My dream chainsaw.Highly rated,professional quality.My dream includes making my own power with solar,more than I do so now....so this is it.
About 550.00 bucks,so dont own one....yet,LOL =================== MSE 220 Electric Chain Saw
Electric Series 1207 Professional Use
This sleek, hard working electric chain saw was created with the professional in mind. With a sturdy design and heavy-duty magnesium construction, the MSE 220 has a significantly higher cutting speed than the MSE 180 C-BQ, making it the most powerful in its class. Lightweight and practical, this saw is even quiet enough to perform indoors.

Reviewers consistently name the Husqvarna 316E the best electric chainsaw for frequent use. It's not only quieter than gas chainsaws, but also quieter than most electric models. Its anti-vibration handle makes the Husqvarna 316 a good choice for long or frequent cutting sessions, and its array of safety features exceeds those of most electric chainsaws. They include an inertia-activated chain brake and a cutting bar and chain that reduce kickback. If you want a less expensive electric chainsaw for lighter use, you may want to consider the Craftsman 34118 (*Est. $100), which also boasts excellent safety features.
