Since I don't do any heavy tree work anymore, i decided to go with a cordless chainsaw for general maintenance, since I already have the Ryobi 40v weedwacker, I decided to go with the 14" chainsaw from the same line. Today I used it to take down a 30 foot tall 11" diameter willow tree of some sort. This tree was becoming a nuisance, it's very rubbery and and snow or ice load was causing it to bend and make contact with the house. Plus occasionally limbs would snap off and land in the driveway. This happened Thursday night when we had a little snow/ice storm, so it was time to go. Getting the first three main sections down was pretty easy, but the third was leaning over the house while the main trunk had a slightly downhill lean. The tree was tall enough to take out the gutters and front windows of the house, or make contact the power supply lines coming to the house or the power lines on the street though just barely on those street lines. Spent a good deal of time thinking and looking at it from all angles and was able to make the cuts just right so with a little push I was able to get to spin away from the house and supply lines and land across the driveway. It was a little nerve wracking, but all ended as planned. Anyway, the point is the battery powered chainsaw was quite capable for the job, limbed, felled and cut up the tree with power to spare, was very impressed and it's nice and quiet with no fumes to smell, it's nice and light no harsh vibrations and the cut quality is very nice.
