A fellow brings me this Echo cs 550 evl to check out and find why it won't run right. Somehow he got a look at my McCulloch 250 that had been sitting in a pile of project saws and after a little horse trading he left with the 250 and I had this Echo and a 24 inch Stihl bar, still not to sure who got the better deal but the looks of the saw caught my eye and the 250 was just gathering dust and of course was not a Super. The Echo only needed a new clutch drum and sprocket which set me back $10 and I got it put back together today and tuned it up and cut some wood with it. First off some of the eye catching things on this saw, full wrap handle and dual dawgs, and a 24 inch bar, not sure why Echo put these on a 55cc saw, especially one with ho-hum performance, a 18 or 20 inch bar would be better. The only saws I have to compare this to are a Stihl 032, Stihl ms 260, and a McCulloch 10-10A, the Stihls I feel are both stronger saws and the 10-10 feels about equal in power but sounds way cooler, so all in all a ok saw with the high points being the full wrap handle and dual dawgs.
I will have to make a video if the saw hangs around long enough.
