I'm just a firewood guy. But if I do have to drop something the ported 590 will get the nod most of the time. You can do the 372xp wrap on the 600 series echos with out much work and there only like $20.
Yeah I remember our conversation earlier in this thread. I’ve only read a few times someone has done it. I’m just now laying out my options since then. I’ve bought em a few more saws and now I’m debating if I should get echos new 70cc saw or stihl Ms 462. Love my echos but I like different brands. The makita ea7300 was interesting.

20191221_163623.jpg If your looking at the 7300 you might as well swing for the 7910. I love mine in the big stuff.
That said if I could only have one saw it would be a 462 with 20 and 28 inch bars. Only ran one a few times but it's a very strong and light saw.

I looked at the 462. Light for a 76cc saw. But if echo has a comparable saw I might want to wait and consider. The only reason I never bought any makita saw was no dealer support near me. I can buy them local but acme tools doesn’t do any service so I’m hesitant to pull the trigger. Also, does the 7910 handle 36 in bar easy or am I stretching the limits

My saw in the pic is wearing 32. I'm sure it would pull a 36 but the oiler is about maxed out keeping up with the 32. If the new echo won't significantly outrun my ported 590 I'm not interested. Will have to see what they put out.

Good to know James. I’m hopeful the new echo will be better. I’m going to my dealer tomorrow to get my 501p retuned and new filter and rubber installed so I’m asking them about the new model and get a test of that saw in person when the echo rep is visiting this summer. Bge41, that cs-355t is awsome. Starts even in below 0’ weather and just won’t quit. Worth it

Glad you like it! Yeah the 730x should be here in the next 6/7 months and have 25/30% more power then a 620p. Looks like the carb it low in the saw with some HD air filter.

Yes I posted it a few days ago I really need to make some room but I like it, good saw great numbers and balances well.

Yea I’d like to see some it always helps having references
20191207_111622.jpg 20191207_111532.jpg ^^first attempt: Cut real fast, didn't last long in oak. 20191214_205606.jpg 20191214_205708.jpg ^^Same chain same aggressive angles. Just brought all the cutters back to match the shortest one. Might tinker with this one as a play chain. Will never see hard wood again. 20200119_153325.jpg 20200119_153736.jpg ^^One I'm working on now. Trying for working angles so I can run it in the woods and have it last a full tank before needing touched up.
DISCLAIMER: I'm just a hack with a double bevel file. I need alot more practice but you have to start somewhere.

You can see why... but this saw (590) has lived its whole life without a filter cleaning and belongs to a tree service company.
