ECHO release the CS-4010EC

The new ECHO CS-4010EC, is a 41.6 cm³ / 1.9 kW chainsaw engineered for unparalleled ease of use and exceptional efficiency. Designed to simplify your cutting experience, this compact and versatile little saw redefines convenience in handling and operation. The EC in the name stands for "Electronic Control" and this is what sets it apart from the otherwise identical ECHO CS-4010.

Electronic Control

The CS-4010EC's Electronic Control isn’t just a feature; it’s a system that ensures your saw is always delivering at an optimal level. This is best demonstrated by the following 3 examples:

  1. Start Assist: Say goodbye to the choke. Starting the 4010EC is as effortless as it gets. Pump the primer bulb and pull the starter chord. That's it. Plus, the saw is also equipped with a momentary switch (kill switch), which means it's always "on" and the switch is used only to cut the engine when your job's finished.
  2. Idle Assist: Maintains stable RPM during idle periods, ensuring consistent performance.
  3. Acceleration Assist: Provides enhanced acceleration by increasing fuel supply when required, meaning you won't get bogged down during difficult jobs.

Effortless Start-Up

Gone are the days of complex starting rituals. With the CS-4010EC, a simple pump of the bulb and a pull of the cord are all it takes to fire up its engine. Thanks to Electronic Control, the engine warms up faster than conventional engines, optimizing RPM for superior performance and cutting, especially in cold conditions.

Unmatched Versatility

From pruning to bucking to firewood, this chainsaw excels at a range of tasks with unmatched versatility. The EC technology guarantees swift transitions from idle to full power, allowing you to dive into your projects without delays or concerns.
