Cutting firewood, sharpening, pruning trees in the garden … the uses of a chainsaw are multiple for a particular.
What power is needed? What energy? Which comfort and safety equipment could facilitate my use?
It is essential to keep the right criteria in mind before buying your best chainsaw: here is our guide to make the right choice!
Where will you be using your chainsaw?
In the garden, you will probably have an electrical outlet nearby, an electric chainsaw may be the right choice. electric chainsaws are lightweight, efficient, non-polluting and silent.
In the forest or in a large garden, a chainsaw will offer you the freedom of movement and power you will need.
For large gardens, battery saws are ideal. They offer the advantages of electric chainsaws (lightweight, non-polluting, silent and just as powerful) with wireless mobility in addition! You can reuse your battery with other battery machines.
The level of performance (power, displacement …) depends on the tasks you want to achieve with your chainsaw. If in doubt, consult a dealer.
The type of guide: the length does not do everything!
Attention, a long guide is impressive but is not always the ideal choice for your work.
The length of your chainsaw guide should therefore correspond to:
To the application / use area.
-to the power of the engine.
A guide of a length of 30cm will suffice for most applications in the garden: cutting firewood, cutting the branches of a tree, doing small jobs, wood carving …
The type of chain: the key to performance and quality of cutting
For added safety and comfort, users should check that their chain has a low vibration level and a low tendency to bounce.
For regular users, chains with tungsten carbide pellets (Duro chains) are recommended. The sharpening life is 4 times longer than a conventional chain.
For users looking for an even more precise cut, Picco chains with square gouge are ideal.
