The producer of horticultural and agricultural equipment Huter has long ago established itself on the domestic market.

But by the end of 80-ies the assortment of products was greatly expanded, and chain saws and electric chainsaws of Huter were in particular demand among customers.
During its 50-year history the company has built two factories in Germany, but in recent years much of the production capacity has been moved to China. It is connected with the world trends and dictated by the desire of the manufacturer to optimize prices and increase production volumes of devices. It should be noted that the transfer of production capacity has not led to a decrease in the reliability of Huter tools. All tools are produced in accordance with the company’s internal quality standards and are certified in many countries around the world. The high quality and safety of Huter chain saws is also due to the fact that many components are imported from Germany, Japan and USA.

What they say on forums
Stanislav Verbitsky, 43, Ulyanovsk region:
I use the Huter ELS-2400 saw mainly for cutting firewood. I work in the barn – it is warmer and you can not be afraid of rain. In terms of productivity, in my opinion, the electric saw is better than its gasoline sister. There, while you prepare fuel, while you start it, you have already sawed half a heap of firewood with the electric tool. I am even silent about the efficiency of the tool: electricity costs pennies, the cost is only the oil for the chain. I am very satisfied with my purchase, I wish I had bought it earlier.
Peter Starkov, 51, Ekaterinburg:
Of course, the electric saw is not suitable for tasks related to working in the woods and cutting down large trees. As a second device, I bought the Huter ELS-2000. I use it for repair work, especially when I need to cut something in the room. Among the advantages of the tool I will highlight its environmental friendliness, efficiency and low noise level. As for the disadvantages, I don’t really like the keyless tensioner – the chain seems to loosen all the time. Also, the model is too heavy compared to competitors of other brands.
Advantages: price, efficiency, environmental friendliness, low noise level;
Disadvantages: high weight, the power cord is made of low-quality material, weak chain in the basic set.

Reviews of owners
The lineup of chainsaws huter is not diverse, so the cross-drive design and a moderate price for its class convinced me in the model ELS 2000p. First impression – the engine traction is enough, but for stable operation, especially when working with frozen, wet wood, you should use more expensive and high-quality chains. The chain makes noises in the beginning, but it gets better with time. Arkady
Huter electric saw was bought for a one-time job of swinging an old tree, which the wind blew into the garden. Then I bought a Haspel extension cord and started earning something in the village by making firewood. The tool is gradually paying off. For the record, a standard budget quality headset, a sturdier counterpart to Shtlev or Husqvarn. Mountain
