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 […]

Milwaukee M18 Fuel Hedge Trimmer Review

What was a kid, I absolutely hated when Mom and Dad declared that it was Yard Day. Most of it wasn’t so bad, but I dreaded trimming the hedges. It meant dragging those 50-foot extension cords all around the yard to different outlets all morning. Pros, of course, don’t mess with the extension cords, but […]

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 […]

Milwaukee M18 Fuel String Trimmer Review

As we continue our review series of this Spring’s latest outdoor power equipment, we come to the new Milwaukee M18 Fuel String Trimmer.

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. […]

EGO 21 in Snow Blower Review

The EGO 21 in snow blower is one of only a handful of cordless battery-powered snow blowers. When reading the rave reviews of other EGO products, I had to see how if EGO’s snow blower lived up to the hype! When you live in Michigan, snow comes with the territory due to breezes from the west, over the […]

Milwaukee M18 Blower Review

We were caught off-guard last year when Milwaukee introduced new outdoor power equipment (OPE) products at their 2016 New Tools media event. Milwaukee calls it their New Tool Symposium, but I don’t drink enough Earl Grey tea to call it that. Among the tools announced were a Milwaukee M18 blower, a string trimmer, and a […]

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 […]
