How to choose your cordless chainsaw?

The manufacturers understood that the trend was towards autonomy and that the gardener no longer wanted to have to drag a wire behind him. As a result the ranges of cordless chainsaw have widened and it becomes a little more complicated to find the right model at the right price. We established criteria which seems essential to us in the choice of the best cordless chainsaws.

  • The power of the chainsaw

  • The chain rotation speed

  • The length of the chain guide

  • The weight of the chainsaw

  • The type of battery

  • The safety level of the chainsaw

  • The brand and the warranty

The power of the chainsaw

This is the first parameter to take into account when buying your chainsaw. This power is given in Watts. the best models have a power of 45W. However you can check another criterion which is the battery voltage. So a 28V chainsaw will be less powerful than a 36V model.

The chain rotation speed

It is expressed in Meter per second, a speed generally suitable for an average branch cut is 5M / s. It is advisable to check this speed before buying so as not to have a chainsaw which would not be able to cut branches of too large a diameter.

The weight of the chainsaw

It is essential for quality work and longevity to have a chainsaw that is not too heavy. Note that the battery models will have a weight varying between 3 and 4 kilos. for example, a thermal chainsaw weighs between 6 and 7 kilos. The weight gain is important and allows you to work the taller branches more easily.

The type of battery

This is the nerve center of the cordless chainsaw, the battery must be of the lithium-ion type for a better lifespan and a faster charge. Note that some brands such as Black and Decker use the same batteries on the whole series of their cordless tools. This allows you to recharge a battery while using a tool and to easily interchange.

The safety level of the chainsaw

Two essential elements can be identified for good user protection. The double start button and the left hand protection with the shield. If these two elements are not present on the model avoid the. The use of cutting tools is extremely dangerous, so remember to check that these two protection criteria are present. Note also that on brushless motors, the chain stops instantly and has no inertia. this is very reassuring if you accidentally let go of your chainsaw.

The brand and the warranty

choosing a well-known brand means first of all ensuring a reliable product that meets the standards in force. Finally you have battery compatibility if you have other cordless tools of the brand. Bosh, Blac and Decker, Makita offers powerful tools with excellent value for money.

In terms of warranty be careful, because some brands guarantee the chainsaw for two years only if you register on their site. The chainsaw is generally guaranteed for 1 year. Note that if you order it online directly on Amazon you have the money back guarantee which allows you to return the model for free if it does not suit you.

Finally remember to consult the opinions of gardeners they bring a real contribution during the purchase by giving you the advantages and disadvantages of the cordless chainsaw.
