Dependency on wood
Since ages, we have been depending on wood for our everyday lives. During the stone-age, it was our ancestors who used to cut wood and use it cook meat and raw animals for meals. They also used wood to make weapons like spears and arrows to hunt animals so that they can have food for the night. There were a lot of hardships faced by them back them to cut a tree and then cut the trunk to use the pieces of it to burn them and cook. But, as we gradually move towards the ultra-modern age, everything is being dependent on the machines.
In the same context, we are still highly dependent on wood to make paper, furniture, etc. but the only thing that is changed is we are using machine log splitters and electrical chainsaws to cut the trees. There are many advantages to using a machine log splitters and chainsaws apart from easing the human effort. Let us look at a few best wood cutting machine log splitters or chainsaws qualities that you should look for while buying one for your own use.
The log splitter has a cast-iron wedge which has an efficiency of cutting the log into firewood in mere 15 seconds. This reduces the human effort by massive 300%. Earlier, it took 3-4 hours by using a manual wedge to convert the huge log into firewood. And now we have that machine, it just takes 15 seconds.
Kinds of chainsaws and Log splitters
There are many different types of log splitters and chainsaws available in the market. If you are buying it for your personal use, you may go for the one which has comparatively lesser speed and energy to prevent damage to the human body also.
Higher the speed and weight, higher is the risk of getting hurt. There are ones which can be used domestically to cut the trees in the backyard and store the logs for the winter and the other one is the commercial one that is used to cut the trees and convert them to logs and smaller pieces of logs to be supplied across states into the factories to make furniture and to be used in the paper mills.
Chainsaws are basically required before using the log splitters. The traditional way of cutting the tree included the use of an axe to cut the trunk of the tree and then cut the trunk into pieces. But now, chainsaw does that for us. Chainsaw is basically connected to an electrical source and is used on the trunk to cut the tree.
Chainsaws are available in different sized and in different metals used to make them. The ones that are used in the commercial fields are heavy duty made with a little lower quality of iron where as the ones that are used for the domestic purpose have a high quality of iron and are lighter in weight. Yes, they have a little less efficiency than the commercial ones but are affordable.
