Selecting The Right Cutting Tool According To Your Needs

Nov 16th 2015 at 4:04 AM

There are a large number of cutting tools available in the market, and when we see them, we get confused, which makes our decision making process difficult. The best solution is to compare two or three different cutting tools, and go with the one having better performance.


Here are a few important specifications that you can look into while purchasing a cutting tool. By using these guidelines, you can even get cutting tools online.

Cutting Capacity

There are different cutting requirements, from trees, branches, to small bushes and there are different tools for everything. One should clearly understand the requirements and choose the equipment accordingly. The tool you choose must comfortably cut the items that you most frequently cut.  The tools available for cutting are scissors, pruners, lopping shears, saws, trimmers, etc. All these tools have different applications. One should have clarity over the application of the tools and their requirements.

Type of Cutting

If you need to cut a thick tree, you would need a saw. If you need to trim the bushes, you would need a scissor. One needs to understand their requirements before looking for a tool. It is recommended to discuss it with someone having experience or do an online research based on the requirements before making a purchase. These tools are often heavy and come with a huge shipping charge, so once the item reaches your doorstep, it would be very difficult for you to send it back.

Models of Tools

There are two models of tools. They are categorized as Anvil and By-pass models. While the anvil models are good to cut down hard and dead wood, as it does not bend with pressure, the By-Pass models give a very sharp finish to the cut, as they are not hard and do not crush the wood. Choosing these models is also a very tricky task. One should consider a machine that favors the work that is to be done on most of the days.

User Comfort

The equipment you choose should be very comfortable to use, there are a large number of tools, which come with a specification about the built of the users like for people above the height of 5’10”. One should look for these specifications, if a short heighted person buys a machine made for tall people, he will face problems.

Added Features

Apart from basic features, one should also look for additional features that distinguish one machine from the others. Some manufacturers give features like tension knob that provide a great amount of comfort to the users. Some other features are Shock absorbing bumpers that reduce the arm and hand fatigue to a very large extent, making the life of the users much easier. There are ratchets in some devices, which change the cutting angle of the blades. It has a huge impact on the user efforts. A user is much comfortable after optimizing the blade angle according to requirement.

These are the features, which a user should look at while buying the cutting tools. The key to finding the right tools is to understand your requirements.
