      Why is it a bad idea? If someone has an ecosystem of tools that use the same batteries. Itโ€™s a great idea.
      Without a carby and engine, there are less consumables and moving parts and No need to mess with the 2 stroke mixes… etc
      Open minded to how different use cases fit different needs but not sure how battery powered garden tools can be a worst idea. If anything, itโ€™s the future as more high end tool makers embrace battery based power source

      I use my EGO battery saw quite a bit. When cutting a lot of firewood we bring it along as it is great for cutting up small branches as easy to start and stop and lighter the petrol saws we have. It is also the saw I take camping and on 4wd trips, as no need to take petrol in the car, it is much less noisy that a petrol saw and I can charge with an inverter. So I think that decent battery saws have their uses.

      Might need to get with the times Mate.

      I own 3 chainsaws, a 038 magnum Stihl, an arborist Makita and a 18v Milwaukee. I use the 18v 90 percent of the time because of the reduced hassle and noise. Cuts great.
      My uncle who use to work in forestry and now does arborist work uses a 36v stihl as part of his kit for reduced noise reasons and for awkward spots.

      This DeWalt in particular my father has, who also owns 3 other Stihl saws fyi, it gets used alot for clearing fence lines.
      I wouldn't call it a powerhouse, but for trimming trees, clearing fences and even found it handy for construction work.

      Battery powered saws have a place, and to be honest as the tech is getting developed, petrol saws I can see being obsolete in the near future.

      For occasional use and light work I would say people are far better off with battery saws, reduced maintenance, no fuel. Also being able to just pull the trigger to turn on and off is fantastic, instead of leaving a saw idling constantly.

      This has been ongoing since I saw this about April. I bought it this DeWalt 18V XR Brushless Chainsaw + 4.0ah for $299 and Dewalt 18V XR Brushless Line Trimmer on Sydney Tools's "Bonus Points" day, - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/540684.

      If you are planning to buy this product, I suggest you wait for next Sydney Tool's "Bonus Points" day.

    I love my battery saw.
    Its not a dewalt so not reviewing this one but handy as. With 1x 12ah battery I can cut a full ute load of wood with half charge still left.
    I have 2x petrol saws aswell. It definately has a place and gave me a few extra batteries for the rest of my set aswell.

    Went into Bunnings earlier in the week intending to buy a 20in 2 stroke saw, saw the 36v Ryobi brush less 14in ex display model for $126.

    And man….. This thing is grouse.

    I wasn't really sold on the batt over petrol thing but, for doing branches and trees around the house it's awesome.

    Deleted.

    Was going to price beat at Bunnings $349, then realised the item is skin only. ๐Ÿ˜‘

  •  

    Just had a call from the store to advise item has been discontinued so a refund is on its way.

    Can't decide between this and the Ryobi skin for $249.. Ryobi is 10m/s chain speed and this is 7.something m/s. Obviously not for hardcore use but wanted to get the better of the 2. Benefit of this is it comes with a battery and charger, benefit of the Ryobi is I already have batteries, faster chain speed and 6yr replacement warranty. Any advice or feedback would be much appreciated.
