In my Husqvarna chainsaw reviews article I talked about the best possible brand, but this is just a quick warning about where you buy chainsaws from. People want to know where to buy cheap chainsaws and this leads to some very serious dangers.
A chainsaw is a totally lethal weapon and all due care must be taken when you use them. Protective clothing and footwear is very important.
But before any of that you need to buy a chainsaw first.
There has been a lot in the news recently about people buying inferior or even knock-off chainsaws. Many are coming from China and are not made to the required standards. You MUST make totally sure that what you are buying is a legitimate product. It must be branded and it must be of the highest possible build quality.
I linked to Amazon in my article and they are one of the best resources for many goods. They guarantee that you are not buying anything but the real product and never sell products that are not from legitimate suppliers.
Under no circumstance would I ever recommend buying a chainsaw from ebay or from anywhere but a 100% reliable source.
News stories focused on people buying chainsaws from people going door to door offering deals. Never ever do this. You cannot trust that what you are buying is safe to use and you are putting your life in danger.
Chainsaws must be used with utmost respect for the potential harm they can cause and should be guaranteed safe. Never buy from anyone giving you a great offer that seems too good to be true. The chances are you will cause yourself great injury or even death. They are not to be under-estimated.
Buy branded products only from reputable stores online or from a reputable company on the High Street. Preferably from a specialist store. Also read my chainsaw maintenance tips to keep your chainsaw is top working order.
