Breakthrough Cordless Chainsaw Power
Because it is battery-powered, the PowerNow Chainsaw is much quieter than gas-powered chainsaws in use and is silent between cuts. This is ideal for early morning landscaping around homes or apartment buildings.

Blount, one of the world's largest manufacturers of saw chain, launched the new OREGON® PowerNow™ 40V MAX* Cordless Chainsaw. For the first time, a battery-powered chainsaw delivers a combination of performance and features that makes it a true alternative to many gas-powered chainsaws.
With spring coming, landscape contractors need more frequent visits, and are demanding quieter and more environmentally friendly alternatives to gas-powered chainsaws.
''Many landscapers use gas-powered chainsaws because they don't believe that cordless electric chainsaws have the power to perform,'' said Josh Huffman, senior marketing manager
What makes the Oregon PowerNow unique is its battery-power, and as a result it starts instantly without a pull cord and is much quieter than gas-powered chainsaws and silent between cuts.
The problem that it solves for the landscape contractor is two-fold. One, it offers grab and go convenience for felling a few trees or quick limbing. Just pull the chainsaw out of the truck and it's ready to go. No gas, pull cords, etc. While up in a tree, a dangerous place to pull a pull cord, you can simply push a button to start the Oregon PowerNow Chainsaw.
The PowerNow Chainsaw is not a replacement saw for gas-powered chainsaws, but another tool in a landscaper's arsenal.
