6 Things You Should Consider When Buying A Gas Chainsaw
Ultimate Gas Chainsaw Buyer's Guide by Farmertec
If you are doing a large-scale project on tree felling, you may want something more important than just being portable, which an electric chainsaw provides. For big jobs, choose a gas-powered chainsaw. Sure, they require fuel and more maintenance. But these heavy-duty tools are extremely efficient for cutting, pruning and felling trees when you use them correctly.
Here are some things to look for when shopping for a gas-powered chainsaw:
While larger saws provide a lot of power for big jobs, they are also heavier. Select a saw that's light enough for you to maneuver effectively on a vertical plane and for sideways cuts when trimming branches and angled logs. Make sure the saw you choose is light enough for you to handle comfortably.
The bar length (in inches) indicates the maximum diameter of a log that can be cut safely and effectively. Pick a bar that is two to four inches longer than what you will be cutting. A longer bar is not always better. You won't be able to use the length efficiently if you don't need it.
Consider what you are doing. For smaller jobs like pruning, smaller, lighter-duty saws (approx. 11 to 13 inches) are ideal. Since they're lightweight and maneuverable, they're inherently safer than larger options. The medium-duty saws (14-16 inches) can handle a bit more and are versatile enough for many residential tasks. Pro-style saws (18 to 22 inches) are adequate for smaller tasks, but are better suited to felling and processing large logs.
Gas chainsaws need to be routinely maintained, and they should be adjusted periodically to maintain the chain's original position. Consider features that make these processes easier, such as tool-free chain adjustment knobs and an automatic chain oiler.
There are a variety of gas-powered chainsaws available for less than $200 to more than $3,500. Find a saw that fits your budget.
Gas-powered chainsaws are dangerous tools that can easily injure or kill the user in a fraction of a second. According to the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 36,000 people get chainsaw injuries every year. So be sure to get the proper safety training before using a gasoline chainsaw.
It's strongly recommended by Farmertec.com, leading Gasoline Chain Saw Manufacturer in China, that having a professional or well-experienced user to guide you how to safely start and operate a gas-powered chainsaw. And make sure you remember to use one with personal protective equipment, including trousers, face, hearing and eye protection.
