Husqvarna 16 Inch 2-Stroke x-Torq Gas Powered Chain Saw
A gas operated chainsaw is a useful piece of equipment for commercial logging operations, tree trimming businesses, and homeowners. Some people think that only homeowners who have wood burning stoves, or wood burning fireplaces would use these tools on a regular basis. That is not necessarily the truth.
A lot of property owners have to trim limbs on trees, and cut up limbs that fall from their trees during storms. If you have a small piece of property, and do not have the need for wood to burn, then an electric chainsaw might be a better option for you. If you have a larger piece of property and do not want to fight with an extension cord then find the best gas chainsaw on the market that fits into your budget, and buy it.

Features I like on this Gas Powered Chain Saw
I believe that this might be the best Gas Powered Chainsaw to buy. When you are operating a chain saw the bar of the saw starts to get hot as you cut the wood. The bar of the saw holds the cutting chain in the proper position. As the bar heats up it contracts and causes the chain to become too loose.
A loose chain is one that will not cut efficiently, and is more apt to break. Normally a saw operator will use a screwdriver or a chainsaw wrench to make the adjustments that correct the tension of the chain. These adjustments can be hard to make if you are in a tree when the chain becomes loose, or when you are in the woods away from level places to place the saw while you tighten the chain. With the no tool required tension adjustment feature you can simply adjust the tension of the chain with one hand. You will be able to maintain perfect tension without having to stop what you are doing and drag out wrenches and screwdrivers.
Quick Release Air filter
The life of a saw may be determined by how clean you keep the air filter. A chainsaw has to be able to get air to breathe, and tiny particles of wood chips, and debris are constantly being sucked into the air return of the engine. The air filter catches these tiny debris particles and keeps them from being sucked into the engine of your machine.
The filter will clog up with these debris particles, sand, and dust. The more you use your saw the faster the filter clogs up. You have to remove that filter and clean all of the trash out of it so the saw can get the right amount of air to keep it running smoothly. The quick release filter feature allows you to remove the filter and clean it out without going through a lot of trouble. If the filter is easier to get to, and easier to replace, then you will clean it more frequently. I believe that the quick release air filter is a feature that will double the amount of working hours a saw has.
Forged steel is a lot stronger than most other types of steel. The crankshaft of a chainsaw takes a lot of punishment and having one made of forged steel means that you have an item that will last longer than most other chainsaws.
