Makita has added an advanced, high power farming-class 35.2cc chainsaw to its expanding range of forestry and general timber work saws.

The new Makita EA3601F 2-stroke machine develops a strong 2.4hp and with a Stratified Air Scavenging combustion system has the cleanest possible exhaust emissions and very low fuel consumption.

  • 35.2cc 2-stroke now gives 2.4hp
  • 35cm bar length with tool-less tensioning
  • Low fuel consumption and clean emissions with SAS system

The centrifugal air cleaner enhances intake performance and reliability and the spring assisted recoil starter reduces cord pull. A primer pump makes hot or cold starting easy while an anti-icing valve bleeds warm air to the fuel lines to ensure winter reliability.

This new Makita chainsaw is well balanced and compact weighing just 4.2kg making the EA3601F comfortable and easy to handle and manoeuver in operation.  It is fitted with a 35cm long bar and 3/8th pitch, 0.050” gauge multi-link chain and has a 0.26L chain oil tank with automatic oiling.

Chain tension adjustment can be carried out swiftly with the tool-less system while the chain brake can be engaged manually and automatically on kickback. This saw has ultra-low vibrations thanks to the Makita M2M vibration dampening mountings that effectively separates the engine and drive system from the chassis and operator handles.  The EA3601F chainsaw comes complete with bar, chain, chain cover and socket wrench.
