Husqvarna has come out with there 36v volt chainsaw, but only available in the US in North America, but the that's not what I want to talk about, what I want to talk about is there idea of a battery backpack for the chainsaw and there other battery products, I don't know all the specs on the battery itself but I was just putting this out there as an idea for a new product. I got the EGO chainsaw for Christmas and it is wonderful, when it comes to power and getting through some fairly big and hard wood (14" maple) it has no problem and I have no doubt it can get through quite a bit bigger would that, the only issue I have with product is the life span of the battery (mind you its only the 2ah battery), on a full charge I have only been able to get 12-20 cuts on 10"-14" wood (maple), this is extremely inconvenient, seeing as where it takes forty mintutes to charge the 2ah hour battery on the standard charger, if I want to cut wood for a day or half a day I would need to buy two 4ah battery and the quick charger to be able to cut non stop all the time, just use one battery as the other one is charging, and really this is a good idea except for the fact that if I wanted to do that I would be out almost 600$!!! Which in my oppion is extremely expensive! So I was just putting the idea out there for a battery backpack which you would be able to charge through the night and use all day, because really thats the only way you can compare to a gas powered chainsaw, because filling up the gas tank doesn't take nearly as long as charging a battery... Now don't get me wrong, I love this chainsaw it feels great when your using it, its not heavy, and it does have amazing power, in the power regard it, does compare to an average gas powered chainsaw, but I can't cut wood all day taking 40min brakes every 15-20mins of working, and I can't afford to buy two of the bigger battery's (4ah battery) and the quick charger and be out 600$, becusae if that's what needs to be done then it would much more worth it to take all of that money and go and buy a very nice husky or sthil. If these changes could be taking into consideration, and maybe actually implimaented it would make your product unbeatable!! I really appreciate EGO allowing us buyers to give all of this feedback and would really appreciate if they actually took our idea into consideration (which I don't have any doubt that they don't). Thank you very much!
