Ok so I didn't believe the stuff I'd heard about Echo warranty not being worth a crap. Today I took a cs352 to my dealer. It is less than a year old. I was told it's a cheap saw not meant to be used professionally. I didn't use it professionally. I'm clearing my own land. He said all professional saws have metal clutch covers and plastic covers are not warrantied. That's pure BS my ms026 has a plastic clutch cover. Now that I realize the warranty is BS I may go ahead and do the mm.
