Cordless Chainsaws

While industrial chainsaws tend to be powered by diesel or petrol, electric chainsaws can be plugged into a standard household power outlet. This simple difference is why more and more people are choosing to use small chainsaws as an everyday gardening and woodworking tool.

When you have a small cordless chainsaw at your disposal, working with wood at home is a breeze. But with so many options available, how do you know which to buy? And can you be sure a smaller version of this popular wood-cutting machine can cope with the demands you place on it?

The key to choosing the right option is to learn about the benefits and features available. That’s why we’ve created a short guide to buying battery-powered chainsaws in the UK.

Cordless Chainsaws

Why choose an electric chainsaw?

A battery-powered chainsaw won’t give you the power required for large-scale tree-felling and industrial-scale woodworking projects. However, if you need a quick, simple way to cut wood at home, it’s the ideal solution.

For example, if you need a regular supply of chopped wood for a wood-burning stove at home, a cordless mini chainsaw is the perfect solution. These relatively simple power tools make light work of cutting softwoods in a hurry.

You’ll always need to think about how to source a supply of fuel when you have a standard chainsaw. And there’s also the complex issue of fuel storage to consider. A cordless electric chainsaw delivers instant performance via a standard UK power outlet.

With both corded and cordless electric chainsaws to choose from, cutting wood quickly at home has never been easier. But if you’re still undecided, there are a few distinct benefits associated with small electric chainsaws.

What are the benefits of small chainsaws?

If you’re looking for a simple, easy-to-use gardening, woodworking or landscaping tool, an electrically powered, cordless chainsaw is ideal for several reasons:

Minimise noise pollution

If you live in the city or suburbs, you’ve probably got neighbours to think about. Regular, fuel-powered chainsaws are extremely noisy, which could create serious problems with the people who live nearby. But a cordless electric chainsaw is much quieter.

Minimise emissions

Anything you can do to cut your home’s carbon footprint can make a difference these days. By switching to an electric chainsaw, you won’t be relying on the direct use of fossil fuels when you cut wood. Not only that, but you also won’t have to worry about air pollution and odours wafting into your neighbours’ gardens and yards.

Fewer kickbacks

Kickbacks occur when the chain hits an object or surface that causes a sudden and severe vibration or ‘kick’. This can be painful and frustrating, and it can slow the wood-cutting process down considerably. Small electric chainsaws cause far fewer kickbacks than their fuel-powered alternatives, however.

Extra mobility

If you need a small chainsaw for pruning trees and breaking down furniture, you’ll work faster and more safely if you can remain untethered. A cordless chainsaw allows you to move freely — without worrying about tangled wires and tripping hazards. Because there’s no need for a constant supply of electricity, you’re free to work almost anywhere.

Cheaper

Electric chainsaws are considerably cheaper than fuel-powered alternatives. Not only that, but electric options also don’t require a constant supply of petrol or diesel — both of which are very expensive right now.

Safer

It’s widely accepted that electric chainsaws are safer than petrol-powered alternatives. For a start, the chain speeds tend to be lower. Not only that, but chains on battery chainsaws also only run when you’re actively cutting. And depending on the battery-powered chainsaw you choose, the bar should be no more than 18 inches long, which makes the tool far easier to control.

Cordless electric mini chainsaws provide a cheaper, safer and more versatile alternative to their fuel-powered counterparts. Check out the latest selection of electric chainsaws at ToolStore UK, and make working with wood at home easier and safer than ever before.

What are the best cordless chainsaws?

If you’re looking for a simple, easy-to-use gardening, woodworking or landscaping tool, an electrically powered, cordless chainsaw is ideal for several reasons:

Part of DeWalt’s FlexVolt range, the DEWALT DCMCS574X1 54v brushless chainsaw offers a genuine alternative to a petrol chainsaw, with a powerful, high-efficiency brushless 2,100w motor, delivering the equivalent to 2.7HP / 40cc power from a petrol machine. However, being battery powered, the DCMCS574X1 requires less maintenance than a petrol chainsaw and has an auto-oiling system to keep the chain automatically lubricated. Built to professional specifications, the tooled chain tensioning system helps ensure the chain remains reliably tensioned during use, while the 45cm bar and chain delivers fast, efficient cutting performance.

Garden tool market leaders STIHL also have an extensive range of cordless chainsaws that are lightweight, well-balanced and easy to use. The battery can be used in other STIHL cordless tools, so if you have other STIHL cordless tools this might be a good way to go! STIHL’s cordless chainsaws have even been recognised as some of the quietest on the market by the Noise Abatement Society so you won’t even need to wear hearing protection!
