Does anyone know what gloves and chaps etc are rated for electric chainsaws. I can’t find that info anywhere. Apparently regular chainsaw gloves are not suitable for use with the electric saws.

Normal saw protection will work just fine, no need for electric saw protection. Electric saws are direct drive, and while they have higher torque, they don't have a fly wheel so their chains stop considerably faster than a gas saw.

Saw protection is last line of defense after body positioning and skill.
