Horizontal double-axis chain saws are designed to cut through trees and logs with much more ease than the usual double or single band saws. They can also be used to cut through bricks, limestone, concrete, and drywall. Some saws even feature cutting blades that can cut through metal. These chainsaws generally have a single or double band saw blade with a cutting wheel at the front and a large cutting surface at the back.
The typical horizontal saw chain saws generally weigh between forty-five to one hundred and fifty pounds, depending on the model. They are made of either carbon steel or aluminum, with a metal blade fixed in the middle. These saws are capable of cutting through even the toughest solid materials, though the process tends to be less precise than when using the double or even single band saws. It is not uncommon to hear of homeowners building their own woodworking shop with these chainsaws.
In some cases, horizontal chain saws are also used in the construction industry as well. Horizontal saw chain saws have long been a mainstay piece of equipment in the lumber yards and construction industry because they are quite easy to use and they are generally very durable and strong. Many homeowners own a saw chain saw and use it for home projects because it is easy to use, relatively inexpensive, and fairly stable. Most homeowners who own saw chainsaws are satisfied with their purchase.
