I have an 82v Greenworks Commercial chainsaw and it is very powerful for an electric saw. I can out cut a Husky 55 with it. I found that even though Greenworks recommends and includes the 4 Ah battery with the package, that I get noticeably more power and performance with the 5 Ah battery. There is a slight weight gain, but the added power is worth it. I did a few comparisons with the batteries on youtube.
