Cutting small trees with sawzall vs chainsaw


I'm not a huge fan of cordless, I see the use in some situations but if I'm working out of one spot I rather something I can plug in and have unlimited power. That said, the job's done and it went fine with the sawzall. There's a few stumps left to remove but I'll take care of those with the shovel and axe when I get around to it.

Cutting small trees with sawzall vs chainsaw


For years I used my Milwaukee 18 volt hatchet on obital mode to prune/cut down small trees. For bigger stuff I pulled out my Milwaukee 6527-21 9.5 amp super sawzall. I used to own a POS poulan electric but the screw adjustment wouldn't hold anymore!TodayI recieved my Husqvarna 316E 16 inch bar electric chainsaw! Defenitely better than the sawzalls on the trunks! For pruning/delimbing either works fine but chainsaw is faster! On the sawzalls I used Milwaukee 12inch pruning blades!
