Your Guide To Buying a Chainsaw

By Benjamin Schleider

    If you do a lot of work outside the house that involves working with trees—either for a job or for fun—or if you live in a heavily-wooded area, there may come a point when you need to cut one down or otherwise clear it away. Sometimes it’s because of a planned landscaping project, while other times it’s a sudden necessity (for instance, if a tree is downed by a storm). When that happens, you’ll need something to cut through the tree, which means that unless you’re interested in going the very old-fashioned route and using an axe or saw, you’ll want to use a powered chainsaw. Here are some things to look for when deciding which chainsaw is right for your needs.

    On a basic level, chainsaws all work on the same principle: the motor moves the chain, which moves the teeth, which cut through the material that needs to be cut. The main difference between chainsaw models coms down to the saw’s power source:

    Gas-powered: Gas-powered chainsaws have been around for the longest time. They rely on an internal combustion engine (like most cars and lawn mowers) and typically use a pull-string to start.

    Electric-powered: In recent years, electric models have appeared on the market. They replace the internal combustion engine with one that runs on rechargeable batteries, and the pull-string with an on-off switch.

    Here are some of the qualities reviewers point to when discussing their satisfaction with their chainsaw purposes:

    • Ease of starting: This is an especially important quality when it comes to gas-powered chainsaws. Since most of them rely on a pull-string starter, it’s important to find one that actually starts. The best models feature pull-strings that give the right amount of resistance while still starting without requiring too much effort.
    • Battery life: For chainsaws that use batteries, the amount of time that they can hold a charge is an important factor. It can take five hours or more to fully recharge the battery, so it makes sense that you don’t want a model that needs to be recharged after a short work session. Better brands allow users to get a good deal of cutting done before they need to stop and recharge.
    • Adjustability: It’s important to be able to adjust the amount of slack in the chain itself. With older models, this would require breaking out a number of tools and spending a lot of time on the project. The best of the newer models have easy-to-use and intuitive controls that allow users to adjust the chains quickly and efficiently.
    • Controllability: Even if you’re a landscaping professional, you don’t want to have to fight your tools. If you’re an amateur, it’s absolutely essential that you find a model that you’re going to be able to control without too much trouble. Be sure to pay attention to what reviewers say about how easy it is to handle their chainsaws.
    • Size: The length of the saws varies from model to model. Think about the kind of work you’re planning on doing and then decide how big you’ll need the saw to be to do your work. In many cases, the length of the saw is listed in the product name itself, but if it’s not, you’ll be able to find it in the product specifications.
    • Weight: You can also look in the specifications to see how much the saw weighs. You’ll want a model that you can handle safely—remember that it’s not just a matter of lifting the saw; you’re going to have to lift it, move it around, and keep control of it while it cuts through wood.
    • Torque: Torque refers to the amount of power the chainsaw can generate—the greater the torque, the more work it will be able to do.
    • Horsepower: A chainsaw’s horsepower lets you know how fast it runs, which will give you an indication of how quickly it will be able to get the job done.

    Black & Decker: Black & Decker is one of the world leaders in power tool manufacturing. The company started off as a hardware store in Baltimore, Maryland in 1910, but soon shifted to producing tools. Today, Black & Decker manufacturers practically every tool a worker might need.

    Poulan: Poulan is an American manufacturer of chainsaws, lawn mowers, and other powered equipment for outdoor work. The company  was founded in 1944, and has been a leading producer ever since.

    Husqvarna: Husqvarna is a Swedish company that produces outdoor power equipment. They have—by far—the longest history of any of the brands on this list, having been founded as a firearms manufacturer in 1689; in the early 20th century the company changed gears, using its machinery to produce household goods and lawn and garden equipment.

    Remington: Remington is an American manufacturing company that has been making power tools since 1921. It has been making chainsaws since 1954.

    Greenworks: Greenworks is the newest company on this list. Their goal is to produce power tools that are more environmentally-responsible than the ones produced in earlier generations (for instance, using rechargeable batteries rather than gas-powered engines).
