Electric chainsaws

Thanks for feedback on these. I think rechargeable is definitely the way forward for me. Better for neighbours too.  On a Sunday afternoon last thing folk want to hear is a petrol saw revving away while I cut up fire wood in the garden

The other major advantage is that they are easy to store. I just take the batteries out and keep the chainsaw on top of the bedroom storage. No worries about petrol etc.

The Texas chainsaw massacre could never be remade with a re chargeable, could it!

When we were stopped by a fallen tree near Kidderminster last year CRT turned up with a battery operated Husqvarna. It was quite impressive what it could cut. Only had about a 12-15 inch bar but certainly didn’t lack grunt.  The operator said he was very happy with it…plus they could recharge it in the truck….dunno if they had a 12v charger or an inverter.

An electric saw certainly has less presence than a full bore 2 stroke full chat, noise  and exhaust certainly makes a more impressive film but personally I would pick an electric with a spare battery if I was planning to butcher a room full of people in a dark cabin in the woods, seriously have you ever had a saw reluctant to start, this is the big advantage of electric saws just plug in the battery and go

I have a husqvarna 345 from memory it's a great saw  not quiet and sometimes difficult to start, the cast would definitely escape. 

I have said before when I lived in Scotland I had I think an AEG electric chainsaw awesome was the only word. It was made redundant by a twin cylinder lister saw bench which made short  work of logs perfik

Yeah but how many remote dark cabins have mains power to recharge the batteries? ???

Anyone experience of the rechargeable chainsaws? Thinking of getting one to use at home and to take to the boat. I realise that the batteries are very expensive 

I'm using DeWalt Chainsaw and It's working efficient, brushless and cordless electric saw. Its lightweight to easily portable.

DeWalt seem to make good power tools. Mainly wanted it now to clear a path on Yorkshire Derwent through trees up to Elvington lock, have managed to get up there with a hand saw but there is still a lot more to clear for boats with a canopy to be able to make that passage safely. Especially coming back down with the flow.

Just get a proper bowsaw. 

 

This one is lovely. It's in Tewkesbury so too far for me to collect it otherwise I would have it in a heartbeat. I already have one the same and the bigger one and the smaller one but they are such nice saws!

It is an EIA frame. Edsbyns Industri AB. One of the best swede saws you will ever find. Ok so it needs a new blade but these are available albeit getting worse over time. sand ok, bahco and Jack seem to be the best ones. 

 

bow saw with a decent not a rusty blade goes through wood fast. I mean really fast most people are surprised to see it.

I want that saw ! 

 

what I really want is an EIA or Sandvik 42" frame. That is the holy grail. I do have the blades for one of these but never managed to get the frame. They did make them but they are very rare. 

 

 

 

 

I've used one of these, very good, prefer it to a bowsaw, feels less wieldy.
