    This saw came in the other day,
    Echo 900, This was purchased from a member here
    who listed it on the bay. I snaped it up with the BIN.
    Pretty nice shape, seems to run well just haven't had
    time to do any cuts with it yet. But i feel it should be
    fine.

    That 900 is in really nice shape Lee. Wish I could have said the same though. That's life on ebay though I guess.

    Now we can have 900 races.

    Lee- that's a nice score. Hopefully someday we'll score a shipment of CS-1201s with full-wrap handles.

    I keep hoping Jacob, But i think it's only going to be a wish.
    Looks like Africa is the only place they can be had.

    Nice buy Lee.

    You should have no reason not to like that one. They run really strong. I got a lot of suprised looks from the people who ran mine last summer.

    I'm still waiting on the parts to put mine back together.

    Thanks Guys,
    I just need to try it in some wood
    but my broken right wrist isn't helping
    at all. Hard to run a saw.
    It is safety chain, Figured i would try it
    since it came on the saw. But i will most
    likely change it with 404 chisel.

    Bummer about the wrist. Take it easy and heal up soon.

    Nice saw BTW!
