I’m Drew, founder of chainsawstore.net and I’d like to say thank you for dropping by.

Like most consumers I always look at reviews before buying something even more so if the product is worth more than a hundred dollars, I’m pretty sure you’d do the same thing too. It always helps in making a wise decision, especially when buying an expensive item.

How can this site help me find the right chainsaw?

There are a number of sites out there that curate reviews from shopping sites as well as from bloggers and technology sites then present it to the consumer in an easy-to-digest form so that they don’t waste time reading hundreds of pages worth of reviews on different sites.

ConsumerSearch and TheSweetHome are two of the top dogs out there but they don’t focus on one product niche but as you’ll notice they write reviews on a broad range of products and even services.

What makes this website different from the two above is that it is strictly about chainsaws and I’ll try to feature every chainsaw found in the market here – from electric to gas to pole chainsaws.

How did you come up with your top lists?

Everything here is based on consumer reviews, nothing is made up nor sugar coated. If a product gets rave reviews, I say it. If it’s not a good product then it also reflects in the write-up.

My ranking is based on the combination of factors – usability, build quality, battery life, warranty, consumer rating, customer servic, and price.

How’s the selection process?

First step is going to Amazon to gather the top rated products then narrow it down according to popularity and average rating. The product has to have at least 20 reviews (combined) to meet the criteria of course the more reviews the better.

After narrowing down a list of 5 to 10, I scour the net for video and individual blog reviews from bloggers. The list is narrowed down further to the top 5 or so and is based on the factors I mentioned above. I also look at feedback from other shopping sites to gather more consumer data on how the product performed.

I then write down individual product reviews so I can carefully dissect the strengths and weaknesses of each chainsaw and from there make a decision on the top ones.

Why Amazon?

Everybody knows that Amazon is the top online retail store that offers the best deals, sometimes even better than the manufacturers. And if something goes wrong with the product, they also have one of the best customer care policies on the web so it is a no-brainer.

How do you know if the reviews are credible?

For both positive and negative I look for detailed reviews from verified buyers that highlight both the strengths and weaknesses of the product in a way that is helpful to a potential buyer.

Also, I look for people that have experience in leaving concise reviews that explain in detail what they liked and disliked in a product. I usually ignore the short one-liner reviews (e.g. this is the best or this is crap…) that don’t add real value to the discussion.

Why do all this work for free?

My main goal is to help people out and if I do my job right and help in your decision to purchase a chainsaw through my site I get a commission through the Amazon associates program.
