The 13.5m/s cutting-speed developed by the Einhell GH-EC 2040 Electric Chainsaw makes it a class leader.With its unrivalled cutting-capability, this high-performance saw is perfect for inexperienced users and is the ideal alternative to noisy and troublesome petrol models.Easy to start and simple to use, the Einhell GH-EC 2040 offers a practical, low-cost way of sawing-up firewood and undertaking pruning, limbing and general DIY tasks. The quick chain-tensioner on the side of the saw enables you to maintain peak cutting-performance at all times by eliminating the need to use tools to tighten the chain. You simply turn a dial and away you go! The high-powered 2000w motor requires zero maintenance and doesn’t produce any emissions.

Kick-back protection is provided by a mechanical quick-stop chain-brake which brings the chain to a halt in less than 0.1 seconds. The high-quality chromium chain by Oregon is fitted with safety chipping-teeth to help reduce the risk of kickback; and sturdy stop-claws made of metal have been fitted to improve stability while sawing.This model is also fitted with cable strain relief for added safety when working; and has been equipped with a guard that protects the hand in the event of the chain snapping.Convenience features on the Einhell GH-EC 2040 include automatic chain-lubrication, which ensures peak-performance at all times; and a gauge-glass on the chain-oil tank, which allows you to check the oil-level at a glance.The lengthy guide bar on this chainsaw measures a substantial 40cm, thereby facilitating the cutting of larger-sized branches and tree trunks. It comes fitted with an integrated guide-sprocket, which reduces friction and works to improve performance. A protection case is also provided for when the machine is in storage.All controls on the Einhell GH-EC 2040 have been ergonomically engineered for comfortable operation; and the lightweight design and optimised centre-of-gravity reduce operator fatigue. Comfort-grip handles provide added operator comfort and give you greater control.
