It would nice to not have to lug that lawn tractor battery around. I have plenty of 20v max batteries. Not sure exactly how to adapt it to my hobbico starter but I could figure it out. Probably just an adaptor plate?

"Attractive" ???

Just making objective comparisons Dave.
More power, less weight, no spilled acid, no voltage drop,no cords, easy charging.... Are all attractive benefits to consider when choosing.

Honest

Got it Gary, thanks. I'll order 6 dca1820 aftermarket adaptors, 1 for my starter and the other 5 for my old 18v tools.

I'm studying on a 60 VDC chain saw, maybe I'm not totally hopeless.

Dave, I know the zip needed to start a gas chain saw fades with age but Stihl has an easy-start system on their ms170 and other models that works quite well. You slowly pull the starter rope and it winds a spring that automatically releases to flip the engine over. The Polish Princess does fine with it.

This is the one I used on the small Sullivan shown in a previous pic. It is not angled like the Dewalt. I actually like it better and it costs less to boot!

Here is one for $12, shipped!:

The Norwegian Princess cuts her 1/2 acre grass patch with a 36 volt Toro mower. Her Chainsaw is a battery powered saw. No gaspoline yard equipment aside from her little Harbor Fright generator. She hates gaspoline too.
My own chainsaws are 40 and 50 year old McCulloch saws.One is an 80cc, the other a 100cc. Used them a LOT just a few years ago. They still start and run fine. But since the princess now has her own saw........

The electric would be the secondary saw, the big 50 cc Husky will always be the 1st choice, it has a compression release and starts first pull every time, the 46 cc Poulan, rarely starts on the first pull. That Easy Start sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out.

I caved in and looked inside the 1.15 when I swore I wasn't going to, the valve heads are a light brown the piston top is clean in the center and light brown on the edge. The rear bearing is clean and shiny. A winner I'm glad to have.
My ancient Joss Stick 90 will be it's first home.

Maybe slow for a saw nearly as old as I am. But we both still cut wood, maybe slowly?

The 100 turns a 15 x 6 faster than their bench mark.
Horizon's specs for the 115 are somewhat surprising, I just ran 14 oz of fuel through my new to me 115
This engine is clean running throughout the entire rpm band. It has so much compression, I chickened out on using the chicken stick and went straight to the starter. The Sullivan Hi Tork turns it very well. The chicken stick would have notched the backside of the Xoar.
Saito ======1.15-a
Fuel=======Wildcat 10%/18% full syn.

Prop======Xoar 15 x 8
Exhaust=----Stock 1.15 cast muffler
Max rpm @ half tank==8,340
Idle rpm @ half tank==1,990, LS needle was perfect as received.

For some reason posting makes an awful mess out of the specs.

I guess it beats typing the whole thing line by line. It appears that a 15 x 8 is a better bench mark prop.

Showtime 90 sporting Saito FA-115.
I usually start my FA 115s with a glove and a back flip. Get em wet and spin them the wrong way. Works great.

Your prop choice is about right. (15-8)

Well, I did add about 2 ounces of brass in the nose
Very similar to the weight and size of the Toledo Spl, and that flew very well on a 72., even better on the 82.
This does have a bit more drag, hence the 82.
