    Stopped by our local Echo dealer and was told the 310 is no longer.
    He had 1 left so I grabbed it , just because.

    Nothing really to brag about other than it's extremely lite, 8.8 lbs.

    Did a muff mod and retune before I even started it.
    I do volunteer trail maintenance in our National forest so this will be an easy pack saw.

    Makes sense to get rid of the 310 since the 352 is the exact same saw with more power for a few bucks more. The mm 310 I did was a good cutting saw but a 352 is just a better starting point.

    The cs 400 here 10 years ago was 400 bucks with case, gas can and a hat. We get so ripped off here. For the echo saws when i bougjt my cs 520. I had it figured that every 10cc was $100 bucks. My 520 was almost 600 with tax. About 500 befor.

    I guess I won't miss the CS-310 since I got the CS-346, Craftsman 2.0, Stihl 009L, and the CS-361P.

    I would be screaming about the 20% sales tax rate, but that's me.

    Love me some Echo CS346.
