Hello everyone. Thank-you for visiting our chainsaw site, or as we like to call it: Chainsaw Journal. It feels fantastic to finally have Chainsaw Journal up and running. It’s taken a lot of time and effort to make this happen but I’m so happy to be writing this post.
The whole purpose of this site is to provide information to people looking to purchase a chainsaw for whatever your wood cutting needs require. Whether you’re new to chainsaws or already have some experience, I’m confident you’ll find useful information on this site. I know it can be challenging to find the information you need when you’re in the market to buy a chainsaw.
There’s so much information out there and for a beginner it can be overwhelming. If you’re new to the world of chainsaws and are looking to buy I highly recommend that you start with our Chainsaw Buying Guide.

As you probably already know, chainsaws are extremely dangerous. In fact, it’s the most dangerous home power tool on the market so it’s essential to understand the safety procedures that go along with owning and using a chainsaw. I can’t stress enough the importance of chainsaw safety, and I suggest you visit our Chainsaw Safety Tips page to learn more, and educate yourself so you don’t become a statistic.
