chainsaws to all around ranching or leisure hobby saws.
all manufacturers will have a variety of saws in multiple lines for you to
choose from. Most of the professional or pro caliber saws will have an aluminum
or cast magnesium frame. There will still be plastic components like the cover
or fuel tank, but the metal used in the frame work keeps the saw strong and dispersing

intended for demanding use or someone that is demanding high performance in
their equipment or the work application. These saws will be heavy duty with additional
performance package upgrades and features. Full professional saws are designed

Farmer. These saws will be of a higher horse power and are generally referred

pro chainsaws, but will be priced more affordable. Semi-pro chainsaws are great
for 2-4 times a week use as a suggested guide.

designed with features from the pro saws to keep the operator comfortable. Good
vibration dampeners or isolation springs help to keep the engine vibration and
operator fatigue down. These saws are great for the occasional use at home. Homeowner
chainsaws are great for the 1-2 times a week use or less as a guide.
