Echo introduces new chain saws with tool-less chain tensioning
The latest additions to Echo’s chain saw lineup are the CS-370F and CS-400F. Both of these saws are based on the CS-370 and CS-400, but feature the new FasTension tool-less chain tensioning system.
The FasTension system makes quick and easy chain tension adjustments or bar and chain replacements without a scrench or tightening tool. A rotating lever takes the place of locking nuts, and a tensioning wheel replaces an adjustment screw. Adjustments can be made anywhere in 4 simple steps.
The CS-370F is equipped with a 16-inch bar and chain, and the CS-400F comes with an 18-inch bar and chain. Other product features include a tool-less access, automotive-style air filter; a dual-post chain brake; an i-30 starting system for reduced starting effort; and an automatic, adjustable oiler.
An aftermarket accessory is also available to retro-fit the FasTension tool-less chain tensioning system on any CS-370 or CS-400.
As with all Echo chain saws, the CS-370F and CS-400F are covered by a 1-year commercial warranty and 5-year consumer warranty.
