Chainsaw echo. Overview of the model range, instructions, test reports

Chainsaw Echo

The first mention of the Echo company dates back to 1947. Correct, then it was called Kyoritsu Noki Company Limited and was engaged in the manufacture of various agricultural implements. The first Echo chainsaw went on sale in 1963, since then dozens of chainsaw models have been developed and put into production in the concern’s design offices. The company got its current name in 1978, now Echo is one of the structural divisions of the Yamabiko concern.

Chainsaw Echo

The company’s main manufacturing facilities are located in Japan, although it must be admitted that some assembly plants have recently been relocated to China. However, this did not affect the quality of the products of this manufacturer. All devices comply with internal quality standards and are assembled under the supervision of Japanese engineers and designers. The company’s range includes more than ten models of various electric chainsaws and chainsaws. Here, too, there are quite small specimens, semi-professional and professional chainsaws are widespread.

Echo chainsaws have the widest range of applications: from minor repairs and bush trimming to professional felling. The most popular are universal models, without which it is impossible to imagine a country house or cottage.

In addition to chainsaws, we can find many other useful tools in the company’s catalogue. The Echo brand is represented on the market for agricultural equipment by cultivators, brush cutters, sprayers, pole cutters, power drills, fuel and lubricants and various accessories. The full range of Echo products can be found here: Echo Product Catalog 2018

Before you start using the Echo chainsaw, you should study the instruction manual, get acquainted with the device and the safety rules for working with chainsaws.

Kettensägen-Echo. Überblick über die Modellpalette, Anleitungen, Testberichte

Chain saw device

Safety Precautions for Echo Chainsaws:

  • Pay attention to the reliability of screw and screw connections, tighten the screws and nuts if necessary;
  • After each refueling, the chainsaw should be checked for oil and petrol stains. It is forbidden to work in violation of the tightness of fuel, oil pipes and tanks;
  • It is forbidden to refuel the Echo chainsaw when the engine is running or hot;
  • Pay attention to the correct chain tension, not only the performance of the chainsaw depends on it, but also your safety;
  • Always use personal protective equipment at work, wear sturdy shoes and close-fitting clothing;
  • To avoid injury, work while holding the chainsaw with both hands;
  • It is forbidden to saw near open sources of fire and in the rain or snow;
  • It is not allowed to work with a defective anti-vibration system. This can cause arm and back fatigue and operator injury;
  • You should not overexert yourself, it is best to take a break every 45-50 minutes;
  • For all repair work, switch off the engine and wait until it has cooled down;
  • After turning off the engine, turn on the inertia brake to stop the chain;
  • Clean the air filter regularly;
  • Store your Echo chainsaw in a clean, dry, well-ventilated place.

Initial start-up and run-in

Assembling the Echo chainsaw and first run:

  • Remove the protective cover, assemble the saw set, mount the tooth stop and put on the cover without tightening the nuts on the slots.
  • Set the correct chain tension with the adjusting screw and tighten the fastening nuts until they stop;

Important: The links of a correctly tensioned chain should not sag while the chain rotates easily on the tire without stopping or making any noise.

  • Refuel the engine, refill the automatic lubrication system with oil;
  • Make sure the chain stop brake is activated, check whether the chain comes into contact with foreign objects;
  • Start the engine, let it warm up at idle (1-2 minutes);
  • Release the chain brake and get to work.

Technical Service

Your chainsaw has a 92-stroke petrol engine that needs a good fuel mixture. For its manufacture, high-octane gasoline AI 95-1 and special motor oil for two-stroke engines should be used. The working mixture is made in a ratio of 50/XNUMX.

Kettensägen-Echo. Überblick über die Modellpalette, Anleitungen, Testberichte

Mixing ratio of fuel

The manufacturer claims that the Echo engine requires no special break-in, so no special fuel mixture is required. Chainsaw break-in is carried out on conventional fuel in a gentle mode for 7-9 hours. In this case, you should not saw thick logs and overheat the engine.

Recommended engine oils:

  • Echo JASO FD with dispenser;
  • Husqvarna HP;
  • Oleo-Mac Prosint 2T;
  • CHAMPION JASO FD;
  • STIHL HP;

Special oils with a specific viscosity index should be used to fill the automatic lubrication system. They not only increase productivity, but also extend the service life of the saw set. It is worth considering that the use of various substitutes as lubricants will lead to premature failures and the expense of repairing a chainsaw.

Owner feedback

Nikolai Astakhov, 47 years, Nizhny Novgorod

“Recently I bought a house in the village, there is no gas there – people heat the stoves. When I come in winter I have to heat the house and I love the bathhouse. Firewood is expensive to buy and why. The house also has a large garden – care is required. So I decided to buy a chainsaw. I decided not to save too much, but to buy a Japanese – and I did not lose. The Echo is a great chainsaw, light, powerful and above all versatile. I have so many different tasks and she does them all.”

Egor Stupakov, 42, Siberian Federal District

“In our area, there is no way without a good chainsaw. I used to save money and buy Chinese nouns and then throw them away after six months or a year. And so I decided to spend some money and bought an Echo chainsaw. Today I regret not having done it sooner. No defects were found during the two seasons of operation. They write that the tire is weak: nonsense, you just need to monitor the oil supply to the sawing zone and it will last a long time.

Vasily Zaitsev, 37 years old, Bryansk Oblast

“I am engaged in the repair of wooden houses, sheds, baths, we build a little. There is no way in our business without a good chainsaw. It is necessary that it be light, keep the speed and not make a lot of noise. I bought the Echo for these qualities. Basically met expectations. Of course, it was not without flaws, but they are not critical. Yes, the oil and fuel tanks are awkwardly placed, but you can survive that. But it would be worth considering to improve the design of the starter – I change the third cable.
