Echo challenges the Stihl top handles?

Recommended Posts

seriously? surely not.


interesting figures on the comparison chart in the brochure -






oil/petrol caps on a same side though :001_rolleyes:


could be a half decent cheap saw though for anyone bored or annoyed waiting for Husky's T540 :biggrin: and doesn't want to part with their cash for the MS201t.

Looks like a very viable option at the moment, useability and power etc would need to be felt I guess but going on the pathetic performance of the 201 and the way Husky have dealt with the release saga of theirs, I'd consider one:thumbup1:

dont like the idea of fuel and oil caps on the same end


Husky did this with their topper, don't recall any issues oher than the handle got in the way of the filler spout.

That is one slick video and the saw looks like a nice peice of "Arb Candy"...obviously the proof of the pudding is in the eating. i see no problem whatsoever with the oil and fuel filling being so near..i always treat filling my saws like i,m handling mother,s milk anyway...nothing worse than oil spilt on the handle etc...if it does the job well i,d buy one! (Plus,it has a "Palm rest":001_rolleyes:) i like little details like that.

think the two could contaminate each other to easily.. ie if u over spill the oil tank and have a nice coating of dusty oil aroung the fuel cap
