Oregon battery powered chainsaw

We tried out the new Oregon battery powered chainsaw today.

I was very impressed with the power. We cut down a medium sized walnut tree with no problem. We also cut up some small pieces for an upcoming Rocket Stove experiment

It's nice to not need ear protection.

Well I saw where you were using it without your ears covered and was going to ask how loud it was. And you answered that in post. LOL While I am here go to a store that sells refrigerators and washers and stoves. That's where I go for big pieces of cardboard. :-)
