Depending on the type of chainsaw and actual usage, you can expect a gas chainsaw to run between 15 and 40 minutes before refilling. Most battery-powered chainsaws can run for up to 2 hours, but there are also high-capacity power packs that can last much longer.

How long does a chainsaw last?

Under normal use, you can expect a good quality chainsaw to last at least 10 years. How long it will last depends greatly on maintenance; good maintenance can easily double the life to 20 years or more.

What is the runtime of a battery-powered chain saw?

The battery-powered chainsaw is cordless and noiseless. It does not rely on environmentally polluting fuels and does not emit any harmful gases. It has advanced features including LED visual and audible charging alerts, temperature sensors to avoid overheating, and a rain cover. A chainsaw with a standard battery pack can give you up to 2 hours of run time.

However, there are some electric chainsaws that you can get an extra battery pack to use. For example, the ASJMREYE cordless chainsaw can be bought in a two-battery chainsaw style, which can greatly improve the working time of the chainsaw.

Next we talk about a few common questions

1. Is ethanol harmful to my chainsaw?

Yes, ethanol is very bad for your chain saw's engine. Ethanol dissolves the gum deposits and lacquer deposits that previously settled in your engine. This thick mixture can clog the gadgets and filters inside your chainsaw.

2.How many kinds of chainsaws are used commonly?

  1. Battery chainsaw: It is a lightweight, portable, and instant starting machine.
  2. Electric chainsaw: It has infinite run time. It can start instantly and is lightweight.
  3. Farm or ranch chainsaw: It is used for storm cleanup and firewood cutting.
  4. Homeowner chainsaw: It features advanced technology and general German engineering. Its Quickstop feature is a chain brake system designed to stop the chain in a fraction of a second and can be activated by inertia in the event of a kickback. A homeowner chainsaw has many more features, including anti-vibration technology for maximum user comfort.
  5. Professional chainsaw: It can handle the toughest task easily.

3.How do I measure the speed of my chainsaw?

You can measure the speed of your chainsaw by using a tachometer. A tachometer is an instrument used to measure the rotation or number of revolutions of a crankshaft in a chainsaw. A tachometer measures the number of revolutions per minute (RPM) of your chain saw.

Older models of tachometers used a needle and dial to show the reading, while today's highly advanced tachometers have a digital LED display where the reading is shown. It's a simple way to do it.

4.What maintenance should I perform daily on my chainsaw?

You must clean the outside of your chainsaw daily. You must check that the throttle control and the throttle lockout are working safely. You must make sure that your chain brake is working safely; if the chain catcher is damaged, you must replace it at once.

Final Remarks

In short, the exact run time of a chainsaw varies depending on the type and model of chainsaw. Gas-powered units have a shorter run time than battery-powered units. However, they are usually quick to refuel compared to battery charging which can take 1-2 hours, but also because of the restricted distance causing a large range reduction in the working range of gas chainsaws. This means they can be up and running much faster. You should assess your needs and buy the right equipment for you accordingly.
