I stopped at the local Echo dealer to get a new pull rope for my Simplicity snow blower and he forced me into going over to the chainsaw wall  :D he didn't have the 2511P, just the top handle although he said he will in a few weeks. That is a cute little saw, I believe the top handle 2511 was almost $400.00, does that sound right?

Yup, that's what I paid. It's considered part of their pro line, so the prices are higher than you might otherwise assume. The "X" series are what they consider their pro tools.

I paid $415.00 with that upgraded bar 12" and three oregon chains.  Dealer had tools and extra air filter in the bag with the owners manual.  Not sure if that was him being thoughtful and proactive, or if ECHO includes the extra air filter.    The same dealer did this also with the 550XP Mk. II  I'll ask him about these extra air filters.   The 2511P was $399.00 with the stock bar.

Sounds like you have a good dealer.  I have about 15 tanks of fuel through my 2511 now, and it runs noticeably better than new.  It is always the first saw I load if I am heading out with saws.

Just an update after several months of use.  Now that the newness had worn off.

The fuel and bar oil caps are okay, but having to use the recoil handle as an aid in leverage for removal is an extra step.  I like the Husqvarna 550xp caps much more.

The saw always starts easy, runs and idles great.  Very light weight.  It is excellent for the 4-5" trimming and clean up work.  

So in a nutshell, I am still happy with this saw and it's usefulness.

Yea, I'm not super fond of the caps either, but I'm one of the weirdos that likes flippy caps. There's a narrow range between loosy leaky, and using the pull handle to free them. They're also more prone to getting bits of crud on the gasket causing leaks. Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but there's room for improvement. At least the holes are big. It's very easy to fill without making a mess.

 Used the 2511P and 550xp to get the wood pile stocked up for the next heating season.  That 2511P is nice to have handy for cleaning up the annoying limbs.
