Test 5 best semi-professional chainsaws with reviews

Here are the reviews for specific chainsaw products.

Stihl MS 210 C-BE

ms201cePower: 35.2 cc

Weight: 10.6 lb (4.8 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 102 dB

Price: $ 290

Advantages: We are old school loggers. We like to start our saws with a jerk. So it took us a few tries before succeeding with the starting system “Stihl 2 Easy Start System.” And besides, we accidentally drowned the engine. Rather than jerk the rope, you should slowly pull the starter handle, which was the spring tension mechanism and then releases it. Once we got used to it, we have come to love this gadget with the choke (choke) integrated switch “On / Off” and the throttle lock. Although classified for casual users, this saw for works like a professional product.

Disadvantages: It is a little expensive.

Rating: 5/5

Husqvarna 450

450

 

Power: 38.2 cc

Weight: 10.4 lb (4.72 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 103 dB

Price: $ 220

Advantages: Easy to start. A reasonably fast saw with good insulation against the vibration of the handle. Slightly slower than the Solo or Poulan saw, and almost equal to the Stihl. The best chainsaw to buy.

Disadvantages: Not much to say.

Only that you need a screwdriver to remove the air cleaner cover and the spark plug. You can potentially lose the screw.

Rating: 5/5

Poulan PP3516AVX

 

Poulan PP3516AVX

Power: 35 cc

Weight: 13.5 lb (6.2 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 103 dB

Price: $ 140

 

Advantages: The Poulan Saw offers great cutting speed and power for a saw to such a low price. It cuts almost as fast as Solo, the fastest of the group. It is possible to stretch the chain without tools, making its operation very easy. It is to fold the handle on the clamping and rotating.

Disadvantages: The Poulan has frequently arrested but we can adjust with the idle speed. Given the way the saw worked well, we think this is a flaw that could be corrected under the warranty.

Rating: 3/5

 Solo 636

 

soloPower: 36.3 cc

Weight: 9.3 lb (4.2 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 100 dB

Price: $ 305

Advantages: A compression release button is usually located on large two-stroke engines, but Solo has one, which contributes to its fast and safe start. The saw offers other simple functions like a key that works on the head bolts and spark plug. Although the filter cover and the spark plug require a screwdriver, the screw is captive and cannot be lost. Solo turned out to be our fastest saw, while being light and well balanced. It is perfect for limbing and trail maintenance.

Disadvantages: the designers of the saw were badly drawn, the starter grip that is too small. Gasoline and oil caps are also poorly designed. They are distracting details for such an expensive product.

Rating: 4/5

McCulloch MCC1635AK

mcculloch-cs-420t-5ccf832c_50a346dc31c34Power: 35 cc

Power: 12.3 lb (5.6 kg)

Length: 16 inches (37.5 cm)

Noise: 103 dB

Price: $ 140

Advantages: Our preference is always for professional equipment, but it is always good to know that you can get a good price for a chainsaw. McCulloch is clearly designed for light work and commuter wood chores. It worked reasonably well, except for the big logs. We also liked its ease of access to the air filter and the large starter handle.

Disadvantages: It would do well to make the operation of the least recalcitrant choke and improve the quality of the air filter material. It should also improve the sustainability of this model.

Rating: 2/5
