Large electric chainsaw

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'd like a large electric chainsaw for ringing up timber for firewood, either run from the mains or a generator. I have big powerful petrol ones and my yard is fairly remote but I'd like to have a quieter saw just to be courteous to the rest of the village especially when sawing for several hours. Does such a tool exist, roughly ms440 size would be ideal. Thanks

Quite a few of the lads are moving to cordless saws so maybe worth looking at ??

Nothing in the range of a 440 though.

I'm looking for a large saw to ring up timber for a few hours a day sometimes so I don't think cordless is upto the job

Didn't realise they did hand held hydraulic saws I just thought they were on machines, wood processors and forestry head on diggers etc

I looked into this before think the largest one around is 2.2kw so about 40cc eqivalent. Only bigger one I found was  youtube video of some crazy russian one or as part of a firewood processer

also have a look at likes of reciprocating saws the better ones have a longer throw can use with plus 300mm blades.

We get asked simple questions such as how to use a reciprocating saw...by how do you use it correctly to cut...

Quite common in America I believe, rigged in to the bucket truck hydraulics
