I needed a smaller limb saw for a few tree projects around the house and this seemed like a great value. Unfortunate for me it is to under powered to really work as a climbing and limb saw. Its a little hard starting, but runs well after warming up, just wish it had more power to keep from stopping on small limbs.

I couldn't find any real world video's or many reviews on this saw so here's my take. We added tree services to our already existing landscaping/plowing company and I was going between this and Sthil. After I took some time to go to the two dealers to compare all the different models I decided on this one. At half the price of a Sthil but still getting a great commercial saw it was a smart choice! It has tons of power and the 14" bar is a perfect match. We don't use it every day and have owned it for about 2 months but it has a 10"x30ft limb, a trimming job, a handful of very large Burning Bushes and 2-30ft pines under it's belt along with all the brush that comes along with those jobs and so far so good. The base of those pines were 14-16" and it zipped through them like butter. It's light enough to make several one handed cuts in a row if necessary. I was concerned about the on/off switch like other's said but after using it several times my hand doesn't come near the switch unless I need it to. Fires up on the second or third pull, however I wish it was a bit easier to pull like our other Echo equipment is but not a major deal. So far it's been a great addition!

I purchased this saw about one month ago and found quickly that I should have had this saw a long time ago. I use it to limb larger trees and prune crepes. Starts on 2nd pull, lightweight, and can use safely with one hand. Delight to use.

I have eight acres of land that I maintain and purchased the echo chainsaw for its light weight and ease of use. It has not let me down throughout hours of use. Highly recommend it for anyone wanting a reliable, workhorse of a chainsaw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mem5113 Easy start, lightweight
Used to fall and cut up two large hardwood trees. Cut up and split are over 2/3 cord of firewood. Including trimming branches down to wrist size. Ran thru less than 4 tanks of gas. Best feature is the easy start. Many chain saws and weed whips now have such a complicated set of steps that must be followed.
