We demoed the new brushless Makita saw a few weeks back and found it to be pretty impressive for battery powered, but havent ran anyone elses to compare it to. We did notice that it has an overload protection on the motor and trying to push to hard it would kick out and force you to release the trigger to reset it . . .
Side-by-side is really the only way to compare these saws.  Too easy to get bamboozled by Volts, Amps, and other ratings, or by marketing claims. Most battery saws have the overload protection, I believe; need to have a sharp chain and let the saw do the work.
