Husqvarna’s batteries are 40 Volt. Not 36 Volt. Stihl uses 36 Volt batteries.

Though the company seems reticent to release hard information about the chain speed”

It’s listed right in the manual….. – Maximum chain speed / (savE), 24 m/s (18 m/s)
So about 78.74 ft/s in normal mode and 59.06 ft/s in savE mode.

Call me old fashioned, but I consider a product manual hard information.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
