        A:  I followed the directions its important to make sure prime it correctly plus play with the choke. First pull full out then adjust it abit as needed. Its brand new its going to be alittle finicky. After it get used a few times it will start up no issues. I love this chain saw it cuts everything no issues. I also use echo red fuel mix it works great in all my tools.

          A:  Make sure the switch is on. Wait 10 minutes and try it again without priming the carburetor. If that doesn't work return it to home Depot. If they can't get it to start they will replace it

            A:  Hi there! Thank you for your inquiry. The difference is that the CS-40018VP "VP stands for Value pack" comes with a tough chest carrying case and the CS-40018 does not have the case included.

              Q:I've got a 24" bar and chain on order for this saw. I will update if it works on the saw and how well it works. I've upgraded all of my chainsaws with longer chains and bars and have had great luck with my pole saws and Ryobi 18v and 40v saws.Will Update.

              Dependable
              CS 400 to me is hands down the best saw in its class.. I had one stolen I had for 3 years and broke my heart and finally bought another! You want to be happy always buy the best, my dad always said. I found that with Echo

                Amazing!
                This thing was under 2ft of flood water for a couple days thanks to Hurricane Ian & still runs like a top. Amazing product! Would buy again.

                  "CARB Compliant"
                  The gas tank and bar oil tank are not see-through. So in order to fill them up, you have to add a little liquid, then shine a flashlight into the tank, and repeat. The one major problem is it is very hard to start. I choked it, primed the bulb, and pulled and pulled and would not start. I took the plug out and it is completely dry. This is a California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant engine, meaning it is set up to run extremely lean. It finally does start after about 20 pulls.

                    Going on four years, still love it.
                    I love this chainsaw. It's my go-to saw while my Stihl V.031 just sits around waiting. My CS-400 has the 18" bar and it's just right. We spend our summers in New Hampshire clearing our woodlot in order to build when (or if...) I retire. This saw doesn't quit. Starts right up every time. Don't run it without bar oil and flip the bar every time you change the chain and it will last forever. I can't think of anything I don't like about it and would buy another without giving it a second thought.

                      Coming up short
                      Just got the CS-400 so called 18in saw. Measured the actual cut depth, it's only 17 at best. Echo needs to advertise what it will really cut, size does matter.

                        Awesome!
                        Wow. As a small woman, I couldn’t be more pleased with my Echo CS-400. It’s lightweight, a dream to start, and wicked easy to use. It took me less than 30 minutes to make short work of a pine that toppled during an ice storm. I appreciate the ease of maintenance on this model as well as the warranty. I’ll be recommending this saw to friends.

                          Can't change saw blade
                          The saw blade on this model is almost impossible to replace due to poor design. There is a clamp that has to go around the clutch and not enough room to spread the clamp out without modifying the body of the unit. Maybe the lawn mower repair shop has a special tool for this, at the end user should be able to change the blade without difficulty. The instruction manual doesn't even try to explain how to do it, probably because they know it's not well built and wants you to take it to somebody every time. I saw another YouTube videos that other models by Echo were not designed this way.

                            Great Chainsaw
                            This is a great quality chainsaw. I used it for the first time today and went through two tanks of gas. It worked perfectly and starts on the first pull. I would highly recommend this chainsaw.

                              Very happy
                              I have used several saws in my life. Some pretty big some small. This is a nice smaller/mid size saw. I have only ran a few tanks of fuel thru it at this time. But for what i was wanting and expecting i am very satisfied it starts very easy and has plenty of power for the size saw it is. I've cut some trees that took the entire 18 inch bar and it does a nice job. Hope it continues as is very satisfied

                              I bought this to take down a black locust tree and it was amazing! Cut perfectly and started right away after breaking in the motor.
