How are ye finding the batteries over trad 2 strokes? There's all this blah blah from Husq & Sthil, but on the ground, in the real world. It's the way to go in the long run but I will miss that pull cord & burble. How is the torque?

I’m not a daily user, bought it for home to run along side log splitter and keep noise down as to not annoy neighbours, was first time use of it yesterday. Torques fine, just let it do what it wants. Cut some 10-12 logs with it, managed fine, not as quick as petrol saw but think we knew that already. Rekon i got about 40mins continuous cutting from a battery on owt from 3-4 inch up to 6-8 inch stuff and like i say some odd bits of 10 inch or so stuff. Was running a 14” bar on it, gona try a 12” bar next weekend as a comparison and time it on both batteries, see what time difference is. Thinking it should maybe give me an extra 5 mins maybe on shorter bar?! Oiler is pretty conserving too, doesnt seem to be any issues bar and chain wise. Shall report back on my findings

Couldn't of picked a better day to be working by the broads.

Quite a lot of shortening limbs on a few veteran oaks, major deadwood over the paths. I think the last big tree I remember a member on her posing in the large cavity.

Where on the broads is this, Flatters?
