“Modern 70cc saw from Echo with old style carburettor tuning”
Over the past 2 years I have bought an Echo CS362tes top handle saw, CS2511tes and a CS621SX ground saw, to replace there Husky equivalents and been really impressed with there design and performance. Dick Leigh Chainsaws in Barrow has kindly lent us an Echo CS-7310SX to demo for when the time comes to replace a 70cc saw. We have held on to the saw for about 3 months, enough time to put several tanks of fuel through it, bed in the piston and ring, and wear out 1 chain.
I think this is a good saw that could have a long lifespan. If you are going to visit Dick Leighs for a 70cc saw this is well worth considering and should definitely be on your short list. If the choice is between maximum performance or longevity the Echo is likely to win on build and reliability, and with a little tuning it could be a game changer for Echo.
