Climb With High Performance And Less Weight Using The Echo X-Series DCS-2500T
Battery-powered chainsaws have come a long way since their humble beginnings. That’s good news for both homeowners and Pros. Now we’re seeing a generation of legitimate professional-grade top-handle options and the Echo 56V cordless top-handle chainsaw is one of the best.

- Brushless motor
- 12-inch bar length
- 0.050-inch x 3/8-inch low profile
- MaxOut performance technology
- 7.3 pounds with battery
- Metal bucking spikes
- Chain brake
- Automatic oiler
- Single bar stud
- Quickdraw harness ring and integrated lanyard hook
- Internal debris screen protects motor and electronics
As a Pro-targetted arborist’s chainsaw, we expect the DCS-2500T to have a brushless motor. Echo takes it up a step with what it calls MaxOut performance to make the most of the motor/battery combination. That’s important considering the kit comes with a more compact 2.5Ah battery to keep the total weight at just 7.3 pounds.
The only option Echo offers for bar length is 12 inches, which is just fine for saws in this class. With weight reduction as one of the key focuses for the design, the bar size helps accomplish that goal. However, notice that Echo goes with the beefier 0.050-inch chain gauge. It’s able to use that gauge thanks to the saw’s performance level.
Of course, Echo ensures you have what you need to work at height, integrating a tether hook and including a quick draw harness ring in the package.
