A Husqvarna 2 Stroke Gas Powered Chain Saw is handier than a shirt pocket for people who have trees in their yards. I believe that homes should actually come complete with these tools, but until that happens you will want to consider buying one for yourself.

Features I Love of Husqvarna 2 Stroke Gas Powered Chain Saw
The best features on this gas chainsaw are in my opinion the ones listed below. You know what you need in a saw so read the following descriptions and see if they apply to the way you will be using a saw.
Start Switch is always in the “ON” Position
If you have ever tried to crank a gas chain saw and flooded it because you had the start switch in the wrong position while you were pulling on the pull rope then you will appreciate the positioning of the start switch. With the start switch in the proper position for cranking you will not have to worry about flooding the machine.
This saw has a sixteen inch bar so it is capable of cutting through the majority of limbs and tree trunks that you might have. It only weighs nine point two pounds so you can use this tool to trim tree limbs that are over your head, and you can use it to cut up firewood because the bar is long enough to cut through the majority of trees that a property owner might want to fell without the help of a professional. Most of the chainsaws that are this light are electric chainsaws that are made especially for trimming limbs and not intended as firewood cutters.
The Owner’s Manual
I like the fact that the owner’s manual that comes with this gas chainsaw is full of pictures to help a novice find the different parts of their tool, and understand how each of the pieces of the equipment function. You will easily understand everything in the manual and will have no trouble learning to use all of the features yours saw has.
Centrifugal Air Cleaning System
A centrifugal air cleaning system increases the life of the gas chainsaw. The air filter on these pieces of equipment must be kept clean so that the machine gets proper ventilation. When you are cutting fibrous items pieces of the item will be thrown into the air and will be sucked into the engine of the machine. The air filter inside a saw is made to trap these particles and stop them from getting into your system. The centrifugal system allows your air filtration system to capture larger pieces of debris as well as the fine powdery dust.
When you keep your air filter clean your saw can function at its best. Your saw will last about twice as long if the air filters are kept properly cleaned. And your money for chainsaw sharpener also saved.
The ergonomic trigger is designed to not cause your hand to start to cramp. Some saws have triggers that can become painful to depress after just a few moments of use. This ergonomic trigger will allow you to work for a longer period of time without getting cramps in your finger, or hand.

I highly recommend this tool in all of my chainsaw reviews because it is a high quality item that will last for a long period of time. I do recommend that you read the owner’s manual and that you buy safety equipment like goggles for eye protection and gloves for protection of your hands.
If you wear long sleeves while you are cutting wood you will prevent many painful nicks and cuts that the piece of wood that are tossed behind the saw as it cuts might cause.
I also suggest that you wear shoes with closed toes when you are cutting wood. You want to protect your feet from being injured while you work. Open toed shoes, or sandals, expose your feet and create the possibility that you will be injured.
