how do I get the bar to lube the chain

I have a brand new fixed extension tha is not properly lubricating the chain
Asked by: jcan
I don't know what a fixed extension is for a chainsaw. The chain is lubed by the automatic oiler pump that's built into the saw. Keep oil in the reservoir on this saw and your chain will stay lubed!

Asked by: Anonymous
No power is lost when extending and you cannot add another extension. The extension slides from within the inner tube.

12 in. 13 ft. Bar Gas Telescoping Pole Pruner is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutting machine I've been wanting a pole saw for a long time. It seems as though I was borrowing my brothers Stihl all the time for trimming. We have an Echo pole saw at work and have put it through some pretty rigorous cuttings. Both good saws, but the Echo is a lot easier to maneuver and hang on to with the handle, and the one at work has NEVER failed me in the 7 years the company has owned it. My work also owns 5 Echo weed trimmers and we never have issues with them either. And that's why I bought an Echo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I bought this pruner to use in removing 3 trees from my back yard. I was able to top all 3 with this saw before cutting them down. All 3 were near the house. This saw preformed without flaw. easy to use and the handle made things eaiser. I had the obtion to purchase any brand pruner but chose this Echo because of the echo blower and weed trimmer I now use. I highly recommend this pruner if you need one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Assembly, engine starting and operation, and actual cutting performance were... Assembly, engine starting and operation, and actual cutting performance were strait forward and flawless. The lack of a well designed harness being included or even available as an option, is a serious drawback. At full extension, it is heavy and unwieldy, thus, I have to caution potential buyers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product ECHO Power Pruner PPT-280, I considered Stihl HT-131 and Husqvarna 327PT5S before deciding on the ECHO PPT-280. The selection of the ECHO over the Stihl and Husqvarna was not because of a lack of confidence in the quality or performance, as I own both Stihl and Husqvarna power products and find them to be excellent. Selection consideration, the price of the products was not considered in the selection; the utility of the product determined the final choice. After investigating the products equally, in my judgement, professional equipment, on this level, measured equal. However, the decision factor of the ECHO over the Stihl and Husqvarna was the reach. The Stihl extended length measured 11-feet 6-inches, the Husqvarna measured 13-feet, and the ECHO measured in at 13-feet 2-inches and offered an optional 4-foot extension, which made the application of the ECHO more versatile and best suited for the desired application. The ECHO was ordered online through Home Depot, which offered convenient free in home delivery; other than the box arriving damaged, the order arrived on time with no damage. The assembly of the ECHO was very easy, requiring less than 30-minutes. Inspection of the product was as expected and equal in quality to the Stihl or Husqvarna. Test Run, the ECHO started with no problem, cut through dead pecan branches easily, with plenty of power, and the additional length of 18- inches over the Stihl did make a difference. CONs, the product reviews online of these products indicated that most of the complaints regarding gas-powered pruners were that they are heavy. The ECHO is no exception, after cutting branches for a short time it is fatiguing and awkward. However, I expect that this would be the case with any saw of this type. Therefore, for what it is worth; the ECHO PPT-280 is a quality product, does as advertised, and I would recommend it to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw! This is a great saw. I use it commercially once about every 3 weeks. It has plenty of power and rips through anything you sink its teeth into. The gas tank is small but it is very fuel efficient. It seems like a tank lasts forever! Ive had it for 3 years and had no problems. The oiler works perfectly nothing at all has broken on it. The telescoping shaft adjusts in seconds. Couldn't be easier. I don't give 5 star ratings very often but this saw earns it. Overall very pleased would buy again in a heartbeat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tool I have about 2.5 miles of road to maintain on my family farm. This was the only tool that could reach up and in to clear away the high branches. It's also great when you can't reach in get to a branch or small tree because the undergrowth is too thick. I looked at different brands before I decide on Echo. Then I rented an Echo to try it out. I realized I couldn't live without it. I have at least 30 hours on the saw with zero problems. I sharpen the blade lightly with a hand file after every tank of fuel. This makes a night and day difference. My only gripe is the shoulder harness. When I rented one I noticed the harness really didn't help that much. Echo should include a dual shoulder harness and add a hook for the strap about four feet up the shaft from the power head to achieve a good balance. My solution was to use a piece of rubber, two hose clamps and a metal D ring. I put them on the shaft about four feet up from the power head. I bought a $20 trimmer harness to hook in here. To make this work I strap one harness over my right shoulder and hook it to the D ring on the shaft the other harness on my left shoulder on the connected to the right hook by the powerhead. This works great. Yes, I highly recommend the saw, but Echo should provide a better harness and hook in system.
