Chainsaw Reviews and Pole Saws

Taking on chainsaw reviews allows us to cover battery, gas, and electric models. We cover these tools in a way that is relevant for professional landscapers, arborists, and forestry professionals. We also cover tools for large landowners. Our professional reviews of chainsaws and pole saws cover both gas and battery-powered models. Why do we cover battery-powered models? Our research indicates that new battery-powered models are more and more in demand from municipalities and residential areas where noise is a concern. Additionally, safety is increased with battery-powered top handle saws when used in lifts. Starting is instantaneous (no pull cord) and they go silent when you need to talk to your person on the ground. Chainsaw Reviews and Pole Saws With respect to gas-powered chainsaws, we look primarily at power and durability. Pole saws vary from fixed-length models to adjustable pole models. Together, these represent two very important tools for forestry and landscape professionals.
