    How much firewood do you cut?
    How big are the trees/limbs?
    How long does a charge last?

    Just curious, I’m not for or against battery powered stuff. If it’ll work as good as gas, I’ll use it if not I won’t. So far lawn equip wise, battery still has a ways to go but they are getting there.

    I'm not the best at posting pics, but when I tested it out on a dead tree behind the house, this haul took at least 75% charge(started full got down to one out of 4 bars), just a 12 inch blade, but like I said, it's all that I need

    The smaller branches were no big deal, I recall those larger ones taking a little extra power and elbow grease

    It can be used for what your doing too

    Not too many top handle battery saws yet but some climbers are trying it and positive feedback so far
