So, much surprise and happiness when the parcel was unwrapped on Christmas day. Thanks to a very generous Christmas present from Mark and all the other members of DAGS (deer stalking group), we are now proud owners of an electric chainsaw!
What a difference! It starts just by pushing a button, so no wrestling with pull cords. No nasty petrol, quiet, only weighs 4 kilos, it chopped up firewood beautifully and no doubt will do the same when felling trees. The battery seems to last as long as my desire to use it.
Thanks chaps! Best ever Christmas present.
