Best budget electric chainsaw
If the convenience of an electric chainsaw best fits your needs but you're working within a tighter budget, experts and owners recommend the Craftsman 34118. This model costs less than most electric chainsaws and features tool-free tension adjustment, an inertia-activated chain brake and automatic chain oiling. Be advised that there's no anti-vibration handle, though, so the chainsaw could become more tiring to use on bigger, more time-consuming jobs. User reviews for this Craftsman chainsaw are overwhelmingly positive. Note that the Craftsman 34118 is made by Poulan for Craftsman and is nearly identical to the Poulan Pro 400E (*Est. $90), which lacks the Craftsman's tool-free chain tensioning. The Craftsman chainsaw has a one-year warranty.
