The Top Chainsaw deals this Black Friday & Cyber Monday
Black Friday is coming up quickly, and if you are in the market to buy a chainsaw you are in the right place. We have analyzed what we think are the best chainsaws this year and hope to see some good discounts on them.
There are three different types of chainsaws that we have analyzed below, each having their benefits and pitfalls. Gas, cordless electric and fully electric. Firstly the traditional gas chainsaw outperforms the others with unmatchable power but has a continuous running cost. The cordless models are often cheaper and lighter than the others but do restrict where you can use them. And finally the cordless, run by battery packs are great to transport anywhere you need but generally lack power and can run out of battery quickly.
Dependent on your needs, these are the top chainsaws available to purchase in 2018. We will post all the best chainsaw Black Friday deals we find right here, so be sure to check back.

Worx 16-Inch 14.5 Amp Electric Chainsaw
We were very impressed with this inexpensive electric chainsaw. It features a 14.5 Amp motor, rather than a gas powered motor, to enable cutting of light woods. It is a corded electric machine, but that gives it a really low price and therefore could be a perfect product to look for Black Friday chainsaw discounts on.

We think that this is one of the best cordless electric chainsaws on the market. Compatible with Greenworks 40v Gmax Li-Ion battery pack system, it makes it a great purchase if you already own a few of the tools or want to get a set. The has over 25 different tools so that’s something else to consider when looking for Chainsaw Black Friday deals this year.

Husqvarna 455 Rancher 20-Inch

The chainsaw is also designed to have an easy start system as well as a low vibration, therefore, making it very user-friendly. An air cleaning system helps to prevent dust or debris getting stuck in the motor, which aids reliability. This gas chainsaw is packed full of features and would be one of our recommendations if Black Friday deals crop up on this chainsaw.

The Remington is built with efficiency, lightness, and size in mind. Very easy to use and a 16-inch bar means that it is perfect for odd jobs with light cutting required.

DEWALT 60V Max Brushless Chainsaw
This cordless chainsaw is very powerful and designed for slightly more heavyweight jobs than some of the other electric chainsaws here. A 60V motor powered by Dewalts battery packs make it extremely convenient to use especially if you already have other Dewalt tools that use the same system.

There is a chain brake to prevent kickbacks, making it a good option for use on medium to large trees. The chainsaw is also low maintenance because it has an auto oiler to help it run smoothly.
Poulan Pro Chainsaw
The 50cc two-stroke engine is combined with an air filter system, which is designed to help the chainsaw run efficiently for long periods of time. One thing that we liked about this chainsaw is that it comes with a carry case. Built with a relatively large 20-inch cutting bar this could be a good option if chainsaw Black Friday or Cyber Monday discounts are put out and you have need for this larger bar.

This power combined with an automatic oiler, she is built to run for long periods of time.
