The new line-up will feature tool-less chain tensioning.

| November 27, 2013

CHICAGO, Ill. – The latest additions to ECHO’s chainsaw line-up are the CS-370F and CS-400F. Both of these saws are based on the popular 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 four simple steps.

The CS-370F is equipped with a 16” bar and chain and the CS-400F comes with an 18” bar and chain. Other product features include a tool-less access, automotive-style air filter; a dual-post chain brake; an i-30starting system for reduced-effort starting; and an automatic, adjustable oiler.

An after-market 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 chainsaws, the CS-370F and CS-400F are covered by a one-year commercial warranty and five-year consumer warranty.

ECHO Incorporated is a leading manufacturer of professional-grade, high-performance outdoor power equipment for professional and residential use. The corporation markets its products under the brand names ECHO, Shindaiwa and ECHO Bear Cat.
