    Fresh from the thread on how we 3D printed the Makita battery to Ozito tool adapters...

    I was going to show it cutting wood then realised I had nobody else to film it and anyway one battery is near dead.

    One thing is, on my BiL's "proper" Makita 36V chainsaw it stops the instant you let go of the trigger. Video below shows how this one doesn't instantly stop though.

    Interesting how at the end of the video clip the tool stops after a short while as it knows it isn't seeing full voltage I guess because of the near dead battery:

    They can kill you just like a petrol one!

    The only thing dangerous about a chainsaw is the operator.

    Quiet, no petrol to store/mix, light, minimal maintenance, no worries about them starting after a winter stored in the shed...

    I like petrol stuff but it’s hard to deny that battery stuff does have some advantages. (There are downsides too obviously)
