just curious about your opinions of gas-powered chainsaws.. Have you completely ruled them out? If not, you can usually find nice stihl’s or echo’s on craigslist very reasonably. I think the problem you’ll run into (as others have alluded to) is that to find something cordless that performs anywhere near as well as a gas-powered saw, you’re going to pay a ton. If you do go that route (gas), steer clear of anything you can buy at Home Depot/Lowes/etc. They’re basically all the same saw, re-badged. I bought a Homelite at HD this year because I had no choice – I needed it ASAP & it was a weekend. It leaked bar oil all over my garage floor, started hard, I mean, REALLY hard, and the chain tensioner came off while I was using it (!). It’s really scary to see that the chain is held in place by a wing nut & a big hunk of plastic..
