Which Is Best? Electric or Petrol Chainsaws?

by:Jiali     2020-04-11
The most appropriate chainsaw for you will depend upon the kind of work you will be using it for. Are you going to be felling trees? Will you be using it to cut down and reduce the size of branches in your back garden etc? Is the chain saw mainly for domestic use that will be used only now and again or is it for commercial use and therefore constantly being used? Are you going to be using it to create wood carvings? A question of power Both the electric and Petrol (gas in the USA) models have their own advantages and disadvantages, but generally speaking petrol is more powerful than the electric chainsaw. Loggers who need to clear large areas of land prefer using the petrol version as it offers faster and more powerful cutting. This in the same way is a good investment commercially. Less time spent on any one job or task will obviously mean a saving in money terms as well. Do you need portability? The biggest advantage of the petrol chainsaw is its portability. Because you do not have to worry about finding a plug point to start your chainsaw, you can use it just about anywhere. Staff especially will not by restricted by how far they travel if they are working on an especially large project. The fact that there is no cord attached to a petrol chainsaw also makes the appliance safer. With all gardening equipment such as lawn mowers and trimmers we all have to be conscious of that trailing wire. It could not only be a danger for the user but a trip hazard for those around. The chainsaw is classed as the most potentially dangerous piece of gardening equipment available, so any measures that can be put in place to make it safer for the operator are welcomed. The lead again can create restrictions with how the machine itself is maneuvered during the cutting procedure. This is most clearly seen when you have to work at heights. Professional tree surgeons and tree fellers more often than not have to climb trees or use ladders in their work. A trailing cord would not only be annoying, the problems around safety would make it unmanageable and therefore redundant. Chainsaws in a domestic environment Petrol chainsaws however do come in various sizes and are regularly used in the domestic situation. A 15-inch guide bar (the bar is measured form the nose or tip of the blade to where it ends in the casing) is appropriate for simple trimming and shaping and for occasional light weight working in a domestic environment. However because electric chainsaws have less power they are more likely to suffer from kickback. This makes them a little safer and more appropriate for the amateur and domestic user. Another advantage of our electric model is you do not have to worry about running out of fuel or oil. This can be problematic for the petrol chainsaw owner who has not prepared for this eventuality as he/she will have to wait for the machine to cool down before replacing the fuel. Ease of Action An electric chainsaw is a lot easier and safer to start than its petrol cousin. All you have to do is flick a switch or push a button. The petrol model by comparison is triggered into action by the starting rope. This can be frustrating, annoying and, worst still, time-wasting if it does not flare into action first time. Perhaps more importantly it is this action of starting a chainsaw improperly or in a slovenly manner which reports suggest cause the most injuries. Because the electric chainsaw is less powerful by default it is also a great deal quieter. If you live in a close neighbourhood this can be a godsend for Sunday mornings. It also will not need as much maintenance as the petrol model. This is due to that fact that you are not constantly checking petrol levels and fuel levels and the spark plug. And because on the whole electric chainsaws are less powerful and therefore being constantly confronted by a lot of vibration, there isn't the need to continuously check that the casing and nuts and bolts are still tight and secure. Which chainsaw is easiest to store? The electric chainsaw is much easier to store. In fact all you have to do is put it away. However the petrol model has to be emptied of all its petrol otherwise the petrol will deteriorate and leave deposits in the carburetor and fuel lines. A compromise is to add a fuel preservative to the fuel if you are going to store it for a long period. You must never store it away if it is still hot and when you do it should be stored upright in a well-ventilated environment. When it comes down to being eco-friendly the electric model wins simply because it is not powered by petrol, so really think hard about the type of work you will be needing your chainsaw for before buying it - if its going to be small domestic jobs - buy small and electric. If you have light work but have to travel a distance, consider the battery operated chainsaw. The great advantage of these models is they are cordless. They are also light and as powerful as the electric chainsaws. However the disadvantage with cordless chainsaws is the battery life is quite short. Also, once they need recharging this could at least take an hour to do. Chainsaws for wood carving Wood carving using a chainsaw is becoming evermore popular. If you are going to be buying a model for this kind of task, a lead will not be too much of a problem as you will be in one place rather than wondering over a large area however it may interfere with flexibility of movement. This artistry calls for detailed work so a light easy to manoeuvre petrol chain saw is probably more preferable.
