Most hardware stores, Home Depot and others sell washers. You do not need a special one, just one that fits. The nut might be special, but not a washer.

Can you put a 20 inch bar on a chainsaw that comes stock with a 18 inch bar

Asked by Dog March 15, 2020
5
Answers

I would think so, as long it fit in the chainsaw housing. be careful that the engine of 40.2 cc it is powerful for a 18in blade. There is a more powerful Echo engine for a 20 inch bar.

Have had this saw for a year
First saw I’ve ever bought and I’ve cut down a lot of trees with it. Today i cut down a big pine. Biggest tree I’ve cut down so far. This saw is amazing. My dad has had only Stihl saws in the past but honestly the reliability of this saw is amazing. I didn’t run it for 4 months during the brutal heat and added fuel primed it and pulled the choke. 2nd pull turned over. Took choke off and off she goes. You cant see it in my picture but i had to fall 2 medium oaks and 2 sweetgums one which was a sever leaner and the pine. I still have the original chain on it and its been sharpened about 20 times. Well chain came off when I cut this tree so now I’ll have to get a chain but honestly surprised its lasted this long

So far so good. I've only had it for 2 days but I'm loving the quality of the saw. I had someone cut down a tree and told them I'd cut up what they brought down to save myself a lot of money versus having them do it. I'm not sure what type of tree it is, someone told me oak but another told me maple. The setup was easy. I only had to tighten the chain some. I followed the instructions on initial startup and it started right up. I made sure to adjust the chain tension after running it for 15 minutes because I read they stretch when new. I had to do this probably 3 or 4 times until it seemed the chain tensioner was no longer needing adjustment. The guys were using $700 Stihl saws and there was definitely a difference in power but not so much that I'd spend the extra $400 for one. If I did it for a living I might consider it but like I said, this saw wasn't too far behind theirs. They even said they'll get one as a backup or for smaller jobs. I've included pictures showing what I cut with this saw. I kind of wish I'd sprang for the 20" bar since some of the logs were beyond the rated capabilities of the CS-400. But, I made it work. It only bogged down a few times. That's not the saws fault since I was pushing it. I would definitely recommend this chainsaw!

This chainsaw was bought to replace a 15 year old Echo CS 400 which saw very heavy usage and I was very pleased with. The new CS 400 shares all the same features I enjoyed about the older one and performed great right out of the box! I received it two days after ordering it which was fantastic! It was double boxed and well protected. I have watched many friends struggle with their chainsaws and was always pleased at how reliable the CS 400 was. As a footnote, after spending about $80 to rebuild the carburetor and service a few wear items, my old CS 400 is back up and running as good as new!

It usually starts second pull. Occasionally, third pull. It definitely does its job. I have cut down four trees so far and it outperforms my other two chain saws. I was initially skeptical, (reading the negative reviews) but I concluded the hard starting problems were probably those who do not use 50:1 gas or do not put a gas stabilizer in the fuel. I have had zero problems with it or my other ECHOs. Someone recommended putting an Oregon chain on it, I did. I'm going to put the OEM chain back on when the replacement wears out. I also have an ECHO string trimmer (GT 225) and leaf blower (PB250LN). Echo makes some fine engines. They all start easily. I'm sold on value and quality. I would and do recommend Echo products to anyone interested. If they made a car, I would probably buy one.

solid saw
Customer review from echo-usa.com logo
After a lot of research I decided on the cs400. I considered other saws from the major orange and white brand and from what I gathered, this was much closer to a commercial grade saw when comparing to the other brands similar offerings and the warranty backs that up. I've had the saw out a few times and it had no problem bucking a couple down trees I had on my property. Overall the saw has been great. it's extremely easy to start and has plenty of power to cut through the medium sized trees that I've thrown at it. Time will tell how it holds up but i'm expecting it to run for a long time.

I only use my chainsaw a couple of times a year to trim trees and cut wood for my fireplace, but my saw gets a hard workout. Only had the Echo CS400 a couple of months.. It started easily and cut really well. Disappointed that it didn't come with a case. Also that I had to adjust the chain tension so often. The chain loosens up about every 15-30 minutes of use. I don't want to over tighten the bar guide adjusting nuts. I've stripped those threads before on another saw and it's a lot of work to replace the bolt(s).

Buy It!!!!
Customer review from echo-usa.com logo
I bought this chainsaw earlier today after my other one passed away due to old age, took this out of the box and was highly impressed!!!! I would put this up against the Stihl Farmboss and any other company any day! I sliced through oak and poplar like it was nothing, very versatile and built very very well, and very easy to operate! Buy it!!!!!

I am an average home owner that I like to do and repair things on my own. This was my first time purchasing a Chainsaw not my first time using one and decided to go with Ryobi because of the price and compare with the other expensive brands the Ryobi show better features but dont let the features or accessories trick you. I spend two days with the ryobi chainsaw pulling the cord, fighting to turning on and I follow every step on the guide, plus watch many videos in youtube how to use it, the first day I can only used it for one hour by next day the chain was already loose and need it an adjustment around 5pm on day number two I was frustrate, tired and sore for spending all day trying to turn the chain saw. I decided to go back to Home Depot returned and purchase an ECHO Chainsaw for my surprise the machine turn on with no effort and the engine stay on the whole time in just one hour was able to cut all the wood that I tried to cut in two days with the Ryobi. The quality of the Echo compare with the Ryobi piece of crap was so noticeable that my wife came out of that house because the sound of the motor on the Echo sound like a sport car compare with the motor of the Ryobi that sound more like a Hyundai going up hill. if this is your first time purchasing a chainsaw this is it, value your time the Echo chainsaw cut wood like butter and the quality of the parts are durable.
