If you’re looking for a powerful chainsaw that doesn’t require gas, corded chainsaws are more powerful than ever. Though they’re easier to start than gas-powered motors, corded chainsaws require a decent extension cord to be useful. Many corded chainsaws have automatic oiling systems that keep you working longer, and help save you the trouble of regular oiling. Any chain will loosen as you work, but many corded chainsaws have built-in tension adjusters that save you the need for extra tools. Consider the weight and general comfort of the design if you plan to work for extended periods. Electric chainsaws are usually less expensive than gas-powered models and save you money by plugging into the wall rather than guzzling gas.
