Ya mate there very light!!

Lot lighter then old 084 with 36” bar we use 🥴

I’m fed up buying new tools every time go into garden machinery shop 🤣

Only thing worried use with battery saws by stihl was cost battery’s chargers and how long there last when had to climb 50/60ft 🥴

Cheers Slappy,...

I watched Western power use one,the Stihl on Monday last,pruning up a cherry picker,running a new line,as people saying,it's so light,the chap was using it one handed....


(I'm site manager ,grounds/gardens etc myself),used loads of different types of chainsaws,pole pruners,ride ons /tractor's etc.....

I run own garden services business and tree work for mate runs tree surgery company,
One we got for certain jobs was the Makita pruning saw!!
If you already have the battery’s which are the expensive part your quids in 👍

Does the job rather the loud stihl 150s use for pruning and nice small bars on them!!

Another tool we use is the stihl Kombi machines which your able to get chainsaw attachments and extension poles but your talking a lot of money!

Good luck 😉

I've used one of these for a few cuts. They are very quiet, no need for ear fenders.

Braid in between the teeth, pulled tightly with one hand and cut with a chainsaw with the other.

Surely there’s nothing not to like about that.

Cheers,good info,especially about Screwfix..

I've,got a chance to fish a lake,not fished for many yrs and all swims very over grown...Building a debris shelter in the back of the swim...

People in the farm nearby,full on snowflakes',so need to keep quiet..,they have bought the farm,but are not farmers..hence needing to be quiet..

Can defo recommend the Bosch lithium unit. Can cut with one hand (probably not advisable) and whisper quiet. B&Q and Screwfix should both have it on their sites for a look. I use mine when anglers are on the lake and it doesn’t disturb. Haven’t run the battery flat yet and the oil lasts a reasonable time too.

I know braid can be a bit tough to cut if your scissors are a bit blunt, but is it not a bit OTT to use a chainsaw to cut braid?

Any Arborists on here ?...looking for a bit of first hand info on the battery chainsaws....

I already have a Stihl and SGS saws but both are really loud,i use the Stihl pole pruners at work and these are great ,I mean in battery life and power ,half an hour charge and three hrs continuous use..

There is a reason why i want battery,its because it is very quiet,and i need to be VERY quiet....and light in weight...


Any one with info i`ll be grateful before i hit the button on one..
