CHAINSAW manufacturer ECHO has introduced two new chainsaw models designed for easy starting.

The base model ECHO CS-3510AC is built for casual users and farmers looking for a reliable all-round saw to get through work quickly. The model features an auto choke with a solenoid valve at the carburettor, which controls the amount of fuel needed, depending on the engine’s temperature, for optimal performance. This does away with the need for a choke lever, and with an automated system controlling the fuel supply, there is no risk of carburettor flooding. The 34.4cc engine is manufactured in Japan to the highest standards for increased performance, with a light weight of just 3.8kg and compact design to help reduce operator fatigue.

The premium model CS-3510ES is equipped with the manufacturer's patented ES Start for easy starting every time. An anti-vibration system minimises vibration levels to give manoeuvrability, operator comfort and precision when cutting. There is a momentary switch for easy engine restarts, side-access chain tensioner for quick chain adjustment and an automatic clutch-drive oiler to lubricate the chain. A transparent fuel tank provides easy level checks and there is G-Force Engine Air Pre-Cleaner, to reduce engine exposure to dirt and debris, for less maintenance and longer life.

Both chainsaws come with a 2-year commercial or 5-year domestic warranty. Find out more at
