Guide to Pruning chainsaws

by Nica Johnson Beauty Consultant

Chainsaws for pruning are special chainsaws, small and compact, specially designed for pruning and limbing trees and shrubs. Depending on the type of pruning you want to carry out, you can mount the most suitable bar. In addition to the traditional bar, there is, in fact, a type of bar called Carving, which has a triangular shape and is useful for particular cutting operations. Here's a guide by Toolsngoods, Many machines are predisposed for the attachment of a carabiner or a shoulder strap to carry the chainsaw on the tree, especially in tree climbing operations. Displacements may vary but are usually around 30cc. The handle with the throttle control located on the top of the saw allows for one-handed use and in any case a more comfortable grip during pruning. In addition, this handle allows you to reach even more difficult points.

Chainsaw for pruning how to use it safely

First, you start the engine by locking the throttle and holding the saw firmly with your left hand, then pulling the engine start rope with your right hand. An important thing when moving the saw over the shaft is to always engage the chain lock using the chain lock lever located near the bar, this will prevent the chain from moving and may be dangerous if the saw slips away. On the front handle, which is in the shape of a doughnut, there is also a switch to turn off the engine. In this position, it can be reached more easily with your thumbs to stop the saw if you are in a dangerous situation and, at the moment, can reach the chain lock lever. The upper handle allows the machine to be used with only one hand. However, it is always good to grip it with both hands when possible, this way you can work with more safety.

How to choose a chainsaw for pruning

When choosing a chainsaw for pruning you have to consider several aspects to make sure you buy the right machine. The first thing to evaluate is how to use it: for those who prune a few trees in their home garden, a hobby model may be sufficient, while for a gardener or a professional worker a professional model is more convenient. In any case, it is always better to find your way around a machine from a well-known manufacturer on the market, to make sure you have a guarantee and the right assistance in case of need. If you buy a machine with an unknown brand you may run into all kinds of problems and risk not finding assistance. Many street vendors buy Chinese made chainsaws, often of poor quality, then apply labels from well-known manufacturers with a specific model to them and then sell them and convince consumers to buy them, especially pruning saws. In case of doubt, it is advisable to mark the brand and model on the label and consult the manufacturer's catalog by comparing the image of the machine with the chainsaw in question.

Prices for pruning saws

A good hobby pruning saw has a minimum price of 200 euros, up to a maximum of 300 euros or a little more. Professional models, especially the machines considered top of the range, have prices ranging from 400 up to over 1000 euros. According to the quality/price ratio, the cost of the machine varies according to the displacement, the power and the materials with which it is built. The online sales sites usually have lower prices than a physical dealer, often you can find good offers that allow the purchase of the machine and in addition, there may be the possibility of having some spare parts or accessories useful for the chainsaw at a good price and sometimes you can find chainsaws of guaranteed quality. Among the free accessories, you can find oil for mixture or a spare bar or chain.
