The Lightest Chainsaw In The World

The big talking point surrounding the Echo CS-2511 Chainsaw is definitely its weight. Echo claims that this is the “lightest gas-powered rear-handle chainsaw in the world with the most power in its class.”

The CS-2511P features a 25cc 2-stroke commercial-grade engine that outputs the kind of power that’s ideal for pruning and brush-clearing applications. The saw weighs in at an extremely lightweight 5.7 lbs, though this total doesn’t account for fuel, oil, the bar, or the chain.

Even still, there is no doubt that this chainsaw will become a go-to option for many Pros, particularly those that need to work at height.

Other Features

The Echo CS-2511P Chainsaw includes a few features to keep the saw ticking without a whole lot of babying from you. It comes with a spring-assist starter that makes it simple to pull-start, even when up in a tree or bucket.

It also features a top-mounted automatic, adjustable, clutch-driven bar oiler to keep the chain moving smoothly while taking it easy on your oil consumption. A G-Force Engine Air Pre-Cleaner extends the life of your two-piece mesh air filter as well.

The Echo CS-2511P Chainsaw features spring vibration reduction and a palm rest to keep using the saw comfortable and safe.

A side-access chain tensioner makes for easy chain adjustment on the job, while a retained bar nut makes sure you don’t lose important hardware while working.


The Echo CS-2511P Chainsaw accepts both 12″ and 14″ bars and chains, and you can purchase it in either of those configurations. With a 12″ bar and chain, the world’s lightest chainsaw retails for $399.99, while the 14″ option will run you $409.99.

Either option comes with Echo’s 1-year commercial warranty or 5-year residential warranty.
