Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PeteD WORTH EVERY PENNY - Better than my Husqvarna by a long shot
This chainsaw is no joke, and is an awesome purchase!
I did plenty of research when my old Husqvarna Rancher 455 chainsaw died last weekend. My old saw was struggling to get thru the main part of the tree, perhaps because of an older chain, or just the wear and tear on it. It had always been a good saw. I stopped to sharpen the chain, and refuel, and it never started again... The repair guy told me it wouldnt be with it to try to fix, so i started looking for a new one.
I compared the standard brands and models in the cc engine I was looking for. I read plenty of reviews comparing the Stihl, Husqvarna, Echo and a few others. I was a leaning towards the first two brands, until I went and checked them out in person, and wasn't overly thrilled with the new way the Stihl saws start. I liked the Husqie but it was the most expensive in the comparison, so I ended up getting the Echo for a few reasons. Im not going to lie, reading all of these excellent reviews was part of my decision. These reviews aren't wrong. This chainsaw is awesome!
This is the best bang for the buck, since its got the most power per dollar, in my caparison. The operational features are simple. yet effective. I was able to finish cutting the down tree, that I was struggling with using my old Husqvarna, in about 2 minutes. Im not kidding, using this saw was like a knife thru hot butter. It ripped thru the trunk in so little time and effort, that I felled the second oak tree and cut it into pieces before my girlfriend even got home from grocery shopping. Even she was amazed out how fast the progress was when she got home, and I was already stacking the pieces. Since it was so efficient, I used much less oil and gas in the 1 cutting session than I did in the hours I was cutting the day before.
I am completely satisfied with this saw, and would easily recommend it to anyone. It comes with a 5 year warranty, and its always comforting that you can get Echo parts at any Home Depot. 5 stars and happy about this purchase!

Replaced a Husky and it is so far a better piece of equipment. Cuts faster, more powerful, and starts right up.

I just purchased the CS-590 as my first chainsaw. I have used chainsaws in the past but nothing substantial. I was amazed by how easily it started and the amount of power the saw had. I just recently took down a 16" dia. pine and the saw cut through it without a problem. The amount of saw you get for the price as well as the warranty is why I chose this saw. Not to mention when I went in to my local dealer to look at saws I spoke with a gentlemen who was in the tree cutting business who personally used this saw as well as other echo saws because of the value and quality compared to other saws. A similar size husqvarna or Stihl would have cost more and had a shorter warranty.

I purchased the Timber wolf saw approximately 30 days ago. Initially the saw would not start. I followed the directions to the T.
The dealer was very polite and offered to exchange the saw. Before returning the saw I called Echo and finally got hold of a tech.
The tech walked me through adjusting the carbirator. Once theses adjustments were made the saw starts fine.
I have cut over a cord of wood since the purchase date, and the saw handles great. Both the downward and upward cuts produce a stable even cut.
