I live in the woods of Southern Indiana and often find that I need to trim low hanging limbs on the trees in my yard. I’ve resorted to using a saw before, but most of the time, we’ll wait till we have a lot of limbs to trim and will ask Jeanne’s brother to come over with his chainsaw. A chainsaw is a tool that’s missing from my collection and for various reasons, is one that I never really had a desire to purchase till now. The OREGON PowerNow 40V MAX Cordless Chainsaw might be the tool that changes that. First of all, it doesn’t require stinky gasoline and oil mixtures. Second, it doesn’t have one of those darned pull cords to start it. I hate those… because I’m a wuss and it takes me a zillion tries to get them to start. It’s also quieter to use. The PowerNow is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery that can slice up to 250 2-3 inch branches on a single charge with the Endurance battery pack version of this chainsaw. Of course, the thicker the wood the less cuts per charge. The PowerNow with the Endurance battery pack is available now for $499.
