What is the difference between a gas chainsaw and an electric chainsaw?
Electric chainsaws are usually the least expensive compared to the different types of chainsaws available. Most first-time users and homeowners opt for an electric chainsaw because of its ease of use and power output. Starting an electric chainsaw usually can be done with the flick of its switch, while gas chainsaws typically require pulling a cord on the tool, which can be temperamental. Electric chainsaws need to be plugged into a power source while in use. Gas chainsaws are chainsaws powered by fuel. This type of chainsaw is a popular choice for professionals and those requiring more power for large projects. It is essential to consider that a gas chainsaw, although more powerful, comes with more maintenance requirements like time to cool after a job, fuel drainage and proper storage. Within Electric Chainsaws, we carry products with accessories that include Scabbard, Chain and Scrench/Combination Wrench with prices ranging from $50 to $700.
