Kendal Tools & Machinery is a leading supplier of garden power tools and brings you only the best log saws on the market – including the very competitive HS410 and the heavy-duty Scheppach range. So, if you’re looking to buy a log saw, be sure to take a closer look at our collection below.

As their name suggests, log saws are garden power tools – designed to specifically cut wooden logs. They are guaranteed to take the strain and effort out of cutting logs and firewood by hand using a bow saw (the oldest way of cutting logs!).

A log saw to suit every need

Have you recently felled a tree? Perhaps you’ve had logs delivered to your door for your wood-burning stove or open fire? The chances are, you will need to cut these to the right size to ensure they fit neatly in to your wood burner – and a log saw can do just that!

There are a plethora of log saws for sale which means you should have no problem finding something suitable for your project. Though they all look very similar and operate in much the same way, they fall into two separate categories based on the machine’s power source:

  • Electric log saws
  • Petrol-powered log saws

The good news is, Kendal Tools can guide and advise you on which suits your needs best.

The electric log saw is intended for personal use – so, perfect for small-scale projects and occasional jobs. Easy to operate, lightweight and quiet, you can make use of it to prepare logs for the winter, making sure they fit on your open fire, to keep you toasty and warm. Or for breaking them down into smaller pieces, ready for removal. Whilst an electric log saw is a great choice for DIY jobs and allows you to work safely at a comfortable height, we appreciate that it’s not the most suitable solution for heavy-duty applications.

If you’re a trade professional and will use your log saw frequently, a petrol-powered version is ideal. Reserved for professional use, this type of log saw is just as easy to use as the electric models but heavier and noisier. The best thing about the petrol-powered log saw is that it can be used just about anywhere – without a mains connection.

Whether you require an electric log saw or a heavy-duty petrol engine log saw, like the HS720B 12.2hp 4 stroke saw, we are confident that you’ll find what you need, here at Kendal Tools.

Are log saws easy to use?

Yes – cutting wooden logs is easier than ever with a log saw. In the past, a bow saw would be used to cut logs for a wood stove or open fireplace, as well as tree pruning and garden cutting. Using a bow saw certainly strengthens your hand, arm and shoulder muscles – but a log saw will require a lot less energy, allowing you to cut timber pieces down to the right length quickly and efficiently. Most log saws come complete with an adjustable length stop that makes it simpler for you to achieve the exact size required. Others include various cutting heights to accommodate logs of different sizes and thicknesses. If you’d like to know more about operating a log saw safely and correctly, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team at Kendal Tools.

How do log saws work?

Although there are different types on the market, they all work in more or less the same way. Log saws have an electric motor or petrol engine that drives a circular saw blade to cut logs down to size for firewood. Wooden logs and timber sections are placed onto a cradle that is equipped with an adjustable stop, allowing you to alter their length accordingly. Some of the more powerful petrol-powered models are equipped with a swivel cradle which feeds the wood into the cutting mechanism. Log saws are attached to a frame for maximum stability, and wheels are fitted to allow you to move the saw around your workshop with ease.

Which log saw should I choose?

Knowing which log saw is best for your requirements can be tricky – but the team here at Kendal Tools is always on hand to guide and advise you in making an informed decision. Simple to operate, lightweight and quiet, our electric log saws are often the go-to choice for small-scale DIY projects. Petrol-powered log saws are tailored more towards the heavy-duty needs of professionals who need to cut timber logs frequently. They’re just as easy to use as their electric counterparts but tend to be heavier and noisier. Unlike electric log saws, petrol models don’t require an electrical socket. This means they can be set up and used anywhere without a mains connection, making it a whole lot more convenient for you. If you’re unsure which log saw is right for you, or you have a question about the models currently in stock at Kendal Tools, we encourage you to contact our team – either by calling 01539 733 774 or emailing
