The battery chainsaw is the perfect companion for anybody who needs power. There are a wide range of different battery powered chainsaws available on the market today. Most of them run on electricity but some will run off of a cigarette lighter. So how much power does each chainsaw actually consume? This article will list the amount of energy needed to operate a typical chainsaw and the type of battery that are used in it. This information should help you make an informed decision about what kind of chainsaw you need or want.
First of all, you should consider the weight of the chainsaw. Most of the time, lighter models have a lower operating weight than heavier ones. This is because the lighter the chainsaw, the easier it will be to operate; and the less you have to carry around the more area you can cut during one session. To perform a chainsaw test, you can use a voltmeter to measure the voltage that is used in the batteries.
The next step is to consider whether the chainsaw is a corded or chain driven model. The corded model uses a small electric motor to pull the chain through the wood. The chain drives the brushless motor which is then attached to the main battery. Either the corded or the chain drive model has an automatic oiling system which automatically cleans the motor, and the blade as well. This feature is often times referred to as “oiling”. An automatic oiling system requires that the user maintain an appropriate oil level by topping off the tank every time the blade is used.
Next, we will take a look at the battery life of these battery chainsaws. A typical corded chainsaw will have a long battery life lasting up to 200 hours. Many cordless models offer extended battery life, which can add up to more than double the battery life of a similar style chain saw without the weight. We recommend going with a cordless model if you plan on using the chainsaw in harsh or moist conditions for extended periods of time.
One important point to keep in mind is that the longer the battery, the lighter the chainsaw is going to be. This is because the chainsaw has less wire to carry around. However, many battery-powered chainsaws weigh quite a bit less than their chain powered cousins. If you plan on using your chainsaw in harsh or rugged conditions, a lightweight battery may not be your best choice. If you are shopping for a lightweight chainsaw simply for weight reduction, you will need to make other decisions such as battery life, battery type, cord length, and charger type.
As previously mentioned, corded models generally weigh more and are more difficult to operate with the exception of a few battery-powered chainsaws. If you are shopping for a cordless battery-powered chainsaw, you may have better luck finding one that either has cordless batteries or runs on a rechargeable battery. Rechargeable batteries provide their own power during times when there is no power available from the outlet. The advantage of having rechargeable batteries is that you will never be stranded with a dead battery; you can simply swap out the old one for a new one.
