Reviews of Chain Saws for Sales

by Tested_to_Destruction

When it comes to woodcutting, nothing beats the pwoer that comes with chainsaws. The five best discount chainsaws, compared and reviewed.

If you're looking for chainsaws for sale, make sure you get the best bang for your buck. In my opinion - there's plenty to choose from and the best ones are generally the best selling models. The more endorsements that hand and power tools receive from happy customers, the better the tool tends to be.

Besides being plenty to choose from, there's also a wide variety of prices. You can go in at the entry level, and purchase something that matches your budget or, if you've a few bucks lying around, choose something higher up the price scale . though you're likely going to end with some serious bad boy on your hand.

The five best selling discount chainsaws are featured below - all great value for money, top quality and all highly rated.

Poulan Pro 400E 18-Inch 4 Horsepower Electric Chain Saw

This is the best selling of all the chainsaws - highly rated, hugely popular and one heck of a workhorse. It comes fully assembled, no messing around out of the box, just put it straight to work. There's a four horse-power engine that kicks out an awesome punch, plus you get to adjust and alter the angle due to the power differential.

It's packed with features, such as a protective hand plate, an inertia blade brake and a double layer of insulation for added safety against electric shocks. It's a superior piece of engineering for the price and it will readily make short work of trees, firewood cutting, brush and more. It's lightweight yet powerful, rugged yet portable - and well under 100 bucks. The best there is - buy it.

Black & Decker CCS818 18-Volt Cordless Electric Chain Saw

This is the best selling of the cordless chainsaws and comes from the well known Black and Decker brand. It can and will deal equally well with a variety of different woods, as well as a variety of sizes, lengths and depths. It's powered by an 18v battery and will work a good length of time on a single charge.

There's a hex wrench included, an easy-oil feature to keep the chain lubricated and an indicator that relates to how much oil is available. The handle is the wrap-around style and there's a good quality hand guard to help minimize the risk of injury. It feels pretty lightweight for a chainsaw, and doesn't run off with your hand when you apply it to a wooden surface. A good, solidly made power tool. Great for back yard maintenance and another winner under the 100 dollar mark.

Poulan 1420 14-Inch 2 HP Electric Chain Saw

This is the best of the cheap chainsaws for sale and another offering from Poulan. The bar and chain is 14" in length, so it's one for light to middleweight maintenance - and it's powered by a two horse-power 10.5 amp motor. It's extremely lightweight at less than 7lbs and it feels balanced in-hand and naturally lacks the vibration of the bigger models.

The features include a protective hand guard, a looped, comfortable handle and an kick-back guide bar for added safety. Great for cutting and shaping hedges, trimming back brushwood and trees - a good quality, powerful yet lightweight little workhorse. Perfect for the homeowner that has a medium sized yard to maintain and at less than 60 bucks, an awesome bargain

McCulloch MCC3516F 16-Inch 3.5 HP Electric Chain Saw

This is a good quality 16" chainsaw and yet another that comes in at well below 100 dollars. Manufactured by McCulloch, it's a solidly built, rugged feeling backyard power tool that feels balanced, powerful and user-friendly to work with. It makes short work of some of the larger stuff you can find around the yard and the 3.5 horse-power engine is more than adequate to drive it along.

Features include a kickback chain and chain brake, an oil level indicator window - and the cord feeds through the back of the looped handle for added safety. Being an electric chainsaw, it's lighter and more manageable that a gas powered model, plus it lacks the need to fill and prime it - with the vibrations being a lot less noticeable when in use. A powerful, good sized tool, well into the discount price range and worth every cent.
