I can’t see going cordless on a chainsaw, yet. When I fire up the Husqvarna saw, I’m usually taking out a whole tree, or a big part of one, so I run it hard for hours. I need the power density of gasoline. I keep several sharp chains, a couple quarts of premix trufuel, and a bottle of bar oil at the ready.
I don’t use the Husqvarna saw for pruning, even heavy limbs.
I find that the Makita cordless 18v reciprocating saw with a pruning blade is quieter, lighter, more convenient, and safer. I can climb a ladder, or even a tree, with that cordless and not worry about starting, kickback, or weight.
Im not getting off my Stihl, but look at the Makita as an option - like a 6 vs 12 point socket set.
Any kind of serious tree work Ill grab the gas saw, but If I need to do some limbing or light work I'll grab the battery saw every time.
A recip makes tons of sense on a ladder or in a weird area, plus you can do metal or anything else with it.
