Not sure who has the blinders, reading often how you do not like Stihl.  ;D

But I've no earthly reason to switch from the very fine performance I've had from my Stihl saws and my Stihl dealer. So... I'm for sure blind to using any other brand no matter how good they might be.
Not going to buy another brand just to find out either.  :snowball: :snowball:  ;D

I'll yield to those who own the Echo saws and gladly listen how they like them.

I wouldn't be happy if I learned that Stihl suddenly was sold out or bought up by another company and the brand wasn't the same. Stihl has been pretty solid all along, and it keeps them on top but it helps to have good competition.

 Nothing against Stihl pro saws except the price and parts price, the homeowner ones don't have the quality or performance of the same sized Echo saws yet cost about the same plus Echo saws are easy to work compared to the lower Stihl saws, Stihl pro saws are easy to work on also.  Dolmars are also nice well built saws but are getting more spendy than they used to be.  I have a 7900 here that cost $570 new when they first came out, has to be one of the best power to wieght saws out there and built good.  Steve

   Well I must admit that I had the "Stihl blinders" on, up until a couple of years ago. I got talked into trying out a new CS600, and I kinda liked it. After buying my own this year, I have found that I like it even better than my 360 Stihl. When it comes to total "value" I think the Echo has the Stihl beat.

There's a big difference between staying busy and making money.

My favorite small saw ever is my Echo CS-315. Yeah, it's forty years old, but it starts with three pulls (not bad for a saw with the fuel tank at the front of the case...) and the balance and compactness are excellent!

However, that little nylon "fuel pipe connector" recently broke on mine. Anybody know where I might find one? P/N 132 011-1123 0

Try the FF sponsor "Chainsawr" in the left column. May find it there.
