One can purchase a chainsaw by visiting a home improvement supply website such as Lowes.com, a general retail site such as Amazon.com or a specialty tool website such as ChainsawDirect.com. Sites such as eBay.com and Craigstlist.org also allow individuals to purchase both used and new chainsaws.
Lowes.com features a comprehensive set of filtering tools that allows a user to sort available listings for chainsaws by several factors, including brand, price range, user rating and power type. Each listing includes a picture of the chainsaw, a description of its features written by the manufacturer and detailed customer ratings and reviews. Reviews consist of a satisfaction ranking for the chainsaw, along with a written account of the user's experience with the product.
Lowe's also offers its customers various delivery options, including standard freight shipping, Lowe's truck home delivery and in-store pickup. For the in-store pickup option, the user selects a nearby store, and if the store currently has that chainsaw in its inventory, reserves one for the customer to retrieve at her convenience.
Sites such as eBay.com and Craigslist.org do not feature product ratings, because each listing is unique to the seller. It is up to the buyer to inspect the quality of each chainsaw purchased through the sites.
