Greenworks 60V Chainsaw Review

Our great battery-powered chainsaw shootout continues with today’s spotlight of the Greenworks 60V Chainsaw. If this is the first you’ve heard about the shootout, let me bring you up to speed: I recently made quite a bit of sawdust and hundreds of 8-inch diameter wood discs to determine how eight lithium-ion powered chainsaws stacked up against […]

Dewalt FlexVolt Chainsaw Review

Regular readers will recall that recently I pitted eight battery-powered chainsaws against one another in an exciting tooth-to-tooth shootout. We’re taking a closer look at each saw and today I’ll present to you the Dewalt FlexVolt Chainsaw. It is one of two DeWalt saws in the competition – the other being a 40V Max saw with […]

Echo 58V Chainsaw Review CCS-58V4AH

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

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 […]

Best Battery Powered Chainsaw Shootout

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 […]

Warn Cordless PullzAll

Warn Cordless PullzAll Review

The Warn cordless PullzAll is a portable motorized winch/hoist with a maximum capacity of 1,000 pounds that’s available in both corded and 24-volt cordless models. Unlike some portable winches, the DC version doesn’t rely on being wired to a nearby vehicle’s battery; it is a self-contained unit with an onboard rechargeable battery pack like other […]

36V Cordless Chainsaw Shootout Comparison

36V Cordless Chainsaw Shootout Comparison

A cordless chainsaw won’t replace a full size gas saw, but they’re great for part-time use on the job site, around the property and even in the woodworking shop. Chainsaws and other power-hungry outdoor power equipment (OPE) are a perfect match for large 36V lithium-ion batteries that have proven too big for most handheld cordless […]
