You know I am kind of liking that Idea! a shared design between two respected companies to produce what looks to be a very promising product!
>>Establishment of Yamabiko Corporation
Kioritz Corporation, Tokyo, Japan and Shindaiwa Corporation, Hiroshima, Japan established a joint hlding company "Yamabiko Corporation" on December 1st, 2008 by means of transfer of stocks of both companies.
Consequently, both Kioritz Corporation and shindaiwa Corporation have become wholly-owned subsidiaries of Yamabiko Corporation.<<
I like the Echo saws I have, one of which is a 520. Once you richen the engines up they run great.
The CS-600 weighs in at 13lbís claimed by Echo. I have always liked their trimmers but wonder why they choose not to advertise horse power. Are they afraid of lower numbers than the competition?
13lbís for 59.8 cc CS-600 vs. 13.6lbís for Dolmars 79cc PS-7900
All I can say is Echoís CS-600 better be one heck of a saw when its only 9.6 ounces less than the 7900 Dolmar.

I muffler modded one of our CS-510's a few weeks ago. Big wake up call for that saw. It's now just a tad faster than our Husky 55, but the 55's chain isn't nearly as good as the CS-510's. With a good chain they would be just about dead even.
We are still waiting for our CS-6700 to return. I sent it to an Echo technician, who is rebuilding the shortblock for us. We're going to use it as a project saw, testing it's performance in all areas, stock, muffler modded, then with some porting, etc.
We had a CS-440 in our line-up at one point, it was stolen from a friend of mine who had borrowed it for a couple of small jobs. It was OK, but not nearly as strong unmodded as a stock CS-510, at least with an 18" bar. It was much happier with a 16" bar.
I'm wondering about Echo's 60cc entry. The CS-6700 is a pretty heavy saw, all metal case, tank, etc, downsizing it to 60cc would make for one HEAVY saw!.......Cliff
If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you can read this in English, thank a Veteran!

Echo CS-370 (2)
CLIFF look at the pics of the new CS600 it is a diffrent saw in build than the 670 is!
About the 1201 it looks like it's design in the early 70's and it looks like there's no kickback handle infront of the bar. I'm I wrong??
Edit: And why don't they list HP on each saw on the site

I donít recall Echo publishing HP numbers on anything, but it didnít keep me from buying their trimmers. I really like their balance and low vibes,mine have more than paid for themselves.
Statement from ECHO.
Horse power is not the best way to rate a 2 stroke engines power. When comparing the performance of two-stroke engines, going by horsepower is not really an accurate way to determine the performance capabilities of a unit. The reason for this, is that there are no industry standards set for rating the horsepower of a two-stroke engine. Due to the fact that there are no set standards, this allows too may variables to come into play allowing for possibly an incorrect or misleading horsepower rating. ECHO does not publish horse power ratings.

Well horsepower/kw is how the rest of the world does it, Echo should do the same, but I would imagine the reason they donít is because their lacking in that department compared to the competition.
Since Echo knows the best unit of measurement for a two-stroke engine, they should report the specís on how much energy their product produces. jmho
I really like the look of that 1201!!. It has really old school lines.
