I wonder if it was the new stihl cordless electric if it might have gone even faster than your gas saw.
Unfortunately I have to say the two saws are in completely different leagues. The electric saw is at best equivalent to my climbing saw and the chainsaw I brought to the lab only has one model that's larger. A good way of judging the power of a chainsaw is to see what the recommended longest bar length is. If it can handle a longer bar it has more power and can cut larger wood or cut the same size wood faster. The electric isn't recommended for bars longer than 14" where as the 661 is rated for a 36" bar... Maybe if you had the solar cart set up and were using the plug in electric saw that stihl makes you would get equivalent times due to saving time not having to start the saw, or gas it.
