Pros
Electric chainsaws are light and compact, so they’re not a burden to carry. They are quieter than gas chainsaws, and don’t leave the smell of gas in their wake. What’s more, when using an electric chainsaw, you don’t have to worry about mixing oil and gas. Best of all, an electric chainsaw starts with the touch of a button. Electric chainsaws are best used for sprucing up trees, trimming limbs, cutting small logs, and other cutting tasks around your home or yard.

Cons
Although electric chainsaws are smaller and easier to carry, most lack the power and stamina to cut down large trees. If you have big trees on your property that you want to remove or cut into firewood, a gas model is your best bet.

Electric chainsaws come in two types: corded and battery-powered. Lack of mobility is a drawback of corded saws. If you’re using a corded electric model, you’ll want to buy an extension cord. Even with the cord, you will be limited in how far you can go. If you need room to roam, cordless battery-powered chainsaws will do the trick. But they often lack the power of a corded chainsaw, further limiting what you can cut. That said, battery life has recently improved with higher voltage batteries.

Very true. I have a 14-inch Sears electric and use a 100-foot 14/3 cord, with a 20-foot 12/3 cord as an extension at times. It's a very hard worker and hasn't failed me for several years. I cut down an old 12-inch diameter cherry tree recently and bucked it into firewood lengths with that saw. I supplement it with a 9-foot electric pole-saw with a 6-inch chain. And also a 52-foot hand pole-saw, made of telescoping aluminum tubes. It's so heavy, that I have to lift it vertically and hold it there, braced against a tree, before I can attach the bottom two segments.

what do you have? i have a pole saw with a couple of attachments. once you start getting too far out it is difficult to use. i think each piece is about 8 feet, so 24 total feet up.

You obviously have experience with chainsaws and you have great posts. I just want to tell you that you should always check the date of the last post you're responding to; the last post on this thread was 10/20/2017 or last year. You are not the first to reply to an older post. I have done it even when knowing this can happen. It's not that it is bad to respond to older post; but sometimes the original posters have moved on or died or whatever.

In the meantime; welcome to our forum! I look forward to you sharing your knowledge!

Those reviews are all for POLE saws. Not much help for someone looking at a chainsaw. (And yes, older thread!)
