HAND and arm injuries account for the largest percentage of chainsaw accidents. With that in mind, Echo is offering up a free pair of gloves with selected new chainsaws.

The chainsaw gloves, which have a suggested retail price of £46.04, offer the perfect balance of cut resistance on the left glove and flexibility, says Echo, with a unique design that allows your skin to breathe while maintaining grip and position when operating the chainsaw.

They are described as tough and durable, offering Class 1, Type A rated protection and remain comfortable enough to wear all day. The gloves are approved to EN 381 Class 1 (20 m/s) standard and offer protection against the chain coming loose, which could make contact with the left hand.

You can take advantage of the offer while stocks last when you purchase a new, qualifying Echo chainsaw from an authorised Echo dealer between 21 June and 31 August 2021.

The promotion excludes the following Echo chainsaws: CS-310ES, CS-2511TES, CS-2511TESC, DCS-1600, DCS-2500T, CS-58V4AH.
