Designed for intensive use, the Oleo-Mac GS-440 is built to withstand tough working conditions, and, with its expansive 40.5cm guide bar, powerful petrol engine and super-sharp chain, it's ready to tackle variety of commercial and larger-scale domestic woodcutting tasks, such as hedge- and coppice-maintenance, lopping branches and felling medium-sized trees.
Leading brand Oleo-Mac make chainsaws that standout from other machines in the same class, thanks to cutting-edge innovation and superior build-quality.
For example, the 42.9cc (2.8hp) two-stroke motor on the GS-440 is constructed to be long lasting, with its forged- and machined-steel shaft/connecting rod, needle bearings and wear resistant nickel-plated cylinder ensuring durability under the toughest of working conditions.
The engine is also highly fuel efficient, and emits far fewer polluting particles than other saws in its power bracket.
Starting is reliable, with an electronically controlled digital coil and variable ignition allowing for a reduced fuel-burning rate and headache-free ignition.
Operator comfort is well taken care of on the Oleo-Mac GS-440 Petrol Chainsaw, with many features designed to reduce fatigue, including the isolation of the engine for lower vibration transfer to the operator.
The oil-feed is both automatic and adjustable, allowing the operator to vary oil flow according to the workload and wood-type. The automatic setting ensures zero flow when idling to minimise mess and waste.
The ergonomic handle incorporates the on/off switch, choke and half-throttle lever, so control is straightforward. Balance and power-to-weight ratio are optimised, allowing for long periods of low-fatigue operation.
Keeping the chain at the right tension is a crucial element in maintenance - the lateral chain-tensioner on this model simplifies the process, and eliminates any risk of contact with the chain.
Safety is always a premium consideration in chainsaw design, and this model has a fast acting inertia-triggered chain brake, which reduces the danger of problems caused by kickback. The brake handle also acts as a front hand-guard, which protects the forward hand in the event of a chain derailment. It's worth mentioning that the operator should always be wearing safety gloves during use.
A special Ice Device system – whereby heated air from the cylinder can be taken-in to prevent ice forming on the carburettor – means this chainsaw can be used at sub-zero temperatures, while continuing to start and work reliably.
