ECHO has launched the CS-621SX heavy-duty rear-handle chainsaw.

Built for arborists and landscaping professionals who use this type of saw daily for felling large trees, the new saw is a reduced-emissions version of the manufacturer’s best-selling CS-620SX.

The CS-621SX features a new 59.8 cc low-emission, professional-grade two-stroke ECHO engine, designed and manufactured in Japan. It is the latest chainsaw in the ECHO X-series of ‘Best in Class’ products, which aim to be industry-leading in terms of power and performance. The saw weighs 6.3kg (dry weight). Its balance and ergonomic design are said to offer manoeuvrability and precision, with dual bumper spikes enabling better control when sawing through stumps and thicker branches.

The CS-621SX features a decompression button for easy starting, a side-access chain tensioner and drop-prevention nuts which can’t be lost during maintenance. A rotating plastic chain catcher is designed to help protect the user from potential injury while also preventing chain damage. The heavy-duty aluminium handle has a secure rubber grip and reduces vibration in the hand. Fuel and oil caps are made larger for easier filling and the fuel tank is translucent to show the fuel level. The ‘G-FORCE’ air cleaner system features a large air filter to keep out debris.
