Electric Chainsaws FAQ's
What to look for when buying an electric chainsaw?
When purchasing an electric chainsaw, consider the following factors:
1. Power source: Decide between corded or cordless models based on your need for mobility.
2. Bar length: Choose an appropriate bar length based on your cutting tasks and the size of materials you will be working with.
3. Motor power: Consider the motor power rating to ensure sufficient cutting performance for your intended applications.
4. Safety features: Look for features like chain brakes, kickback protection, and safety switches to prioritise user safety.
5. Ease of use: Evaluate factors such as weight, ergonomics, and vibration levels for comfortable and efficient operation.
6. Maintenance requirements: Check for features that make chain tensioning, lubrication, and maintenance tasks convenient.
By considering these factors, you can select an electric chainsaw that meets your cutting needs and provides a satisfactory user experience.
How long will an electric chainsaw last?
The lifespan of an electric chainsaw can vary depending on factors such as usage, maintenance, and the quality of the chainsaw. On average, a well-maintained electric chainsaw can last between 5 to 10 years. However, this can vary significantly based on the specific model, frequency of use, and the intensity of cutting tasks. Regular maintenance, including chain sharpening, lubrication, and proper storage, can help prolong its lifespan. It's also important to follow the manufacturer's guidelines and use the chainsaw according to its intended purpose for optimal performance and longevity.
Do electric chainsaws have kickback?
Yes, electric chainsaws can experience kickback, although it is generally less severe compared to petrol-powered chainsaws. Kickback occurs when the chainsaw's bar nose makes contact with an object or when the chain gets pinched, causing the bar to jerk upward. To minimise the risk of kickback, electric chainsaws are equipped with safety features such as chain brakes, low kickback chains, and chain catchers. It's important to follow safe operating practices, wear appropriate safety gear, and maintain a firm grip on the chainsaw to reduce the likelihood of kickback incidents.
Do electric chainsaws need a chain brake?
Yes, electric chainsaws typically come equipped with a chain brake. The chain brake is a safety feature designed to quickly stop the chain's rotation in the event of kickback or other emergencies. It helps prevent accidents and injuries by reducing the risk of the chain continuing to rotate uncontrollably. The chain brake can be manually activated or triggered automatically by certain safety mechanisms. It is an essential component of electric chainsaws and plays a crucial role in ensuring user safety during operation.
