Perfectly balanced handling combined with rugged build-quality and a top-handle-type configuration make the Italian-engineered Oleo-Mac GS-260 a great choice for the professional arborist.
It comes driven by a powerful 25.4cc two-stroke air-cooled engine that produces a substantial 1.2hp; and which employs Oleo-Mac’s EasyOn technology for a smooth pick-up with no danger of ‘kick back’.
No-tools filter-cover removal makes day-to-day maintenance that much easier; while a roomy 0.23-litre fuel-tank serves to reduce time lost due to refuelling-stops.
The Oleo-Mac GS-260 Top-Handle Petrol Chainsaw’s compact design, optimised centre-of-gravity and ultra-lightweight build (2.8kg) all work to make it highly manoeuvrable, and therefore ideal for space-restricted in-tree work.
It incorporates a lateral chain-tensioner that makes it quick and simple to adjust the chain if you’re in an awkward operation position; and it’s fitted with a belt-hook for safe climbing into tree canopies.
So as to ensure varying wood-types, oils and weather-conditions can be managed, the GS-260 has been equipped with a fully adjustable chain-lubrication system.
Also important is the cushioned handle that minimises vibration-transfer to the user’s arms and hands.
