My STIHL dear is pretty much a 'pro' shop.  I guess that these could help bring in more homeowner customers, but not sure how they would handle each other!

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, kinda annoying but if it keeps the motor from overheating and helps provide a long service life then its worth it.

I have a few of them ordered and should be in next week. We are planning on doing a little comparison video of it to the PS-32. See how it stacks up for cut times and battery life compared to a gas counterpart.

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.
