^^^ this was just a 288xp deflector on the side with a good .75"x1" cut out and some .0014" stainless mesh underneath (EPA approved spark arrestor)
Here is my stock 620 noodling with a 27" bar and full comp chain... I think this was in the first 3 tanks and it just kept getting better. Very solid saw.
Hey guys, stopped in my local Echo dealer to get a price on a cs-620pw. The saw is listed in the Echo 2017 catalog, but not on any of their price lists. They told me that means Echo is discontinuing the model. Y’all think that is true, or does my Echo dealer wrong? I sure hope not, I was planning on getting a PW. If I buy a P and buy the wrap handle separate, the price will be a lot higher than buying the PW model.

I don't think that is correct, I purchased one last month. Awesome saw!
Cs600 +14cc displacement.
**** ya that is one pissed off Echo. Build info or is it a sneaky saw?
He just did a cool build thread on this. Look for the cs730 hybrid.

Its just a 590 but it will noodle all day with the 20 buried in oak wish I had videos.
Thank you. All echo parts, except for the piston.
50mm side fed quad port jug (cs670/80)
Extensively modified muffler, and a couple spacers, along with some grinding to make stuff fit. No port work was done to the cylinder yet. Just some blending obvious flow restrictions. And a slightly wider exhaust.
I have a complete build thread with lots of pics elsewhere.
Now why can't Echo build something like that out of the box? A 70cc topend on the 600 series bottom end would be a killer.
That's what I'm saying.. if only I had echo's r&d budget.
I love the 590-620 chassis. And the 670. The 670 is a little pudgy for 66.7cc altho they can be made to run. Figured I could blend the 2 saws and make a 73.8cc monster.
What are your thoughts on the 800. Del the guy that ported my 590 has talked about wanting to grind on an 800. I may give him the opportunity if the tree service keeps dropping stuff like this off.
590 looks like a toy sitting on that oak log.
They are nice, But heavy for the cc. I believe they are a very tough durable saw. Will gain nice from porting. But don't think I would buy a new one.
I think this hybrid is the way to go.
How much time is on that saw? 70-80 cc is my next purchase most likely a 79xx dolmar but I like how you took your own path on this one. The 800 was just a thought because del talked about playing with one.
About 12 cuts and 30 min idling. Not even a full tank.
I love the echo saws but I think a ported 7900 would beat a ported 800. And be a bit lighter too.
Now If you could pick up a cheap 800/8000 It would be worthwhile.
The 7900 would probly stay stockish. Just need something to pull a 28-32" bar on rare occasions. You build some serious Echo's your 490s are downright mean little saws.
80cc would handle that without porting.
Thank you, try to give the underdog a fighting chance lol
