Best Gas Chainsaws For 2019 [Our Reviews and Comparisons]
There are chainsaws, and then there are chainsaws. Not every model is good for every chainsaw-related purpose. This review will be focused on light- to medium-grade chainsaws for homeowners and for farm and ranch applications. Professional chainsaws recommended for logging will not be discussed here, deserving of a focused article all on their own.
The models featured in this review derive from two manufacturers: Husqvarna and Makita. There are many strong brands out there such as Remington, Poulan, Echo, Black & Decker, Oregon, and others.
Those brands not listed here should not be taken as a rejection of those products. We just have to draw the line somewhere when choosing a few for backyard use and a few for farm work. Here, we present our picks for 2019 in the consumer and farm chainsaw market.
(Word of advice: Fuel problems cause starting and running headaches. Do it right. Don’t pour in about that much of this with a little bit of the other stuff and say “go”. Mix your fuels in a separate container, at the proper ratios, then add to the tank. Take the time for this little step and your whole experience will be much, much better).
