This saw is the largest of the Tanaka range and is built to Tanaka’s usual exacting specifications and developing a substantial 2.6kw from its 50cc engine, this model is aimed at the Pro landscaper or discerning homeowner alike. Powered by a high performance two-stroke unit with Pure Fire technology, which leads to a significant 30% reduction in fuel consumption; and a massive 70% reduction in damaging exhaust particulates. This  Tanaka  model TCS 51EAP  Chainsaw is fitted with a market leading Oregon®-brand chain and bar, which lessens the chance that the saw will ‘kick-back’ (if it does, the chain is stopped in a fraction of a second by a heavy duty chain brake).

I am really impressed with the overall build quality and 'feel' of this saw. It starts first time, every time and is positive and gutsy.

These machines requires 2 stroke fuel. The traditional way of making this fuel is to buy unleaded petrol and mix high quality 2 stroke oil at a ratio of 50:1.
However, standard pump petrol now contains Ethanol which causes the petrol to deteriorate rapidly causing starting and running problems.
A much better solution is to buy our Aspen 2 fuel, which is pre mixed with the oil and has a shelf life of up to 5 years. This fuel is better for the machine, better for the environment and better for your health.

A petrol chainsaw needs to be kept well serviced in order to perform. We offer a complete annual service which we will be happy to carry out for you.Follow the link below to our service section.


Use of the correct fuel is also very important to all 2 stroke engines to ensure optimum engine life and ease of starting. The correct fuel to oil ratio for this chainsaw is 50:1 (2%).

Only semi synthetic, or fully synthetic oils of good quality should be used. We supply Rock Groundsman 2 stoke oil which we have found to be 100% reliable.

However, the fuel mix is only as good as the base petrol and unfortunately modern petrols are very poor quality and tend to degrade quickly (within a couple of months from purchase).
This degraded fuel leads to poor starting and reduced performance. As the fuel ages it also causes the oil content to separate from the petrol which can cause serious engine damage if used.

To overcome the problems associated with todays ‘pump’ petrol we strongly recommend the use of ASPEN alkylate fuel in all small petrol engines.
