Did a search, and couldnít see this listed, so itís a review of sorts:

I had four ornamental trees, max 5-6ď at the base that I had taken against. I planted them, I figure I can change my mind.
I already had a 20v Parkside circular saw, bought for a panel-sawing job remote from mains power, and the 10Ē chainsaw takes the same battery. So, worth a punt, a whole lot easier than wrestling with one of the bigger saws down at ground level and no fumes.
It was a delight. Though the battery had already been on the circular the day before (to take an inch off the bottom of a door) there was enough juice to knock down the four trees and limb them for better bonfiring, with no sign of giving up. The battery is tiny and lightweight, astonishing.
My only concern is obsolescence: I think Iíll buy another battery now because itíll all dissapear from sale before Iíve worn it out - and for the right job, itís a handy little tool.

I think youíre right to get another battery Chas. At that price the cells are not going to be premium quality. From what I have seen, the different brands of power tool will not accept each otherís battery. Iíve owned the Bosch battery chainsaw for years now and itís my favourite out of four for the reasons you gave. Of course itís not for big jobs.

By all means buy an extra battery, but donít stress it, they are pretty easy to refurb, just a few 18650s (or similar).
