Check this little baby out.  Charge it with the motorhome inverter. Handy for firewood????

But retailing at $249.00 in Australia makes it a bit expensive.

I think that one would be next to useless with our hardwood so not much good for cutting firewood I don't think Derek. Their 36 volt chainsaw looks like it would be excellent but they are expensive so I will just have to stick with our little Stihl fuel chainsaw for now.

I have just upgraded to a Makita 36v saw, replacing my ageing echo saw. It was not the cheapest option but it fits all my other makita batteries.
It comes with a 12” bar, I have ordered the 14” bar for it as well.

That'd be a nice little unit John. Fantastic to have when camping.

John, saw someone using one at a campsite in NSW.  What impressed me was the quietness off it and of course it cut as good as my Stihl.

I am very happy with it so far, cuts as good as my old petrol saw, and just press the button to start it.
We also have the mower to match so I already had extra batteries.

It’s amazing how they can get so much power out of these modern day batteries. I have a range of 8 different Ryobi tools.
Don’t have the chainsaw YET

A lot of the new tools now are brushless,this helps.
Makita has 2 versions of the 36v chainsaw, the one I bought is the brushless unit, it has a chain speed of 1200m/min but the brushed unit is only 500m/min.
