Battery chainsaw
« on: April 21, 2020, 04:43:43 PM »

I decided to try out a Milwaukee M18 chainsaw.  It uses a 16" narrow kerf chain.  I had already sawed through two bullets in another tree I cut down before this video.  The battery was about halfway used up at this point, too.  Some nice fresh red oak.  It's not a professional saw, but it's a solid performer in the "farm" style saws.  I like it.

My father-in-law has one of those. Not a big gas saw for sure but pretty handy to have around. Very impressive, battery saws have come a long way.

A buddy of mine has the same saw. I got to use it for a couple days last winter and I was impressed.  Kept the Stihl 440 around for felling and the bigger rounds but for limbing and smaller stuff that little saw can't be beat. The convenience factor is nice too. No gas, no choke, no rewind pull cord. Just grab the saw and go.
