 Petrol Chainsaw Canberra

If you’re a homeowner, landowner, or professional faced with a larger plot of terrain with dense undergrowth, or assorted trees in need of felling or simply trimming your best bet is a petrol chainsaw.

A petrol-powered chainsaw will provide the strength you need making light work of your job. Petrol powered chainsaws are more powerful than their electric counterparts

Smaller battery chainsaws are great for smaller, shorter jobs, but larger jobs benefit from a powerful 2 stroke chainsaw.

What the best size chainsaw?

Chainsaw size chart

The best sized chainsaw is the one the most suited to what you are cutting. Biggest is not always best.

The most common size of petrol chainsaws are the 14″, 16″ or 18″ petrol chain saws for work around the home.

But Husqvarna petrol chainsaws also come in larger models such as the 20″, 24″ and 28″ chainsaw  for professional use.

Have a look at this handy chainsaw size chart to help guide you in deciding what size you need:

2 Stroke Petrol Chainsaw

A petrol chainsaw is powered by a 2-stroke engine. They require a mixture of oil and petrol to operate, as instructed by the instruction manual that comes with your saw. 40:1 is accepted as an average ratio for two-stroke engines if you don’t have your manufacturers instructions. This means 25mls of two stroke oil per litre of petrol

What about chainsaw fumes?

Some petrol chainsaws discharge more fumes than others. These fumes can be not only bad for the environment, but also for your health. The Husqvarna Petrol Chainsaws range feature their X-Torq engines. Husqvarna states that these “deliver lower fuel consumption and reduced exhaust emission levels in accordance with the world’s most stringent environmental guidelines’

Petrol Chainsaw Safety Features

Safety is a major issue when it comes to chainsaws.

Anything which can cut so easily through tree limbs could certainly present a danger to other more delicate targets. If you are not accustomed to using a chainsaw, you need to make sure you educate yourself in how to handle them safely.

But most modern petrol chainsaws offer a variety of essential safety features, so make sure you look for those you think you need. These safety features include the following:

Chain brake

Just as the name implies, a chain brake will stop the chain if the front handguard is pushed forward. It will also stop the chain in the event of a kickback. Most saws come equipped with this vital feature, but make sure yours does.

Chain catcher

This feature keeps a thrown chain from flying back at the user. It will also catch a chain that has been loosened due to poor tensioning or inadequate maintenance.

Trigger lockout

This is a separate palm switch which must be pressed before the throttle trigger engages to prevent a petrol chainsaw from operating when not in the hands of the user.

Case or sheath

A full case or sheath for the bar and chain will protect against inadvertent cuts and leaks. Such cases may be available aftermarket, but some are offered as part of the original petrol chainsaw purchase.

Automatic chain oiler

In order for your chainsaw to operate at peak efficiency, the chain must be maintained through regular oiling. Many models come with an automatic oiling option, allowing for effortless maintenance.

Bucking spikes

These are sharp spikes near the base of the bar to allow for easy pivoting of the chainsaw downward. Most models come equipped with this important safety feature, but you should be aware that the metal variety spike is more effective than the plastic variety.

Tool-free chain adjuster

This is a wheel and crank mechanism which allows you to adjust the tension of the chain without the use of a screwdriver or wrench. Proper chain tension is important for safety reasons and being able to maintain this tension without tools while in the middle of a big job is a major convenience.

Anti-vibration

Most petrol chainsaws have rubber bushings or metal springs between the handle and the motor to reduce vibration. These help to reduce discomfort and fatigue, both of which can lead to carelessness.

Reduced kickback chain

Extra guard links and a less aggressive profile, narrower at the tip, will prevent the saw from taking too large a bite, which may cause a kickback.
