Types of chainsaws to choose from according to your needs!
Choosing a chainsaw can be a bit of a minefield — especially if you've never thought about it before. So why not ask our experts to guide you through the process? Our selection of electric and cordless chainsaws, along with their key attributes, is an ideal starting point.
If you're looking for something to do a bit of pruning but don't want to buy a petrol-powered chainsaw, we recommend cordless models. Their performance is excellent, their absence of noise makes them suitable for those operating in open spaces such as forests and parks, and simply charging time can be used for other things around the home. Electric chainsaws are also a good choice – they are easy to maintain, lightweight, and offer low power consumption. If you are someone who does a lot of work with cut logs, petrol chainsaws are your best bet.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):
Why were chainsaws invented?
Chainsaws were invented to meet the growing need for more efficient and powerful tools for cutting and harvesting wood. Before the invention of chainsaws, traditional methods such as hand saws or axes were used for felling trees and cutting timber. These methods were time-consuming, labor-intensive, and often required a great deal of physical exertion.
The invention of the chainsaw addressed these challenges by providing a mechanized and faster alternative for cutting wood. Chainsaws greatly increased productivity and reduced the physical strain on workers involved in forestry, logging, and other related industries.
How to sharpen a chainsaw?
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to sharpen a chainsaw:
- Gather the necessary tools: round file, flat file, file guide, depth gauge tool, chainsaw file holder.
- Secure the chainsaw and turn it off.
- Determine the correct file size for your chain.
- File the cutting teeth using the file guide and round file.
- Maintain consistent filing angles and pressure.
- Flip the chainsaw and repeat the filing process on the other side.
- Check and adjust the depth gauges with a depth gauge tool and flat file.
