Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality saw vs price First of all, that saw was at an unbeatable price.........it worth to check . I ate a lot of saw dust with that chainsaw and i presently own 2 of them. For the last 10 years that is the saw i have used to cut my 6 annual cord of wood. If you want to put a 16 in. bar, it gives you about 10% more power...... so almost like a 45cc. Above that, add---Quality + Good Price + Light weight + Reliable + Easy to work on + Trouble free if used with common sense....Don t hesitate---- I HIGHLY RECOMMAND that product--WITH NO HESITATION .......Thanks HD for their courtesy service.... and to stand behind their product......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo Saw This is the best saw I've ever owned! I've had a Stihl that wouldn't start in the cold, but this saw starts every time. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me I have never used a chainsaw before moving from Toronto to NS and buying a house on a acre and a half.. Bought this model at Home Depot and read the instructions and the manual. It started easy, cut easy,and is lightweight. So no issues. I had a fire just like a NS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw More expensive than competitors but worth it. Lots of power and easy starting even in cold weather. Lighter and easier to use than my older Pioneer Farmsaw.Just because it does not come with a bottle of bar oil does not make this saw deserve a poor rating as the previous reviewer stated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Chain Saw This is a very good chain saw. Powerful and easy to start. Although more expensive than other make products, but it worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warranty with Home Depot I already had an Echo chainsaw for 32 years,so I am a fan of course there are things that get dirty or wear out. It is all a learning curve. After doing hours of reviews, You Tube videos and store visits for the big three makers I decided on another Echo and decided to go with a lighter weight saw. The 40.2 is a great saw for weight and your arms and body will thank you at the end if the job. Starts exactly how the instructions say. I have put ten tanks of gas through it and have cut and limbed maple up to 14 inch diameter with no issues. Great warranty, full refund after 30 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw Picked one of these up today! Got it home put it together and went and cut 3/4 cord or wood out back! Ran like a champ! One put start once it was warmed up! Never stalled or lagged when cutting! Thing is a beast! Couldn’t be happier with this saw!

Hey I just bought this saw today, got it home and I noticed that the bar says 16” on it. On this webpage, in the store and on the box it says it should be an 18” bar. I’m just wondering if I can get the proper bar and chain. 

Asked by: Dylan99
Mine came with an 18” bar. But a 16” would work also.

After 1 year of no use, now the chain saw wont start. The engine tries to run, gas is in the saw, the choke is engaged but no luck starting. Removed the spark plug and noticed tons of gasoline on it, clean it, still no luck.. Suggestions appreciated..

Asked by: ChainSawNewbe
Hello, Generally when the plug is covered in fuel it indicates that the engine is flooded. This is a longer conversation so please call us toll free at (877)324-6665 and we can help you out. Your other option is to go to your local ECHO dealer. You can find them by typing in your postal code in our store locator http://www.echo.ca/Store-Locator
