This guy should make a new video using new saws. Chainsaw technology has taken leaps and bound since this video was made.

Have three Echo saws, from 2 to 30 years old, and all are excellent machines.  I see no reason that Echo saws should not be considered for any serious user, except perhaps real full time loggers for whom the very best Husqvarna and Stihl machines might be worth considering.

Stihl don't make heavy duty pro saws? Husqurvana don't make domestic low usage chain saws? What a biased video! Husky and Stihl Working make great saws all around. Why not show case them both?

Obviously biased toward the Husqvarna line, 2 small crappy Stihl saws only? Stihl Rules…..anyone knows that.
