Yes a mate has a stihl 10 or 12 inch battery chainsaw, wow what a tool and a 3 or 4KWH (?) battery give about 20 mins on hardwood and a bit longer on soft wood.

As ever the trouble is that I am now invested in petrol engines and it's a waste to change to all electric until they break.

Yes i understand, i plucked for the makita corded chainsaw when my little husky finally gave up and needed a new carb, already had a cheap replacement and mechanic said OEM was the way to go, except they cost a serious chunk of money
My plan was for processing firewood close to the yard and borrow my step-bros big 36" for actual felling further from mains.
