A Chainsaw[1] (also called a Buzz Saw[2]) is a mechanical saw that travels on wires in Super Mario World. Mario can perform a Spin Jump or stomp it while on Yoshi to rebound on these objects. They appear in most of the levels that have wires with platforms traveling across them. A large number of them can be found in Cheese Bridge Area.

In the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack in Minecraft, Stonecutters are replaced by Chainsaws.
