Kobalt 80V Chainsaw Review

Editor’s Note: This is the original text from our reviewer when the Kobalt 80V Chainsaw came out. However, the ratings have been updated to reflect its performance in our recent chainsaw shootout. We’ve had the opportunity to see several new lithium-ion powered chainsaws this year. What started as a novelty has developed into a serious […]

Oregon 40V Chainsaw Review CS300

If the guys commentating about quarterfinal matchups are called Sportscasters, what’s my title if I have the call for the tool version of the quarterfinals, a Toolcaster? I’ll have to think about that. In any event, over the last few weeks, I’ve been telling you a lot about our own Elite 8 – a shootout […]

GreenWorks 40V Chainsaw Review

It’s not often that a cordless chainsaw gets more than a casual nod from professionals, but the GreenWorks 40V chainsaw literally raised eyebrows from several Pros we handed it to.

Echo 58V Chainsaw Review CCS-58V4AH

I recently had all kinds of fun conducting a shootout of eight battery-operated chainsaws for Pro Tool Reviews. As I mentioned at the time, I did a similar test four years ago but the field was much thinner due to the relative lack of power compared to what we have today. Now, more manufacturers are […]

16-Inch EGO Chainsaw Review: Model CS1604

All other things equal, battery-powered tools are preferable to gas-powered tools. Consider this – you don’t have to keep gas that’s flammable and spillable on hand, you don’t have to mess around with mixtures on two strokes or add oil to four strokes, don’t have to clean the air filter, you don’t fiddle around with […]

Chainsaw Basics for Apprentices and Pros

It occurred to us that an article on chainsaw basics might be just the ticket for new apprentices getting into the field. It might even be a good refresher for Pros who do this day in and day out. The average chainsaw injury requires 110 stitches, so wear protective gloves, boots, chaps, and eye protection. […]

Best Battery-Powered Chainsaw Shootout

Four years ago when I did the battery powered chainsaw shootout for Pro Tool Reviews, we could only find four competitors in the 36-volt or higher class. But now, with a burgeoning battery-powered outdoor power equipment (OPE) market, we had to narrowly define the test criteria to keep the test to a manageable size and to […]
