Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jsteve 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gary very good product
I have been using this saw for months and no trouble with it. I cut down a tree maybe to big for the saw with no problems. Make you let the saw work for you. Never force the saw . Make sure the chain is allways sharp. If the chain is not sharp the saw will work to hard and you will have problems.

My last chainsaw was an Echo and it was the best chainsaw I ever owned. I cut a lot of wood and this one looks like it is going to hold up to that repetition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JBourne52 Very good Saw.
I had a tree blow over on our property line about 6 months ago and needed a chain saw to cut it up and remove it. I went through every saw that was listed at this store and found this saw to be the best pick. The tree was about 30' tall and had multiple branches of 4" and larger and the trunks were 12". I bought the recommended chain oil and engineered 50:1 fuel in a can and followed the instructions to the letter. I primed with 3 pumps, set choke and pulled 3 times and it fired up. after a minute of warm up I shut it off and adjusted the chain. I turned it on and pulled it one time and it fired up. It cut great! Finished the job and cleaned it and put it back in the box with the chain oil and fuel. I have used it 4 times after that and never have an issue with starting, chain cutting, nothing. A lot of issues with the others reviews I have read could be faulty equipment or user error, either way this is a good buy.

WE NOTICED THE LANSCAPE CONTRACTORS IN OUR NEIGHBOR HOOD USING THIS NAME BRAND "ECHO" THOUGHT IF ITS GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE PROS MAYBE IT WOULD BE A WISE DECISION FOR US ALSO. THIS DID NOT COME WITH CHAIN OIL AND THE CHAIN NEED SHARPENING AFTER ONE SMALL FRUIT TREE.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JC Average at best
Starts right up the first time. Very light and portable and while it was very inexpensive; it was easily overwhelmed with anything larger than 4" cut. Patience is needed and only use for light duty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Manny 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.
