cordless chainsaw

Looking for a cordless chainsaw. Im not needing it for big jobs. Looking at a dewalt 60V with a 16" blade.
It looks nice but fairly expensive. And maybe bigger then i need.
What brand seems to be working well for everybody? Thanks

I've been wondering the same thing. Have a decent Huskavarna now, but don't use it enough, half the time I go to use it, the gas I have mixed up is stale or the carb needs cleaned up. Thought a battery powered one would be good for those little jobs or even cut until the battery goes dead and call it a day (don't like to over work myself!). Keep the gas one for when I feel like cutting more. How long or how much will they cut on a charge?

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Stihl is good. Get the big batteries. Really a good saw. And you can get all sorts of other tools. Still not available as a bucket saw, but I think it is in Europe, so it will here sometime.

Uncle has a 14" ryobi and a battery lasts as long as he wants to work. Nice light and snappy unit for the cost. I'd like to try one for fencing. Still would keep my husquavarna in the truck but keep this on the bike as its so compact.

Battery life depends on job. Limbing the stihl lasts a long time. Blocking a 10 inch trunk and you will be down to less than an hour. That is with the big battery.

Lol. Uses it around his shelterbelts cleaning up. Don't think it's meant to fall big stuff but most of what's around here wouldn't be more than 8" butts. Green poplars are easy enough to hack up. It's the dried up poplar and maples that suck the lube oil out of a saw and dull it up if you don't stop to sharpen frequently.

We have an el cheapo princess auto earthwise and have had it for years the battery is getting weak now but I could easily fill my 8ft truck box with trimmings off my lane on one battery . I also take it with me in the snowmobile trail groomer works exellent for the odd overhanging tree as it can be used one handed .
