Our small trees are overgrown at the back of our property so I decided to take it on my own to trim some back. First of I had to untangle the two one hundred foot cords to reach the back side of the property. After getting those all hooked up I had to locate our electric chainsaw in the shed. What a mess my husband had to clean that up. After cutting the first branch the chain came off the saw I decided to throw it in the garbage. I wanted to the store to buy a new one I found an 18 volt cordless chainsaw made by Riobi, bought an extra battery and now I'm good to go with no extension cords.
