Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shaker Shack Best Saw I ever owned!!!
Got this saw to replace a Jonsred 2050 Turbo which I owned for 30 years and used it often.Good as it was it cost a lot of money in repairs. I have to say that the Echo has out cut and wights less and has more power than the Jonsred ever did. It has 18" bar and is balanced so perfectly. I replaced the safety chain with 3/8" semi chisel tooth chain and cut an old hickory up and a ash and a red oak and a sycamore that had fallen over during wind storms. I also have a 455 Husky Rancher that I never even fired up. My Echo never slowed down or got dull until I was done. The only reason I ever stopped was to gas and oil and rest.
I couldn't believe I had as much wood cut up as I did in 4 hours of cutting. With either my Husky or Jonsred I would have been out there another 4 hours. None these trees had smaller butts than 38".
So far this is the best. I am thinking of selling the Husky for a bigger ECHO now. Very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RK153 Echo is the way to go
The Echo CS-400 was a gift for me from my parents. They bought it for me to cut down a 60' pecan tree in their back yard. Bamboozled right? Well, not really. The CS-400 made light work of the 25" diameter tree. It never bogged down and has the power needed to get the job done. It really did slice through the tree. Now, I've had other less expensive chainsaws in the past. They last several years but they also require a lot of effort on my part which can be exhausting in an already demanding chore. With the CS-400, it's just fun. I spent the following weekend cutting 15 mesquite trees without any problems at all. I ran the Echo CS-400 chainsaw for 6 hours straight with the regular stop for refueling and bar oil and stacking. It starts super easy, it's well balanced and just looks good. It's the hotrod of chainsaws. I will never use anything else. My friends were so impressed, they are buying g Echo's too. My Echo CS-400 is awesome. Buy one and don't look back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert44 Just what I wanted
Purchased the CS400 from my local epuipment dealer after researching chainsaws reviews online. It's features compared very favorably with all top saws in its class. It was the only saw that came with a case and starter kit at no extra charge. I think I got a great saw and a great deal.

Works great, always starts on first pull. I've cut up 12 dead trees on the property and cuts like a knife through butter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bashaug Nice machine.
I bought this saw in a package deal to replace my ailing Craftsman of 20+ years. The features are nice and the saw cuts wood like butter but lacks some power for very large logs. I like the easy access filter would have liked slightly better toolless chain tightening. The case is too boxy (could be smaller) and the chain cover comes off and on too tightly. The saw starts very easily every time. The chain brake doesn't seem too useful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by abilenebiker GREAT 18" CHAINSAW
Have used this chainsaw to cut down 2 large trees one trunk 32" in diameter and another 26" in diameter. Also several small trees. Starts on 1st or second pull every time and cuts fast with no effort. Would not trade for any other brand. Great features including primer bulb and auto type air filter.
