ECHO® has announced the addition of the new DCS-2500T battery top handle chainsaw to their range for arborists.
ECHO® has been making high quality chainsaws for professional users since 1963, their latest addition to the range is the DCS-2500T battery top handle chainsaw, part of ECHO’s 50.4V professional battery range.
Designed for professional climbers the DCS-2500T has a dry weight of just 1.6kg*. When fitted with equivalent guide bars, batteries, chain, and oil the DCS-2500T is a full 1.1kg lighter than its nearest competitor. The light weight and excellent balance of the DCS-2500T can be deceptive though, as power output is among the best in class at 900W and the unit put out an impressive 10,000 RPM with a chain speed of 17m/sec.
Cutting performance and throttle response has been calibrated to be very similar to ECHO’s own 25cc petrol chainsaws, which means the feeling in the hand, and trigger response will be very comfortable and familiar to current users of petrol top handle chainsaws.
Professional features include a diagonal side handle for user comfort, textured non-slip top handle, thumb rest to prevent accidental bumping of the power button, an internal air filter to prevent dust ingress to the motor. And for climbers there’s top mounted oil adjustment, drop prevention captive bar nut, drop prevention lanyard hook and the quick draw harness ring for one-handed retrieval.
3/8″ Laminated or ¼” solid carving bar versions are available, depending on which version you choose the 2Ah battery will give between 17 and 20 minutes of cutting time.
Built to the highest standards for year round commercial use, the DCS-2500T is backed by ECHO’s industry leading five-year domestic, and two-year commercial warranty, as well as a two-year warranty on the lithium-Ion battery.
The DCS-2500T Chainsaw skin starts at $679 RRP plus battery and charger and is available from select ECHO dealers nationwide.
*without battery, oil and cutting equipment.
