ECHO CS-900 EVL

     I was hoping to get one of these for a couple of years.  The opportunity came to get one from a retired logger in the northern pan handle of Idaho.  He used it for bucking firewood for almost 10 years. It wasn't a "West Coast"  version with the large felling dawgs and full wrap handle as I would have expected.  The saw had immense power in the cut as I would expect any early version non-reed powered saw from that era, power on the top end!  " Torquey" to say the least.  I ran the saw with full comp chain which was a mistake!!!!  It would have really shined with semi skip.

     Mechanically it is a solid saw.  Built similar to modern saws and easy to tune by ear.  Surprising it is to be set at 9,500 RPM max.  If watched closely I think one can get away with close to 10,500.  I am a bit on the cautious side of things and prefer factory specs myself.  All in all it is an enjoyable saw to run with power to spare, and a must for any hardcore Echo collector.​
