A very meaty 51cc petrol engine gives all its power to this multi featured and great quality chainsaw, producing a chain speed of 18.1 m/s and 2kw of power for efficient and clean cutting of logs for firewood or to prune, trim and lop smaller branches from trees as part of your garden maintenance.
A 2-stroke engine, such as the one featured on this model, requires a good mix of 2-stroke oil and fuel and a transparent and easily viewable tank lets you see that your levels are correct and kept topped up. The fuel tank takes 0.3L of fuel, so you do not have to spend all your time filling up.
The longer chain bar of 45cm enables you to cut logs up to 90cm in diameter and safety is assured as the operator is protected by both a sturdy and good sized front hand guard and an inertia activated fast-acting chain brake which will protect against possible kickback.
Any good chainsaw user will tell you that keeping your guide bar and chain properly lubricated is a very important regular maintenance task, so Ryobi have included automatic bar and chain lubrication to make things easier.
Comfort and convenience are also important when cutting wood and chainsaws can cause discomfort through excessive vibration. This model, which is also on the quieter side of chainsaws, has a 3-point anti-vibration isolation system to enable operators to work for longer in comfort. Handles are also well designed and comfortable.
The weight of the chainsaw, at 5.4kg, means it is easy to handle and manipulate and the balance is good, with weight distribution enhancing user comfort.
