A 5000 watt inverter requires at least 416 amps for full output using a 12V battery. It's very difficult to make connections that won't drop significant voltage. You can get inverters that run on 24V and 48V which will draw proportionally less current. If you can get 120-150 VDC from the solar cells, and 10 12V batteries in series, you could use that for the DC bus link voltage of a 120 VAC single phase VFD, and with twice that you could get 208/240 VAC three phase. Also, if the chainsaw has a universal motor, it might run on raw DC.

Looks like it would make a wonderful sail. So if the sun is not shining but the wind is blowing, make the panels adjustable to use wind power. Or at least be able to set them so that the wind doesn't work against you, or cause the entire contraption to get blown over. ;)
