Bigger battery, better balance The new EGO Power+ Top-Handle Arborist Chainsaw

by editor

We all know how important it is to trust your equipment, especially when you are 30 feet off the ground. It’s not an easy decision to switch brands when you have relied on the one tool for so long. However, every once in a while, you come across a product that rattles the cage of convention.

No longer do you have to choose between premium power and ultimate ergonomics. The all new EGO Power+Arborist Chainsaw combines the best of both worlds with its ground breaking belt-mounted battery system. Striking the perfect balance between industry leading battery power and a practical top-handle design, this chainsaw is the first of its kind. Here’s why.

Unique belt mounted battery
The biggest selling point for the EGO Arborist Chainsaw is that it’s the first tophandle chainsaw with a unique belt-mounted battery design. Instead of a regular onboard battery that is attached to the end of your tool, EGO has cleverly mounted their battery to a holster located on your lower back.

EGO has really thought of everything, with the integration of the safety rope and power cord to achieve an extremely compact design. This innovative ergonomic design means that even with a 56V battery you won’t have to compromise on comfort.

The belt-mounted battery system is a well thought out solution to bottom heavy electric top-handle chainsaws.

First class features
You will not miss out on any of the premium specs you are used to, sporting a high efficiency brushless motor and 30cm Oregon bar and chain. Additional features include a variable speed trigger with a lock-out lever, 20m/s chain speed, chain brake with a mechanical clutch and electronic sensor, automatic oiling system and an onboard LED low oil indicator, just to name a few.

The EGO Arborist Chainsaw can achieve up to 265 cuts with a 5.0Ah battery.This means more time cutting and less time recharging. Weighing in at 3.5kg, without the battery, the EGO still manages to accomplish one of the lightest and most comfortable experiences in hand, due to the belt-mounted battery design.

Innovative battery technology
Despite EGO’s lack of history in arboriculture, they certainly aren’t beginners when it comes to their battery powered professional equipment. EGO’s industry leading 56V ARC Lithium-Ion Battery delivers all the power of petrol without the noise fuss or fumes. Plus, with the convenience of universal battery compatibility, you can power every EGO product with just the one battery.

EGO has been able to achieve the ability to harness premium power while maintaining the all-important ergonomic design we have come to expect from a top-handle chainsaw.
