Greenworks 80V 18″ Cordless DigiPro Chainsaw – Gas Killer

Think green!  Fossil fuels are deemed evil and soon will be eradicated from this planet.  Well maybe in about 70 years, but Greenworks is one step closer to making a no gas a reality for millions of property owners.  We were highly impressed with the Greenworks 40V chainsaw that we saw at GIE a few years back.  The 80V has twice the power and longer run time. When we first got the 80v Chainsaw we took it out to a huge cottonwood tree that we had dropped last year and never chopped up.  After charging the battery for 30...

When I hear the word Makita, I think professional power tools.  I think of tools made to work hard and last.  However I found out that Makita is not just power tools, but they also make some lawn and garden tools such as blowers, weed whips and more.  In fact, they make some great chain saws.  Now they may not be as popular in the states, but from my understanding, they make some of the best chain saws.  I heard they now have a newer cordless version out, the HCU02ZX2 which is a 36V saw.  This isn’t any 36V,...

Husqvarna 455 Rancher Chainsaw – Farm Tough Review

Sometimes you just need a general all around use chainsaw.  Husqvarna created the 455 18″ saw for this category.  It has plenty of power for almost any task you throw at it and starts easlily every time. Whenever we ask industry forestry pros about the equipment they use, it’s always Husqvarna and Stihl.  I once brought an Echo chainsaw to a pro for an opinion and he laughed me away.  I had major problems with that Echo, but it is a classic case of you get what you pay for.  I am a firm believer in brand loyalty, Husqvarna...
