The pruning chainsaw
The pruning chainsaw is built with specific characteristics, for the particular area of work for which it is intended. Of course, not all working situations are the same and not all plants need the same type of pruning. Pruning a fruit tree or a tree in a park is not exactly the same, although it is always pruning. Therefore, although some typical characteristics of these means are common, there are different types of pruning chainsaws. What differentiates them most are the length of the cutting bar and the engine power. In addition to the type of power supply: battery-powered machines are intended more for hobby or "light" professional use, while motor-driven machines are more suitable for professional use.
The characteristics of the pruning chainsaw
The pruning chainsaw serves above all as an aid in the practice of pruning: while the pruning shears are used by the pruner to cut small branches and branches, the machine reserves the task of cutting the branches with a larger section. The most obvious characteristics of this medium are: the reduced size of the chain holder bar (usually not exceeding 35 cm in length), the reduced speed of the chain, compared to the "bigger" sisters intended for the actual cut; the reduced power, given the less effort to which the engine is subjected in this type of operation. In addition, there is often a ring fixed to the machine body or obtained in the rear part of the handle: its presence is used to allow the rope to pass through to raise the chainsaw on the trees.
