  • Cordless chain saws...?

    Hey, anyone else tried these new cordless chainsaws... I just got one back at thanksgiving.. I got out today and played with it a bit.. Got to say it's exceeded my expectations.... I'll probably do a write up on my blog later after a bit more use.. but I got to say,.. for $200 (like $160 for the same unit with a wimpier battery)


    now it's not a "woodland clearing" tool... but for the basic large branch/small tree after the storm clean up tool, It'll work!
    I cut a "tree" (good 9 inches Dia) down and into a 3 manageable pieces,. walked down my short trail to the mailbox (about 1/8 mile long) clearing downed branches, clipping back small (1" dia or so,) brush and crap. Couple of larger branches (4-6") and cut them up into small logs.. bla bla bla.. good hour of use easy.. Still had 1/2 charge.

    Pretty impressed!!

    Try a silky gomboy or other silky saw, impressive. Runs on bacon, eggs and beer.
    SS rule the dirt!

      ya.. anything under like 4 inches.. sure they will do the bigger diameter, but I don't have the time nor the joint structure to deal with hand cutting big stuff.. or to put it in simple terms.. to friggin old for that crap

        I have a B+D cordless with a few batts. It works well. I usually ride to the spots that need work with it in a backpack but it wears me out pretty fast. I'm thinking of a rack to hold it.
        I was just over at Nehantic S.F. there's a bunch of big limbs on one trail, perfect for a cordless, no noise at all. Mine was $90 I think, it's been a few years at least. Extra batts. $40 each. Also bought a better charger $30
        Wasn't that a mighty storm
        It blew the people all away

            nice idea but limited in use, very heavy, battery life can't match bacon or ben&jerrys power


            saw, silky bigboy 2000 folding. 14 inches

            12 inch oak blowdowns or bigger

            actual sawing time, per 12 inch cut, under 1min30secs with good position.

            age? I am about 100, with severe 24x7 shoulder pain. silky does the work, my shoulder just steers


            silky saw will cut through a car, a refrigerator, a tire, u name it. trees drop just being shown the blade

              yaaaaay,.. i had a silky,... I'll take the batteries thank you not heavy at all, certainly lighter and easier than a gas unit! and works pretty damn well... had 2 out today and in the below freezing temp they both ran pretty constant cutting up and notching a tree into a skinny.. guessing like 75-100 notches (2-4 inches) in to the tree plus all the branching and such.. it would have hurt no matter what with a hand saw and for sure taken more than the hour or so it did with the chainsaws.
