    The cs-400 is one tough saw. My house trailer burned to the ground in november of 2013. Having just bought the cs-400 to replace a worn out sthil-026. After the flames were out the next day as I tried to find anything that survived fire . Both saws were side by side under my tanning bed. The bed melted on both saws the sthil was toast complete loss but low & behold the echo was solid black with soot & soaking wet. At first I figured it would be a parts saw. A week later I decided to see how bad it was hurt. To my amazement it was fine besides the smell & soot. The bulb was not even melted. I cleaned the air filter & 2 pulls later it fired right up. 2 months later & 4 or 5 cord of red & white oak & a 3 ft dia. Hickory its cutting better than the sthil ever did. Can only imagine how one the larger echo saws would have performed. Fire tested & wood proven this saw has won me over. The chain stays sharper twice as long as the sthil. For the money it cant be beat. I will be using echo saws for now on. Thank you for making such a tough & affordable product. John Liles, Redfield Ar.
