Chainsaw

The Chainsaw is a somewhat rare harvesting tool which is an upgrade to the Hatchet and Salvaged Axe. It requires fuel to use, holding up to 50 at once, and must be revved up before it can be used. The chainsaw quickly cuts through trees, even if it doesn't hit the weak spot, and is very useful for gathering large amounts of wood quickly. The chainsaw can also be used as a melee weapon or for cutting through constructions, but beware that it loses durability very fast when doing these tasks.

Once the chainsaw is started, you can press r to refill it at any time. You do not need to empty it. As long as it doesn't completely empty, you can refill it instantly whilst still being able to saw.

great to use if you live in a forrest, breaks quickly if used on a wooden wall

When pressing R to refill the chainsaw, you can switch out and back to the chainsaw as soon as the fuel goes in (indicated by the number on the icon in your hotbar). This cancels the refueling animation while still refuelling the chainsaw.
