I need a rubber boot to work in during the hot months. I currently use insulated Muck boots and my feet and shins sweat to death. Any recommendations?

Lacrosse Alpha Agility snake boots.

Non-insulated and VERY comfortable.

They may be the lightest rubber boots I have ever worn.

Are they durable enough to chainsaw, hang stands, etc?

Lacross Grange is what a lot of people wear here. Do you need them up to your knee? Something shorter would be cooler in the summer.
I shouldn't need them to the knees in the summer.

I have a pair of Nat‘s 1645 steel toe rubber boots purchased from Amazon. Haven’t used these a whole lot, but so far I like them so far & the steel toe is a plus for me. I got them because of the steel toes & the no insulation. Don’t know how they will hold up long term yet. I thought they had decent reviews.

I would think that they would be at least as durable as the Muck boots you have been using. And, very light and cool.
Is the rubber section snake proof or just the leg area?

According to Lacrosse, the whole boot has been tested with the balloon test with strikes from NA vipers. I feel pretty secure in them. They are very comfortable and light. They don't seem much heavier to me than the Lacrosse Alpha Burley Sports that I have been wearing (with snake gaiters) for 15+ years.
I was impressed by the comfort level.

They are a rubber boot, so your feet will sweat some. But, they aren't insulated, so they felt pretty cool on some hot turkey days.

Lacrosse Grange have been good to me for turkey and early deer season. I am not a fan of snake boots. I use the turtle skin gaiters instead

These are good summer boots. They will still be hot as rubber does not breath. Nothing feels better than walking through a cool creek when you are hot with them on. Almost like a/c on your feet. 🤣

I wear Stearns camo rubber boots this time of year. They get a bit warm, but they only have the lightest of liners.
I spray DEET on my rubber boots because my land is "tick central station" but they get a little tacky feeling from the DEET. Those ticks laugh at permethrin spray but the DEET repels them very well.
I will check into the Lacrosse. I dont know how they will react to the DEET but I will give them a try.

Loose boots with wool socks. Avoid cotton. Do you have to wear rubber boots? Cordura may serve you better.
