Hydraulic-Powered Chain SawIf you don't use a chain saw often, or if you always have a tractor nearby when you do use one, you might want to take a look at this hydraulic-powered chain saw.
Built by Stanley Hydraulic Tools in Oregon, it offers the highest power-to-weight ratio of any chain saw on the market. Hydraulic power eliminates the need for a flywheel to smooth power pulses so there's no chain coasting when you release the trigger. Kickback is also reduced without the centrifugal force developed by gas-driven saws with flywheels.
Can be ordered for use with either open or closed-center hydraulics. It's fitted with a 14-in. bar.
Prices range from $999 to $1,155, de-pending on model. There are two different models with different power levels. Under-water models also available.
