Cordless chainsaws: the 6 best of the rest

The outstanding Oregon chainsaw, the Powernow CS250E tops our cordless chainsaw charts.

Its 40 Volt lithium-ion Endurance battery pack, 14 inch bar and self sharpening capability make it hard to be beat for overall quality.

But the PowerNow CS250E is not a cheap saw and it may be too big for some people’s requirements.

Here is our selection of the best of the rest, which are all decent cordless saws in their own right.

With batteries ranging in power from 12 to 20 Volts and with bars between 4.5 and 10 inches, these saws are more odd-job and pruning saws than all rounder chainsaws like the Oregon PowerNow.

But if your are looking for a cordless chainsaw, then you should certainly find something to suit you from among this list if the Oregon CS250E is beyond your requirements.
