Professional chainsaws aren't made for everyone.

These chainsaws are designed to cut all day, everyday.

There are a few things that separate professional grade chainsaws from other saws:

Top Handle ChainsawTop Handle


Farm and ranch chainsaws introduce a new style to the mix: top handle models. These chainsaws are usually smaller and easier to operate than rear handle models.

Due to the handle position and light weight, top handle chainsaws are used to cut branches and tree limbs. These are popular with folks cutting on ladders and in trees, or other situations where you need to cut on a downwards angle.


Balanced ChainsawBalanced Design
Look for a chainsaw with a balanced body design. The most balanced style features a long, narrow body layout with the engine situated inline.

This is an important feature for folks who use their chainsaws for extended periods of time. The balanced body is easier to hold evenly, even after an hour of cutting.


Commercial Warranty
Professional ChainsawProfessional chainsaws are sold with two-year, commercial-use warranties. This is especially important when you're regularly using your chainsaw for several hours at a time.

Two-year professional warranties on power equipment are not easy to find, considering the demands put on them by their owners and operators. This warranty provides peace of mind while using your chainsaw in extreme settings.
