How To Choose The Best Chainsaw For Tree Killing

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

How do you choose the best chainsaw to get the job done? That is a question that is often asked of me. Here is a couple of things that you should keep in mind when it comes to choosing your chainsaw.

Lets start by asking yourself. Are you are going to be using your chainsaw for felling large diameter trees? lets say around the 20" to 24". If this is the case you are going to need a pretty powerful chainsaw, something that has at least 70 to 80cc's of raw power. I would also recommend that the saw you are going to buy or use has a bar fitted no less than the trunk diameter of the tree that you are going to fell.

What if you are an occasional user, someone who owns a farm or has some land that needs clearing of trees. A chainsaw to consider would be something like the Husqvarna 570. This particular model was built for professional use but it has become very popular among land owners and farm owners a like. If you are not a fan of Husky chain saws, there is also the Stihl MS 360. Another professional chainsaw that was built for the same reason as the Husky 570.

What about home use? What sort of chainsaw would you consider to be a good saw for use around the home? This is going to be a chainsaw for cutting small diameter trees or limbing branches for firewood, it is going to quite light and easy to handle. It will most likely be a gas powered chainsaw. You would have to consider Stihl's MS 170 or the MS 171. Once again, these chain saws were developed for use around the home. If you care to read reviews on any of these chainsaws you will find that any one of them will get your job done.

Although the chainsaws that I have covered so far, are all gas powered, you can also consider buying an electric chainsaw. These types of chainsaws can come in very handy as well. If you will not be using your chainsaw very often, this could definitely be the type of chainsaw you are looking. Even though they do not have the same raw power as any of the gas powered models mentioned above, they are still capable of limbing up small diameter trees for firewood. They are also among the favourites when it comes to the Ladies using a chainsaw.

Would you like to see a professional guide to buying the right chainsaw, or you just need help in choosing the best chainsaw for your job?
