Take On Your Next Cutting Project With the Right Chainsaw From Lowe’s

A chainsaw is a great tool to have in your collection, whether you need it only for light-duty trimming or cutting down entire trees. However, not all chainsaws are the same; they come in different styles, different sizes and with different power output. Begin your search by understanding what you need your chainsaw to do, where it’ll be used and the general range of your projects.

Chainsaws vs. Pole Saws

What’s the difference between the two? A chainsaw is used for tasks that need to be completed on the ground. This includes cutting firewood, felling trees, and pruning or trimming low hedges. Pole saws sit on an extended neck so you’re able to cut limbs that are too high to reach with a conventional chainsaw.

Fuel Types

Electric: Available in corded and cordless varieties, they run more quietly than other models and have lightweight designs, plus you don’t have to mess with gas, oil and fumes. A battery-operated chainsaw is rechargeable and fully mobile, and most have batteries that can be swapped between other power tools on the platform. Higher battery voltage means more power and longer runtime, enabling you to do bigger projects alongside cutting small branches. 

Corded: Electric chainsaws are great for pruning and trimming. They plug in for operation, so mobility is restricted by cord length.

Gas: Gas chainsaws and gas pole saws are heavier, louder and require more maintenance than electric chainsaws, but they’re your most powerful options. They’re built to take on large, heavy-duty cutting projects that require lots of muscle, and they aren’t restricted by cords, so you can take them wherever the job is. Engines on gas models are two cycle, requiring a gas and oil mixture.


Once you’ve decided what fuel type will work best for your needs, it’s time to shop by length. The size, or length, of the bar determines the type of work it’s cut out to do. If it’s just general maintenance, look for small chainsaws with bars 6 to 14 inches. Thicker trees and logs are best tackled with 16- to 18-inch bars, and if you’re looking for commercial or professional use, bars 20 inches or longer get the job done.  

Other Chainsaw Features

To make the cutting experience easier and more convenient, you can look for models designed with features like antivibration, an automatic oiler and telescoping poles on pole saws. If you’re a trained arborist, top-handle chainsaws are perfect for your profession. For the do-it-yourselfer, a small gas chainsaw may be the best option.
