    No need to tune for elevation with electric. Not a big deal for most but for those that keep a trail saw its nice knowing it'll just work whether I'm at sea level or 12000ft.

    Also not a direct answer to your question, but I am going to express how much I dislike anything with proprietary batteries. Reason being at some point you are not going to be able to replace these batteries and the device will become a brick. Now I know Milwaukee uses proprietary batteries but it's different, they are a huge company that is not likely to go away or change battery formats just because they need to keep the doors open, unlike most other companies. For this reason I would far prefer going the route of Milwaukee for a chain saw or almost any cordless tools. Buy once, cry once.

    They make battery adapters to fit whatever battery you want in whatever drill you want if you look around. Maybe not the HF ones but all the big name brands. Nothing you couldn't rig up on your own with a 3D Printer and a soldering iron. As long as voltages are the same, should be fine.

    The advice I give people is to simply find an ecosystem that has the tools you intend to buy now as well as others that you’d be keen to have in the future and stick with it.

    Picked up the ICON 20-100 ft/lbs torque wrench from HF today because I had some things to take care of on my truck coming up that I’d like an accurate torque wrench for. I really like it. And for 1/4 of the price of a snap on with just as much if not more accuracy than the snap on I feel pretty good about the buy. Some of you may have seen the YouTube video of the guys who buys the snap on and icon torque wrenches and uses a torque calibrator to compare them and after quite a few different tests the ICON works slightly more accurately. I like the feel of the wrench and it feels like good quality. Depending on my needs, I might eventually pick up the 50-250 ft/lbs 1/2” torque wrench they have as well

    I've had a 60V Greenworks 14 or 16" saw for 2-3 years now. It's been perfect for home use where I only need it once every few months for - the occasional small tree or large branch fall. No maintenance except chain/lube. Maybe not what I'd use if I were in snow country putting up firewood for the winter, but for basic home stuff it's been great.

    Does anyone own a Harbor freight radiator pressure test kit? I bought the tool and it seems like the pump will build and hold pressure in itself when I haven’t even attached it to anything yet. When I press the relief button I can hear it release pressure. Is this normal?
