I'll give you my perspective, though it is not a compelling one for all chainsaw users.

I use my Milwaukee episodically, frequently just for firewood and minor trimming trees. I harvest as much 'yard wood' as possible in my neighborhood. Last time I used my saw was a week ago, when I sawed three 2 1/2" to 3" planks from a log I got when a neighbor had a large sweet gum felled. That piece also yielded two outer slabs that are becoming one bowl and one tray.

The saw had been idle over a month when I used it. It was ready to go as soon as I inserted the battery. I've had Stihl and Husqvarna saws before that would never sit idle for long periods, and then fire right up for a 15 or 20 minute session.

I got good straight cuts in that 22" section, and put my saw away confident that, when I next need it, it will be ready.

That's the kind of saw I need.
