Nice upgrade. Looks like a pretty high capacity battery.
It's really great not to have to hassle with a cord. In my youth, I managed to saw right through the cord. The patch job was a constant reminder.

Looks like a good workout too - wonder how long those beefy batteries are good for. Bet that batt cost as much as the saw(?)...

yes you are correct, the battery cost more than the saw if you buy the battery straight up. There are ways to get it a bit cheaper by buying combos or with promos. as for run time? this thing goes for days

Top of the toys Tony! Use an older model at work and the High Demand battery (4.0?) lasts. The newer model battery High output is suppose to be better with 9000 more cells allowing more power and cooler running. Depending on your usage 12.0 ah may last you 12 months! Your toy has a lot more metal and the dust port is a big plus. Enjoy!

Good on you, Tony, you are going to like that saw. Good brand too, I hope you kept the other one too for the small jobs. Now you can do some serious framing.
