Is it possible to buy the Echo CS-680 chain saw with a 27 inch bar from Home Depot ?

Asked by: Sawman
The CS-680 comes standard with the 24" bar and chain. Additional bar/chain sizes are available as a separate purchase. I have listed the part numbers for the 27" bar and chain below; 27D0PS3893 - 27" Bar. #72LPX93CQ - 27" Chain.

24 in. 66.8 cc Gas Chainsaw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo Smokes Stihl and Husqvarna I bought this saw to replace a Husky that I had. I also have a Stihl. I chose this saw after reading arborist blogs. I decided that I would get great feedback, good or bad on from the people who use saws every day and depend on them for their living. The reviews were split just about even between the Stihls and Husqvarnas, mostly bad. Many of the arborists had switched completely to Echos and said that after using them, for dependability, performance and price would never go back to the others. That was good enough for me and after cutting up a tree that a friend of mine had and couldn't complete with his Stihl, both he and I were impressed. This was money well spent and no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CS 680 Got this about a month ago . Replaced my husky 268. Soon as I made the first cut I knew I made a wise choice. Did two tree removals with it and blew away my buddies Stihl. LOL Look on his face was priceless. Great power and Value. Echo saws last forever. My first Echo product was back in 1983. I can tell you they hold up to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerhouse I used a friends new 680 yesterday and I was thoroughly impressed. I have a CS500 and the 680 with the 27" bar cut everything from the limbs to, the almost bigger than the bar trunk, with ease. Well balanced and plenty of power. I really liked the one pull start too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DO IT ALL SAW CS680 cuts like butter with plenty of power for the 27 inch bar. Also bought the 20 inch bar for everyday chores. Would recommend highly for anyone who needs a dependable easy starting saw for homeowner or professional use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Robust Saw I used to cut commercially in the 1970s and 1980s. At that time, I ran professional grade Homelite saws (Super XL-925s and Super Wiz 66s). I cut pulp wood and hardwood. There was a period when I used Commercial grade Poulans also. Some of my saws had bow bars attached to make bucking easier. I had always heard about Echo saws. My uncle had owned one. When I moved back to central PA, I bought a top handle Echo. It turned-out to be a great saw. I later bought an Echo 6700. It is a beast. It is not a fast cutting saw, but is a very strong pulling saw much like the old Homelites. I also own big Stihl saws and Husqvarna saws. They are very good saws in their own right and I have no complaints. When I need a saw that I know I can lean my weight into it and it will just keep sawing, I grab the Echo. The fact that it has a manual oiler is extremely important to me. I grew up with manual oiler chainsaws and it seems foreign to not have one on a saw. Echo just plain does it the correct way. Extremely well built and extremely durable. I have talked several arborists into going with Echo and they have not looked back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Regrets I did not purchase my saw from Home Depot, I purchased from a local dealer, however this saw has blown all my expectations out of the water. I have owned 3 Stihls in the past and they don't even come close. I have made four test cuts in 20" solid red oak and the saw didn't even skip a beat. Plus it comes stock with a dual port muffler. It pulls a 24" chain without hesitation. The bar and chain are Oregon power match painted with Echo's logo, and the chain is a full chisel. This saw is a true sleeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great runner This saw has plenty for power with a large bar. I have a couple other chainsaws made by the "leaders" of the industry. They both do not idle well, I bring them in to a small engine shop and its good for a day or two then its back to the normal dyeing when you set it down after you make a cut. I have had this ECHO for ten years and no problems. The kick back guard still works well and everything. In short its the best saw I have ever had and I have had a lot of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far good investment I like to break a chainsaw in easy. My first use with this CS-680 was on two standing dead Red Oak trees about a foot across at the base of the trunk. Using "Midgrade gas" with a echo oil mix this saw made light work of it's first job. Both dead trees where down and cut too 18" logs ready for my log splitter in no time. The next two hardwoods I will be cutting will tell me more about what the saw can do. I own a CS-450 It impressed me enough to buy this CS-680. The 680 is a little harder to get started. Once it's running it has the power needed for my type of work. I heat my home with wood. Both of these saws will make this a much easier job to do.
