Powerful electric chainsaw for woodworking

The electric chainsaw GH-EC 2040 is a handy, powerful tool that proves to be a reliable aid when sawing firewood, lighting and cutting down small trees. The 2,000 watt motor ensures maximum power. Equipped with a high-quality, 40.6 cm long saw blade and a robust saw chain, you can work with a chain speed of up to 13.5 m/s and a cutting length of 37.5 cm.


Maximum safety

For high safety, the kickback protection combined with an instant chain brake and a chain safety bolt.


High-quality components

The high-quality saw blade and the robust saw chain ensure effortless sawing, perfect cutting results and long durability.


Safety due to hand protection

To protect against injury, the chain brake triggers when pressure is applied to the hand guard and stops the chain within a few milliseconds.


Solid claw stop

The claw stop allows the chain saw to be pressed against the wood when sawing and prevents uncontrolled kick-out.


Toolless chain tensioning

The saw chain can be tensioned effortlessly and without additional tools by turning the chain tensioning screw for as long as necessary and then fixing it when the chain is ideally tensioned. The right chain tensioning is essential for perfect cutting results.


Automatic chain greasing

The chain is supplied with oil fully automatically from the 160 ml oil tank during use. Thanks to the sight glass, the level of the oil container always remains in view. This ensures maximum life cycle of the blade and the chain.
