ECHO’s CS-2511TES top handle saw weighs in at 2.3kg (dry weight w/o bar and chain) making it the company’s lightest and most compact saw to date.

The company says the engine produces 1.10kW to give the saw a superior power-to-weight ratio. The saw fits easily into the hand with its ergonomic contoured handle and patented palm rest for greater control and comfort. The controls are positioned logically and are easy to use, while the attention to detail that includes a swing-out lanyard ring enhances balance and makes climbing easier. There are narrow louvres in the body to prevent ingress of pine needles and debris penetration into the engine compartment.

Wider tank openings enable easier oil and fuel filling and the oil adjuster is on top for easy access. The starter grip cord allows the operator to open the oil and fuel caps, even when wearing gloves, for easier maintenance. A dropout prevention nut is held on with a wire spring so it cannot be lost when the operator needs to maintain the chainsaw, even if they are at a great height.
