Impulse buying at its best. And I figured I needed to buy myself something before I departed for this h*llhole. I was clearing a client's pasture of some scrub softwood and decided I needed a new saw to augment the CS-340 (which I had purchased a longer bar for) so I went out and bought a new Echo CS-4400. Not a Stihl or Husky but seems quite robust for the $$$$ paid. Anyone else out there have any experience with this model??
