Makita DCS3501 and DCS4301

Two "compact class", easy-start chainsaws have been added to Makita's line-up to reflect the growth in ownership of saws in the 30cc to 45cc range.

Boasting features normally found on the more expensive professional chainsaws, the Makita DCS3501 (34.7cc with 35cm or 40cm bar) and DCS4301 (42.4cc with 35cm, 40cm or 45cm bar) have a single-switch choke, on/off safety control, ultra-low vibration rating and long service.

Makita's new easy-start system is designed so that, when the engine flywheel is at standstill, the lightest pull load on the cord will activate the spring assistance and speed the crank through the compression stroke and ignition sequence into the combustion cycle.
