Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Neal Echo CS-352
I bought this as a refurbished saw. Came in a box with nothing but the saw. I guess that is why it was such a good price. I have now put a few tanks of gas through it falling 6-12" alder trees on our property. It cuts great as long as I don't force it to much because if I do I can stop the chain. It could use a bit more power. Always starts right up within a couple of pulls. Not to crazy about the throttle set when you use the choke. Using the choke also sets the throttle full on so when you turn the choke off and start it the engine runs full speed. Compared to my old 1960's vintage saw I was using this is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff1132 Just open the box and start cutting
I did a lot of research as I was seeking a saw that I could use for curing firewood, clearing some areas on my hunting lease and just general around the house needs. I was impressed with the reviews of the CS-352 and it was the right size and great price band. Went to one of my local Home Depot stores today and picked it up. Got it out of the box, added fuel, and chain oil. Drove over to one of our local tree dumps to cut up si e firewood. Started right away and wow, the power, ease of operation, and sure smooth cutting was better than high prices saws. This saw may quick work of every log I cut from small to over 12" and like some have said " it was like a hot knife through butter". I would recommend this with no hesitation at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Easy to use. Light weight.
Not the easiest chainsaw to get started but once it's running it does a great job. Light weight makes it easy to use from a ladder or when climbing into position in a tree.

My husband said it's fantastic. I would like to complement the staff at the Willow Grove Home Depot for their great customer service; it is a pleasure to shop there. From the department manager to his staff and the man I grabbed from hardware........Great Job! Thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by paulf So easy to start and use
I bought my echo CS352 in Feb 2016 and have used it a lot since then. It is really easy to start and runs very well. there is no kickback and it certainly cuts above its class. It the second Echo saw I have bought - the first was a CS450 and still going strong

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brad Frustrating to get started, but good afterward
Took me three hours to get this thing started. The problem was due to the instruction booklet not having a "first time starting" guide. I followed those instructions and ended up flooding the engine. After a while of letting it sit, trying it again, I noticed a tag I removed that had instructions that said what to do a bit differently on the first run. Ended up watching a youtube video on how to de-flood a chainsaw (unscre the spark plug, hold upside down, pull the cord 20 times, put spark plug and everything else back together, keep choke IN, then start). After that I *finally* got it started. After that I used it for an hour, so far so good.

Top of a tree fell during a July MN storm. Finally got around to the bigger wood that needed more exertion from me or something more 21st century. Worked wonders - the greatest wonder being how woodsmen worked without these machines.
Now I'm praying for more storms so I can clear-cut my yard and install solar.
