    That is a NICE looking truck... with all that muscle all you can manage is a 9V 'chain'saw? besides, turnarounds are usually due to Sean finding a lake to drive through, or kevin unable to find an outlet on foot (mini-marathon), or the ever-popular... "hey, lets see where this goes...." its never due to downed trees... now downed Forests, on the otherhand...

    Thanks man. LMAO!

    I used to do firewood. I had three real saws then. I donít have any use for a real saw now that Iím not doing the firewood. The 40 Volt is perfect for my needs now.

    Psshhh. Only a 40 volt.... actually i saw a Makita over the winter, forget the volts but it was a big pack, like 12 Ah, and it could rip! For light duty stuff I could definately run one if i didn't already have a good 2stroke.

    Tyler's gonna hate me... I've been giving serious consideration to electric. I asked about battery saws recently when I picked my Husky up at the shop. My guy showed me their 16" 40V saw, he told me he'll run his for a solid half hour of bucking.

    I'm thinking that a half hour of felling and bucking means a couple of hours of splitting, etc. For the 4 or so cord I put up a year that's just about right.

    I might get one, as my mid 90s vintage Husky is, well, old. Plus that's the one I'd bring in the Jeep.

    Nah, no hate. If I wasn't invested, I'd consider electric. Especially if i had a bunch of Millwaki tools already. They seem to be the only one that hasnt changed their battery format/connector.

    I don't know if they have the umph for a saw, but I thought Ryobi has been the same battery for a long time. No?

    Yep, Ryobi has the same connection for their new batteries, at least for 18V. I'm using their 4Ah li with my old tools.

    Changing battery form is an old Crapsman trick, and that's why I avoid their cordless tools, I have a perfectly good 18V drill and light that needed batteries. It was cheaper to buy new Ryobi tools with batteries and charger.
