ECHO has developed a rear-handle version of its CS-2511TES top-handle chainsaw.

The CS-2511WES is part of ECHO’s X Series range. A spokesperson said: “These ‘best in class’ products are industry-leading in terms of performance and features. They are designed for professionals who rely on their tools day-in, day-out. This is where the chainsaw excels.

“Every ECHO product is designed around the needs of the end user. The CS-2511WES is no exception.”

Weighing 2.6 kg (dry weight) and producing 1.10 kW of power, ECHO says it has the best power-to-weight ratio in its class. This makes it both highly manoeuvrable and usable for long periods without fatigue. It is ideal for trimming, pruning, small logging and wood carving.

It features a palm rest for precise control, a tool-less air filter cover to allow easy access to the air filter, even when wearing gloves, and tool-less access to fuel and oil tanks. There’s a side access chain tensioner for easy chain adjustment and an anti-icing system to prevent the carburettor from freezing in colder months.

Easy Start, ECHO’s patented system, ensures effortless starting, while the oiler adjustment on the top of the chainsaw gives the operator control of the oil flow for optimum operation.

Designed and manufactured in Japan, the CS-2511WES is powered by a 25 cc professional-grade, Stage 2 low emissions compliant ECHO engine. It comes with a 0.050” gauge, 30 cm (12”) cutting bar. For carvers, the CS-2511WESC has a 0.043” gauge, 25 cm (10”) carving bar and chain. Both chainsaws come with a two-year professional or five-year domestic warranty.
