Summary: I run a commercial tree cutting business and have used ECHO chainsaws from the very beginning. I own a variety of sizes for limbing, felling, and cutting firewood. A couple of years ago, I demo'd a CS-600P and it was love at the first pull of the starter cord. With its 20" professional grade bar and chain combo, this quickly became my go-to chainsaw. It is easy to start using the decompression feature - no foot on the handle in order to pull the starter cord.
Summary: Make sure you follow the directions when first starting saw right out of box. This is one bad ass saw runs good and starts right up. Liked it so much i bought a echo cs 400 for smaller stuff it also is a great saw .
Summary: I am very happy with this saw so far. It replaced my Stihl 036 that I crushed with my skidsteer. It has plenty of power and is an excellent starter. It has a nice weight balance with the 20" bar. If you were choosing between the Stihl MS361 or the Echo Cs-600P the Echo is a much better value at about $130 less. I make log furniture for a living so I use my saws alot.
Echo did it again! Awesome saw w/ great cutting power!

Summary: Likes - I love the pwr and how light Echo makes their saws compared to others even the other 2 top name brands. Stihl's are great saws but you can get an Echo that will match it cut for cut that's lighter and usually $100-200 cheaper. Dislikes - I only have 2!!
