Who Makes the Best Chainsaw?
When buying a chainsaw there are several things that one should consider. The most important thing to consider is how will the saw be used? If you are planning on using the saw for general around the home use is one thing, but if you plan on making a living with your new chainsaw is quite another.
There are hundreds of different models of chainsaws made by as many different companies that are for sale in stores all over the world. There are however two brand name chainsaws the tower heads above the rest. Those two are Stihl and Husqvarna each rating about the same in quality and longevity. They are both quite expensive in comparison to some other chainsaws, but if you’re shopping for quality you can’t go wrong with either of the two chainsaws mentioned above.
Determining who makes the best chainsaw is to say the least a difficult task for obvious reasons. There are as many different uses for a chainsaw as there are chainsaws. If you are buying a chainsaw to work with every day or on a very regular basis then the Stihl or the Husqvarna are definitely recommended. If you are buying a chainsaw for general occasional lite to moderately heavy use the McCullogh, and Poulan chain saws are good for the job.
In a recent pole to see which chainsaw is the best Husqvarna received 41 percent of the votes out of around 3,100, Stihl -came in second with 40 percent of the votes, after that Jonsered received 7 percent, Echo 4 percent and all others a whopping 8 percent. That is not to say that the all others aren’t perfectly good chainsaws. You should choose your chainsaw according to your needs.
With any chainsaw that you purchase one of the most important things is maintenance and care. If you don’t take proper care of your chainsaw you shouldn’t expect it to last for long. What if you never put oil in you lawn mower? It would blow up and it would be you own fault. It works the same way with chainsaws. You take care of them and they will take care of you.
How much your chainsaw weighs and the size of the motor are two more very important things to keep in mind when shopping for a chainsaw. The heavier your chainsaw is the more difficult it will be to handle, so keep it as light weight as possible. Both the Stihl and the Husqvarna chainsaws come in many different weights and sizes.
Safety is another thing to keep in mind when looking to buy a chainsaw. A chainsaw can be very dangerous or even fatal if they are not operated properly. The Stihl chainsaw comes with a safety feature called a, “quick stop” chain brake which will cause the chain to stop turning if kickback occurs. Stihl also has low kickback saw chains and reduced kickback bars.
Stihl isn’t the only chainsaw company that offers special safety features on their chainsaws, but all things considered Stihl chainsaws come out on top of the chainsaw pile as number one. Just keep in mind that the number one chainsaw for you is the one that you choose no matter what name brand you choose.
