I now rarely use my Stihl chain saws, but on the occasion I need to they are near impossible to start.

I have seen more and more cordless tools and am wondering do cordless chain saws make sense?

How do the Litium batteries hold up in once a year type of use?

How long between charges?

Anyone hae one? Compared to gas models?

Thanks

I was looking into this as well.

Homedepot sells Ryobi 40 Volt battery replacement for $179 or you can buy the 14inch Ryobi Chainsaw which includes the 40 Volt battery for $199 and comes with the charger.

That makes me feel the whole thing is too weird for me.

Still on the fence on this. Some Ryobi stuff is not bad, but they are a budget option. ....

I have a 14" EGO chain saw from Home Depot. It is good for up to a 6" limb, maybe even a 12" tree for a few cuts. Then your battery will be depleted. I resorted to using it to cut a stump to ground level after dulling the chain on my 16" gas powered echo. It's not really good for that kind of work. I will not give up my echo.

That said, I am really happy with my collection of EGO tools, weed wacker, blower, hedge trimmer, and chain saw. Other than the chain saw, they are all well powered for the job. And I do appreciate the chain saw for an occasional limb that falls from the trees. I have two batteries so if one runs out I can just snap the other battery in. I have eliminated the gas or plug powered weed wacker, blower, hedge trimmer. ....

With changes in life lol me getting older last year I let my 034 stihl chain saw go. With the little use and gas issues making it harder starting.

My first electric was the cute little GTA 26 chain saw which kept me from needing the big saw to be fired at all for spring clean-up!

My wife was having nothing to do with starting the BG 85 blower so I bought a blower and now she blows of the deck and I don't have to! For Christmas I bought the chainsaw with the battery system to match so both are the big battery's are interchangeable as well as a small charger and a rapid charger.

So far I have not used them much but I feel that I made good choices and knowing that we have not had failures at work with the Stihl line-up I am confident that I'm ready to play for years in those wonderful golden years! ....
