Oregon CS250-E6 Cordless Chainsaw – 35cm Bar

  • Product Details

    Battery power has come a long way since the days when you needed eight massive ‘D’ batteries to run a slightly weedy boombox for an hour or two. Until fairly recently, for example, it would have been difficult to imagine a cordless electric chainsaw with anyway near the power required to compete with traditional petrol models. These days, however, we live in a glorious future world where machines with the clout of Oregon’s superb CS 250 Battery Chainsaw offer a combination of convenience and performance which makes comparable petrol saws seems almost as obsolete as the aforementioned boombox.

    With power delivered via a hi-tech 36V/2.4Ah lithium-ion battery and an efficient charger also supplied as standard (charge time approximately 120 minutes), the CS 250’s top chain speed of roughly 11.94m/s will allow you to tackle even tough cutting work with ease. Even better is that this impressive performance comes without the fumes, hassle and expense of running a petrol machine. Not relying upon fuel also means that the CS 250 will start up instantly even on the coldest mornings, saving valuable time and effort when you set to work. And with Oregon’s interchangeable battery packs you can even purchase a spare then switch between the two while one charges for uninterrupted cutting throughout the working day.

    Equipped as standard with a 35cm (14”) bar and a 3/8” low profile chain, the CS 250 is also notable for featuring Oregon’s innovative PowerSharp® technology. This integrated system helps to ensure exceptional cutting performance at all times by allowing you to sharpen the saw’s chain in seconds; simply pull and activate the PowerSharp® lever for 3-5 seconds and the cutters will be restored to optimal sharpness. Cutting through thicker branches or tougher hardwoods is thus made pleasingly effortless, while the need for additional tools or time-consuming manual sharpening procedures is also eliminated for peerless user convenience.

    At only 5.4kg with the bar and chain attached this saw is also very easy to handle, providing complete control when faced with tricky cutting jobs. Other user-friendly features include an automatic oil system which regulates chain lubrication for added reliability and a safety enhancing chain brake for vital protection against kickback, meaning that this is, all in all, a remarkably user-friendly piece of kit. Oregon’s CS 250 is thus one of the best in the business when it comes to providing low-noise, fume-free cutting performance.

    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.
