How to Buy the Right Chainsaw
To choose the right chainsaw, evaluate your cutting needs. Working at your home requires a different type of chainsaw than working on a farm or harvesting timber. Each of these demands a different type of chainsaw. Read the following for more information:
For cutting limbs or young saplings, use an electric chainsaw. They are lighter than gas powered saws, making them easier to operate. Electric saws are quieter, easier to start, and more economical. They also come with automatic oilers, and can be battery-powered for greater mobility.
Gas-powered chinsaws have enough power to handle really big, tough jobs. They come in a wide range of bar lengths, so you can choose the perfect one for any job. Some feature quick-starting ignition, quick adjusting chains, and mufflers to make them a bit quieter.
Whether you choose an electric or gas-powered saw, there are several specifications to consider:
A chainsaw bar dictates the length of the cutting edge. Chainsaw bars vary from 12 to 36 inches. For safety, remember to use the shortest bar possible for the job.
A low kickback chain is good for lightweight use. Narrow kerf chains leave a narrow groove. Ripping chains require special training to use, but can be used on even the toughest jobs.
