Stihl MSA 200 C-BQ

This electric saw is ideal for pruning away branches damaged over the winter or bucking felled trees into log sections. The 36-volt lithium-ion battery won't match a gas model's power – then again, the MSA 200 is not meant to fell 80-foot-tall oaks – but the 14-inch-long bar is robust enough for all but the biggest jobs and will give you 35 minutes of cut time on a full charge. [From $670;]
