Electric Chain Saws

Chainsaws are such powerful tools that we should thank the inventors for coming up with this machine.

How chainsaws came into our lives remains hotly debated.
Two important contributors to its creation are recognized by the names Joseph Buford Cox and Andreas Stihl.
In 1926, Stihl patented and developed a chainsaw and invented the petrol-powered chainsaw three years later, eventually founding a company that mass-produced them.




The electric chainsaw is perfect for simple jobs around the home, such as pruning plants, cutting logs for use in the fireplace, and cutting small tree branches.
Electric chainsaws are light, portable, and easy to operate, making it an ideal tool for light garden work.
This lightweight, yet powerful, tool is amps-rated and is normally up to only sixteen inches and attached to a 100-foot power cord.
Since you need a power source when using this equipment, it is inconvenient to use it in outside locations where no electricity is present, like in the forest and in deep woods.

An electric saw is a low-maintenance tool that is less noisy than most petrol models.
It is also environmentally friendly since it does not emit toxic fumes to the air; and it is much cheaper that a gas chainsaw.
Its drawback, though, is its inability to cut and buck huge trees since it has less power than petrol models; as such, petrol models are faster in terms of sawing time.
If you're the type who loves to work and putter around the garden, then an electric chainsaw is best for you.
It is simpler and cheaper than gas saws, thereby saving you time and effort in working around your garden.

Chainsaws are extremely versatile since they can finish seemingly endless jobs faster, requiring less time and effort.
Caution should always be employed in using this tool. Its proper use and care can save lives, reduce the cost of repairs, and ensure a smoothly and efficiently running tool for many years.
Lack of proper maintenance can result in a chainsaw stalling halfway through an important job, resulting in a need for professional repair.

Some saws can have their blades replaced by other attachments using the saw's power head as a motor.
The most common of these attachments are the augers and circular saws.

Let me take this opportunity to highlight the fact that chainsaws can cause injuries, sometimes fatal.
The most common accident involving chainsaw is called kickback; it occurs when a chain tooth near the bar tip cuts into wood without going through it. Thus, the chain cannot move and the bar is pushed into an upward motion towards the operator, resulting in serious injuries and even death.
Another dangerous situation occurs when a huge timber falls or shifts when a cut is almost done. The operator may be trapped, even crushed to death, since a tree is heavier than a car.
Operators are also prone to vibration white finger, tinnitus, or industrial deafness. Thus, protective chainsaw clothing, a helmet with a visor, heavy gloves, steel toe cap boots and ear covers are normally worn.
For maximum safety, certification and proper training is needed before one is allowed to professionally operate a chainsaw.
