POWER AND PERFORMANCE.

Ideal professional saw for logging and large removals. Lower weight and increased power offers an excellent power to weight ratio. It features our X-Torq® engine that provides high torque over a very wide rpm range, combined with low fuel consumption and low exhaust emission levels. AutoTune always gives optimal engine setting, Smart Start® provides easier starting and Air Injection makes the saw run longer between filter cleanings.

Features

  • AUTOTUNE: AutoTune gives optimal engine performance throughout automatic engine setting. No time spent on carburetor adjustments. It compensates for different fuels, altitude, humidity, temperature and clogged air filter.
  • AIR INJECTION: Centrifugal air cleaning system removes larger dust and debris particles before reaching the air filter. This results in reduced air filter cleanings and improved engine life.
  • X-TORQ®: Delivers lower fuel consumption and reduced exhaust emission levels in accordance with the world´s most stringent environmental regulations.
  • ADJUSTABLE OIL PUMP: Allows you to control oil flow depending on application and weather conditions.
  • QUICK-RELEASE AIR FILTER: Facilitates cleaning and replacement of the air filter.
  • COMBINED CHOKE / STOP CONTROL: Allows for easier starting and reduces the risk of engine flooding.
  • HEAVY-DUTY AIR FILTER: This easily accessible filter is designed to handle the high volume of airflow specific to a large professional saw.
  • OPTIMIZED SAW BODY: No protruding parts, a smooth underside, rounded starter cover and well-protected controls all make the saw easy to handle.
  • IMPROVED HANDLE DESIGN: The rear handle is asymmetrically designed with comfort inserts for a more stable and less tiring grip.
  • SIDE-MOUNTED CHAIN TENSIONER: Easier access to chain tensioning device.
  • MAGNESIUM CRANKCASE: Sturdily built crankcase withstands high rpms and tough professional use, ensuring a long service life.
  • SNAP-LOCK CYLINDER COVER: Saves time when changing spark plugs and cleaning.
  • THREE-PIECE CRANKSHAFT: Forged three-piece crankshaft for maximum durability for the toughest applications.
  • LOWVIB®: System designed to reduce vibration levels to the operator, which lessens fatigue.
  • SMART START®: The engine and starter have been designed so the machine starts quickly with minimum effort.
  • FRONT HANDLE ERGONOMICS: Better grip and a 7° offset handle reduces fatigue.
  • FELLING MARKS: Distinct, colored marks used for aiming the direction of timber fall.
  • INERTIA ACTIVATED CHAIN BRAKE: Reduces the likelihood of injury due to kickback.
