My daughter (farmer) bought a battery powered chainsaw. I have a large Stihl chain saw and doesn't take long for my arms the get tired with all the weight. Tried the electric, light weight , easy to handle and did a good job on cutting trees for a cabin. When the battery is going down, so am I. Going to have to buy one.I thought battery chainsaws would be a joke for at least a few more years. However, I had a neighbor have two trees taken down by professional crews at the end of last week. I was curious why it was much quieter than normal when tree crews are there. So I wondered over, and they were using battery powered chainsaws.
Each worker had a couple spare batteries, they had charging packs hooked up in the truck.
I asked why? The answer was less maintenance, less hassle, and easier to keep charged than fueled.
The batteries are also swappable with all the other equipment they have.
Just in the local news. Of all the electric generating coal fired power plants in this state, it was decided 3 can stay running. Maybe you can be able to drive your new electric auto around the block. Looks like the prices of horses will be going up.
