Our Panasonic ES8243A Men’s 4-Blade Razor

Panasonic does it again with the Arc4 electric razor for Men. This is another best electric shaver that is under $100 and great for sensitive skin. New customer reviews have brought even more to consider. If you are looking for the convenience of an electric shaver as you get away from wet shaving, this might just be the one for you. Panasonic is know for powerful motors and the extra blade on this model really gives you some efficiency.

The Panasonic ES8243A is a four blade wet and dry rechargeable electric shaver that will give you the ultimate shaving experience no matter what kind of beard or skin you have. The Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 is one shaver on the market that promises to provide the closest, cleanest, smoothest shave through its combination of unique innovative features. I was enticed by some of these features – particularly by its innovative Nanotech four-blade design and ultra-powerful motor drive – so I decided to give it a try myself.

The glossy blue color of the razor is strikingly pleasing to the eye, with a contrasting orange readout on the digital LCD screen, making it easy to see the battery time left on the shaver. The digital display also shows how long each shave takes.

Compared to other shavers, the ES8243A is very light weight. It is also very comfortable to operate and the rubbery materials ensure a very secure grip. As far as aesthetics go, I can only be biased as I was always a fan of the futuristic, hammerhead-like design of Panasonic razors. This is no exception and it looks excellent in my opinion, although not as classy as top of the line Braun or Norelco shavers.

The Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Men’s Electric Shaver has a reliable Panasonic linear motor that runs at 13,000 rpm that will cut through the thickest of beards and hairs to get the job done. Standard electric razor motors usually run at around 8000 to 10,000 rpm, so you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how fast the Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 is.

According to customer reviews, the Panasonic ES8243A Electric Shaver is about as good as it gets. Over 66% of customers who chose to review this shaver on line awarded it the highest possible rating. While there are some negative ratings, the overwhelming majority of reviewers are extremely pleased with this shaver’s performance.

There are certainly a lot of reasons to purchase the Panasonic ES8243A, not least of which is its ability to provide a close, comfortable, and rapid shave. If there is a downside to this model, it would be that it does not have a travel lock switch or an automatic cleaning system, though by increasing the speed of the motor, it can automatically clean itself in a matter of seconds. It has an approximate 45 minute usage time, and takes only one hour to reach a full charge.

When I got the Arc4, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m a skeptic, so I was definitely wary about all the emphasis on the four blades, the extra power and all the other features packed into this razor that promised to deliver such a close, smooth shave. It won’t be the best razor you can buy but for the price, it is very reasonable. Especially if you tend to have a angular face then you will really like this foil shaver as it will give you a close shave.

STIHL Chainsaws Buying Guide And Tips

If you’ve been looking at different chainsaws, chances are pretty good you’ve come across brand names like Craftsman, Husqvarna, and STIHL. All good chains saws, and all aiming for different consumers. The Husqvarna line definitely targets the bigger industrial sized jobs, but they do also produce machines that work well for the average home owner casual chainsaw user.

The Craftsman chainsaws, are more for the casual user, or maybe as a backup saw. They also make a good alternative to lugging around a big saw, if you don’t want to drag your hefty STIHL or Husky off to the job site. Homelite also makes smaller chainsaws, that would be good for cutting firewood, and taking down smaller trees. Other manufacturers to consider are Jonsered, and Echo. Their not nearly as well known, but do fill a niche.

Husqvarna, and STIHL, do own the majority of the market however, with an estimated eighty percent of the market share. Husqvarna holds a slight lead over second place STIHL. If your in the business of farming, growing, or chopping down trees, than chances your going to go for the Swedish designed and built STIHL, or the German manufactured STIHL.

When buying from a chainsaw for sale it is a good idea to know as much about the saw before you buy it. Sometimes just knowing how to operate it is not enough. Here are some quick tips on storage and tree cutting to add to your knowledge base

A chainsaw has a chain that tightens as it cools down so it is a must that after using it, the chain must be loosened. Never store a used chainsaw with unloosened chain for it will destroy its crankshaft and bearings. If the chainsaw will be stored for a long time without using it, coat the bar and the chain with corrosion inhibiting oil. If you will not be using the chainsaw for a long time, you should make sure that the fuel tank is drained and dry. You can do this by running the engine until the carburetor is dry and you see the saw quits running. This will stop the carburetor from sticking. This will also help in the maintenance of the chainsaw. Keep it out of reach of children or any unauthorized persons and store it in a dry, high and locked place.

In buying a chainsaw from a chainsaw sale, you must also know how to use it not only in cutting wood but also on how to fell trees through it. There are two ways of felling trees using the chainsaw. It may be used through the standard or common notch or through the open face technique. Be sure that there is always a manual together with the product that you will buy. Sometimes if you get a used chainsaw from an non reputable source there will not be any documentation. Read and understand the manual properly because this will serve as your guide. Always use the manual because the techniques for felling are stated there. You will really save a lot if you buy a used but still good chainsaw. There are many top brands that that you can choose from: Husqvarna, Poulan, Stihl, Homelite McCulloch and others.

Protective clothing must be bought all along with saw and cutting trees with the chainsaw is hard on eyes & ears. Always make use of the protective glasses & earplugs and steel capped boots & non-slip gloves are recommended.
