Powernow is here. Hope to  open and get it charged up for some weekend testing. 

MOS I will test 3 chains on a 2100 33cc rear handle to be able to tell you how the powersharp chain cuts.  All should be new out of box. This powersharp with powernow and a Carlton Semi Chisel and a Stihl PS3 Round Chisel.

There was a 16" powersharp set up for the 2100 in the box. So I will test that one on the 2100 chain test.

I couldnt wait to just see. So put the powernow with chain that was on it and did a 3-5 second sharpening and stuck it in a 6" ash that rock hard and another test piece about 8" w8ye had brought by.  I'm guessing some kind of very dry hardwood too?

The chain on the powernow cut really good. The powernow itself seemed a little underpowered to what I am used to in a gas saw. To be honest it is a very small saw with a 14" and it will cut what it was intended for. Smaller and lighter then I expected. It cut the 6"" ash easily. The bigger maybe 8" one pulled it down a little more but the chain cut great if you dont push on it.
 It is very light even with battery installed and I can see where a landscaper or homeowner will have a use for this saw. It was surprisingly quiet too. Just sounded like chain whirring around to me.

It has 3 batts with endurance on them. Is this the longer lasting batts?

If so. Do the endurance batts weigh more then the standard batt?

Hope to do some video and testing this weekend.

I'm glad they arrived.

The Endurance batteries are the larger capacity batteries.  The Endurance battery weighs in at 2.7 lbs and the Standard battery at 1.7 lbs.

Took some still pics of powernow and powersharp chain set up while out in the barn removing door on son's car to rebuild a worn hinge. Sure wish I would have just bought another hinge now. What a PITA.

Neat to see and understand how the chain is sharpened from the top down now.  ;D

The cutters stick up at a angle a little like the old barracuda chain but they are, overall, shaped completely different.

I can hardly wait to see it cut.
