Ryobi RY40510

Price: about $190; ryobitools.com

You won't fell much of a tree with this 10-incher, but it's perfect for big pruning jobs and storm-damage cleanup. We like the long run time, the battery gauge, and the tool-less tensioner. The handle is less than comfortable, so long jobs could be difficult. The battery's location, ahead of the handle, keeps the saw well balanced when slicing logs, but it feels awkward if you run the blade parallel to the ground.
