ECHO’s CS-280TES Reaches New Heights

ECHO’s CS-280TES top handle chainsaw is built for professionals. It has been ergonomically designed to provide operators with control and manoeuvrability whilst maintaining a high degree of comfort – even when used in a difficult working environment.

Unlike other saws on the market, the CS-280TES features a unique ‘wrap-around’ handle which is sloped back towards the operator’s body. This design provides the operator with a higher-degree of control.

The weight of the saw has not been compromised to accommodate this new feature. It has near-perfect weight distribution which provides excellent balance and it is light enough to be used through-out the day without causing excessive fatigue for the operator.

It has a new stage-2 emission compliant 26.9cc engine. With an output of 1.04kW the CS-280TES is 20% more powerful than its predecessor (CS-260TES).

The chainsaw’s air filter is positioned away from dirt and debris. This provides better filtration and ultimately improves engine performance. Access to the filter is easy and tool-free, even when the operator is wearing gloves.

All ECHO power tools come with a two year warranty for professional use (registration of ECHO products and servicing are necessary to validate the warranty).

The ECHO CS-280TES top handle chainsaw is £340.83 (ex- VAT) and is available for trained operators only.

Blown Away by an ECHO Shred 'N' Vac®

In preparation for the arrival of autumn, ECHO sponsored gardening blog, ‘The Gardener’s Journal’
ran a free prize draw to win an ECHO ES-250ES Shred 'N' Vac®.

The lucky winner was Mrs Griffiths of Solihull, who contacted the ECHO team as soon as she received her prize. She said, “My husband is absolutely thrilled with the ECHO ES-250ES. His first comment on opening it was, ‘Excellent, it's a petrol power blower. This means no cables to get entangled. I'll be able to give our electric one away to my daughter and son-in-law now.’”

With leaves now starting to fall and debris being scattered by the winds, now is the perfect time to invest in the versatile ECHO Shred 'N' Vac®.

With this one machine, you can blow, vacuum and shred leaves. Fitted with a premium grade 2-stroke 25.4cc engine, it is more powerful than an electric blower.

The ES Easy Start system means the engine can be started quickly with minimum effort required from the operator. With the EZ lock™ feature, the blower pipe is securely locked to the machine, and is also simple to attach and disconnect.
