  1. In the event of a fall or kickback, the electronically triggered sensor instantly engages the electric chain brake, eight times faster than on a petrol chainsaw.
  2. With the OREGON chain, the kickback effect, if it occurs, will be much less abrupt than on a conventional chainsaw.
  3. On first use, the self-diagnostic system checks that the electronic kickback sensor is working. If not, the chainsaw will not start.
  4. The double-press start-up trigger prevents accidental start-up of the chainsaw.

The folding wrench, which folds back in simply by pressing on it, lets the user tighten the chain and provides quick access to the sprocket and chain. PELLENC patent

The system adjusts the greasing of the chain according to the required cutting strength. PELLENC patent

The chain guide is mounted on a mechanism that tightens the chain automatically. PELLENC patent
