I bought the Echo CS-271T about a month ago from Acme in Victoria, TX. the guys were very helpful in helping me decide on the right saw. This saw worked great for climbing around in a tree. The lightweight & power of the saw aloud us to maneuver quickly & efficiently, saving time & man hours. Worth every dollar.
Bought this little saw about a month ago for carving. Good running saw and cuts very good for it's small size. I would recommend this saw to anyone needing a small dependable saw. I have always chose Sti__ saws before but ,I am sold on echo now. My next saw will be a Echo.
It was time to replace my 20-yr old Echo CS-3000 top handle saw that I had from my landscaping business after many years of hard use. I'm retired with bad shoulders and back so I needed something lightweight. The CS-271T has been just right. I had about 1000 trees damaged from an ice storm on our cattle ranch. Plenty power in a small package. I've sharpened the chain 3 times so I've been using it a lot. Echo has never disappointed me.
I used this saw for several years in my active tree service business until I retired, and it was often the saw that took down the bulk of the trees that we removed in precarious locations. It has been trouble-free, easy to one-hand, and for the price, just amazing. In a tree or the bucket, it was an extension of my arms and a far better tool than any other available.
I pervious used the Echo CS 300.. I used it for 17 years and still have it. I wanted the next generation starting system..
Love it.. great little saw. My dealer put a 14 inch bar and chain on for me.. which the 300 has.
