Things I Love about this 16 Inch ChainSaw
Electric with Built-In Current Limiter
You will appreciate how much simpler this electric 16 Inch ChainSaw is to use than its gas powered competitors. Gas powered motors require you to mix a specific ratio of oil and gas blends and you just about wear yourself out trying to pull start a stubborn gas motor before you can even get to work. With this machine, you simply plug it in, add some oil for the automatic oiling system, pull the trigger and this saw roars to life. You are ready to dive right in to work.
This 16 Inch ChainSaw comes equipped with a current limiter for the motor. This limiter works to protect your chainsaw’s motor from burnout, by reducing power to the motor when the saw becomes overloaded. This extends the life of your motor and your power tool and helps you to keep it running at optimum performance.
The electric motor is so much quieter than its gas powered counterparts. It also reduces emissions and exhaust and does not leave you smelling of nasty and obnoxious gas fumes when your work is complete.
