Quality Chainsaws | Wide Range of Chainsaws

A chainsaw is an essential item in any garden shed. Ever wanted to remove an annoying branch or a small tree that was blocking a wonderful view? A chainsaw will ensure that your garden or tree area looks its best. Save the trouble and do everything within a fraction of the time you would take with any other method!

We have a large variety of different models chainsaw available. Chainsaws are most commonly used in logging activities such as felling, delimbing and bucking. They are also used by tree surgeons to fell trees and remove branches and foliage. Other applications include cutting firebreaks, rescue operations by fire brigade, and the harvesting of firewood.

Chainsaws consist of a power unit, petrol or electric, a guide bar, and the cutting chain.

There are various types of chainsaws available for different applications. Your options will include arborist, hobby, semi-professional and professional models. Lengths of the guide bar and chain varies, as well as the size of chain. The top brands include more safety features and operator protection.

Chainsaws can be dangerous, and serious injuries can arise from incorrect use. Protective clothing should always be worn while operating them. Chains must be kept sharp to perform well, this can be done with a round file or your dealer can sharpen the chain for you.

Chainsaws are specialist equipment, and should be purchased from specialists. Advice on the correct model for your application, as well as advice on the safe operation should be given obtained when purchasing.

Another useful tool to have around is an axe. The axe is an ancient tool used to shape, split and cut wood. Most modern axes have steel heads and wooden or fiberglass handles. Modern axes are specialized by use, size and form.

Hatchets are lightweight axes with a short handle which makes them easy to carry around. They are also suitable for indoor use for example as a kitchen axe. The heads are thin head and the back of head can also be used as a hammer for lighter work.

Hand axes are slightly longer than hatchets and ideal for trimming trees and other general purpose work. The head is equipped with a thin blade and, together with the longer handle, provides a longer swing and a deeper cut than a hatchet.

Felling axes are heavier axes with longer handles and a thinner edge, to cut easily into the wood when felling trees.

Splitting axes have a special wedge-shaped head, and with it’s weight, provides easier penetration when forcing the wood apart. Mauls are heavy sledge hammers which are used to drive poles or, together with a splitting wedge, to split very hard and thick wood.
