Husqvarna 120I battery Chainsaw
« on: June 04, 2020, 03:44:08 PM »
I recently bought a Husqvarna 120i Battery Chainsaw,  purely for travelling, ( I have a couple of Sthil saws and a husky in petrol for when required) I didn't want to have to carry 2 stroke fuel inside the canopy. It was bought to cut firewood  to suit the flatpack firepit and  the occasionally tree accross the track, anyway heres a link to a video I did,

I've had one for a while now - good gear! The 12v charger you can purchase will also come in handy when travelling.
Cheers

I wonder what the poor people are doing?

We've got the Ryobi version https://www.bunnings.com.au/ryobi-one-18v-cordless-chainsaw-skin-only_p3380992, which so far we've only used round the back yard on stuff up to ~4-6", & no dramas at all 8)

Yeah have the Ryobi too. Surprisingly good for the money. Always regret not picking up an ego one when masters was closing . I know a few on here did. I’ve since purchased ego wipper snipers and brush cutters and there battery tech is sensational .
Here for a good time, not a long time!

FWIW with the ryobi I don’t use bar oil but carry a can of spray oil . I find the cheaper saws with “wick” systems for bar lube over “oil pump “ systems leak and make a mess when not in use.

Just WD40 or similar & you spray the chain / bar ???

Certainly does :'( :-[, & Ryobi actually says to empty the oil tank when you're finished with the saw!

I got the 80V Victa branded saw on clearance from Bunnings, which is the same saw as the ego. Perfect camping saw and a bit larger than some battery saws. I use one of these to keep the storage bag dry without having to drain the oil, the saw does leak but not much. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Chainsaw-Plastic-Carrier-Tray-With-Strap-STOPS-Oil-Leaking-Bag-Carry-Case-Big/233184905060?hash=item364ae74764:g:VdIAAOSwWsNcoVou&frcectupt=true

It's not only the cheap ones!
A mate has a high end unit and it leaks within a day of being used then  cleaned!
NOT HAPPY JAN!

I wasn't thanks! I registered the purchase with Victa, would have thought they would have been in touch, I'll take it up with them.

And you are right the Victa is the same as the Greenworks stuff, not the Ego, my bad.

I decided to buy the Ozito battery chainsaw. They have a 5 year Replacement on the machine and 3 Year on the battery. I will flog the guts out of it . For the price very happy.

Hi Mark
I have one and also a friend of mine has one as well, both are now over a year old and done a far bit of yard work still going strong so far with no battery issues, his leaks a very small amount of chain oil and mine doesn't, don't know what brand of chain oil he uses, but I have been using penrite which I already had been using in my petrol Stihl.

It's great for smaller jobs, just pull it out, check the chain oil, attach battery and your away, no fueling up and starting the engine! recently been cutting 200mm mango branches

I,ve a Milwaukee with 2 x 12 amp batteries. 18 volt and I,ve cut wood up to 400mm.  Does it easy and although not a patch on the old petrol Husky the battery operated saws are a big bonus for campers. Especially with the 12 volt battery charger.  No more 2 stroke oil/petrol and 1 litre bottle of bar oil lasts a long time.  My saw does not leak bar oil either when not in use. :cheers:

80V saw too old and not repairable apparently, so Victa (Briggs and Stratton) are coming to the party with a new 82V chainsaw pack. Happy with that.

Did not know that.  You learn something every day.

Just found this on the net that describes the basic difference..I,ve used a lot of Techtroniic test gear as a technician but even then I was unaware of Ryobi and Milwaukee being part of the company...

30-Second Summary of Ryobi vs. Milwaukee

Ryobi and Milwaukee are both owned by Hong Kong based manufacturing company Techtronic Industries. Although they share the same parent company, Ryobi and Milwaukee are not the same; in fact, their positioning in the market is very different.

Ryobi is known for making professional-grade tools that are high-quality yet affordable. Their target market is homeowners and professionals looking for a lower cost option without sacrificing performance. Ryobi drills are reliable and high-performing but come with fewer features, which allows them to keep their prices low.

Milwaukee builds its products primarily for professional users while keeping homeowners in mind. Milwaukee drills come with extra features, more speed, and longer runtimes to fulfill the needs of professional and extreme DIYers; however, those extras come with a higher price tag.

Bottom line—if you’re on a budget and you need a drill to do small jobs around the house, Ryobi is your best option. If you’re planning to use your drill for more than just the occasional household project, spending a little more for Milwaukee’s extra features are worth it.
