To THD support; that was the lamest beat around the bush answer I’ve seen in a long time. At no tune in your two paragraph long answer did you directly answer the question asked. You mention many variables As to why any number of products could possibly be priced a certain way but failed to address the specific question asked. We are left to assume since you couldn’t answer the question directly that you didn’t have an actual answer. I don’t see why it’s so hard to just truthfully answer a simple question on pricing. Like. The 20 has a longer bar and we are able to charge more money for it regardless of wether it’s actually worth that much as an optional item.
Yes, the CS-501P can accept a 16", 18" or 20" bar and chain.
Plastic I think
Home Depot will price match if you use the "Live Chat" on the right side of the screen. I told them I could get it for the MSRP at several dealers around the area including Sutherlands. You do have to order it and pay for it while you're in the chat session. Have it shipped to your local HD store and there will be no shipping charge. The chat guy was really easy to deal with.
The CS-590 (a.k.a. Timberwolf) is good, but lacks the higher performance and power/weight ratio (and higher RPMs) found in the pro saws. The CS-501P is about 3 LBS lighter (but sixty bucks heavier), has the Aluminum handle instead of plastic, rim sprocket instead of spur, and comes complete with bragging rights... you can compare up to four different Echo chainsaws side by side on their Web site [https://www.echo-usa.com/Products/Chain-Saws/Compare-Chain-Saws].
Just bought the CS-501P (2018 model, from an Echo dealer), as a saw that runs high performance right out of the box: 5 year warranty, and no need to void it by modifications. 20% more power than the 490, and 17% more than the 500. RPMs are 13K+ and it's the lightest 50cc available. The bar/chain are also high performance, and it has a rim sprocket, all of which equates to greater productivity. Dealer's favorite Echo, and 5 of 5 with 100%telling others to buy this one... there's half a dozen around here to choose from, but if I had to pick only one? This one, hands down.
