When it comes to chainsaws corded and battery-powered options have always left something to be desired — their lack of torque and power relegating them to oversized shrub duty. But come this September, there’s going to be a new player in town. The Oregon PowerNow Cordless Chainsaw ($TBA) will pack 40 volts of lithium ion power in interchangeable high-capacity cells for gobs of on-site power for medium-sized duties. Besides the obvious benefits like quieter operation, instantaneous start and an absence of fumes, this battery-powered scythe will also feature an integrated precision sharpening system which sharpens chains in just 3 seconds.
