The Electric OREGON PowerNow Chainsaw Cuts Down on Blaring Noise

In a horror movie situation, the only thing scarier than hearing a chainsaw wielded by a maniac is having a silent one like the OREGON PowerNow Chainsaw creep up on the victim in distress.

Okay, so the OREGON PowerNow Chainsaw isn't 100 percent silent; however, it is a lot quieter than the average chainsaw. That's mainly because it is electric-powered rather than gas-powered. It packs a large endurance battery pack that runs at 40V MAX. Because of this, users don't even have to pull on the cord to start the chainsaw up; simply pull the trigger and it'll be ready to go. Another benefit is that once the blade starts to get dull, its built-in chain sharpening mechanism will kick in to keep it sharp.
