Electric Chain Saw vs Gas-Powered Chain Saw Video
Hi, I'm Tim Carter from AsktheBuilder.com. Let's do a neat demonstration. Let's see if an electric chain saw can do as good a job as a gas-powered chain saw. Both units have brand new blades and they weigh about the same. The blade length is about the same on both. So it should be a pretty equal test. Let's see how they do cutting through this 6-inch piece of hard maple.
Now, I know I don't have a face shield and don't have chaps on. I understand all that, but I am going to wear eye protection and I have glasses on and some good safety gloves. Let's see what happens.
First the gas-powered chain saw cuts through the log. That wasn't bad. It cut through like butter. Next we will see what happens with the electric chain saw.
Well, you saw it. The clear winner was the gas-powered chain saw. However, the electric saw did a pretty good job. I am confident that it will do good in the forest. I am going to check it out. (Extension cord doesn't reach!) Oh, maybe not.
