Which chainsaw should I buy? That’s a question I keep getting more frequent lately. Here is a roadmap
1. Electric or petrol?
The best electric chainsaw is (in my view wrongly) often done quite giggly, but they offer many advantages. First of all, they are, because they are much lighter and have no slip clutch, a lot safer. The chain is immediately stopped if you take your hand off the gas. [Edit, addition] This is the only way for some newer models. Furthermore, electric saw much cheaper, both in the purchase and in running costs (electricity is much cheaper than expensive gasoline chainsaw). Also, require electric saw much less maintenance; only clean and sharpen the chain. Again, saving costs again, moreover, is a power saw just super reliable.
Disadvantages are there: You obviously have a cord which in the field say the least, impractical. The wire you saw, that’s a real danger. A final point is an ability. The heaviest electric saws are approximately 2 kW, which is the lower limit of most of the medium-heavy gasoline saws. Most electric saws meet the 2 kW otherwise not sit and previously from 1400 to 1800 watts. Fine for not cutting it too full wood stove (if you have some patience), but not enough for serious work. It will also be noted that power (consumption) which are something other than the power output of a petrol saw. Anyway.Continue Reading
