When is a chainsaw not just a simple portable tool used to cut wood? When it’s powered by a 4.1-liter Holden V8 engine. This monster has the capability to mow straight through performance 550m hardwood in a mere 2.4-seconds without breaking a sweat.

“Want one of these serial tree-killing monsters? Too bad. Whitlands built the V8 saw purely as a marketing exercise.
