Black & Decker announced the release of a new cordless chainsaw yesterday. The specifics:
- 18V Battery Pack
- 6.2 lbs
- Up to 150 1-1/2″ diameter cuts on a single charge
- A low-kickback 8″ bar and chain
- Onboard oiling
It looks pretty slick, and it appears to be well designed for home use — where users will see the most benefit from electric over gas power. It should be great for cutting up yard debris or small trees into pieces small enough to pass trash pick-up rules.
It’s going to retail for $99.99 and should be available in home centers soon. We’ll pass on more information as we have a chance to look at one in person.
