Chainsaws roar, they’re hard to control, they’re sharp bladed, they’re mean little machines. Make one wrong move and they’re going to cut you alive. Chainsaws are not made for intimidation they are made for construction.
Quick not so fun fact about chainsaws – they were first invented intentionally for medical purposes.
Just like most machines, chainsaws have different parts that work together for it to perfectly operate – the engine, the guide bar, the drive mechanism and the cutting chain. These parts require maintenance which often consisted of lubrication and sharpening.
Quick fun fact about chainsaws, a chainsaw piston goes up and down in the cylinder 20,000 times a minute as manifested in its monstrous severing of a tree trunk in half.
You probably see chainsaws being used by operators in harvesting wood. However, there are types of chainsaws that could cut bricks and stones. There are also chainsaws that are use to cut ice.
Although, chainsaws are primarily used in the commercial industry, they are also used in art. A sculpting revolution has started when artists carved their masterpieces from wood. They are mean machines that could sometimes be used as medium of expressions. It started spreading all over the world and has since then became an established genre of art. A number of people also considered chainsaw art as a hobby and at the same time they sell their craft to avid collectors of the woodworks.
Choosing the appropriate chainsaw to work with is a bit tricky. There are factors that an operator needs to consider such as how fast it operates, the vibration, the size, the decibels the sound of its engine gives off, the weight, the price and of course the usage. These features are continuously improved by the industry as tested by a new 2015 model. Top review site in the industry has examined the best and meanest of the new chainsaws. Here are some of them:
· Husqvarna 240e
The industry seemed to be in consensus about this model being the best to use. It is a bit expensive than the other models but definitely worth the price. It has a fairly longer bar but it weighs lighter than some of the chainsaws in the market. As with its operating power, it has a reasonable speed and fine vibration.
· Poulan PP3516AVX
What is best about this chainsaw model is that it is less expensive compared to the other models. With a good speed it is also one of the fastest saws available.
· Solo 636
This chainsaw model is fairly easy to use as it is lighter than most saws. Its speed is also reasonable and it gives off relatively lower decibels which are considered safer to the operator’s ears.
If you want to purchase a chainsaw try to know which one you are most comfortable working with. This is not only for good results but also for safety. When a chainsaw roars, it could destroy for sure.
