Is An Electric Chainsaw a Better Option for You?

A petrol chainsaw can be a challenge to use! They have a large kickback, they eat fuel like they haven't seen it in weeks, they take an absolute mega effort to start, they're nosier than your grandmas car and you have to contend with the fuel that is left in the shed. Whcih is a safe place right? Not if you have kids like mine. All these disadvantages an electric chainsaw simply does not have.

Kickback with Electric Chainsaws

Electric chainsaws are battery powered and this allows them to run a lot smoother than a petrol chainsaw which uses a 2 stroke or 4 stroke engine. This makes an electric chainsaw a lot easier to use (especially for a first timer) as your hands are more steady and the chainsaw is taking less of a physical tole on your body.

Fuel and Your Electric Chainsaw

An electric chainsaw can be charged through an electrical socket in your home. But this doesn't mean that is it even costs any money. A renewable source of electricity in your home leads to your chainsaw being completely reusable as well. Some would say that the petrol chainsaw with its fossil fuels cant exactly live up to this claim....

An Electric Chainsaw Does Not Annoy Your Neighours

An electric chainsaw is very quiet (depending on what exactly you are cutting of course) and is a lot less likely to disturb the neighbours than the noisy petrol chainsaw which is jsut about guaranteed to wake up your entire neighbourhood (depending on the time of day rather).

Hmmm, starting to definetely make petrol chainsaws look like not the right tool for the job. The trusth is there are benefits to owning an electric chainsaw and benefits to owning a petrol chainsaw. Just best to know which one you should go with.
