  • Best Saw on the Market

    I was very impressed with the 355T.  As a tree guy, I thought it was well thought out.  I especially like the wrist support in the handle.  It had more than enough power.  I passed the saw around to ten of my Asplundh crews so I got the opinion of about 30 guys.  They all really liked it.  I don't know how this saw will hold up, but I have climbed with Husky's and Stihl's for 20+ years and I think this is the best saw on the market.

  • No Complaints

    Thus far I have absolutely no complaints with your saw.  Granted, I am a consultant and haven't used it extensively, but I have been impressed with its performance considering I have always been partial to Stihl's MS-200T.  Your saw is lightweight, durable and powerful enough to tackle the jobs I've used it on to date.  It's been ideal for my use.

  • My Go-To Saw

    Working for a municipality, I need durable and long-lasting equipment.  From 100 degree days to days below zero, the new ECHO CS-355T topper is definitely my go-to saw.

  • Perfect For the Job

    In addition to being a professional arborist for five years, I am also a homeowner and often need a small chain saw to limb up a tree, cut one down or prune a small bush.  The CS-355T is perfect for the job.  It's very comparable to the Stihl 020T chain saw.  It takes very little effort to start and idles smoothly.  Perhaps one drawback is that it seems to have less power than the Stihl  model.  Overall, it's a great chain saw - highly recommended!

  • Well balanced and easily operated with one hand

    I purchased a CS 355T arborist saw to reduce fatigue while limbing and brush cutting. I usually use an Echo 680, which has proven to be an excellent saw for larger wood and has been problem-free. The CS 355T is well balanced and easily operated with one hand. I was particularly pleased with the power and chain speed in a saw with a power head of less than 8 pounds. Having used chainsaws for 50 plus years I find vibration to be fatiguing. The CS 355T is well isolated and remarkably vibration free. The fuel capacity is sufficient to allow operation of the saw for a reasonably long period of time. and won't leave you stuck in a tree needing to fill the tanks. It is a great saw for the price and very competitive with any European saw of equal displacement. A particularly nice feature is the ease of starting. Once the priming bulb is full it generally starts with two pulls when cold. With the motor hot one pull gets it running.
