    Luckily my new to me 281xp that's takes that mount. I think a 18 for the echo is a better choice.

    It runs flawlessly and not much plastic on it. Always starts.

    Stocky little things they are.

    My 500vl and 315.. 20191022_095347.jpg 20191022_095251.jpg
    Would love to compare the electronic/points ignition difference in them.

    The boy loves the 315 20180527_090333.jpg

    That's a 20" bar on mine. Chain loop is 3/8" pitch, .050 gauge, and 70 drive links.

    The mid 70's to mid 80's Echos are solid, gutsy saws. The only weak point was the electronic EVL ignitions in some cases. Regardless, they were equipped with all the features. VL's, in many cases, with additional manual pumps and external oiler and idle adjust. I run 452, 701, 702 and 750's whenever I can. Built to last longer than forever.

    A CS-500VL getting it done this past summer. Full comp, semi 3/8's on a 16" UXL mount. Stud shims are cut from coils of extension springs. Previous owner from the mill ran a 24" skip. No problem. The oil pump design was common throughout much of the series from the 302's all the way up to the 6-cube offerings. Gushers.
