Oregon 4.0Ah Li-ion Battery (B600E)

  • Product Details

    A change is occurring in the world of professional horticulture. For a long time now battery-powered tools have largely been regarded as unsuitable for commercial landscape management work. But recent technological advances mean that this is no longer the case, so now even the most sceptical gardeners and contractors are starting to embrace the benefits afforded by cordless tools. If you don’t believe us, try using the B600E 36V/4.0Ah lithium-ion battery pack with any of Oregon’s cordless equipment and see how it compares to equivalent petrol tools.

    The B600E 36V/4.0Ah battery pack is compatible with all tools in Oregon’s cordless range, including the CS250 chainsaw, ST250 and ST275 grass trimmers, HT250 hedgetrimmer and the PS250 pole pruner. This means that the discerning professional can create a complete cordless system, enjoying the low-noise, fume-free performance whatever the job at hand. It also lasts three times longer than the old B500S battery pack, making it ideal for tackling heavy workloads: for example, when used with the CS250, the B600E will enable approximately 400 cuts of 2”-3” diameter wood on a single charge.

    In addition to this, Oregon’s B600E 36V/4.0Ah battery pack eliminates the time, effort and costs involved in refuelling and servicing petrol equipment, while the premium lithium-ion cell technology used in its design means it will hold a charge level of 90% for up to six months in storage (thereby ensuring that you can set straight to work as and when required).

    With the B600E 36V/4.0Ah lithium-ion battery pack, then, you can enjoy the convenience, comfort and economic benefits of a battery-powered tool without sacrificing on performance (requires use of either the C600 Battery Charger or C750 Rapid Battery Charger).

    About Oregon
    You perhaps wouldn’t have thought that the timber beetle, a creature whose larva buries deep into wood while it develops, would be an obvious candidate for having inspired a revolution in chainsaw technology, but the world is a surprising place sometimes. The logger and inventor Joseph Burford Cox was almost certainly surprised when, after several months of searching for a way to improve the chains used on early petrol powered chainsaws, he had an epiphany in the shape of the jaws of a grub.

    The story goes that Joseph was chopping firewood one chilly autumn day in 1946 when he became distracted by the sight of a timber beetle larva, roughly the size of a man’s forefinger, easily chewing its way through the tough wood of a tree stump. It occurred to Joseph that the larva's alternating C-shaped jaws could be the solution for which he had been looking and set to work in the basement workshop of his home in Portland, Oregon, eventually emerging with a ground-breaking new saw chain. The basic design of Joseph Cox’s chain is still evident today in modern chipper type chains, which is impressive given that it was inspired by a creature often considered a pest.

    Joseph didn’t stop there though, and he and his wife, Alice, founded The Oregon Saw Chain Co. in 1947. Over the decades that followed The Oregon Saw Chain Co. grew, grew and grew some more, eventually morphing from a small operation run out of the Cox household basement into a massive multinational corporation, especially under the guidance of John Gray, who purchased the company from Cox in 1953. The Oregon Co. is also notable for its pioneering research into reducing the hazards of bar-nose kickback during the 1960s and ‘70s. The technology developed by Oregon helped to vastly improve chainsaw safety and Oregon engineers were heavily involved in the years of work that finally, in 1985, resulted in the kickback-performance requirements found in the voluntary chain saw safety standard known as ANSI B175.1.

    Today, the Oregon brand continues to be an industry leader in more than a hundred countries around the world. With over sixty years of experience in the business and a continuing dedication to safety, ease of use and innovation, the company is now well known across the globe for the reliability and quality of its products. As such, it’s fair to say that the Oregon Co. has come a long way since its beginning with a man out in the woods watching a bug chew wood.
