Ryobi RCS4240B Petrol Chainsaw with 400mm / 16" Bar & 42cc 2 Stroke Engine

Low maintenance & easy to use, Ryobi's RCS4240B Petrol Chainsaw also provides smooth, powerful cutting through large rounds & close grain woods. Impressive specs, like a rapid chain speed of 23.8m/s & an engine displacement of 42cc, are a reflection of the chainsaw's superior performance, with its Powr XT™ full crank engine delivering a high level of torque output for effective operation on the toughest applications. Too much power can be a hindrance if it isn't combined with an equivalent level of control, & the RCS4240B's triple handle design benefits from a 3 point anti-vibration system for optimised handling & reduced user fatigue. Other advantages include a durable 40cm bar & chain from Oregon, a fast action inertia activated chain break, & the chainsaw's pollution reducing clean engine technology, which beats both CE CO & CE HC+ Nox emission limits by comfortable margins. Tool-less chain tensioning & automatic chain & bar lubrication help to keep maintenance demands down, ensuring reliable performance with minimal effort.

Petrol Engines
It is important to read all instructions regarding petrol products. 4 Stroke engines require oil and some machines are supplied dry (No oil to start with). Running a 4 stroke petrol machine without oil will result in the engine seizing and is not covered under warranty. 2 Stroke engines will have a mix of oil in the petrol this normally 1 part oil to 50 parts petrol but not always, again please read the instructions supplied with your machine. Petrol engines do require more maintenance than electric engines but if reguarly maintained they will normally give many years of use.

Additional information regarding Chainsaws
Chainsaws use Oil for lubricating the chain, ensure that the oil reservoir is kept topped up to stop your chain seizing and to extend it's life.

Petrol Chainsaws use Oil for lubricating the chain, ensure that if you buy a Petrol Chainsaw that you fill the oil reservoir up to stop your chainsaw seizing and to extend it's life. In addition if the chainsaw is 2 stroke you will need to add 2 stroke oil in the advised mix to the petrol.

Chainsaws are extremely dangerous. Great care should be taken when using chainsaws and you must always follow the manufacturers instructions. Always wear appropriate safety clothing and protection.
