Bought yesterday, with the 12" bar a single 200 (4AH) battery and quickest charger. Wow, what a beautiful saw! Lighter than I expected, just so nice to use. Picked it up and went straight to work, removing a sycamore from a roadside wall. Didn't bother with ear defenders, didn't need them. The saw feels extremely controllable, no gyroscopic effect except for a very slight vertical nose lift. Did the sycamore down to about fifteen feet, and topped a small cypress, still had three lights on the battery. It does demand mindfulness as the saw could potentially un-break itself on branches, so was hyper-aware of break and throttle position when picking it up. The torque, relatively slow chain speed, quietness, complete lack of vibration etc. made the working experience more "studied" - more deliberate, I would say. Easy and instant communication with groundie was a blessing. I find I'm developing a kind of pseudo-fetish for the 160t, I keep going to the shed just to pick up the saw and hold it, marvelling at the design and technology. Would recommend.
Can't help notice lots of positive user reviews for the battery powered Husqvarna T536 Li XP see the specifications here: HUSQVARNA 536 Li XP® - XP® saws ....am I mad to seriously consider this as my first ever chainsaw? We have 16 acres of mixed woodland to manage; and our woods range from scrub ~ to unmanaged coppice ~ to self seeded mini-trees ~ to medium trees ~ to big trees ~ to massive gurt trees. I'm not expecting the Husky T536 LiXP to fell anything massive, and probably nothing much medium size.... My questions are: How much work should I realistically expect this electric chainsaw to cope with?.... What's the maximum fell size? Could I get away with just buying this and a much bigger chainsaw at a later date?
