Remington Electric Chainsaw

This electric chainsaw is great for any size limbs up to small trees if you are patient. It is not quite as scary as the bigboy gas powered ones. It can do quite a bit of work – at a fraction of the cost. Quite reliable and durable.  Make sure you pick up the bar and chain oil and try using plastic leaf scoops to preserve the blade.

With severe weather on the horizon, inspect your trees, especially near your house.  If the job is too big for you make sure to call around for the best price for tree removal.  They will give you an estimate, observations, and recommendations for free.  Their prices definitely vary.  Check the internet for reviews.  Most of them do other landscaping jobs – so keep them in mind!  Now that’s frugal!

If you love the Dyson ball technology, but do not want to spend that kind of money, consider the Shark Rocket Powerhead. It compares very favorably with thee Dyson.
