My old electric chainsaw has finally given up, beyond repair.
It was very heavy to use so no great loss.
Which would be lighter, an electric or petrol replacement ? Just need a smallish one …14/16 ins will do. Not used a lot but it makes life much easier.

Choosing between an electric chainsaw and a petrol chainsaw does not need to be a complicated process. Individuals in the market for a chainsaw need only weigh certain factors, such as the tasks involved, storage needs and demands, and one’s own skills with a chainsaw. By carefully weighing these options, a consumer can quickly ascertain whether an electric or petrol chainsaw is the right answer for the household duties at hand.
