Limbing; pruning; DIY projects; and smaller-scale felling can all be undertaken with the safe and easy-to-use MTD ECS1800/35 Electric Chainsaw. Its high-powered 1800w motor drives a top-quality bar and chain from the world’s leading chainsaw cutting-gear manufacturers Oregon, so you can be confident of an effortless cut and superior durability (the bar measures a compact 35cm). A powerful inertia-type chain-brake works to optimise operator-safety by ensuring the chain is stopped immediately should the saw ‘kick back’; while automatic chain-lubrication helps to keep things running smoothly and lessens wear-and-tear on the cutting-gear. The MTD ECS1800/35 features two-handed safety-switching, so you won’t have to worry about accidental start-up. It’s cased in a fibreglass-reinforced-plastic housing that brings lightweight durability; and it’s equipped with an oil-tank fill-level indicator that lessens the likelihood of running dry and damaging the bar and chain (the tank holds 0.2-litres). This model also benefits from a robust hand-guard that will protect the user should the chain slip off the bar.
