I found it aggravating but its done for safety reasons.....the makita XCU03 chainsaw has a power button that has to pushed to power it up for the tool to work in addition to the standard trigger and operator presence lever. they also added an automatic shut down to it if the trigger went unused/depressed within 4 seconds then the power button needs pressed again, which is really annoying when limbing a top until you realize that just keeping the operator presence lever depressed keeps the tool "live". Chain brake engaged also kills the power so at least with the makita saw they have a "kill" switch on every feature they could add one.
