Chain saws and accessories – timber harvest essentials
A chain saw ist one of the most important tools for timber harvest, but it has its other uses in many applications of forestry work. In our forestry shop you find chain saws for a great number of applications: for felling of trees, for processing firewood or for smaller sawing operations in landscape or private gardening. There are also mobile saw mills and debarking attachments for chain saws. Grube has the right product for you.
Before you buy – some useful hints
Before you purchase a chain saw you should be clear about what you will need it for. This orientation is decisive for determining the required power, the length of the guide bar and the type of chain saw and teeth. A 4,5kW chainsaw, with 60 cm guidebar and full chisel chain is quite out of place in landscape gardening. So is a 2,5kW saw with 30 cm guidebar when it comes to timber harvesting.
Which chainsaw to buy?
There are many chain saws for different purposest:
- petrol chain saws: „the classic“
various uses according to power, guide bar length and chain type: for timber harvesting, agriculture or landscape gardening
- electronic chain saws: „the low-priced“
for semiprofessional use at home, e.g. for hobby. Great power via power plug for little money
- cordless chain saws: „the modern“
new technology with many advantages: light-weight, low-noise, low-maintenance, almost emission-free independent of a power network
- chain saw carving saws: „the creative“
light, small chainsaws for carving and engraving work. Very popular with chainsaw artists
- top handle chain saw: „the special“
compact, well balanced chainsaw especially developed for arborist work. Handling of this saw presupposes an experienced user. Not to be recommended for other kinds of "normal" chainsaw work.
