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!

This echo 590 has tons of power. Am needing a 24 or 27 inch bar and chain. Don't know if it will pull these sometimes. If si, what are item numbers

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HanktheTank Great chainsaw and easy to start "if" you do it correctly
The Echo CS590 is a great chainsaw that is a real workhorse, probably too much for a typical suburban setting.
Now for the important part, how to start it. Pull the choke out, make sure the button behind the brake is in the down position. Pull the cord no more than (2) times. You should hear the motor rumble a little. Push the choke in completely and pull the cord a few times and it will start.
This thing is easy to flood, if you are not careful and it will drive you nuts.

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