FAQs About Chainsaws for Sale
What size chainsaw do I need?
- When looking to buy a used chainsaw, the most important thing to consider is size. Trying to save money by buying a smaller saw might mean you’ll end up wasting time later when it can’t handle the workload. However, if you purchase a bigger saw so it can do everything you want, it will be heavier and more difficult to use, and it may even make small jobs harder. Contact your United Rentals branch today to speak to one of our experts who can help you find what you need to meet your job requirements.
Which is better, gas or electric chainsaws?
- Since battery technology has greatly improved in the last several years, electric chainsaws have become more popular. They are lightweight, quiet, require little maintenance and are better for the environment. Electric chainsaws are a good investment for suburban homeowners. However, if you have a job that requires some heavy-duty work, a gas-powered chainsaw is the way to go. They can cut through large trees, come in a range of bar lengths and, unlike their electric counterparts, have a much longer runtime. Check out our listings of used gas and electric chainsaws below to get started.
How long do chainsaws last?
- There’s no set timeframe for the life of a chainsaw. How long it last depends on how well you care for it. Typically one part will fail before the entire saw does. Usually, this is the chain or the bar, which are easily replaced. Repairing, performing maintenance and replacing broken parts are vital to long-lasting performance. Likewise, lubricating the chain and bar and dusting will also help extend the life of your saw. Proper care may result in a ten-year lifespan, if not longer.
