I would be one of them. I just had my neck reconstructed and I am the sole climber for my company. No more drop starting for me. This makes perfect sense for me.

$429 and up no bat or charger. Dealer $700 + everything together in stock

Feebay $799 or best offer shipped. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/201140652529?lpid=82

Be interesting to see how long the batts would last on a tree pruning job...

Nice for cutting crotch wood at the chipper, but price is a little steep for that application  imho

Now that Husky is allowing mail order sales again, there should be some competition for pricing.  Right now, Bailey's is offering to meet or beat any advertised Husqvarna price, including eBay or Amazon.

I have been impressed how much I can cut with the Oregon battery saw.  You have to remember that you are only using power when actually cutting: no idling, and no juice used between cuts.  And most limbing/pruning cuts are on smaller limbs. That said, I would not want to use one (any brand) without a spare battery.  I rather have a second battery charging in the truck to swap out, than carry that 17 pound battery backpack!

Would be nice and peaceful on a big pruning job, noise wise! I'm sure neighbors would appreciate that too.  Tomorrow (sat) were removing a large  hazardous Coast Live Oak and ironically, the permit we were required to get from the County stipulated no chipping, (haul away wood/brush) . Don't understand the reasoning as there's gonna be 4-5 hours if heavy saw work which is more offensive than a modern disk/drum chipper.  Weird...

A group of us do volunteer tree work in a wooded park.  We're restricted by bird nesting treaty noise bullshit during several months of the year.   I'm starting to think that the 536 with a loop of 63PS would be the ticket for a bucket saw during the restricted periods.  Hmmmmm.....

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

There are certainly other, 36-40v chainsaws and pole saws out there, if someone just wants to try one, or wants a less expensive one for limited use. I listed some in this thread:

http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/cordless-battery-ope-corded-electric/kobalt-40v-chainsaw-polesaw-etc/

I have high hopes for these Husqvarna's due to the brand, and due to some positive reviews from European members on other sites, where they have been available for a few years.

Any idea on run time per battery in relation to a gas counterpart? Tank to battery?  Or not even close?  If it was close to 1 to 1 I'd be tempted to have one of my climbers try one out...

I have been using the Oregon 40V saw for almost 3 years now.  The size and type of wood, of course, affect how much you can cut on one battery charge.  Green wood cuts easier than dry, dead, Australian nightmare species. The Husky saws and batteries are not identical, but Oregon has tried to answer this common question quantitatively in it's FAQ's:

Quote
A 4.0 Ah Battery Pack will last up to 400 cuts per charge in 2 to 3 in. (5 to 7 cm) diameter limbs. This performance may vary with user technique, chain sharpness, size, and type of wood. A 2.4 Ah Battery Pack will make up to 250 cuts and a 1.25 Ah Battery Pack will make up to 125 cuts in the same size wood. Cuts per charge will drop significantly with increasing diameter wood.
http://oregoncordless.com/support/faqs/

If it helps, I have attached some photos of what I was able to cut with one, 2.4 Ah battery on a few different occasions with the Oregon CS250 saw -***Note that the battery was not completely drained each time*** E.g. for the photo of the pine branches, and the other brush pile, that's all the cutting that needed to be done.  The larger oak logs were frozen. 

Chain was 3/8 low profile PowerSharp.  Some battery saws run 3/8 low profile (type 91); some run 3/8 low profile/narrow kerf (type 90); some run 1/4" chain.  The type of chain you run, and how sharp you keep it, will also influence how much your can cut with one battery charge, perhaps even more than how fast you cut.  I have also been using the Oregon cordless pole saw, which runs type 90 chain (separate thread on that with more photos http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/cordless-battery-ope-corded-electric/oregon-40v-pole-saw/).

I'd be damn impressed if one of those battery saws could cut as much on one battery as my Poulan S25-CVA cuts on one tank of fuel.

Not an apples to apples comparison.  Different advantages to each.
