Earlier this week I got the chance to try the 18 volt cordless electric chainsaw you see here on some hard maple firewood logs. I know cordless tool battery technology has come a long way, but has it come far enough to make something like this practical? I had my doubts, but I’m now pleasantly surprised.
I compared this lightweight little Milwaukee with the cutting speed of my biggest and fastest gas-powered saw – a 68cc unit from Echo. Click below to watch a video tour of Milwaukee’s new 18 volt cordless chainsaw and see how much firewood it can cut on a single charge.
