This badge is intimidating compared to several others I’ve been researching, I like it.. going to spend the next 12 months mentally preparing to tackle this… really wanted an excuse to start a mushroom farm sooner!

I used to feel the same way, I love my 40v Ryobi chainsaws... not stinky, and not too loud, and best of all; I can charge the batteries with solar power.
