Not all chainsaws are the same
Nowadays there are so many chainsaw models on the market that it’s not always easy to work out which one is right for us.
Of course, we all know the general rule of thumb: basic devices are good for occasional activities, whereas professional ones—which are high-powered and equipped with precise features—are more suitable for intensive and specialised uses.
But if we were to ask ourselves what the most suitable model for home use is, which tool would we choose?
The answer would undoubtedly be a battery-powered chainsaw.
Battery-powered chainsaws are perfect for pruning the bulkiest branches in the garden, clearing bushes and brambles or chopping firewood. Practical and lightweight, they are popular with leisure users for three simple reasons.
Reason 1: they are easy to use
Compared with petrol chainsaws, battery-powered chainsaws don't use fuel mixture and have much fewer controls: no starter, no decompression valve or throttle trigger. Starting is simple and instant. In addition, they have no engine, so there is no risk of engine flooding and maintenance doesn't need to be too specific.
Reason 2: you can take them wherever you want
Unlike corded electric chainsaws, which can only be used within a limited radius of a plug, cordless chainsaws can be transported anywhere. Practical and handy, they allow you to work with total freedom of movement even on large gardens, without running the risk of tripping over the extension cord.
Reason 3: they are quiet and eco-friendly
That’s right, the third good reason for buying a battery-powered chainsaw is its quietness. Unlike models with two-stroke engines, electric chainsaws allow you to work in public or private environments without the fear of disturbing neighbours or passers-by, and with no limitation on working hours.
In addition to being quieter, battery-powered chainsaws guarantee the same performance as petrol engines, with the addition of having low environmental impact.
So, forget the excess smoke and the discomfort caused by annoying vibrations: by choosing a battery-powered chainsaw, you can keep your garden tidy in comfort while preserving the environment.
And if the battery runs out while you're pruning? No problem, just replace it with a new one or take the battery charger with you, so that you can carry on taking care of the garden without wasting time.
Which one should I choose?
If you’re looking for a battery-powered chainsaw with a compact and ergonomic design, the MT 2200 Li-ion is the model for you.
Thanks to its small size, this machine is perfect for small pruning jobs in the garden or forest. Moreover, being very light, it allows you to move quickly and effortlessly. Adjusting the chain is much easier thanks to the SDS chain tension adjustment system, which requires no specific tools.
The battery lasts a long time and recharges in just 90 minutes.
