It is apparent that besides DeWalt and Makita, other tool companies are going to release their versions of cordless / battery operated chainsaws here in the near future. At some point I would like to see a side by side comparison between them. As I look more into battery operated power tools – I want to be able to invest in a “system” where I can share battery packs among my other tools.

The investment into a system is what each company is banking on. While DeWalt is the only major power tool brand represented, we just did a head to head of the top cordless models currently available under $400. Makita’s XCU03 wasn’t available in time, but we’ll be taking a closer look at it when it arrives.



I have the 20v Max OPE lineup and have found it to meet my needs so far. As a Dewalt fan, I’ll strongly consider upgrading to the FlexVolt versions in a few years, depending on how well DeWalt supports the new tools.


I hope to buy one of the DeWalt string trimmers this spring. I’d be really interested in seeing a comparison of the 40v vs this new max line trimmer. My suspicion is that the downside to the max version will be run time, though tool line battery compatibility is a major upside.

I already have the 40v hedge trimmer and do like it, though I probably should have gone with the 20 volt version as the 40 is more weight than I’d like.
