“DCS-2500T… the future has arrived”

My name is Russell Colledge. I am a certified arborist and a self confessed chainsaw geek. Alongside my father Mark, who has over 40 years experience in the industry, we established Colledge Tree & Landscape in early 2005. Based in Rugby, Warwickshire, our work involves tree care and vegetation management for domestic and commercial customers across the Midlands and beyond. I love working with trees and being outside whatever the weather. Every day is different and I am incredibly lucky to be able to work so closely with nature. i use ECHO tools everyday and was thrilled to be asked to review my new DCS-2500T, 50v battery top handle chainsaw. in my opinion the DCS-2500T is the future.

A key aspect of our business is subcontracting to other tree companies with our 25 metre spider lift MEWP. This specialist piece of kit really comes into its own on sensitive crown reductions, as it gives me the ability to get to the extremities of the canopy where, using the precision and power of my preferred ECHO chainsaw, I can prune with the least intervention as possible.

In early 2016, I purchased my first ECHO saw- the CS-2510TES (later to become the CS-2511TES). I was immediately impressed by its light weight and power and it quickly became my go-to pruning saw. When I heard that Echo tools would be releasing a new battery saw claiming performance matching the CS-2511TES, although sceptical, I knew I had to have it. After purchasing the new DCS-2500T battery saw it is immediately noticeable that it does indeed match its petrol counterpart in power. It’s extremely light weight and compact enabling me to get into all the awkward little nooks and crannies and the 1/4 pitch chain leaves a beautifully smooth finish to the cut. Add to that the benefits of less vibrations, no emissions and lower noise levels??? It’s a winner in my book.

In a nutshell; The DCS-2500T is a professional battery chainsaw with the performance of petrol that helps to respect both the tree and the environment…the future has arrived!
