How Much Does A Chainsaw Weigh?

The weight of a chainsaw is a concern for many people. A chainsaw that is too heavy for the user to handle poses an obvious threat to their safety. 

A chainsaw that is too light makes taking risks a much easier task. For example, a lighter chainsaw allows the saw to easily be used directly over the head or in unnatural positions that could lead to injury. Additionally, dangerous kick back is much more of any issue for light chainsaws in comparison to heavier ones. 

Let’s take a look at a selection of chainsaws and their weights. This should provide you with a general idea of the weight of a chainsaw.

However, weights vary significantly. You should visit the manufacturers website for specific weight information of a given chainsaw.
