Best Chainsaw for 2022

Chainsaws are useful and precise tools. Their function is based on pruning, cutting or chopping wood from trees. These machines are made up of a powerful motor that moves the toothed chain located on the bar or sword.

Nowadays there is a huge number of models of chainsaws on the market, classified according to the type of motor they have. That is why the choice between one and the other will depend to a great extent on the characteristics of the wood to be worked with, the amount of use and, of course, the weight of the machine.

Types of chainsaws

The types of chainsaws are divided into two groups: according to the nature of the engine and the type of cut.

Electric, battery and petrol chainsaws are among those classified according to engine.

Electric motor chainsaws

This class of engines has a power that ranges between 1,600 and 2,200 watts. In terms of maintenance, it’s very important to have the oil tank full for greasing the chain and clean it well after every use. It must also be sharpened from time to time in order to keep in good conditions its cutting capacity.

Due to the fact their sword usually measures between 35 and 40 centimetres, they are ideal to cut soft wood, such as arizonica or traditional garden hedges, but not for industrial tasks.

The biggest advantage of electric chainsaws is their ease use and their many sales on online stores, such as Amazon and Ebay, where we can find hundreds of cheap options. They are also easier to repair.

The bad part of this type of tool is that due to the type of motor, it is necessary to connect them to a power plug. This takes away the autonomy when we need to work with it. Despite of this, the problem can be solved with an extension cord that can withstand the watts determined by the chainsaw.

Petrol chainsaws

Gasoline chainsaw models have an engine of approximately 40 or 50 cm3 that runs on two strokes. This gives it a much more powerful cutting power than electric or battery chainsaws.

Its disadvantage lies in the difficult maintenance, which is superior to other types. Therefore, its repair is more expensive.

Unlike other types of chainsaws, it requires constant cleaning of spark plugs and lubrication of each of its motorized parts to prevent the engine from deteriorating rapidly. In addition, it needs a mix of gasoline and oil to start it up.

The strength of these tools lies in their uninterrupted work with massive results. It’s just as suitable for domestic work as it is for professional tasks.

Other advantages are that they have proper autonomy of use and are suitable for industrial tasks.

Lithium battery chainsaws

All chainsaws with a built-in lithium battery have a power output ranging from 18 to 36 volts. They require the same maintenance care as electric chainsaws.

One of the reasons to choose them is that they are quite simple to operate, which makes them a relatively safe tool to use, considering that a cutting instrument always represents a risk.

These chainsaws are suitable for cutting soft woods (pines, poplars, cedars, etc.) with a maximum diameter of 15 centimetres. They are also ideal for high pruning, except that the machine does not weigh more than 3 kilos and can be handled with just one hand.

Amazon and Ebay buyers love lithium chainsaws because they are easy to handle and allow the user to have autonomy while the battery is charged, since they do not need to be connected to an power plug. However, the issue of this battery is its relatively short life, which is why we advise you to have a spare battery.
