    OK just wanted to say hello to everyone here. Back at the parents ranch in Oregon and looked over the 6 year old Echo 600 that is still all stock and has only warn a 27" bar, plug looked good, cleaned the filter, fresh mix and oil and took out 4 large Oaks. Still reliable saw... The red armor oil is the way to go as well, I know everyone has an oil preference but everything I run it in looks great many many tanks later. Let's see some Echo muffler mods and cutting videos!!!

    IMG_20170624_144957.jpg My 590 finally got played with gasket delete plus machining showed .014 squish so a little off the edge of the piston got it to .020. Kind of a pop up with out welding I guess only god knows what the compression might be. Intake widened, exhaust widened and raised. Its a different saw. IMG_20170624_145806.jpg 3 little holes on each side of the baffle plate are now one big hole on each side. IMG_20170624_145843.jpg the tube was left in so its loud but not ear bleeding loud like @Big Block muff mod.

    So, the only negative things about this saw are the weight, being too heavy and the power, being under powered just a little bit and it all seems to be coming from one person, so one person versus everyone else, there can't be much to it. Can I have a amen?

    I think you have to factor build quality into weight. What other saw has a magnesium case halves, outboard clutch and is called "lite"... None. Great saw, reliable, great power band just buy one and see for yourself. Many others here have and I am sure you would have heard if they are unhappy.

    I am shopping for one, and can't wait to get it. Everyone on here has convinced me. But I do have one question, does anyone know where it's made? I know it is Japanese but it's a made in Japan or over here in the United States?

    Also if you just get the 590 there are some ways to modify 372 half and full wraps to get you a metal wrap on the cheap. I paid $6 for my half wrap. Still working on a cheaper alternative for a sprocket on mine.

    I still say get a 590 and have it ported it'll run harder then a 620 for the same money or less. Spur sprocket and plastic handle don't really make a difference to me I guess to some there deal breakers.

    I wouldn't buy an echo wrap but I figured for $6 why not. Didn't care how much the plastic handle flexes but isn't a deal breaker. Only reason I'm looking into a rim Speocket is just for once my spur one is worn out.

    Grack that is too cool...

    Scooter you will love any of them 590/600/620 with a muffler mod, delete the base gasket it you can and keep the chain sharp!

    Agreed I'm very happy with just my stock 590 with a limiter delete. I'll look into modding it later lol
