Questions & Answers

Does this electric chain saw rental work as well as a similarly sized gas chain saw?

Today's electric chain saw rentals actually are very similar in performance to a gas chain saw rental of the same bar size. Plus, you don't need to worry about mixing fuel, and the noise and fumes of a gas powered chain saw.

Is this electric chain saw rental powerful enough to cut firewood.

With a 16-inch blade, this chain saw rental probably isn't the right-sized tool for cutting firewood, whether the saw is gas- or electric-powered. However, it is a great tool for trimming and light or shoulder-height work.

Can I cut firewood with this chainsaw rental?

Any saw in the 16-inch bar range probably isn't the best choice for cutting up firewood. However, it's a great tool for light trimming, and cutting at shoulder height.

Do's & Don'ts
