One of the most amazing lightweight yet hyperpowered chainsaws on the market is Makita 5012b. Weighing in at about 9.5 pounds it carrying enough kick to rev up to about 5500 ft./m, it delivers the best of both worlds for people wanting power and convenience. Even the maintenance features on this unit scream ease-of-use and automation. For example, if the saw begins to lose its lubrication, a press of a button automatically restores the oil to let the unit can continue operation. The chain sheath accompanying the unit prevents the chainsaw for being accidentally unplugged, and even comes with a hook for extension cord usage.
Safety is a huge feature that is built into the Makita 5012b. When this saw overheats another circuit automatically kicks in and shuts the machine off. Stray woodchips are contained from flying all the place via the handy side guards in front of the unit. The unit cuts through woods so powerfully, however, that there will be a lot of chips strung about regardless, so get ready to clean up the saw dust. The quietness of the saw (compared to other chainsaws) is also a great relief to the human ear, though you probably still have to use some form of ear protection to handle the noise.
Reaching a maximum chain speed of 60 mph, the chainsaw operates at roughly twice the speed of other electrical saws on the market. Like most other Makita units the saw is ergonomic in design, and so conforms to the human body in being able to be handled easily and comfortably by an average person. Another convenience is the Makita 5012b from this point of view comes from the ability to simply start and stop the device -- the controls for turning on and off are simple and not cumbersome or tricky (no pulling strings, no filling the thing up with gasoline).
The simplicity is itself a safety feature, when one factors in the fact that most users of saws are residential consumers who were generalists in their knowledge of such appliances. The Makita 5012b allows do-it-yourselfers to avoid the hassles of learning complicated equipment, or maintaining and managing heavy units. Creating a lighter and more flexible saw reduces fatigue and aggravation factor for the average user, such that they can concentrate on the job at hand. Combined with the power of the electric saw him easily cutting through most wood surfaces, this speeds up the completion of jobs, lowering the time spent sawing which could lead to injury.
Finally, use of the Makita 5012b will likely save the operator of electrical costs because of the likelihood that the work will be done quickly. User-friendly operation leads to a smoother job and rapid completion time. The light pruning and related small jobs will go even faster for the same reason. Truly, the power and safety of this and other Makita chainsaws units show superiority of electrical-based machines in enabling a diverse range of woodcutting assignments to be done with ease and efficiency.
