If your going to use it a lot you don't want a cheap saw and the ones that will hold up to hard work will start out at $175.00 to as much as $550.00. If you don't have generator thats another added cost. The gas powered pole saws that I have used use the same power head as a weed eater.

Where some of us live, we can't always count on the power being on. Especially in the winter and after storms, so it's nice to have a generator to run the well and refrig. I picked up a used RV 3500 watt genny for $150, new it's around $300. Believe it or not, the 4 cycle genny uses less gas than a chain saw, starts on one or two easy pulls, only weighs 100 pounds. I put a chain around it, connect it to the loader and off I go to the woods. My total cost, even if I bought a new genny $300, saw $100, would be around $400. The upside to an RV genny is it has a 30 amp 120v plug and is very quiet.

Keep in mind, it's nice to have back up electricity too. Like doing 2 things at once.

George not knocking the electric saw if you like it. I personally have used three differant brands of electric chainsaws and was not impressed with any of them.I also don't like dragging an electric cord around when cleaning up tops and you be careful with electric saw because they will cut through protective clothing. I can cut wood faster with gas powered over electric. My saws don't use a lot of gas .I can cut 2 rank of wood to length in an afternoon and use only 1/2 gasoline.
