Love it!
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.

Light weight
Light weight and easy use. Make sure to keep air filter clean, otherwise it gets hard to start.
Great trim saw
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.

Great single hand chain saw for single hand use being the lightest on the market. Great for in tree use as well as great for small tree limping A3up a ladder

Fabulous little saw
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.

Perfect size and weight
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.
