- EGO launches its first Top-handle Chainsaw, delivering petrol-beating performance for arborists
- An uncompromising and unbeatable combination of power, torque and chain speed
- Long run times allow up to 186 cuts on a single charge
Boasting an uncompromising and unbeatable combination of power, torque and chain speed, EGO, the specialists in battery-powered outdoor equipment, has launched its first ever Top-handle Chainsaw, to meet the needs of professional arborists.
Promising best in class performance while further enhancing the company’s Professional range, EGO’s new chainsaw features a 30cm blade, together with a 20m/s chain speed, and has been designed from the ground up with professional users in mind.
The tool itself makes light work of everyday tree care tasks; all while being driven by EGO’s new lightweight, reduced profile 4Ah battery which is able to deliver 186 cuts on a single charge.
To improve usability, the chainsaw’s battery is mounted on the accompanying holster, rather than on the tool itself. Taking weight off the tool, this improves ergonomics and optimises its power-to-weight ratio for reliable and safe performance, all without the need for any additional cords, with the power cable intelligently integrated directly into the safety strop.
While its lightweight and ergonomic design improves safety when working at height, a unique chain-brake system combines mechanical and electronic technology to reduce risk of injury in the event of kickback.
Ensuring the first ever Top-handle Chainsaw from EGO meets the demands of professionals, the support of expert arborists was enlisted during its development and testing. As a result, users can be sure of the tool’s ability to perform in the most demanding environments, while features such as indicators for battery and oil levels alert users when a re-charge or top-up is required.
Powered by EGO’s Arc Lithium 56V battery technology, the 4Ah battery provides optimum performance, while the tool’s brushless motor is quiet, smooth and free of emissions. With a fast charger (included with the kit), operators can rely on equipment being ready when they are.
The first Top-handle Chainsaw from EGO is available as a bare tool (RRP £429) and as a kit, complete with 4Ah battery and fast charger, (RRP £599). For more information, visit www.egopowerplus.co.uk
