How to Select the Best Chainsaw A chainsaw is meant to make it easier for you to tame tall trees, cut firewood, or maintain your garden. One chainsaw doesn’t fit all, however. There is a broad range of chainsaws in the market and they’re built for specific tasks including general maintenance. They use different sources of power and come with different price tags. Be sure to read about a few chainsaws and reviews before buying one. How do you find the best chainsaw? Before picking a chainsaw, consider these 6 questions.

Discovering The Truth About Saws
If you’ll be using the chainsaw to remove debris a few times every year, or to trim a fallen branch, then the perfect choice can be a chainsaw that’s less powerful. As an electric chainsaw is quieter and won’t disturb the peace in your neighborhood, it’s also perfect suitable for residential homes. For bigger projects or remote areas with many trees in a forest, a portable gas chainsaw with a bigger and stronger engine is perfect. Have you used chainsaws before? If you’ve never ever operated a chainsaw, it’s probably not wise to purchase a powerful and bulky model that you could find hard to control. Go for a smaller model that’s easy to handle and less powerful but can still do the job. Smaller chainsaws are easier to control especially in you’re working in a cramped space. A heavier chainsaw may put extra strain in your hands as well as arms and can be a huge safety risk especially if you’ve not used chainsaws before. However, if you must use a heavier and bigger chainsaw, make sure you’re with someone else while working. How regularly will you use the chainsaw? If you’ll use the chainsaw for simple tasks around your home a few times annually, again it’s wise to pick a battery-powered or electric model as it needs less maintenance when compared with gas-powered models. What types of trees are you planning to cut? If you plan to cut down big trees, especially hardwood such as ash, hickory, dogwood, oak and beech, then you should get a stronger chainsaw. If you opt for a less powerful chainsaw, felling hardwood trees will be put excessive wear and tear and strain on the chainsaw. Therefore, make sure to choose a more heavy duty model for hardwood and a smaller, less powerful chainsaw for softwood. What’s the thickness of the trees you will be cutting? For cutting different widths or sizes of logs, consider the length of a chainsaw’s guide bar. Shorter guide bars are perfect for smaller widths of logs. A larger guide bar, in contrast, is best for heavy cutting tasks and wider logs.
