Chainsaws represent the ultimate in portable cutting power. They can help you cut down a large tree in minutes and cut logs into firewood in seconds.
Electric chainsaws don't require gas to run, so you don't have to bother with refills. You do need a power source and an extension cord to use them, however. Cordless chainsaws run on battery power, and have the benefit of the same easy starts as their corded counterparts with the portability of gas-powered models. If you have trees on your property, a good saw is as vital to your landscaping maintenance as a lawnmower.
If you're working in the woods, take along an extra chain and a file. You want to be able to quickly get back to work if your chain snaps or goes dull, instead of heading back into town. If you're running a cordless chainsaw, remember to charge your battery fully, and bring along a spare to swap out when your charge runs low. Extra air filters and spark plugs ensure smoother operation in case the filter gets clogged or you flood the engine. These machines feature high-performance motors, so make sure that you're mixing premium two-stroke oils for the best results, and be sure to use a reliable chain oil.
Wear appropriate safety equipment, like gloves, visors and chaps to protect your body, and ensure you have been trained to use a chainsaw. If you have to take a limb off a tree and it's higher than you can reach on your feet, use a chain polesaw instead of taking your chainsaw up a ladder. Alternatively, use a pruning saw to manually cut a small branch.
