Chain Guard

Is the saw now being shipped with the chain guard. Small children customers need all the protection possible while the saw is sitting waiting for use ? If not will move on to another manufacturer that has same ratings with the guard.

Model # CS-590-20AA

The specs. show this saw to weigh just over 20 lbs. almost double the comparable saws, is that data correct?
Asked by: 2ndrowe
Yes, Helps the upper body strength....Seriously, it is a little heavy, but that sure does reduce the kick backs and bouncing. Use the weight in favor of you to help cut. Let the saw cut, not have to push it. I had one of those little 50CC yellow one with a P on it....An okay saw, night and day cutting same wood and trees with the Echo ......A good tool helps do the job, knowing how to use a good tool even works better.....You will spend less time on a cut...less time on cuts means less time carrying the chainsaw and the job is done faster and you are home in time for the game.......See how a few pounds works in your favor, lol............Thank you//DougC

What is the difference between this model (590-20AA) and the 590-20 model that cost $60 more?

Asked by: paul
There is no difference between the CS-590 and CS-590AA. The "AA" at the end of the model number is one of Home Depot's packaging codes and no different in the model itself.

20 in. 59.8cc Gas Chainsaw is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wolf in sheeps clothing This saw is just right.....powerful enough to make the job easy and enjoyable but, not so heavy that it becomes tiring to use. I had previously bought and used the CS400 which whilst being an excellent saw in its own right, it lacked power and had a smaller blade type and was more of a "pruning" this one feels like a pro saw, it has plenty of power and a great blade that stays sharp well. I always use the premixed fuel in a can as that guarantees easy starting, which is important during a long day amongst the trees. Follow the starting instructions exactly and you will be impressed with this is well balanced with minimal vibration, a real pleasure to use, buy one. THIS SAW IS NOT A TOY. I bought the Echo Chaps this time to go with my Echo ear defending helmet with mesh visor.......a small mistake with this saw could be ugly !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a chainsaw For those of you who recall Crocodile Dundee when he encountered the young man with a knife and he drew his huge knife telling the lad this is a knife. That is what happens when you put this Echo between your hands, "This is a chainsaw".....It is a very strong and cutting machine. At nearly 60CC and lots of torque it will do just about anything any DIY and then some needs.................It will not make you Paul Bunyan but I think you will be able to have dinner with saw, made to work, no toy, practice all safety aspects using any chainsaw..............

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw, here is my experience: So first off, this saw is great! No regrets in purchasing it at all. We live off in the forest and have to do things that you do out in the forest, like cut up trees; this saw is great for that. Is a chainsaw, Duh. I have owned it for over a year now and is is great! When I first bought it I did what you’re doing right now, comparing all the saws out there and finding the best one for the money. Well this is it. I know my write up is a bit wordy, but make it through to the end its worth it. Went to home depot looked at it in person after reading up on it. I did notice that the chain was basically covered in cheap clear plastic. I get it it’s a shipping thing don’t want to tear up other stuff with a chain all banging around and tearing stuff up. But cheap plastic seriously ECHO! Fortunately right next to the display of the saws is accessories. They have a nice cover, its orange says ECHO and trim able to whatever size bar you have. If you look online its one of the suggested items and under $7 how can you beat it! This being a 20” bar no trimming needed. And it was not too expensive so just grab one of those while you are there the chain is sharp and could tear up stuff when in storage. Took it home, assembled it, hit the first snag up. The stupid guard that came with it to cover the tip of the bar/chain area didn’t fit. I know very well on how to match the 3 holes up with the 3 pegs and put in a screw. It just didn’t fit, I personally think I got one for a 18” bar in my kit. Or a old model, or something, but whatever I didn’t really want to use the stupid thing anyhow so no big deal. Poured in some gas I had made up for my Weed Whacker and off I went. Started up first pull! Off to a great start. Then things got a bit hairy! Eventually ran out of gas and had to fill it back up, easy enough right? Well my mix apparently had ethanol in it and my saw wasn’t happy at all! It wouldn’t start. Tried it with the choke on, and the choke off, No luck! Yanked it so many times I had blisters on my hands. Still no Joy. By now it’s getting late in the evening so I head into the garage, pull out the spark plug, its covered in gas! So I empty the gas out of the tank and put it upside down all night with no spark plug in it. By now it’s a Monday so off to work. I get home, and want to see what’s up with my new saw, who wouldn’t right? Put the plug back in pour in some gas, fires right up first pull! So I shut it down head inside put on my work clothes and head back out to saw up some trees that needed it. Well guess what, it won’t start! Now I am really not too happy, and am thinking where I left the receipt at. I then remembered hey dummy, its flooded what do you do when you have too much gas and not enough air? Get more air in it! How do you do that? Hold down the throttle and let the carb open up then all the air it needs! So I try to jam my foot farther in the opening there where you should have your foot to start it anyhow. My boot is too big to make it in there and hit the trigger. So what do? Take off the boot and jam my sock covered foot all the way in there now the trigger is wide open. Give it a pull and it almost runs. Coughs and blows out some smoke. Cool! The excess gas is probably out of there now! Second pull it fires right up. Remove foot from saw and put on boot! So looking back at the last year, I have found it’s a beast, treat it like the beast it is, give it the fancy gas you buy all pre mixed, it loves that stuff. Or find a gas pump with old school gas and go that route, ethanol really isn’t friendly with these things, dries out the parts, causes leaks and gelled up gas in the lines. I have also gone through a few chains; get the RED band chains not the green. They cut way faster. Granted they have more kick up but treat it like the beast it is and always a firm grip you will be ok. The kick up guard on the end I didn’t want to use anyhow sometimes something goes south and your bar gets pinched. That would just make it harder to yank the saw free. I rated the engine as "fickle" but with my write up you should have no problem taming it! So in closing…great saw no regrets in buying it at all! 1 Buy good gas 2 Buy the scabbard 3 Buy red band chains 4 Don’t be afraid to stick your foot up its…handle area if it doesn’t want to start.

Two wildlife firefighters from Utah came to my home in Wisconsin to cut down several huge, old ash trees that had been infected with Emerald Ash Bore disease. They usually use really large chainsaws in the wilderness. When they opened the box they chuckled and said they hoped the ECHO would do. Okay...after six hours of cutting and swamping, the men LOVED the saw. Both said it was one of the best saws they've ever used. They really like the power, the weight, the ease of adjustment, and the strength of the chain. They kept asking me what kind of chainsaw it was because they liked it so much. They said it was "the top of the line home chainsaw." I'm just so glad I bought it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More sawpower/less manpower Out of the box, fill with fuel mix and chain oil, follow easy start directions, and enjoy the power of this chainsaw. At age 82, I found this chainsaw to require much less body strength and effort to use. Great value!

You can't feed this saw enough timber to satisfy it. First day of use was 6 hours of post tornado clean up. Clean up consisted of two 80+ foot Red Oak tress. For the first 4 of the 6 hours she worked, she was only shut off to refuel. The last 2 hours I turned it off after every cut. This was done to see if it would have any trouble restarting. Not once did it fail to restart on the first pull. Bar oil and 2 stroke mix are ECHO. I use non ethanol 93 octane gas. With nearly a 60cc engine and torque output it delivers, I honestly don't see much it won't handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Echo Chainsaw This is one "badass" saw, it started on 3rd pull out of the box and starts on 3rd pull every time when its cold and on 1st pull one it warms up. Love not having to "prime" it and has not been hard to pull the cord. I am a 67 year old DIY guy with bad arms and this saw is a "Godsend". It has not been at all tempermental with fuel mix i prepared and runs/idles great. It has more than enough power to cut thru 18" of live oak. I was at half throttle most of the time cutting a 25 ft tall oak! It uses less fuel than prior saws and lunes the chain real good on its own! It is a little heavy but to me that means "quality" i just place the saw and the wood in position where the weight does most of the work for me! I would recommend this saw to anyone needing a good reliable easy to start workhorse! Echo products have always worked awesome for me!

It did not have the power to cut Boddock tress. Compared the Stihl and the 20inch 59.8cc Echo. The price difference made up my purchase. The Echo was over $200 less and had a bigger engine. It has not bogged down yet. I cut trees every week. It is heavy and loud but that comes with the size. Good saw - good price.
