The price tag might shock you a little but that can be made up with the enjoyment of quiet mowing provided by the mower.

Dewalt cordless chain saw

DeWalt DCCS690H1

This saw, along with the Stihl, has the highest amp-hour battery of the group. The design of the tool-free chain tensioner is top notch, and we liked the quarter-turn oil reservoir cap and wide oil-filling opening. It’s one of a few saws that have variable speed. Our only criticism is that the space between the hand guard and the handle is a little tight.

Ego Power Invert

EGO Nexus Escape 150-Watt Power Inverter

If you don’t need something as powerful as EGO’s Nexus Power Station, you can try the slimmer EGO Nexus Escape 150-watt power inverter. This power inverter has two USB ports and one 120V AC power outlet. It comes with a five-year warranty and will power TVs, routers, lamps, speakers and more.

Greenworks cordless chain saw

Greenworks GCS80420

One of the most powerful saws in the group, the Greenworks cut fast without bogging down. The 2-amp-hour battery provided only about half as many cuts as saws with 4- to 6-amp-hour batteries. We liked that the oil reservoir level was easy to see. This helps prevent messy overfilling. If you’re looking for a powerful saw with a long bar and don’t mind the shorter run-time and the absence of a tool-free chain tensioner, this is a good choice.

Ryobi P507 Circular Saw

Weighing only 6.5 lbs., this is one of the lightest cordless circular saws we tried. It was easy to control with either hand and easy to handle on a vertical surface. Its shoe isn’t very large, but that’s what you’d expect from such a super-compact saw.

DeWalt Miter Saw
Family Handyman

DeWalt 12-Inch Miter Saw with Two FLEXVOLT Batteries

Pros have been reluctant to cut the cord on larger tools because of a reduction in power and limited run-times. But DeWalt has addressed those concerns with a pro-grade double-bevel compound sliding miter saw equipped with a brushless motor run by two powerful FLEXVOLT batteries. And if there’s a plug-in handy, the saw can be converted to a corded saw by means of an adapter.

The versatility of the new smart FLEXVOLT batteries that power this saw is another big plus. Two of these 60-volt batteries can be combined to produce 120 volts in larger tools like this miter saw. Or one battery can be used to power 60-volt tools like a cordless DeWalt circ saw or grinder. But here’s where it gets interesting: This very same 60-volt battery knows when you plug it into a 20-volt tool and will provide 20 volts of power with 6.0 amp-hours of run-time. That’s up to four times the run-time of previous batteries (a 9AH version will be available soon).

Now you only need a couple batteries to power a whole arsenal of tools, including the tools you already own. The complete package, including the DHS790AT2 saw has two FLEXVOLT batteries, dual-port charger and a corded power supply.

Makita XSR01 Circular Saw

This saw differs from the others in several ways: It takes two 18V batteries and delivers awesome power and exceptional run-time. Of all the cordless circular saws we tried, it performed most like a corded saw. It’s also large and heavy. It’s a great tool for big, tough jobs, but maybe not your best choice for standard duty.
