    chainsaw

    How to choose a chainsaw.

    How do you pick a chainsaw that is right for you? Factors to consider are listed below. 

    Lumberjacks once dominated the chainsaw market. Today, chainsaws are used by many homeowners for cutting firewood, pruning trees and building fences. Chainsaws have grown in popularity, so have the options! Shopping for a new chainsaw can feel overwhelming with the increase of options.

    Husqvarna helps making a smart and informed chainsaw purchase with safety first of mind.  The information you need for the best chainsaw experience is provided by Husqvarna.

    Chainsaw size

    The first factor to consider when selecting a chainsaw is size. In general, the larger the chainsaw, the more power it has – larger chainsaws will be used for larger cutting tasks. Power can be measured by piston displacement (cc) and engine power (horsepower, or HP).

    Factors to consider:

    •        Personal experience. Choose a smaller saw that’s easy to handle and maneuver if you are newer to chainsaws. A chainsaw that is heavier will tire out your arms and hands, slowing down productivity and increasing risk.
    •        Size as well as the type of the wood should be considered. Felling trees or cutting into hardwood requires a larger chainsaw with more power.  Choosing a chainsaw that is too small may damage the chainsaw and may lead to unnecessary physical exersion.

    Guide bar length

    Length of the guide bar should be determined by tree size (if felling a tree) and by level of your expertise. A person used to using a chainsaw will want to have at least two guide bar lengths which will allow one to vary the guide bar length according to the job. In general, a shorter guide bar weighs less and is easier to maneuver when removing tree limbs. Longer guide bars are used for felling larger trees.

    Chainsaw type

    Four main types of chainsaw are offered depending on use:

    •        Homeowner/consumer chainsaws are compact, easier-to-use and specially designed for occasional residential use.
    •        Semi-professional chainsaws are built for performance and to by durable. Semi-professional saws are designed for occasional use in general clean-up and firewood cutting.
    •        Professional chainsaws provide a higher level of performance and ergonomics for foresters, loggers and arborists. Professional models are designed for  full-time use. Certain chainsaws are available with special features, such as heated handles.
    •        Arborist/tree care chainsaws are designed specifically for professional tree care work and care.
