Reviews of owners
Bought three years ago. Saw Echo without any complaints. It starts up well both in hot and in cold. I work as a builder, so the chainsaw rarely rests. In all the time I’ve worked, I’ve spent only on a bar and a few chains. The tool is perfectly balanced – arms and back don’t get tired. It is worth its money.
I’ve had my Echo for over a year now. My first impressions: well balanced, fits well in my hand, absorbs vibration well, not too loud. It’s an excellent tool.
