A deer hunting magazine had a test of the Husqvarna 120i battery chain saw; 36 volt, Li-ion battery. I won't go into all the details but the writer gave it high marks. No gas to mix, no fumes, light at 6.6 lbs., with plenty of power. I'm sure there is more info on the Husqvarna website. I have a corded Harbor Freight saw that I use in the shop for cutting wood for turning pieces. Works OK for what I use it for. Let me add it was very cheap with a 20% off coupon. Sometimes HF will send flyers with a25% of coupon for one item.

On my EGO mover 7.5ah takes about 30 minutes and it showed only 75% depleted. The fast charger was included with the mower... not sure how long the other charger would take.

Ego chainsaw

This saw is great. Used my new saw to clear two downed 5" evergreen trees from a path in my woods. Cut up branches to clear a path for the ATV and cut a maple 6" branch plus cleared one more tree and these still did not effect the battery life. plugged in to charger and it read full charge. Impressed.

My gas chain saw was in the shop because it suddenly stopped working. I got a call yesterday saying that it lost all compression and wasnít worth repairing. I made sure I only used their oil with the gas and more recently switched to their pre-mix gas. Iím really disappointed, so my next will likely be an electric.

yes 299.00. The charger will surprise you at first because it contain a fan which comes on during charge. My initial charge took about one hour. I did loose the chain due to it being pinched by a branch on the maple limb branch but it was no problem getting it back on.
