Which is lighter an electric or petrol chainsaw ?

Postby Brian » Fri Sep 30, 2016 5:44 pm

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.

As smaller and less powerful units, electric chainsaws are much easier and less intimidating for the average consumer to operate. An electric chainsaw blade typically is no longer than 38 cm, making it a much less threatening power tool than many petrol varieties
