Characterised by its superior European build-quality, top-rated features and excellent handling, this high-performance petrol chainsaw from trusted Italian manufacturers Oleo-Mac is aimed at discerning home-users looking to carry-out a range of tasks around the garden, including lopping, pruning, small-tree felling and preparing firewood for the wood burner or hearth.
Fuel-efficient and clean-running, the engine that drives this powerful tool is a large-displacement 39cc air-cooled two-stroke unit that develops a hefty 1.8hp; and which blends a two-ring piston with a die-cast nickel cylinder and a forged-steel crank/connector-rod to ensure it excels when it comes to long-term reliability.
Starting is made fast and reliable - from hot or cold - thanks to Oleo-Mac's provision of a fuel-primer and an electronically-controlled digital coil.
The lightweight and rust-resistant aluminium oil-pump on the Oleo-Mac GS-411 is automatic and continuously delivers the correct flow of oil in order to keep things running smoothly at all times (oil-flow is cut at idle to avoid mess and waste).
The Oleo-Mac GS-411 Pro Petrol Chainsaw has a mid-sized 40cm guide-bar that makes it ideal for tackling small- to medium-diameter branches and logs.
Tool-free component-access makes in-the-field maintenance a breeze; while an ergonomically-optimised handle incorporating all the main functions guarantees comfortable, controlled operation.
Further enhancing user-comfort is the isolation of the engine from the chainsaw-body - this is achieved by the employment of three spring-dampers and three rubber-stops that cushion juddering and massively reduce the effect of vibration on the user's body.
This model's impressively lightweight design (just 4.2kg) combines with its perfect centre-of-gravity to ensure it remains easy to wield for the duration of the task.
An inertia-type chain-brake is featured in order to protect the operator from 'kick-back'. It can also be engaged to allow position-changing with the chain stopped and the engine still running.
