Happy to be here!
Here's a first impressions review of my Milwaukee M18 Fuel Chainsaw. Having owned several gas chain saws over the years, and using them infrequently, they always gave me trouble. So when it came time to purchase a new saw I decided to try something different. As a quasi-survivalist I also appealed to me that I can charge the saw off a solar panel so the only expendable item is the bar oil. Bar oil doesn't go stale and two gallons of it would last me for years. The saw is also stupid quiet. I ran it the other morning in the back yard and my wife couldn't hear it inside the house. The battery life is good. One charge cuts enough wood to fill my truck bed. The down sides include having less power and run time than a gas saw and it's only a 16 inch bar. Over all I recommend it and am very happy with the purchase.
