The Makita DCS3501 has been tested in extended trials conducted by amateur and professional chainsaw operators to test just how this easy start, compact chainsaw performs under "real-life" conditions, the outcome of the tests is unequivocal; the new DCS3501 compact saw exhibits ideal, well balanced handling characteristics, is easy to use and extremely user friendly on all counts. The test operators also found both the design and build quality outstanding with ease of maintenance and excellent starting.
The easy-start system on the DCS3501 has been developed, and uses spring pressure to help overcome the compression resistance. 3 or 4 pumps on the fuel primer fills the carburetor with fuel, and the combination switch is moved to its upper position for both half throttle & choke functions. The side mounted air intake has been designed to aid the feed of fresh clean air into the engine, keeping unwanted sawdust out.
The DCS3501 is fitted with a new safety feature; the "Touch & Stop System" a light dab on the combination switch is enough to stop the engine instantly in any situation, the switch will automatically return to the starting position.
The lightweight free revving & high torque engine is constructed from magnesium castings and features a vertical 6-port die cast cylinder. The built in damping system uses four heavy duty steel springs to absorb the vibrations that would otherwise be transmitted directly to the operator through the chainsaws handles, this system allows for longer sustained use with very low vibration levels felt by the operator. Please note; we PDI this machine, however the bar & chain is not fitted.
