Customer Questions & Answers

Is this a good saw for a lady?

would you recommend a lady using this saw?
Asked by: Anonymous
I would not recommend this saw for a lady the reasons why would its a heavy saw and you really need to grip this thing pretty tight to make sure you don't get any kick back not saying you but you never know safety first its not worth any risk to find out the hard way. I would recommend the 14 inch or better yet go with the echo battery powered saw or electric. These mac nines are dangerous for men unless you have the strength of a man I would not recommend any 18 inch gas saw.

can additional waranty be purchased for echo chainsaw mod.#cs-400-18 sku#834306?

Asked by: Anonymous
It comes with a 5 year warranty; that's the longest one I know of; I doubt you can extend it beyond that.

I haven't use the echo extensively but that goes for the other two chainsaws as well. I have an echo weed trimmer and gas blower as well and those products are also a superior value to other brands I have tried in those categories.

First I bought a Husqvarna 440, and couldn't get it started, took it back to Lowes and exchanged it for another one....same thing, couldn't start it, then I did a little youtube research on it and found out it's a common problem, thought I was buying a good chainsaw. Looked online for a chainsaw from Home Depot and figured the 18" would fit the bill out on my acreage. Went down and picked up the Echo for less than the Husqvarna, took it home and followed the instructions and it started up after about the third pull, which was much better than the hundred or so pulls trying to get the others to start. I have cut down and cut up many trees for firewood and haven't had to do anything but put more gas mix and bar and chain oil in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One mean machine.... Yes folks, I was hit hard by the Hurricane Matthew and there were about 5 75 foot trees that fell over into my back yard crushing my 4 foot high, black, chain link fence. Years ago I use to own a chain saw (it wasn't a ECHO) but it "called it quits" on me about a year ago. Since I am so happy with my ECHO edger, which has been performing for years and years without any problems, I decided to try the ECHO CS-400 with a 19 inch reach. Well friends, this little wood eater is fantastic! Always starts on the first pull (or sometimes the 2nd pull) and as long as you keep the chain sharpened, it eats through those pine & oak trees like butter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor design mailed to me with a bad spark plug. i tried for hours to get it started and finally took it to the local store. the sales clerk gave it to a person who put a new spark plug in and got it started. I got it home and started to use it and the chajn pops off constantly. tried tightening it,running it with the chain gaurd,without the chain gaurd. I have never owned a saw with a clip on chain design,and never will again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smartest Purchase Ever Coming from a CS 3450, I was a little leery of moving up into a bigger saw. Could I even start it or would the torque of the motor make that impossible? Took a leap of faith and am so darned glad I did! This saw is amazing! As a female, I can honestly say that a woman would have no trouble with this saw and'll love it! Echo rocks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT HAPPY AND HAD TO RETURN IT. I bought this saw as a birthday gift for my self, I have an echo from the 70's a little CS-302 still going strong, So I thought when I needed a bigger saw I would buy another echo, well I went and got a CS-400 and brought it home and got to looking and this saw must have been used and returned, I know it was the display unit but I was pretty sure it was more than that, upon looking the saw over I decided to take out the plug to see if I was right because it really didn't look as though it had been used, I stuck my endoscope Camera down the cylinder and that's when I noticed it was scored extremely bad, this saw was not new or it was ran at the factory and had damage from the get go, so I got on line and done some checking and wished I had done that first because the EPA has obviously put such strict regulations on these saws with carbs being set from the factory way too lean and the mufflers being built like catalytic converters and not allowing the hot gasses to escape freely enough combined with the lean burn condition set by the mixture screws on the carb causing immediate damage, sure it has a 5 year consumer warranty but heard its not worth the paper it is written on because they will blame you for using the wrong fuel or oil and then the will not honer it, no sir, I took it back and got a refund after all the proof positive things I heard and pics I saw on many forums and videos I seen, I love my old echo but I'm not saying it's Echos fault but the engineers that design these two stroke engines that run high RPM's and are enclosed in a casing that depend on flywheel fins to cool it also allow a cat muffler that restricts the flow of hot gasses and allows them to build up and ruin what it is they just designed, well someone has to take the blame, Hey Echo send me a new saw when you can make one that will last almost 40 years like you used to; Or just send me a new CS-400 and I will do a complete out of box review and usage and follow all your factory warranty instructions and bet it still fails, but the first thing I will do is pull the plug and get that cylinder shot on the camera right out of the box just to see

So I fired this saw up right out of the box and ran it for about 5 minutes or so. Did not cut any wood just wanted to see how it sounded. Then the next day it left a pretty significant puddle of bar and chain oil underneath it which kind of shocked me. I emailed customer service and they told me only fill it half way full as it builds up pressure. Sure didn't see that in the manual it came with. I am on the fence right now and guess I will see how it does with cutting wood and further leaking issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Starting and Reliable I started off buying a Husqvarna 440 from a competitor's store. Unfortunately, that chainsaw was frustrating at every step, including unboxing. The directions were useless and after two days of trying to start it without any success, it returned it and bought the Echo CS-400. Wow, night and day! The Echo's manual was clear and concise, and this thing started with ONE PULL! Within minutes of unboxing, I was cutting through 18-inch logs like a hot knife through butter. And hot or cold, the engine has never failed to start with a single pull. Plus it includes a 5-year warranty, so I'm sure it's built to last.
