have quite a few of the Ryobi 18V tools. One of those is a little 10" chain saw. It sucks in some applications. It doesn't have much velocity, so if the limb or whatever you are cutting is light enough to move under the saw, it bounces. So if you wanted to cut a 2 inch limb growing over a trail, it would be a bitch.

How long will that dewalt go and whats its limitations. I thought about getting one for small quick stuff around the house.

My buddy as the 60v craftsman and its been great, used it a ton, it does leak a lot of bar oil though with no adjustments that we can find.

12" 20V DeWalt. Perfect for what it gets used for: Trimming and pruning. It makes the trip to hunting camp just for those reasons and has proven to be a pretty good tool. 5Ah batteries last about 45 minutes with steady use, like cutting six to eight inch pole logs for camp firewood.

Have Stihl gas saws for the big chores, so no need for a larger battery powered saw..


If three or more people think you're a dimwit, chances are at least one of them is right.

I use a Dewalt 20v 12" for smaller limbs, a 10" 80v pole saw attachment on my trimmer for pruning and an 80v 18" Kobalt chainsaw for bigger stuff. For occasional use, I love 'em. Just keep the chains sharp, batteries charged. Less mess, less noise, less repair (so far), push a button and have at it. I'm done screwing with gas saws.
