Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woodchuck99 Just what I needed
My shindaiwa 488 worn out and I was looking for a replacement chainsaw. Read about echo acquiring shindaiwa, so I started comparing what Echo chainsaw would be compatible. The CS500P is light for it's class...which is a big plus for me. Also my bars and chains from the 488 will fit on the CS-500P. It has the CID and has always started in 2 pulls. Also it does not have the primer bubble, which always leaks at the wrong time---it does not need a primer --starts within 2 pulls. This saw is well balance--I have the 20 inch bar and have use the full length and it never pulls the saw down--awesome power. I have ran about 10 tank fulls and the fuel consumption is excellent. I am very happy with the saw and would buy another one if someone stole this one...cause I believe it's a quality saw and probably will last a long time

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by juhaszms Not my first Echo
I own a smaller Echo at home in FL and purchased this one to use at hunting camp in WV. I removed the bar and put the saw in my checked baggage prior to it ever having fuel or oil in it. I re-assembled once I arrived at camp. I look forward to using it for some timber stand improvements on the property as well as for cutting fire wood.

I have purchased my echo chainsaw about 3 months ago and it works really good. I have made around 10 loads since the day I bought it and it still gets the job done. Thanks for a great product for our first winter.

This is a good saw, powerful, and easy to start. The price was high, but if it is reliable, it will be worth the money.

I was really surprised at how easy this saw starts and cuts.
Replaced a Stihl MS170 homeowner saw and this is by far a superior, professional wood cutting machine.

I have just put mine on order with a 18" bar, must say its not cheap! At $723 Canadian, but really looking forward to getting this saw! Using it for cutting firewood to sell and make money, would rate the quality and value but don't have the saw yet so I wouldn't be able to say what it's like but I bet if it's like the cs-4400 it's a saw that will last!

Going on my 3rd season and already have 10 loads cut. I go through a lot of firewood and this saw NEVER fails to start. It uses far less gas than the Stihl 025 model and cuts better. Its also balanced much better. I love my choice in the CS 500P.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dirt Boy Very nice saw.
The Echo 500 is a very nice saw. It has plenty of power to cut anything I come across which is mostly oak and locust. When I'm using it all I have to think about is the cutting because the weight, balance and power are so well matched. I have saws from two other leading brands of similar cc,s and the echo is by far my favorite. I mainly use it for felling, limbing and bucking firewood.
