I have an older Tornado cordless chainsaw that is probably an 8" saw, perfect for one handed use to cut scrub. Battery is NiCD and needs to be rebuilt for $50 to $60.

Or I see some new 10" cordless chain saws that at LiIon for a little over $120 but unsure if I could run them one handed.

I have two 20" gas chain saws to cut down trees.

I live in the woods and wife wants the areas of the woods visable from the house or drive beautified. You know the drill, happy wife, happy life.

I used one of these at work and liked it.

Easy to use one handed for limbing?

Yes.

But as always, exercise caution.

I got curious and looked around a bit.

https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DCCS620P1-...+xr+lithium+ion

Looks good as well, and works with other DeWalt tool batteries.

Lithium Ion is the way to go. I have some older Craftsman C3 tools that originally came with NiCd. I have switched to all lithium ion and they are night and day difference. Lighter, more powerful, and last much longer. The only thing I use the old NiCd for is in work lights. I wouldn't pay money to rebuild a NiCd anymore.

When you say switched to lithium, did you rebuild the battery packs with lithium batteries, or do something else?

Trees don't have plug ins.


Joking aside
A cord + trees + distance + chainsaw = accident waiting to happen.

No. I just bought them on sale and some were included with new tool purchases. I have 4 or 5 batteries now. They are great and don't suffer from the "memory effect" of NiCd.
