About The Company

While reviewing a particular brand it is essential to investigate the whereabouts of the company. It helps put in perspective their priorities and their product orientation better. 

As hinted before Jonsered was responsible for designing the first-ever man chainsaw in 1954 which disrupted the whole landscape of the chainsaws industry.

Making the lives of lumberjacks much better. Sweden supposedly the founding place is covered with 75% forest which explains it all. Initially an independent company there were eventually acquired by Electrolux, also the parent company of Husqvarna at the time. Later on, separated and Husqvarna took over the production of Jonsered chainsaws.

To Sum up:

Best Jonsered Chainsaws

It’s not an easy task to pick the best of anything and it cannot be absolutely right. Owing to our subjective nature of ours and a variety of peculiar needs that we all have. But judging based on the performance and reliability of these machines, the following chainsaws on this enlist are quite similar with just some subtle power improvements and changes. 

For someone who longs for more power or engages in heavyweight, cutting can slide with 2250. If it’s not all about power then the other 2 also make quite good options that are slightly cheaper but less powerful. But at the end of the day, they will get the job done.
