If you’ve been following any of my social media platforms, then you already know that I have been doing some serious milling work lately. That being said, I was pumped when Milwaukee threw this Battery Powered Cordless Chainsaw Kit into the Q1 reviews for 2019. I am typically running gas powered chainsaws, which is something for me that I am fairly new to. But I am gaining experience quickly. Learning about chainsaws happens to be something I am super passionate about considering I am running some huge saws, having this smaller option has been AWESOME!

Typically, I use a gas powered chainsaw so I was interested to see the difference in power between a gas powered one and a battery powered one. The Milwaukee Battery Powered Cordless Chainsaw Kit advertises the same power and performance as a 40cc gas chainsaw and it really lives up to this! I was definitely impressed with the amount of power this thin had. I really like the fact that the Milwaukee Battery Powered Cordless Chainsaw Kit was able to maintain speed while cutting, never skipping a beat. This is definitely a quality tool that lives up to the name of having professional landscaper performance and durability. Another great thing if you’re already a Milwaukee fan is that the Milwaukee Battery Powered Cordless Chainsaw Kit is fully compatible with the M18 system, which features over 175+ tools. I have featured some other M18 tools on my blog as well, so knowing that they are all compatible is just one more reason to add this to your arsenal if you already have a nice M18 collection. One last thing I love about this chainsaw is that it uses what they call REDLINK PLUS Intelligence. What is this you might ask? Well, it ensures that the chainsaw is performing at optimal levels and prevents any overload when doing a large scale job. When you invest this much money into a tool, REDLINK Plus intelligence is important to ensure that you don’t burn the tool out or overload it.
The price of the Milwaukee Battery Powered Cordless Chainsaw Kit is comparable to other chainsaws of the same caliber coming in at $299 for just the tool itself. It definitely can compete with other gas powered chainsaws and is definitely a great option if you’re looking to upgrade your chainsaw or switch from gas to battery powered.
I love this thing! Plain and simple. with a MONSTER battery that comes with it, I love how light and easily approachable this saw it. I can keep it in my truck cab, take it anywhere basically, and it fires right up. No pull start, no gas, no oil, none of that hassle. Now does it pack the same punch as my gas saws, no. Is it highly versatile and powerful enough for simple tasks, you're damn right. I honestly don't even care about the price point in all honesty, a cordless chainsaw with no gas is a game changer, and I don't know of a better one on the market. Let 's not even get into how powerful the Milwaukee battery system is!
