Making Sense Of Chainsaw Reviews

Oct 12, 2007
You can read as many chainsaw reviews as you want but unless you actually take the time to see a machine you're interested in personally then you'll end up fighting a losing battle.

Why? Well, chainsaws can be a personal thing with personal preferences coming into play. It's like anything in life; not everyone has the same tastes and the same applies to power tools.

Reading chainsaw reviews with an open mind is mandatory. First, you decide the machine you need in relation to the amount of use you're going to give it. If you are simply looking for a chainsaw for spasmodic use around the yard then you'll concentrate on light machines such as electric models.

Avoid getting into a tug of war in your mind about what you need as opposed to what you want. They are two very different things. If all you require is a saw to perform a little trimming work every now and again it would be pointless buying a machine suited to felling forest trees.

There are some excellent electric chainsaw models available for home owners and this is a good area to begin your search.

If you require a saw to perform a little extra grunt work then look at the gas-powered range. Which one do you buy? Well, that's something you need to decide. As a homeowner, selecting a saw on the lighter side to handle but still powerful enough to complete your desired job is a good start.

Selecting a saw with an excellent center of gravity and good design goes without saying. Strong safety features which cut down the risk of fatigue and discomfort are other areas to consider. This is why scanning through an endless array of chainsaw reviews is almost a waste of time unless you actually have a machine in your hands and can get a good feel for it.

The problem with trying to make sense of chainsaw reviews is that many operators are loyal to a particular brand. One may prefer a Stihl model in a particular size range while someone else "will swear black and blue" that the Husqvarna model is a better option.

Price is another consideration to make and in fact, could very well anchor your final decision. Spending hundreds of dollars on a chainsaw which is used rarely makes no sense. In the end, combining some of the points mentioned earlier, the expected usage agenda and finally price and you could finally arrive at your desired choice.
