Find The Best Battery-Powered Chainsaw Online Reviews

The great American chainsaw has undergone a revolution in the last decade. It’s gone electric­–or more precisely, cordless. The advent of high-capacity lithium storage cells improved forms of motors (especially brushless), and even the ability to quickly prototype power-tool bodies and configurations using 3D printing has produced something amazing: a quiet, clean-cutting, well-balanced, and productive chainsaw that runs on a battery. Check out five of our top choices below, or scroll deeper for more in-depth reviews of these and other options—plus buying advice.

What To Look For

When buying a battery-powered chainsaw, there are several factors you may wish to take into consideration. For many consumers, the price will play a part. While in some cases, it’s logical to assume that you get what you pay for, many buyers will look for value for money over a low purchase price. Different buyers also have varied priorities, and some will be willing to spend a lot more than others.

Another factor to consider is the brand name. Some consumers like to stick to a brand they have used before, or buy from a manufacturer that has been recommended in cordless chainsaw reviews, for example. Reviews are also useful for highlighting pros and cons, outlining the main features, and giving you an insight into performance provided by people who have actually used the chainsaw in question before.

If you’re in the market for a battery-powered chainsaw, you want to buy a high-quality product, which is affordable for you and suitable for the jobs and tasks you have in mind. If you’ve got a list of essential requirements, or you’re keen to see how different makes and models compare, check out these Battery Powered ChainSaw Machine Reviews.

  • MSA 200 C-B Chainsaw

Stihl is the only chainsaw manufacturer that makes its own chain, and it designed this one specifically for pruning, to give a smooth cut and to reduce tearing. The rest of the saw was designed from there, it appears, pretty much front to back: a small bar with a narrow nose for good access, a slim saw the body and a small but surprisingly capable motor. It took us only a couple of cuts to see those benefits. The saw proved to be a beautiful power tool with outstanding cut quality, for the sake of pruning, but its overall efficiency also enabled it to be an outstanding cross cutter. It zipped through one cookie after another, cranking them out like a wood disc machine. We like the saw’s lightweight, its lack of vibration, and its tool-free chain adjustment. Yes, the saw is expensive, but it’s every bit a Stihl saw.

  • Greenworks 20672 Battery Chainsaw

If you’re looking for a small, lightweight, cordless chainsaw that can reach high up into the trees, this might be the best deal for you. Not only is this battery-powered chainsaw low cost, but it takes the difficulty out of trimming high overgrown branches. With a few twists of the telescoping pole, you can reach an extra 8 feet in the air to cut limbs at a distance.

Additionally, this chainsaw weighs around 8 pounds, so you shouldn’t have any trouble holding it for long periods of time. As for cutting time, you’re getting a generous one hour on each charge. That’s more than enough for most people. However, it does take an equal amount of time (one hour) to recharge it.

Since you’re using this chainsaw at higher altitudes, the Automatic (Fixed Flow) Oiler is a perfect system for taking the guesswork out of oiling the bar and chain to ensure lifetime durability. The Tool-Less Chain Tensioning System is also a great addition to an already decent power tool, which allows you to fine-tune the chain without using any additional tools. If you’re looking for the best battery operated chainsaw with an extendable pole, you’ll be very happy with this one.

  • WORX WG303.1 16-Inch Electric Chainsaw

For those everyday homeowner yard tasks, this chainsaw does the job well as our Top Pick. Lightweight, yet more robust than smaller electric chainsaws, this sturdy saw features a 16-inch bar length that handles nicely for basic limb work and trimming, clearing bush, and cutting firewood, and their patented automatic chain tensioner alleviates any headaches of having to keep the chain blade is secure and tight.

How to View a Private Instagram Profile without Tools

Instagram is a social networking service that lets you share images and videos with your friends and family.

Only you or an approved follower can view your profile and its contents, but with private Instagram viewer apps, it is possible to check all photos without following or becoming a friend.

You can easily found these private Instagram viewer apps available online, and we’ve listed the top in this post for your reference.

Instagram has changed its algorithm over the last few years, making it much more difficult for you to share visible posts on Instagram. It gives top priority to posts made by users’ friends and family, with less likelihood of business posts being added to people’s queues. It provides even less weighting to business posts that include links likely to take people away from the Instagram app. To succeed on Instagram, businesses need to play the game well. And that includes Posting on Time really matters, targeting a time when people look at their Instagram accounts, but which doesn’t coincide with the time when most people upload their Instagram content.

How to View a Private Instagram Profile without Tools

There are plenty of websites out there that claim it’s easy to view an Instagram profile that’s hidden from the public. Unfortunately, those sites are lying to you.

You might be able to view an Instagram profile anonymously and collect data about a person who has their content set to private, but unless they add you to their Instagram follower list, you won’t be able to magically see their private content.

When people talk about tools that you can use to view private Instagram profiles, they’re referring to software that gathers information about a person online for you. Since these tools aren’t always reliable (or credible), it’s worth looking at some more legitimate ways to view private profiles instead.

If you desperately want to connect with someone on Instagram, send them a message letting them know why you want to connect. There’s nothing to guarantee that the person you ask to follow will accept your request. However, you can improve your chances by:

Asking politely: Use very gentle, kind wording to let someone know why you want to follow them. Maybe you’ve heard about them on other social media channels and want to get in touch over Instagram too. Be patient: Don’t send a dozen requests at once. Give the person you want to follow some time to mull over your request. Be genuine and valuable: Give people with private profiles a chance to see your value by sharing plenty of genuine, engaging content that your audience loves.

Sling TV Full Review – Is It Cost-Effective?

Unveiled in January 2015, Sling TV has more than 250,000 subscribers and is one of the fastest-growing television service providers in America. The service provides a selection of major cable channels that can be streamed through apps, digital media players and smart TVs. Sling TV complements subscription-based online services for cord-cutters and broadcasts television in a unique and engaging way.

It is specifically designed to be a full substitute for traditional pay television providers. Its subscription costs $20 per month as opposed to other pay television services that cost much higher. Sling TV can be streamed via Android and iOS devices, Amazon Fire TV, Windows PCs, Nexus Player and Samsung smart TVs.

Sling TV provides viewers with an alternative way to watch live TV without cable. It is an American internet protocol television service owned by Dish Network. How does Sling TV operate? What are some of the benefits and drawbacks of Sling TV? Here are comprehensive Sling TV reviews.


As mentioned, the Sling TV app is a no-contract way to get television content. Ironically, it was launched by Dish TV in 2015 though they don’t have the messy contracts or high costs of the parent company.

As I’ve shared in the past, we now get all of our content through the Amazon Fire Stick and are more than happy with that as a replacement. Check out our guide on the Fire Stick channels list to see what you can expect from the dongle.

We also get our local channels with the Mohu Leaf which has worked great for our needs. Sling TV is an Internet-based TV service that offers just over 30 channels for $25 per month. They offer a premium tier that offers all base channels for $40 per month.

You simply download the app to get started. You can get a free 7-day trial straight from the Sling TV website and be watching TV in a few short minutes.

Is It Cost-Effective?

Whether or not Sling TV is cost-effective largely depends on the perspective of each consumer. But by any measure, the $20 base package is affordable, compared to most basic cable packages.

However, the costs of adding extra packages can mount quickly. For example, those looking to access all of the English-speaking channels would need to pay an extra $55, bringing the total monthly bill to $75, for a total of 51 channels.3 Meanwhile, the average cable bill is over $100 per month.

Both cable consumers and Sling TV consumers encounter the same frustration of invariably paying for packages containing channels they’ll never watch. Even Sling’s core line-up contains obscure channels such as Polaris, Maker, Freeform, and Galavision, which few consumers have even heard of.


  • Extremely low cost. Most options on the market have had multiple price increases since launching. Sling TV raised its price once and has kept its service at just $30 per month.
  • Must-have networks. You can find almost every must-have network available through one of Sling TV’s packages.
  • It plays well with OTA antennas and equipment. Sling TV is the only service of its kind that not only plays well with over-the-air antennas and equipment but sells equipment that integrates with OTA architecture.
  • HD streaming available. Sling TV provides HD streaming quality, which many subscribers count as an improvement over their traditional cable TV.
  • A large app library for multiple devices. Sling TV offers a huge number of apps for streaming devices.


  • Limited-space DVR. One of Sling TV’s biggest weaknesses, you’ll only get a 10-hour DVR included for the cost.
  • Confusing package setup. Sling TV’s package options can be a bit confusing with a lot of channel cross-over between packages.
  • Only 1 stream for Sling Blue. The Sling Blue package offers only 1 stream per account, making it a poor option for account sharing.
  • Limited local broadcast network support. Sling TV has among the worst support for local broadcast networks, making an OTA antenna almost necessary.
  • Inadequate customer support. Sling TV’s customer support leaves a lot to be desired, with very slow response times.

New Year…New Vision…New You!

#49 – Create a Vision Board to attract what you truly desire this year

I am an avid reader of all kinds of magazines. I not only subscribe to at least 5 magazines myself but my friends recycle their magazines by sharing them with me when they come over or I go to their houses for a visit.

Since it’s a new year, I decided to make a personal Vision Board with some friends on a cold Sunday afternoon.  In anticipation of all the great changes I’m planning on making this year, I organized a fun day at my house with some friends to create personal Vision Boards.  We tore, cut and organized photos from all of those magazines that I’ve been meaning to recycle.  My friends are much more organized and faster than I am though, so they actually finished their boards.  I, on the other hand, have an envelope full of great pics, quotes and inspiring words that I am planning on gluing onto my very own vision board soon.  Just not quite yet.  I’m still in search of a few perfect photos.  I want to make sure that I capture everything I truly desire before I cement my wishes to the universe on a poster board that will hang in a very visible spot that I will see every day for the rest of the year. Mine is a work in progress that I plan to add to as the year progresses.  I’m always growing and therefore a “work in progress” too, so I thought having space to grow on my board was ok.  It’s my vision, after all, so I can do what I like with my personal board.

If you are feeling stuck or would like to open your heart to new desires, creating a vision board by yourself or with some friends might be just what the doctor ordered.  It was a lot of fun.  I highly recommend this activity. It would also be a great team building activity at school or even on a professional level; if your team has lost it’s focus or just needs to redefine goals or strategy.  If you are a manager with direct reports, why not ask your team members to make a smaller vision board of how they see your team’s vision and then share & discuss at your next staff meeting?  It might bring some great ideas to the surface, open the dialogue for things that need to be redefined or changed and also re-energize/motivate your team.  I bet this would a staff meeting that won’t be soon forgotten!?!

If you aren’t sold on Vision Boards yet, check out these sites that will give you some background on Vision Boards and also give some guidance about how to create one for yourself:


It's easy, just use stuff you already have at home.


Holiday Decorating Ideas…on a budget!

#55 – Budget Holiday Decorations…

A co-worker of mine is a fantastic holiday decorator and with her help, we transformed our office space into a Holiday Wonderland.  Her decorating skills on a budget inspired me to give you some holiday decorating ideas that you can do on a budget.  The decorating that we did at the office has put me…personally…in the “holiday spirit”.  I actually love coming to work in the morning and seeing all of the great decorations.  It makes me happy and excited at the thought of spending time with loved ones in a couple of weeks.

So…you’re thinking…that’s great, but just tell us how to do it already!  One of my favorite things that we did was to use wrapping paper in different colors (that we got at the Dollar Store, Target or Walmart) and then take framed art work that was hanging on the wall and wrap them like presents with a ribbon around them and a big bow with a plain ornament hanging off the middle of the bow with a paper clip.  The art in the room looks like gifts haning on the wall and really finished the room when we were done decorating with white lights (that we wrapped around pillars – in the office) and different colored ornaments that we hung from the ceiling tiles with paper clips. 

At home, if you have a dropped ceiling, you could do this…just prop the tiles up one at a time and use paperclips (you have to bend them to secure them to the ceiling tile frames) to hang the ornaments on (better if you tie nylon thread or string to the end of the ornament to attach to the paper clip and secure) at different lengths to create a really cool ceiling look. 

Go to the Dollar Store, Walmart or Target and pick ups a couple rolls of contrasting holiday wrapping paper, some wide wired ribbon in one color that goes with both papers, and a package of different colored ornaments that goes with or is contrasting to the paper you choose…at Walmart & Target…they have boxes with two to three different contrasting colored ornaments that you can buy for $15 to $20.  If  that is out of your budget for this year or you’ve already decorated but like this idea, put it on your list for your after Christmas shopping and get everything you need for next year’s decorating at 50% to 60% off. 

Another great decorating idea for the holidays is to use a large vase or hurricane and put two to three different colors of ornaments in the vase/hurricane and use it as centerpiece or in a corner of a room, if the vase is large enough. This looks very elegant and is also a favorite of Little Miss Idea.

I love how festive the office looks and am excited that we did it on a budget.  I couldn’t wait to share it with you.  Happy Holidays!

More Art ideas…beauty should be shared…right?

Back to the Art topic…a topic dear to my heart for many reasons…

#84 – Turning your Art into Prints, postcards, note-cards or magnets & selling them at craft fairs, farmer’s markets, holiday bazaar’s, websites or even at local gift shops…

There are sites out there that will turn your art into printed materials and possibly also drop ship them to your customers for you.  You will need to have high quality digital photos of any pieces that you might like to turn into prints, postcards, note-cards, magnets, t-shirts or caps.  If you don’t have a good digital camera, ask a friend to help you take photos of your pieces.  This will also help you inventory all of your art and will be helpful with another idea that I’ll share soon.

“Giclées”: Giclée (commonly pronounced “zhee-clay”) is the method used to turn high end art into lower priced prints or note cards.  Check with local print shops and see if they are able to do this and get a few quotes.   Don’t go with the first one you find, shop around for the best price and quality of what you are printing on.  It usually costs less per print or card to do more.  So if you are planning on selling more than a few, it would be a better deal to order say 100 instead of 25.  Especially if you are going to sell your note-cards, prints or magnets on sites like Etsy, Ebay or your own site.  Don’t forget to ask local gift stores if they’d like to carry your art wares…they might sell them on consignment, it’s worth an ask.

Check out Zazzle & Vista Print.  They do more than business cards and window decals.  How cool would it be to sell note cards, magnets or T-shirts that have your own handmade art on them?  Zazzle may even drop ship so you don’t have to store/stock inventory.  Just an idea for those of  you who are artsy, creative or photographers and are looking for another way to get your masterpieces out to the public.  Maybe someone can’t afford to buy the original painting, but would love to buy the print, note card or magnet and as long as you keep the prices reasonable, you might be pleasantly surprised by how many smaller items you sell.  Every penny counts these days, so cheers to selling your art in many different ways!

A Quick note about places to display your Art or Photos

I was just at a great local Day Spa (Ciao Bella in Littleton, CO) earlier today where I noticed they display local artists and photographer’s photo’s in their relaxation area. I thought “that is a GREAT idea.!”..what a great place to get exposure for your art or photos, especially if they are nature themed, peaceful or tranquil.  It’s worth asking your local Day Spa to display and help you sell your art and what a great way to collaborate with other local businesses.

A special note about Ciao Bella Day Spa in Littleton, for my Colorado followers.  They have a great 50/50 deal on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  You can get a custom facial or massage for $50 or a fun questions to ask your boyfriend combination of both for $100.  The Spa is lovely and very relaxing and my services were superb.  I highly recommend trying them out, especially if you can get away on a Tuesday or Wednesday for such a great deal!
