I haven’t found one yet but that saw and chain are amazing in itself all my guys are loving the 540iWhat chain are ya'll running on your electric husky? Not seeing a lot of options.

Is there a compatible full chisle / non safety option?
I ordered mine from stafford equipment out of AL, delivered in 3 days. Shopped local first and they had stock of the saws and batteries but they couldn't come close on the price (I'll gladly pay a slight local premium but they were over $250 more) .I'm pretty interested in buying one myself and likely doing that same conversion, but I've never had a chance to see/feel the saw in person and they seem to be sold out everywhere...
I’m enjoying the 200x batteries - the 300 battery is considerably bigger (longer) and heavier (-+2.2 lbs) and doesn’t alter the performance, other than run time - as the old razor commercial used to say “I’d rather switch than fight”.I went for the kit with two BLi200X batteries, I'll order a 300x once they come back in.

The 300 does stick out both sides of the saw body - around 5/8”.Longer as in sticks out of the sides of the saw body further?
Are you running a 14 or 16" setup? I was thinking about weight already and thought a 16" bar might help balance the heavier 300x better.
Battery saws are very pleasant.Glad to hear you had a good experience with Stafford. I found them through google shopping and was always curious. Honestly I don't understand the Husky sales model... it seems like they try and sell through physical dealers mostly, then just a handful of seemingly random websites. Even Baileys was saying a month backorder last time I checked, one of the few other places that lists them for sale. It's 2021 damn it, just let us buy your stuff online, through your own website! Honestly I'd probably have bought all the stuff by now if it was that easy.
I want to buy the top-handle climber with a 14", the rear handle with a 16" and.... the telescoping pole saw which comes with a 12". Plus two chargers (one to stay home in the shop, one to bring with me just in case) and three or four batteries, I'm looking at a nearly $3k package. It will be kind of annoying having to buy THREE new types/sizes of chain, which are also only sold in a few places, but so it goes. I already have 4 gas climbing saws, 9 other gas ground/rear handle saws and 1 gas pole saw, but I'm looking to move to the battery age sooner rather than later.
