Comparing battery with petrol-powered chainsaws

Friday 26 Jan 2024

Looking for some early back from holiday reading? Check out the latest report from the Precision Silviculture Programme which details a trial comparing battery-powered chainsaws to traditional petrol-powered ones in waste thinning operations across five sites.

While there are key areas for improvement in power and battery management, there is also some promise. The next phase of testing this year will focus on early age thinnings and involve crews with limited prior experience, along with the introduction of backpack battery carriers and other approaches for better battery handling.

Check out the report for further details.
