These types of blades work really well in dense shrubs, etc.  Fit where no chainsaw, and many hand saws, will not.  Seen them in many brands: Sears, Bosch, Black & Decker, Milwaukee, Porter-Cable, Freud/Diablo, Vermont American, etc.

And, juat to say on topic, they also work with cordless reciprocating saws!

Here is one more 'less-tha-one-full-battery' cut photo I ran across, using the 2.4 Ah battery.

I own one. I think it is a saw that has plenty of grunt for all climbing activities. A little slower in the big stuff, but it doesn't slow down like a gas job. I disassembled a70'x50' Black Oak today in less than an hr with the 536. I am very pleased with my purchase! Time will tell how long this saw will last throughout the day. Since I am primarily doing Oak removals right now do to Crypt Gall Wasp, I see this as a light quiet and torquey saw.
Agreed though, it may be dangerous for crews without communication in their helmets.

Kevin, thanks! I did get that, sorry for not replying. I bought fromTreestuff. Pricey? Yes! In today's use, very happy with the torque and quietness in the tree. I'm not cutting rounds, so my opinion may differ from others, but excellent saw.
I will completely agree with Magnus, in that battery power has a long way to go.  My Stihl 160 is a toy compared to this saw. That is only a yr I think. Better powered saws are the future. My ins man sent me an OSHA top ten list of fines and gasoline powered equipment was in the top five. Although I don't use chaps or CP pants, my concern is the continuous torque of these saws.

We did a very informal chaps test at a recent GTG, with my Oregon CS250, and an old pair of Husqvarna chaps.  Not quantitative or conclusive, but the chaps stopped the chain. 

The Oregon saw has circuitry that shuts the saw down when overloaded, instead of stalling, or burning up the motor.  The protective fibers jammed up the nose sprocket on that saw, causing the saw to cut out.  I know that chaps are not rated for electric saws, and that wearing chaps while climbing creates some issues.  But they did appear to provide some protection.

Ran the T536li at the dealer today in a hard 10" log and was pleasantly surprised how well it performed.  Dealer us bringing some demo saw to our yard next week.   I'll see if I can get some vids to share/compare...

Have not found a local dealer stocking them here.  I think that they are afraid in investing in a 'novelty' until there is a demonstrated demand.

Cut4fun had a Oregon battery powered demo saw at his house a few years ago. I figured it to be a very viable device for a pruning saw. A must for the lady or a mechanically challenged man. Keeping up with the battery would be less trouble in the long run than keeping canned fuel pre-mix on the shelf.

Saw felt good and the dealer will be letting us use the demo saw for a few days once the back ordered chargers come in. I think the saw would be great for smaller tree pruning jobs and sure make for a peaceful quiet day. Lol

Would it be worth using as a bucket saw?  At the park where I do volunteer work, we're restricted to only cutting from November 1 through April or so due to the 'bird nesting treaty' nonsense (damn marbled murlet and spotted owl).  During April-October we can only run 'regular' saws when structures, trails, roads, or campsites are threatened by hazard trees.  Pruning and such is basically verboten during that time.  Anywho...........................I've been thinking about getting the OSD people to spring for a couple of these battery powered Huskys for cutting during the 'quiet' months.

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.
