Petrol chainsaws are aimed at the commercial market generally i.e. the professional gardener and landscaper. A petrol chainsaw offers extra strong cutting performance allowing professionals to tackle the most demanding of jobs that an electric chainsaw would normally struggle with.
The most obvious advantage of a petrol chainsaw is the flexibility to use it anywhere without being tethered to a power cable. Working at height and in remote locations is where they come into their own.
Understanding the basic workings of a petrol chainsaw will give you a better chance of determining faults as and when they arise. That little bit of extra knowledge will give you a good head start when there are unexpected breakdowns. With a regular service with Cutting Edge Machinery, this will help keep your petrol chainsaw in tip top condition throughout the season.
Knowing how to maintain and fit replacement parts is a necessary part of owning a petrol chainsaw or any other petrol machinery. Most replacement parts like the chain only take a few minutes to replace, but it is also important to seek help and advice if you are unsure with any maintenance work. Here at Cutting Edge Machinery we are only too happy to help and offer essential basic operation and maintenance advice when buying a chainsaw from us.
Petrol machinery, especially chainsaws, often operate in messy, damp and cold environments, so dust, dirt and water will get in. Keeping the parts clean and clear is essential for the efficient and safe running of the chainsaw. The petrol motor draws in a lot of air during operation and with that, it will inevitably suck in dirt, dust and water. You filter can clog up very quickly, so knowing how to change your filter is essential to avoid potential lengthy down time.
