SUPER Products! Great Warranty!

  • Summary: Echo brand is absolutely Excellent. I've owned an Echo CS-370 for nearly 4 years now and it has never failed me. The CS-400 is only slightly heavier but just as robust. Check, fuel, oil, tension and GO! Why pay more for hype and advertising when Echo fills the bill! A 5 year consumer warranty doesn't hurt either!

As a person that depends on a chainsaw I think this is the best.

  • Summary: I had a Sti-- saw and had nothing but trouble with it. Spent 62.00 repairs and another 80.00 1 month later. That engine would not start. Once it got going it was ok but the starting was terrible. A friend told me to get an Echo. I did and it never fails to start,even when it is very cold outside. I am well pleased with the product. The Sti-- saw still does not start.

Good work saw best kept secret on ebay

  • Summary: This saw is an excellent overall farm saw it never bogs down if used correctly. Mine came with an 18inch bar it starts right up in 1 pull. It definitely gives stihl a run for its money. After owning a ms290 for about 3 years I'm impressed to say the least.

Reliable and Powerful little saw.

  • Summary: Needed a chainsaw to cut a few trees, but wanted a reliable one without breaking the bank. Did some research, and Echo was highly praised for their reliability and power to weight ratio. Very happy with my purchase thus far, the CS-400 is a great saw. Easy to start and handle, no dislikes so far. Mid Level saw with commercial grade engine. What more can you ask.

Junk!

  • Summary: mixed the oil that came with it in one gallon of gas. Filled the chain oil reservoir. Primed it choked it and it started right up and ran for maybe 10 minutes before quitting. It will not start. Plug is dry and clean. Filter is clean. Any product should do better than that. Now I have to take it to a dealer and wait to get it back. You get what you pay for with echo. Cheap price Cheap Chain Saw. I should have paid more and got a Stihl.

Great value, comfortable to use, worth the money.

  • Summary: I had done some research before purchasing this saw, it had got better reviews than the majority of other brands. This was a replacement for the Poulan that I had recently purchased but had seized up before the first tank of gas had ran out...keeping that saw running was quite a chore, new out of the box it couldn't even idle smoothly.

CS-400 Another solid Echo performer

tw9589, Ebay
4 January 2012
  • Summary: I think the CS-400 is a great midsize saw. It starts easy and idles down great although it is a little cold blooded and needs a few minutes to run well. I was cutting 10-12" oak this week and it handled it just fine. For limbing the light weight yet good power was a breeze. I would recommend this saw and would purchase it again in a heartbeat.

Just but this one.!

  • Summary: Excellent product. Handles and cuts easily. I've dropped it twice and it is a solid machine. Best chain saw for home use I've ever purchased. The Craftsman I had wasn't in the same class.

One tough saw! easy start

brazosred, Ebay
3 December 2011
  • Summary: Have used ECHO products for over 25 years--have 4 saws that are from 25 to 15 years old- still running- my latest saw is the cs400- great saw, easy start, reduced pull effort-lite weight-fast throttle response-I use these saws often around the ranch, as well as cut winters wood (oak & Elm) all hard woods and these saws preform year end, year out. Keep sharp chains and watch the chips fly!

Great product at a fair price

googietools, Ebay

  • Summary: I am no rookie at using chainsaws. The Echo CS-400 is a solid performer. It has plenty of torque for its size. Echo still uses the toggle on and off switch, which I absolutely love. The air filter has to be one of the best in the chainsaw realm. Put on a real chain (not the safety chain) and this saw rocks!! Look forward to using this saw for many years to come.
