A chainsaw is the extended arm of forestry workers!
The system "Motus" consists of an electrical chainsaw and an external battery pack. The chainsaw is only about half as heavy as a gasoline-powered saw. This protects the entire body and reduces the risk of accidents.
There is a much smaller module in the battery pack included. During longer use, you can take advantage of the full battery capacity and at the same time you can relieve your arms. For a short use, you integrate the module into the saw and work without a battery pack.
There are no more harmful emissions, such as noise, exhaust and engine vibration.
