Is the manufacturers warranty worth the paper its printed on? I purchased a lawnboy selfpropelled electric start mower new with a 5 year "warranty" for the starter. It quit working after only a few uses but after store return period. Lawnboy was no help and referred me to the two "service" shops in my area. Both places wanted a large deposit with most not refundable even if a warranty issue. Then they both warned me to not expect any problem to be termed a warranty item by the mfg. And in the rare occassions it was a warranty issue it took forever for the shop to ever be reimbursed. Essentially I took it they were telling me I would pay no matter what and that the minimum charge would be at least half again what I paid new. I have found the same issue with my $2000 Swisher tow behind mower that quit after 10 hours use. Unless the purchase is a place like Sears or a local dealer that sells and services the machine manufacturer warranties appear to be worthless and there is not a thing you can do. So, is Echo good for their written word?

Not sure...never needed to rely on it. Not to jar but, how do you use and treat your equipment? It seems you mention how "soon" the equipment stops working including pull behind mower...which is quite soon after purchased. I have had this saw for 3 or 4 years now and to be honest, never had issue with it, store it without cleaning the carb or putting a winter stabilizer in the fuel and literally, not one single issue. I use a specific brand synthetic marine 2-stroke oil for mixed gas and it works wonders for a small saw. Aside from how I do not clean carbs and do special storage for gas during winter, I take extremely good care of my equipment to extend its life keeping the bar properly lubricated and serviced along with proper sharpening of the chain as necessary. I have other echo equipment that needed service and they serviced direct out of North Carolina via parent manufacturer. I might suggest you try contacting Echo direct about the service issues you experience locally. Read Less

Answer: 
Probably not. The key is keeping it lubed. Brand X is going to work as well as name brand so long as you keep it lubed.
Plus, if you bought a sorry chainsaw, it's going to be a sorry chainsaw whether you lube it or not.
If your's is the echo like in the pic, lube it with whatever...it'll work.

Answer: 
I would say NO. Bar and chain oil is just a thick lubricant that will help extent the life of the chain and bar regardless of brand. I use a gallon of p0u1an bar and chain oil over the past 2 years with fine results but be sure to get a bar grease gun to lubricate the bar properly.

Answer: 
I'm no expert in chain/bar lube but i would think that as long as you meet Echo's viscosity requirements (which are probably standardized by the industry), you can use whatever brand you can find.

Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. The item has a 5 year consumer warranty from ECHO the manufacturer not Home Depot. If it is past the 90 day return policy home depot has, the store has the right to refuse refund of the product. All returns are subject to manager approval. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot

14 in. 30.5cc Gas Chainsaw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 556.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT A POWERHOUSE This Echo saw is unreal for the size and weight. The power to weight ratio is amazing. Cutting small branches like butter, This saw thinks it is a Big Boy. Starts right up, Idles perfect, Really great on gas. Automatic oiler works like a charm, Just fill the tank and forget about it. I am Disabled and handicapped due to many spine surgeries, But even i can handle this Echo. Could not be happier with my Echo products, Oh yea-- I also have the SRM-225 Weed trimmer--That is wonderful also. P.S. Went to the John Deere/Stihl dealer, They would not sell me a Stihl with a 14" Bar??? I did not want a long heavy cutting bar. Thank you ECHO for a GREAT Product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected Needed a small saw so I could climb a pine tree to cut the top and limbs off . Expecting to use a husky 20 inch saw to drop the rest and block it up. Decided to keep using the Echo for the entire job because it was so light and cut with no problem. 22 inch diameter tree cut easily but you cant force the saw.No issues with chain loosening. Started very easy with no priming or choke after initial startup. If you have an issue with the saw take it back,there is a warranty. Why would some of these reviewers think they can "fix" a new saw and then call it junk? Maybe they do more harm than good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's a reason for the 5 stars I bought a 16" Poulan and took it back immediately - it wouldn't stay running. Total JUNK. Spent more for the Echo with smaller bar and glad I did. Cut 1/2 a felled Oak tree in 1bout 1.5 hours. Only quit because I got tired. FWIW - The Oak is 20-26" across and this saw did the job. Started up quick and easy. Very light. Take my advice and spend the extra for an Echo. Can't speak to durability but my initial impression is one of high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tired of "disposable" tools? Buy the Echo! Would be a great bonus if a case was included but i'll use the case from the "disposable" chainsaw that i replaced with this Echo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's nice when something isn't junk and this saw isn't I bought this today and very easily cut up a 25 ' tree about 12" in diameter in no time. It took me about 8 pulls to get it started but after that one pull is all it took. I don't know about the longevity of the product but this company certainly has a good reputation and it's built in the USA so I'm hoping to have it for a long time. The brake lever and the housing seem a little cheap, I'm careful with my stuff but it should be noted. Oh and it's nice and lightweight too. Good purchase

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware! The provided chainsaw bar failed before the first tank of gas ended. The chain seized up ... Beware! The provided chainsaw bar failed before the first tank of gas ended. The chain seized up on the blade guide. The blade (and provided chain) are made of very cheap metal that quickly start deforming and shedding metal flakes despite being well lubricated before starting. But, just like the Homelite brand, certain components are very poorly made. Fortunately, I had a new Oregon 14" bar and chain that works great. The chainsaw fuel tank is very small, which means more fill ups but the engine started up quickly and it ran well, though a bit underpowered for cutting anything over 4". Unlike my Husqvarnas, the Echo is fairly light which is a plus for walking through brush. If you buy this, plan on having a spare 'quality blade and chain'.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's an Echo Just purchased a month ago. I have NEVER had an Echo product last less than 15 yrs. In fact a weed trimmer and leaf blower are 15 and 17 yrs and still running strong. I still have an older 16" Echo chainsaw I bought in 1986. The key of course would be proper operation and maintainence. I am serious when I say buy an Echo! This model has very good ergonomics. If one wants a larger bar I would say the max on this one is 16" 14" is plenty for everyday and long term use. Can't review any further than the month I have had the machine but I fully expect it to meet my demands for a long time. Extremely tough to beat an Echo product, trust me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 14" gas chain saw Purchased this when a tree blew down in a storm and it would cost $900 to have it removed professionally. It worked with ease to cut through large limbs and trunk of tree. Wish it also loaded up the cut down tree into the trailer for disposal . It's a nice saw. My husband thought he needed a larger blade than a 15", but after he used this he was glad it wasn't any larger because he could hold it with o e hand to cut while on a ladder.
