Things To Consider Before Purchasing a Chainsaw

Moving to the country made me jealous of the boys and their toys used to clean up large trees. After reviewing a few power tools in my home garden over the last few years it has come to my attention that having the right tool for the job is essential.  In this post I will share things to consider before purchasing a chainsaw based on what helped me make my choice.

I think my friend Geri Laufer who shared “armed and ready! this Gal packs heat”.  I LOVE IT… this tool ROCKS!  Purchasing from a reputable online store tops my list of things to consider before purchasing a chainsaw.

Three Things To Consider Before Purchasing A Chainsaw

Things Considered Before Purchasing a Chainsaw

My first cut with the Husqvarna was like slicing butter!

Since 2003 I have been clearing over grown trees, maintaining wood lines and planting additional trees and shrub. During that time, I have relied on others who could easily complete tasks too large for me. It wasn’t until recently I found confidence to pursue owning my own chainsaw. Before adding a chainsaw to my garden shed these were the things I considered before purchasing.

  1. Chainsaw Specs: The size and weight of the power tool.
  2. Additional expenses: fuel, oil, maintenance, blade sharping.
  3. The job : study and research the tree or shrub and if a power tool such as a chainsaw was needed.
