    Efficient, Low-Emission Engine for Quick Cuts
    A chain saw can only perform as well as the engine behind it. This Tanaka tool’s 40 cc, 2.4-horsepower commercial-grade engine features PureFire low-emission two-stroke technology. Fewer fumes mean safer operation and less environmental impact. This design makes the saw CARB Tier III compliant for use in California.

    In addition, this Tanaka chain saw’s engine is built with the S-Start system and a purge primer bulb. This starting system reduces the amount of force necessary for pull starting, which reduces the amount of stress placed on your body.

    Bar and Chain Set for Increased Efficiency and Reduced Kickback
    The dependable Tanaka powerhead comes paired with an 18-inch Oregon bar and chain set with a versatile 3/8-inch pitch. Oregon’s products are designed to provide effective cutting performance while reducing kickback for safe operation and controlled cuts.

    An inertia-activated chain break stops chain rotation immediately. A side-access chain tensioner allows for quick and easy chain adjustment, and two secure bar-mounting studs improve the saw’s cutting efficiency.

    Compact, Anti-Vibration Design for User Comfort
    This saw’s five-point anti-vibration system aims to increase user comfort, even in extended-use applications. The saw also features a convenient D-style rear handle for additional comfort.

    The powerhead weighs 9.7 pounds, which allows the fully assembled saw to remain manageable when used with most bar sizes.

    This Tanaka 18-inch rear handle chain saw is backed by a seven-year consumer warranty. When used in non-rental commercial applications, the saw is covered by a two-year warranty. When used in rental applications, it is covered by a one-year warranty.

      Excellent saw, but with one hazard I have been cutting wood with my family for over 10 years. Recently I was in the market for a new, larger saw. Having been around Tanaka for a while, I was excited to try the new big saw. The 7 year warranty is a major factor as no one else can compete. The power is very impressive. The saw starts quickly and easily with the decompression valve. The unit is easy to run and doesn’t vibrate your hands all to pieces when operating for extended periods.
