Handy chainsaw


A light chainsaw powered by a 2. Stroke 30.5 cc engine. Easy start after some priming & 2 pulls. Not very powerful but will easily cut small trees and branches. Ideal for garden maintenance for DIYer. Easy to set up and within 10 mins it is ready to go to work. Top class Japanese quality (made by Yamabiko which is the manufacturer of Shindaiwa). Cuts cleanly and is only 4 kg which is a bonus. Am looking forward to many years of use.

Purchased in September 2019 for $239.00.

Excellent domestic chainsaw, easy start, reliable, lightweight.


First timer for a chainsaw, researched the reviews then decided to buy this model. Very user friendly even for the first timer. Because it is easy to start, smart design for the chain tension adjustment, lightweight. It does all the jobs that $400 chainsaw suppose to do. I have only used it for 2 days about 2 hours in total, however from the personal experience with all types of tools this chainsaw seems reliable.

top saw


this saw is good in tight bush as it is light. use a 3/16 file not the smaller one recommended and use semi chisel chains as they do not de-chrome on cutter tips if you hit gravel etc in old logs. file flat with semi-chisel chains and 10 degrees down with full chisel, this is critical . if you set depth gauges correct they will cut big trees and not bog down. I dropped two 60 foot stringy barks effortlessly on a steep slope near my house. starts first or second pull when hot and weighs a fraction of my bigger saws.

Longevity of our echo chin saw. Not the review of the chain saw above.


My husband purchased our echo in 1981 and it hasn't missed a beat. The brand is Echo little Champ. Bought at Ray Wason's mower shop in Wangaratta Victoria. Cannot put the year in in the space below as it doesn't go back that far. This chain saw has spent a lot of its life gathering wood for pensioners wood fires in Wangaratta Vic. Hope u find this interesting.

Crap. Disapointed and i have 2 off them. A mug to buy the second one. I also have echo 370es. Not im


Echo.i Have a 370es. Not as good as budget husky of some years ago.
I have an echo 310es. Very ordinary. Leaked oil for most of its life. Needs to be nursed. The husky just starts and gets into it.
I alliwed the sales person to talk me into anorher echo 310es. What a mug i am. Brand new and supposedly ready to go. Woukd not make a cut.
Going back this week to where it came from.
Sort the the damn thing out. Can we get it cutting. Brand spanking new and not able to do what it is designed for. Rubbish???
So i have 3 echo chainsaws. Dont waste your time on them.
Maybe i will try skill.

Light and reliable


I have owned three chainsaws - this, a Stihl and a Husqvarna.
The Echo is my favourite. It's light and starts on the second pull overtime. I use it for everything less the the bar length. As long as the chain is kept sharp, it does everything.
I wish the bigger models were more available.
