It all depends on the proper chain saw
When carving the cutting power of a is saw not as important as during logging. If the saw is excessively motorized, this means increased wear on the cutting attachment. Powerful chainsaws are also less easy to handle in filigree work due to their higher weight. Special carving saws are the solution to the weight problem. They are adapted to their intended use in terms of their dimensions and performance and can be operated comfortably over an extended period of time. The weight difference to a "normal" chainsaw can easily amount to 2 kg and more!
