Best Gas-Powered Chainsaw 2017

Gas chainsaws are powered by a mixture of oil and gasoline, and they’re the type of saw you want if you are looking for do big cutting jobs or require a lot of power. (Gasoline saws are the kind professional foresters use in their work.)

Here’s a list of applications for gasoline chainsaws and when you would choose them over electric:

  • Cutting firewood
  • Sawing down trees
  • Storm clean up
  • Cutting up medium-sized trees

Benefits:

  • The benefits to using a gasoline chainsaw relate to its power.
  • If you need to do a big cutting job, an electric simply won’t cut it.
  • You’re going to get much more horsepower and cutting torque with a gasoline chainsaw than an electric could ever hope to deliver.
  • Gasoline chainsaws are much more mobile, too.
  • You don’t need a plug-in power source for a gas saw. This means you can work freely far away from a generator or outlet and not worry about a cumbersome extension cord.

Downsides

  • There are some downsides to a gasoline-powered chainsaw. First, gasoline saws tend to be a little bigger than electric saws. They’re also often heavier, making them a little more cumbersome to use. This makes them less-than-ideal for smaller jobs.
  • Gasoline saws are also sometimes more difficult to get started, making them awkward for jobs that require turning the saw on and off frequently.
  • Finally, gasoline saws require a lot more maintenance than electric saws. Much like your car or gasoline-powered lawn mower, you need to regularly perform maintenance to keep the machine working smoothly and properly when you need it.
