Chainsaws – How To Choose The Right One For You

Chainsaws – How To Choose The Right One For You

At Gammies, we predominantly sell two brands of chainsaws: Stihl and Husqvarna. Both high-quality and professional-grade brands Stihl and Husqvarna cater to all customers, whether the tools are for professional or personal use.

Here are the advantages of both to help you decide:


Founded in Sweden in the 1690s, Husqvarna is the world’s largest and oldest manufacturer of power tools. Named after the Swedish town the business originates from, Husqvarna has been manufacturing quality chainsaws since 1959.

  • Larger fuel tanks allow for longer operating times.
  • The X-TORQ technology makes these saws more fuel-efficient, with lower exhaust emissions.

Founded in Stuttgart in 1926, Stihl is a German power tool company. Headquartered in Waiblingen, Baden-Württemberg, near Stuttgart, Germany. The company employs more than 2,100 people in the U.S. alone. Stihl manufactured its first one-man chainsaw in the 1950s.

  • Low-end torque makes it a better choice for tough cutting.
  • A smaller fuel tank reduces the weight of the saw, making for easier handling. However, this means reduced operating time per fill-up.

Regardless of brand, chainsaws require regular servicing and sharpening to ensure they last as long as possible. In doing so, costly repairs and replacements could be avoided. We offer both services as well as repair work at Gammies, all from our site in Forfar, Scotland. Not only do we pride ourselves on the high-quality workmanship we carry out, but we can also provide financial solutions to help with the cost.
