Lowe's has the 14 inch Ego chainsaw on sale right now.  I picked one up when we got home yesterday afternoon.  

 

My initial impressions are extremely positive.  I am probably going to pick up a 5ah battery for it this week.  This is exactly what I need in case I get blocked in by a downed tree on some old mountain road.

 

They are $219 right now with the battery and charger.  

Good deal! Thanks for the heads up.

Cool, glad it worked out. I checked the home despot last time in to see their pricing, none in stock. I didn't ask cuz odds are they wouldn't know... I like the improved battery gauge, mine simply has a green or red/dead, no indication of percentage left- that's helpful.  One thing to always have with the battery operated saws is the appropriate chain file. It's typically pretty easy to keep the teeth out of the rocks/gravel for a road clearing but on occasion they meet and it doesn't take much to knock back the cut efficiency by 50%.
