I'm now running 3 electric chainsaws. The E-go cordless is used for limbing, hedge topping and ladder work.

The corded Greenworks pole saw is used from the ground or a ladder. It lets me drop branches further from myself. It's also very useful on the roof, for trimming anything within reach.

This corded Stihl is the most powerful one. It's good for bulk cutting of firewood and for milling lumber. Some nice slabs were made last week.

I wasn't sure if I could say, being newish here...

The corded is a WORX 18"
Love it!

When my Stihl finally died and needed a quick replacement, I bought an 18" Poulin.
Let's just say I like it, but it's been around for 9+years, so it's done a good job for me.
