Hi Jonathan, talk to Aaron Southgate, head gardener etc at Buckfast Abbey - 
they moved on to battery husqvarnas a few years ago, to avoid disturbing the 
monks - those that weren’t pickled or racked with guilt over their massively 
profitable production of what the Scots call 'Wreck the Hoose Juice' or 
Buckie...
He is well impressed with them, and they have moved on to electric strimmers 
and hedgetrimmers

PS I know another local firm - contractors this time - and they use them and 
are happy with them as climbing and small pruning saws.

Subject: Battery v. fuel powered chainsaws 

A close friend of mine works for a firm that are exploring business 
opportunities with Husqvarna, battery powered chainsaws in particular. 

 

They would like expert opinions to validate some of the company's claims. 

 

With exception to processing my own firewood and knocking over the odd small 
tree for family and friends, my contracting days expired long before the 
birth of battery powered saws, so I cannot help. 

 

I am aware that there are many reviews online, but my friend's firm would be 
interested in speaking directly to any arb or forestry contractors who have 
been using these saws with an unbiased view of the pros and cons. 

 

If any of you are willing to help, please can you forward me your contact 
details (off forum) so that I pass them on to my friend. 

 

Many thanks, 

 

Jonathan Astill
