Tanaka TCS33EDTP/12
Pros Small but powerful, this model stands out for its maneuverability and ease-of-use. A portable machine that makes trimming, pruning, and lopping a breeze.
Cons Because it has a smaller bar, this chainsaw is not recommended for large jobs or tree felling.
Summary A great choice for users who want a small chainsaw with a lot of power at a middle-of-the-road price; but we recommend other models we tested for big jobs.
