Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrankD ECHO-CS-400
I have owned and Echo 14 inch chainsaw for the last 16 years and it has never let me down. So when it came time for another and bigger chainsaw my only choice was Echo. This saw is lite weight and has perfect balance. It has plenty of power for the jobs that I have to do. Starting this chainsaw is very easy. I do not hesitate to recommend this chainsaw to anyone. After every use I disassemble it and clean it with compressed air. I sharpen the chain, reverse and lube the tip of the bar. My only minor complaint is the paint on the bar comes off very easily. I am very happy with the purchase of this chainsaw and look forward to it lasting many years

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Remy123 Echos: best saws for the money
I own the CS 400 and the CS590 Timberwolf (the CS590 is the best saw you can buy for $400 hands down) I bought the CS400 to have a lighter smaller saw for around the house and camiong trips and this thing is a beast of a saw for a 40cc size. I put a 16 bar on it instead of the 18", did some muffler modifications and this thing screams. I use this saw alot more than its big brother CS590 even though thats the best saw Ive ever owned, I just use the 400 more because its lighter and will do some serious cutting/felling. I only use the Timberwolf for big jobs that the 400 will lack on.
If youre debating on the CS400 vs a 40cc Husqvarna or Stihl, go with the Echo. They are professional grade, they dont have a homeowner grade, they are all professional. The Husqvarna and Stihls are great too but for the money Echos are the best. Plus they have the coolest start feature ever put on a saw. They start extremely easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DanRo Great saw
Bought this saw yesterday easy to start and has great power for its light weight. This is my first Echo saw I also own stihl , husquvarna saws. I was in the market for a new saw and the cs400 reviews were incredible so I bought it and glad I did. This saw runs great and how can you go wrong with the 5 year warranty. Thanks Echo for making a quality product. I will purchase Echo equipment again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer My first chainsaw and I couldn't be happier
We recently purchased a new home on a wooded lot and realized that a chainsaw would be needed. The CS400 has done a great job cutting fallen trees into firewood. It is very easy to start and has been reliable to date.

I have nothing but echo products, edger, hedge cutter, weed wacker and i needed a new power saw. There was no question to the brand i would buy and that was echo. I paid a little more than others but the guarantee and performance more than made up for it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Disappointed with customer service in the store.
Bought mine as a factory recon. Which USUALLY means it is actually better than new. Most of the time the people take the time to check and re-check the machine. Well they failed with this one. Oiler does not oil the chain or bar. It just flows out the bottom of the saw. Not unless it's running so sure the oil pump is working, and it's not just leaking out the tank.
H/D offered to send out for repair. However turn around time is at least a month. So plan to return for refund and look for another some where.
Honestly love the saw, just disappointed with the defective oiler. Won't discus the sales person at the store.

I was looking for a while and going between Stihl and the echo. Very happy with my decision. Used it about 5 times, each time started within two pulls. Also love the fact it carries a 5 year warranty, that gave me good piece of mind.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tree guy Excellent products, excellent prices
Just bought another echo chainsaw. I've been in the tree care business 22 yrs., and in my opinion, echo products preform as good as any other, but are all in all a better buy.
