Trying to move forward and get a tool which I can wield all day. The lowest price I can fin for the tool, battery and charger is near £600 - are they worth it ?
Experiences welcome but something to cut 1/4 to 1/2 inch is a necessity.

I tried the Stihl battery telescopic chainsaw high branch lopper thing and it was an awesome bit of kit. Lightweight and powerful and didn’t drain the battery too fast

RYOBI do a similar hedge trimmer - very good, but having motor at the top end may make the balance less ideal. Works well and costs under £250 with charger and battery.

After my left arm pumped up and I thought I was going to have a hearth attack whilst trying to start my Stihl Hedge trimmer After a winter in my shed ( the Stihl, not me) I decided I would bite the bullet and buy a battery version. The chainsaw I would get has a common battery with the hedge trimmer so would only need one for both tools. The cost for both saw and hedge trimmer and ak30 battery was £560 and I’d probably find a better deal with my local agri shop ( this was online) or at least they’d match it.

the hedge trimmer and bty was £380. But maybe your £500 one was bigger/ fancier.

I would highly recommend anything by Stihl . The advantage of battery powered is less weight and easy to start.. stihl 2 stroke powered multi tool is a great bit of kit but quite heavy

I am fairly sure, that the day is not far off when my dead body, will be found collapsed over one of the following:-

  1. Any (un-started) petrol driven piece of garden machinery.
  2. One unlaced hill boot.
  3. One unfixed gaiter.
