Echo Introduces New Chain Saws with Tool-less Chain Tensioning

12/7/2013

The latest additions to Echo's chain saw lineup 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-inch bar and chain, and the CS-400F comes with an 18-inch bar and chain. Other product features include an automotive-style air filter that is accessible without tools; a dual-post chain brake; an i-30 starting system for reduced-effort starting; and an automatic, adjustable oiler.

An aftermarket accessory is also available to retrofit the FasTension Tool-less Chain Tensioning System on any CS-370 or CS-400.
