Can 93 octane be used with this chainsaw, or only 89? I'm looking to buy "Echo 32 oz. Red Armor F...

I'll tell you what you don't want to use, Regular Gas. I bought a brand new Echo Chainsaw because they are easy to start and I used my saw twice and loved it but during the winter I left it with gas in it as I had intended to use it in the winter and never got to it. Well in the spring on my first use, it seized and I was told that because I used regular gas the warranty was voided,so beware.

Is the Echo 59.8 a 4 cycle or a 2 cycle gas motor

Asked by Buddy September 30, 2017

Answers

All internal combustion powered chainsaws utilize 2 strokers, exclusively. They are rugged, inexpensive, lightweight with a high power to weight ratio, and deliver more consistent power than 4 strokers. Also, 2 strokers can be operated in any position, including upside down for extended periods, without endangering the motor, or imposing excessive wear and tear on the same. All of which are essential for chainsaws. While 4 strokers don't necessarily need to be kept upright at all times while running, operating them upside down for more than short periods, could put the mill in jeopardy, as a result of lubricating oil being forced from the crankcase into the combustion chamber. For those reasons, 2 strokers are necessary for powering chainsaws.

You can put the unit in a storage container. But I have not heard of a saw without full protection as it lays on the ground. Children should be taught safety and thus should not be messing with a saw.

Does this come with a chain or do you have to buy one?

Asked by John March 7, 2018

A high quality chain is supplied with the saw. Replacement chains can be purchased at most hardware or outdoor supply stores

I have had this saw for 5 years now and love it!! Everything I’ve threw at this saw it has chewed through including rocks. I’m currently clearing a 20 acre fence line with nasty Honey locust trees. We buck up the larger locust and use them for firewood. Overall I love the ergonomics of this saw, just feels good in my hands while cutting. I have used most other brands of saws and this is my favorite as far as overall use. The CS-590 can handle anything on the farm. I read some reviewers have problems starting (might need carb adjustment); my starting procedure is as follows: pull choke, pull start 2 or 3 times till I hear the saw hit (combustion in chamber), turn choke off (push in), pull start and saw will fire up. Normally I do not use the decompression button, always use ethanol free fuel and drain the fuel from saw whenever it will be setting for a while. I have only changed the filters and plug once in the 5 years of owning the saw. I do throughly clean the saw after use. I broke the tensioner last year, ordered a replacement online, and it was an easy fix. I would definitely recommend this saw!

Professional quality at a reasonable price

Had this saw for a week now and so far loving it. Needed a saw to cut some trunks into rounds to split into firewood and my PoulanPro was out of service with parts on order. Wanted 20” or bigger and Home Depot had this in stock. 59cc engine is a huge improvement over the 50cc I had before and this thing has power to rip through your cuts like butter. It was $150 cheaper then the comparable Stihl (57cc) model and the echo actually has a bigger engine. Just like any saw the chain dulls faster or slower depending on what your cutting. After about 15-20 cuts ranging from 18”-24” round started dulling a little but that is why you should have chain files in your tool kit. Only thing I don’t like is the hard case on these are sold separately just like most other high end saws. Super easy to start and it does have a decompression valve for starting so if that’s new for you look at the quick start tag. Overall for the average homeowner with proper care and storage this thing should last a life time.

This saw has plenty of power for the 20" bar that it comes with. I read several reviews on different sites before selecting this for the price, engine size and reported reliability. Although not as popular a brand as some others, it seems to compete with basic features: compression relief valve for easy starting, adjustable bar oil port, centrifugal activated chain brake, tool-free air filter access, metal bumper spikes and a legit chain catcher. I've experienced easy starting (took about 15 pulls to get it started out of the box), but 1 pull starting once warmed up and 2-3 pull starting after sitting for 30+ min. Overall, a nice larger saw (it is weighty) for quick cutting.

Best saw I have ever owned

Bought it to replace my 2 Poulan Pro 20 inch bar 50 cc. The Poulan Pros are decent homeowner saws, but I needed something more powerful and higher quality. At its 399.99 price point, (more than I have ever spent on a saw) I was looking into the Sthil ms271, Husqvarna 450, and this saw. I have had this saw for nearly 2 years, and I can tell you, the Echo cs590 is the way to go. You can't beat the power and build quality of this saw, the 59.8 cc engine makes 3.89 hp, and you can feel it! Even the factory bar and chain are decent. Chain holds an edge well. Replace the bar and chain with Oregon advance cut or power cut bars and chains. I have felled around 30 trees with it, including a 32 inch ash with a heavy lean and a 25 inch white pine. When I first got the saw, right out of the box it popped after two pulls and ran after 3 more. Let it idle through a tank of gas first to break it in a little. Checked the chain tension, filled it up with gas, topped off the bar oil, and went to cut up a dead ash. I remember being amazed at how well it cut, compared to the Poulan pros. Like a 1000 degree knife through water, it cut so well! So much power, barely bogs down on 15 inch ash! One thing you can do to get it running even better is to remove the limiter caps on the carburetor and richen up the mixture. There are some good YouTube Tutorials on this. Perform regular maintenance, (spark plug, air filter, fuel filter) keep the chain sharp, run 93 octane fuel mixed with Echo red armor 2 cycle oil through it and it will never let you down. Best saw I have ever owned hands down. (Doesn't say much for me though as all that I have ran before are Craftsmans and Poulan pros) You can't beat this saw at this price point.
