Combustion Chainsaw (Gasoline)
Ideal for outdoor activities, away from the mains and freedom of movement, as these machines can be supplied anywhere. Gasoline equipment has different power ranges, different cutting sets, lengths and features, models are available from occasional use to reforestation work.
Geared for gardening and occasional use, electric chainsaws only need a power outlet nearby and can handle uninterrupted cable and are light, quiet and emission free.
Battery products are suitable for indoor activities, interior renovations and restorations, as well as for home and garden work or in noise sensitive areas such as residential areas, leisure spaces, universities and hospitals. They are free of gas emissions and have low noise, besides providing great freedom of movement.
Power of Chainsaw
The power of your chainsaw will directly influence the performance of your chainsaw. Higher horsepower chainsaws have more power and more pulling force to turn the chain.
When choosing your chainsaw, keep in mind that horsepower, measured in Cv or Kw is more important than displacement.
