Chainsaws

Are you Looking For The Best Chainsaw? Here Is All You Need To Know

A chain saw is one of the most useful cutting tools; it can be used for quick removal of dead trees, or clear fallen trees after a storm within a very short time. If you are planning to do some sawing work and you are looking for the best chainsaws for sale, here is how to find the right chainsaw.

Finding The Best Chainsaw For Sale For Your Cutting Needs

For an industry that has continued to see numerous chainsaws being developed, singling out the best from the crowded market is no longer an easy task, and to get you started, here is how to find the best model that will suit your sawing needs.

Type of work you plan to do

First, before you buy a chainsaw, take the kind of work you plan to do into great consideration. The type and size of the wood you need to cut and your experience using this tool are some of the biggest factors that will come into play during your selection process. For example, if you are planning to cut a lot of heavy logs, a petrol chainsaw is an excellent choice. It will cut through those big logs faster without any problem.

Gas or electric chainsaw?

When it comes to the type of chain saw to buy that will largely depend on what you need, the kind of sawing you will do and where you will be doing the work. Electric and gas models each offers a unique set of benefits regardless of what you buy. However, you will want to make sure it comesfully loaded with all the safety features and you know how to use it.

a) Gas-powered chain saws

These types of chainsaws tend to cut more quickly and smoothly than electric saws. However, they are heavier and tend to produce a lot of noise. Plus, starting the engine requires several hard yanks on a starter cord.

b) Electric chain saws

They cost less than gas-powered saws and normally come with a plug-in powered cord. Although, they weigh less and can start with some much ease, electric chain saws come with one major problem; you will need to be near an electric outlet all the time reducing the number of areas this type of chainsaw can be used.

Safety considerations

Chainsaws are powerful, handy tools and they can be dangerous if they are not handled properly. When it comes to using a chain saw, kick back is one of the major dangers you will face. It is because of this shoppers are always advised to look for a unit that features a low-kickback chain among other safety devices like a tip guard.

Top Chainsaw Safety features Your Chainsaw Must Come With At All Times

While the power and size of your chainsaw can help you determine the best chainsaw Sydney for your needs, there are also a number of safety features that can improve safety, comfort and efficiency as you cut through those heavy logs. When looking for a new chainsaws for sale, make sure your chainsaw comes fully equipped with all these features.

Anti-vibration feature; this feature makes your work more comfortable and reduce fatigue. This system also comes in handy if you have a lot of cutting to do.

Chainbrake; this can stop the chain when the saw comes across an abrupt movement or impact. For those highly equipped models, you can manual activate this feature.

Automatic oiler; when it comes to using a chainsaw, proper lubrication is necessary, and this automatic oiler can help lubricate the chain as you cut.

Spring-assist starting; this will significantly bring down the amount of pulling force needed to start a gasoline powered chain saw.

Low kickback bars and chains; help prevent the risk of the saw being forced back and up.

Bar-tipguard; this is a steel attachment that covers the nose of the bar. While this can prevent kick back right at its source, it also shorten the usable length of the bar forcing many users to remove it.

Overall, if you know what you want and what to look for in a chainsaw, finding the right model should be an easy process. However, itis important to note that the choice you make can make or even break your sawing work; so before you buy chainsaw, make sure it is the smartest choice.

How Do Chainsaws Work?

If you are a keen gardener and pride yourself on maintaining the appearance of your property, you might find a chainsaw to be a good investment. The chainsaw is a handy gardening tool to have, as they are used for strenuous work such as felling and pruning trees, jobs that are far too difficult for the average hand saw. Not many people have experience in wielding a chainsaw, but here are a few tips on how to work a chainsaw.

The chainsaw

To understand how chainsaws work, you have to understand the way the tool is made. The chainsaw is a mechanical saw that works when it's set of teeth run along a tree/log. Its teeth are attached to a chain that rotates in connection to the guide bar. It has to have sharp teeth and be balanced so that there is no risk of slipping. Its mechanics are what make it dangerous to use, so you ought to be very careful when working with it.

The dynamics

  1. The presence of an engine is the first clue to how chainsaws work. The engine definitely needs fuel. Gasoline (chemical energy) is transformed into mechanical energy, which converts your tree into a log, or helps you achieve whichever work you are doing. It holds half a liter of gas. This keeps it light.
  2. Air is important in most machinery. The fuel mixes with air in the carburetor
  3. The engine works just like that of a car, only that it is simpler. There is a small cylinder in which the air-fuel mixture is pushed into from the carburetor. In it, this mixture releases its energy when sparked by pushing the piston to action.
  4. The back and forth movement of the piston is then converted into rotary motion by a connected rod.
  5. The centrifugal clutch only gets power from the drive shaft, which then powers that chain, and consequently, the teeth. Make sure that the chain is only running when the chainsaw is at work. Otherwise, it is risky and energy consuming. The clutch is responsible for stopping or increasing the speed of the chain and engine. It works as an automatic switch.
  6. It is within the clutch that you find the drive shaft and the sprocket. The sprocket is connected to the outer rim of this clutch.
  7. The chainsaw, like a vehicle, has gears. The gears help in speed adjustment. The gears are responsible for carrying power on to the sprocket from the clutch. The sprocket holds the chain.
  8. The guide bar splits the wood/timber when the chain spins along it
  9. Chainsaws that handle concrete and other stony surfaces are lubricated with water to ensure they are cleared of the dust. Diamond grit is used along the cutting edges of the chain because this type is cutting tougher substances.

Scientifically, that is how chainsaws work. There are different models of the chainsaw, so if you are using this equipment for the first time, you might need advice on the best one for you. Once you have identified the better option, scout the working area.

Chainsaws are rugged tool, which means less work in felling the tree. It is your duty though to check where the tree is falling. It is safer to check beforehand that there are no electricity lines that might be on the way.
