Two stellar saws from Oregon

These two 40-volt saws bring power and convenience to your fingertips

Featuring no-fade lithium-ion power and a quick starting system without the hassle of pull cords or gasoline, the Oregon CS250 40V Max Chain Saw ($399, shown above) makes easy work of tough backyard cutting jobs. Another key feature is Oregon's Powersharp integrated chain sharpening system. With the pull of a small lever, users can precisely sharpen the chain in just a few seconds. And the 40-volt battery is compatible with Oregon's other cordless tools, including the new PS250 Pole Saw (249-449) that features a telescoping shaft that extends from about 7 ft. to more than 10 ft. Also of note, the oval-shape pole on this pole saw provides better control while trimming those problem branches in tall trees. oregonproducts.com
