    Found some big ash, had a friend try the hybrid today. Pulled a lot better than I was expecting given the port timing. Think it still has a good bit left in it.



    His 590 I ported 24"bar with a fresh chain.

    Do the 620 carb and coil make difference on a ported 590? My ported said he thinks it would pick up some more with those parts.

    For the 180$ investment... probably not.

    The 620 coil is unlimited and has 8* more advance than the 590/600. The 620 carb still has the bypass nozzle so it won't lean out fully. The bore difference in the carb is not huge.

    Me, swap out the bypass nozzle in the carb, advance timing a bit. And let it bounce off the limiter. 5$ in parts, file the key and same performance vs 180$ for a coil and carb.

    Swapped in unlimited coil, and larger 620 carb. Seemed to pick up a bit.

    That was a very long 108 pages... but I’ve made it. I have a 620pw about 8 tanks through. Already MM, air cleaner block and limiter caps done as per the flow bench testing. If I can find some time and my dremel kit I’ll stop it down, delete the base gasket clean up any flow restrictions and maybe widen the exhaust a tad. Don’t know if I’ll fully port it however unless someone has some numbers for me.

    Hey guys. If you want videos I’ll be up north on the 4th of July cutting up some trees near my camper. CS-620p, cs-501p and a cs-303t. Use them all for tree work. I’ll post some vids. The 620 is new 2016 model stock. Love the idea of a MM on it. Thinking of a port job on my 501p thou.

    We like vids. Don't mind the chain that needs touched up and fat fire wood tune.

    Upload to YouTube and share the link. That's the easiest way

    Be careful get the bar tip into the log behind the one your cutting. I might have some videos of the ported 590 tomorrow. Got some big stuff to clean up at a local home builders new property. 20180804_143122.jpg 20180804_143144.jpg

    Just read through about half this thread, very interesting and exciting info on the CS 590 for sure!
    I bought mine new two years ago, had a horrid experience with my "dealer" I purchased it through--- Sratin's Powersports sports in Greenville TX. First.... When I bought the saw, they were unable to get the saw to start. I trusted my instincts and purchased it anyways, spent an hour at home fiddling with it before it would kick off. Turns out, the air box was set to winter and I bought it in the heat of Texas July. I got screwed on the five year warranty, the sales agent registered me as commercial (I didn't find this out until last month), really don't know if I have any hope of getting that straightened out. Not that it matters I guess, I've had a knack with fixing two stroke motors since I was in junior high. None the less, Sartins no longer honors any Echo warranties as they no longer carry Echo products.

    It's been a good saw until this summer where it has been finicky starting. Sometimes it fires off fine, some days I pull on it till my arm is ready to fall off, to no avail. It has MAYBE ten hours run time, could it be about time to change the plug and tweak the carb? I haven't touched any adjustments since I was under the impression I had a warranty for five years and did not want to do anything to void it. But since the sales agent swindled me out of that... I'm on my own with it.
    The air filter is still white as can be, and when it does start it runs like a scalded banshee!
    Any thoughts?

    Great thread guys. Found a treasure trove of black locust so just got my birthday present. A CS-620s. Was hoping to get it for $520 price the dealer quoted last month. Turns out that Echo has a 15% sale going on. Got it for $457! Fantastic feel and weight compared to comparable (or much more expensive Stihls). Could not justify not getting this saw. Put a tank and half through it tonight on that black locust and am very happy with it. Cuts like butter on everything up to the 3 foot thick horizontal section. (I was getting tired and it had been raining off and on.) Cant wait to cut more tomorrow.
