Chainsaws should be an important consideration for any survivalist. On average, one tank of gas can cut a one truck load of wood. After a disaster, such as a hurricane, chainsaws can greatly speed up recovery time. When stock piling wood, chainsaws are the preferred way to harvest the wood. In a long term collapse of society, the chainsaws dependence on gasoline is its draw back.

For harvesting firewood, a chainsaw is the way to go.
