Basic Electric Chainsaw Suggestions


Looking to get a simple, low end chainsaw. Mainly need it to just trim back some thin branches and cut up some fallen limbs for use in a fire pit. Any suggestions on brands or models? Possibly considering the HomeLite brand from Home Depot.

When it comes to electric saws most brands are the same or made in the same factory. Need to make sure you have enough power to do the job. Example fur and oak are harder than aspen and pine and pine is wetter than aspen. Different wood can burn up a saw in hurry, if not powerful enough.

I have both a Homelite and a Poulon.
The Homelite is a far better saw.
We used them in 100 plus year old house inside to cut old beams and floor joist. They had more then enough power.

Thanks for the info. Price is definitely right and it sounds like it will do fine for the simple tasks I want it to perform.
