I ran the Forestry Commission chain saw workshop for the Kielder area for 2 years half a lifetime ago, and like they say, first cut is the deepest! Sorry about that....

Some tools you can't do without but my favourite is one that does stuff that is tricky with anything else. The oscillating multi tool. Sold on TV shopping channels for stupid money but get one of e bay for £50 or less. Brilliant

4M, got a circular saw last year to cut up some railway sleepers, £25 from B&Q. Get one!

Quite an adrenalin rush if your attention lapses & it starts to "walk back" towards you at over 4,000 rpm.

Angle grinder without a doubt. Seized nuts and bolts miraculously free off as soon as they hear it fire up.

Of the ones you listed, has to be the angle grinder, but not listed is the Stihl Kombi system - in fact you can probably get an angle grinder attachment for it...
