    Does anyone have, or have any experience with, the Stihl battery powered chain saw?

    Pricey little bugger to get into if you don't already have the battery and charger for Stihl's cordless tools. Plan on about $600 to buy the saw, the high-capacity battery and the charger.

    We had one here at the resort for a week to demo and it surprised me a bit. Not commercial duty by any means but the battery life was decent and all the tools did a fair job. If quiet operation is what you need, the price doesn't scare you, and you're not looking to run a business with them, the set up just might be worth it.

    I was given a craftsman battery pole saw. Works pretty good for small branches.
