All the machines in Mountfield’s Freedom48 Range are driven by a single high-specification lithium-ion battery, so you’ll be able to build-up a comprehensive tool-collection with just the one practical and convenient power-source at its heart.
The Mountfield MC-48LI 48v Cordless Chainsaw features a super-efficient, zero-maintenance Mountfield DigiTorq motor that will prove far more durable than conventional units; and which offers around 70% less vibration and 30% more torque.
It employs premium automatically-lubricated Oregon-brand cutting-gear (40cm), so you can be sure super-smooth cutting-performance will be maintained over time; and it’s equipped with a translucent oil-tank that makes level-checking easy, in turn ensuring you won’t run dry.
So as to optimise user-safety, Mountfield have furnished the MC-48 with a fast-acting electronic/inertia-triggered chain-brake; a hand-guard; and a quick-release throttle trigger.
Tool-free chain-tensioning means making performance-boosting adjustments is fast and hassle-free; while a weight of just 4kg ensures you’ll be able to complete time-consuming jobs without tiring.
This model delivers an impressive 50-minute run-time on one charge* – this roughly equates to 150 cuts in 10cm logs.
The following batteries are available: 48v/2Ah and 48v/4Ah. Please note: Battery & Charger must be purchased separately.
You need to top up chain oil a lot but keeps it sharp and cutting 6" logs fine. I will ill now by the brush cutter, so watch this space

I was a bit dubious about getting a battery operated chainsaw. I didn't think it would have the power. I was wrong, this chainsaw is brilliant. I have used it to clear loads of established hedges and small trees. It was no effort for the chainsaw. The battery seems to go on for ever. I highly recommend it.
