Buying guide: clearing saws

Consider your needs first when you are buying a clearing saw. Here is our 7-tip guide to get the right machine for your working life.

The clearing saw is used to clear forests, bushes and undergrowth. A clearing saw has a shorter shaft for better maneuverability in dense stands.

7 tips before buying a clearing saw

1. Choose a machine with an effective anti-vibration system that allows you to work longer.

2. Choose a lightweight machine, especially if you work full time.

3. Your clearing saw should be high powered and have a high torque and rapid acceleration for maximum efficiency.
