I have an old Echo 500VL that falls in the recall campaign. I emailed Echo and they called me the next day and told me to take it to my nearest Echo dealer and they would replace it with a new saw. They gave me the name of the nearest dealer to me. The next day I go there with the saw and tell them what Echo said and they looked at me like I was nuts and I can't blame them. I mean someone comes in with an at least 25 year old saw and wanting a new one, I would do the same thing. Anyway the dealer said he would check into it. It has been two weeks and I called and he said that his division rep has not gotten back with him. Has anyone taken part in this recall campaign? If so what did you have to do to get the saw replaced? By the way I did a search on this site and thats how I found out about the recall and the problem with the flywheel coming apart and doing major damage to body parts.
