When it comes to power tools, Makita products are usually a big hit. This Japanese brand, which has been around for over 100 years, is known for producing superior products, something that I can personally confirm in terms of their cordless leaf blower that I recently reviewed.
However, Storm Arwen left me longing for the days when it was just leaves that littered my farm. The super-strong winds took down several mature trees, along with plenty of other branches, so I needed a good chainsaw to help me tidy up. As much as I love Makita products, I was doubtful as to whether a cordless chainsaw would be powerful enough for the job, so I was eager to find out whether or not I would be proved wrong.
