Greater Safety

  1. In the event of a fall or kickback, the electronically triggered sensor instantly engages the electric chain brake, eight times faster than on a petrol chainsaw.
  2. With the OREGON chain, the kickback effect, if it occurs, will be much less abrupt than on a conventional chainsaw.
  3. On first use, the self-diagnostic system checks that the electronic kickback sensor is working. If not, the chainsaw will not start.
  4. The double-press start-up trigger prevents accidental start-up of the chainsaw.
