Chainsaw- A chainsaw is a portable mechanical saw that is used mainly for felling, limbing, and bucking. The chainsaw consists of four main parts, which include the engine, drive mechanism, guide bar, and cutting chain. Chainsaws have many uses in the agriculture, forestry, and farming industries, but are also widely used in roadwork operations. Cutting back overgrowth, removing fallen trees, and overhanging branches are some of the main uses of chainsaws in this field.
