Battery saw

Recommended Posts

I attended a Husquvarna presentation about 5(and probably nearer 10?) years ago, promoting their new battery powered tools.

I came away impressed, certainly from a home owner hobbyist POV, but, with a few extra batteries I could not see any issues with using professionally, especially using their bigger belt/backpack? mounted battery.

And having recently purchased a couple of 18V Metabo brushless tools, cordless is certainly the way to go.

I’ve the Husqvarna 536Li battery saw with BLi200 batteries. One battery lasts about an hour, which crucially is longer than it takes to charge the second one! It did discharge quicker when used at near zero decrees C temperatures last winter.

Do think ahead though as I chose that saw over the Stihl due to similar reviews of both saws... now looking for a hedge trimmer and looks like the Stihl comes out on top in every review, so if you want to use batteries in multiple devices check reviews of all tools first!!

I have the Stihl hedgetrimmer too, and like it a lot.
