If you’re looking for professional-style features in a chainsaw, but don’t want to pay professional-style prices, the safe and easy-handling MTD GCS4600/45 is worth serious consideration.
It comes equipped with a very high-performance 2.1hp (46cc) that incorporates an aluminium crankcase and cylinder for corrosion-resistance and lightweight durability; and which is fitted with a capacious 0.55-litre fuel-tank for fewer interruptions to the task-in-hand.
The bar and chain on the MTD GCS4600/45 Petrol Chainsaw are from market-leading cutting-gear manufacturers Oregon, so longevity and superb cutting-performance are assured.
Automatic chain-oiling ensures a constant feed of oil is delivered to the cutting-gear for a pleasingly smooth cut; while a quick-stop chain-brake works to prevent injury in the event of ‘kick back’ by halting the chain at the first sign of inertia.
So as to make routine in-the-field maintenance quick and simple, MTD have furnished this model with a convenient lateral chain-tensioner.
It combines a low-weight build (just 5.5kg) with effective vibration damping in order to facilitate the low-effort completion of lengthy sessions; and it’s fitted with a safety-enhancing hand-guard that protects the user should the chain become detached from the bar.
