Buying guide clearing saws

The clearing saw is used to clear forests, bushes and undergrowth. A clearing saw has a shorter shaft for better manoeuvrability in dense stands. The acute angle of the bevel gear facilitates directional felling. A thumb-operated throttle also helps clearing work. Jonsered saws are available in several different designs, each optimised for professional forestry workers or other regular professional use.

Some tips before buying

  • Choose a machine with an effective anti-vibration system that allows you to work longer
  • Choose a lightweight machine, especially if you work full time
  • Your clearing saw should be high powered and have a high torque and rapid acceleration for maximum efficiency
  • Your machine should have an ergonomic harness for the best relief, comfort and efficiency
  • The handlebar should be angled relative to the shaft, to prevent an uneven load being placed on your back.
  • The handlebar can be angled and folded down, for easier transport and storage.
  • If you plan to work in cold climates, choose a clearing saw with heated handles
