About Petrol Chainsaw

Petrol chainsaws are a powerful and cost-effective tool in handling all of your timber-cutting needs. Depending on what you want to do, and how much of it, you'll need to consider the various makes and the sizes of their available models. If you've only got a small amount of wood cutting to do during the year ? tidying up trees that have fallen during stormy weather for example, something small may fit the bill. A McCulloch with a short 14-inch bar is a handy petrol chainsaw that's easy to use. It features a manual pump that's simply pushed to give the engine advance fuel, allowing for an easier start with fewer pulls. It's also extremely fuel efficient, with 20 percent lower consumption as well as 70 percent fewer emissions. A longer bar is required for heavier cutting work, however, and there's a whole range of 16-inch saws to choose from. They'll easily get you around the most demanding of trees and cutting jobs. A chainsaw is a highly dangerous tool, and before using a new one, even if you?re used to chainsaws, you should read the accompanying material that will come with it. As well as a manual, chainsaws will also come with a variety of useful tools that you?ll need to service and maintain the machine. Chain tension, for instance, must be kept at the right level or it may pose a risk: too loose or tight and during use it may snap off and cause damage or injury. Before the first use, make sure you know the correct oil and petrol mix that your particular model uses.
