not a chain saw but machine was built just for cutting down small trees. Called by the Db collectors, "the saw from hell" it has a Z or ZZ briggs engine and is pretty easy to use. Has no powered wheels so the ground need to be fairly flat, but it doesn't push all that hard. They made a buck attachment for it also.

Tried the Oregon saw out today, mixed feelings.  It does what I bought it for, with intermittent cutting, battery lasted 50 minutes.  Would have like a bit longer, but when I get another 4ah battery, the two should last me as long as I want to work at thinning.

 

This is what I'm working on:  HPIM3284.JPG  HPIM3285.JPG

 

Lots of Hackberry trees up to 4" diameter.  Cut a few, set the saw down & treat the stumps with Tordon RTU.  pile them, then cut a few more.  Saw cuts good, seemed like the first half of the battery went pretty quick (by the four indicator lights), second half lasted better.  Before I pay the price for the "Power Sharp" replacement chain, I'm going to try a standard 3/8 low profile chain @ about 1/2 the price, I have one on hand & it fits.

 

Overall, it does what I bought it for, no real complaints!

Added to the battery powered arsenal today, an Oregon PS250 pole saw!     http://oregoncordles...pole-saw-ps250/

 

Bought it with 4ah battery & charger, so now I have four batteries & two chargers.  I've also since bought the 40V leaf blower & plan to get the matching trimmer at some point!

I own a Kobalt 40V cordless 12" chain saw from Lowes.  Runs quite a while off one charge and has automatic oiler.  It has served me very well with no issues at all.  Pretty darn stout and highly recommend it.  They also make an 80V Kobalt chain saw, with a longer bar, but not sure how long.

Tried the new cordless pole saw on one limb today, worked very well.  Plenty more to do with it later!

That would be awfully handy to have I'm sure!  But I would have trouble using one, as it plain old HURTS when I do anything overhead more than a few seconds, even short times hurt.  But then I could use one by holding it below shoulder height.  It would cut my reach, but even that would still reach fairly high.

Hmmm, Lowes has a 40V pole saw for $99 (tool only).  I already have 2 batteries, so buying tool only would save me $70.  I may get me one some day.  It reaches 10 1/2', so if I held it 4' from the ground, I could still cut 14' off the ground!  Of course you don't wanna cut at max height or you'd be underneath the limb about to come down!  :rolling:
