Stihl Battery Equipment- Is it Good Enough for the Lawn Care or Landscaping Pro?!? Blower, Chainsaw

Stan: When I was asked to do a review of the Stihl battery-powered equipment, I said, "Let me think about it." And I didn't get back to them right away, but last year at about this time, I was loading chainsaws and blowers and gear up into one of my employee's brand new Jeep. It's brand spanking new.

Echo Chainsaw Review - Out with Stihl & Husqvarna, in with Echo

Took it all away. I went to a professional tree company and I removed all their Stihl and Husqvarna chainsaws for thirty days. Echo wants me to be a part of an advisory group that gives them feedback on how they can improve their equipment. I think they're going to get more than they bargained for. Today there are two parts to this video. In the first part, we get to meet up with Scott at a big tree removal project using a crane. In the second part of this video, we get to hook back up with Scott after he has used the chainsaws for thirty days. Let's see how this goes. Three, Two, One How long have you had this company? We started it 1993. Our main chainsaws are all Stihls. You also have to have a loader and Bobocat or we use a swinger. Otherwise, you're just spinning your wheels. So why did the roll the blade like that? It's loaded up with saw dust it is cutting so fast so that the sawdust gets built up underneath the chain there. So you charge how much? Six to six fifty an...

Chainsaw Review- Gas or Electric - Does Dewalt Stand a Chance?

We're going to be talking about chainsaws today, and specifically their applications. we're not going to go in technical details of how many cc's a gas powered chainsaw may have; if you want those kind of details I'm going to recommend you go check out my friends at the Tools in Action crew over on YouTube.

Tools in Action

Tools in Action show: What's up you guys?! Welcome to the Tool-a-Thon. It's going to be a weekly show where we show you guys the latest in tool innovation. Stan: They have phenomenal reviews! Today what we're going to be talking about is real world application. When you may need a gas powered chain saw, and IF an electric chainsaw could even be a viable option in your arsenal. So let's get started. Three, two, one. Alright, before I get started, the one thing I want to point out is I've never accepted any kind of money to do a tool review. That way I get to say what I want about all of these tools, good, bad, or in between, the companies can't control me. That may...
