Product details and specs

Enjoy the perfect compromise between powerful performance and lightweight handling with the Alpina ACS 538 petrol chainsaw!
Providing that superior performance is a 38.5cc air-cooled two-stroke engine that delivers a substantial 1.6kW (2.1hp) to the top-quality Oregon-brand bar and chain; and which benefits from an automatic choke that ensures dependable first- or second-pull starting.
The engine might be powerful, but, thanks to cutting-edge combustion technology, it runs around 20% more efficiently and 60% cleaner than lower-spec motors of similar size.
The ACS 538 is packed with convenience-features, including simple side chain-tensioning, easy-fill fuel- and oil-tanks and tool-free air-filter access.
As comfortable as it is easy to use, the ACS 538 combines ergonomically shaped grips with a lightweight build (just 5.6kg) and an effective spring-type anti-vibration system.
An engine on/off switch enables immediate restart following shutdown; while a dual-action chain-brake – triggered either manually or by kick-back – means you can have total confidence when it comes to operator safety.
This model comes with a mid-sized 35cm guide-bar and features an automatic oil-pump that can be adjusted to suit the timber density.
