Corded electric chainsaws: the best of the rest

Our first choice corded electric chainsaw is the UC3530A Makita chainsaw.

The 15 amp, 14 inch Makita UC3530A scores highly because of its power, its quality of build and, bearing in mind those qualities, the value for money that it represents.

It is consistently rated as a top machine by those who use it (and I count myself amongst that number) and it currently averages 5 out of 5 stars in the Amazon user ratings.

Nevertheless, if you are looking for a corded electric chainsaw, the UC3530A may not fit with your particular needs.

You may want a cheaper machine, a longer bar, a shorter bar or just a different brand.

So, if that’s you, you’ve come to the right place, because here we list the 10 ‘best or the rest’ corded electric chainsaws.

These are all high standard machines in their own right and this selection gives you the full range from budget to commercial grade saws.
