I have a supply of wood offcuts that I need to cut up for the woodburner.
The offcuts can be virtually anything from "proper" logs to scaffolding timber, skip timber, shuttering ply etc. Its often got nails and other fastenings in it.
Up to now I have used a reciprocating saw, but this is too slow. It took me all day to cut up the last pile and by the end both my hands were numb from vibration.
I thought a chainsaw might be appropriate - but I have never used one and I am worried what happens if one hits a fastening when cutting? At least with the recip saw one just knackers the blade.
Can anyone recommend a decent model without spending a fortune?
TIA - Adam
