These saws are often overlooked, post up what you have. I will identify each as some may not be familiar with them. First up is an Echo 900:



750 EVL, JD 70 and Echo 900:



JD 66SV and Echo 610, both twin cylinders:



JD 80:



JD 800 (same as Echo 8000):

I would love to find a 610 or 66v if any one has something they would part with. Mostly looking for the Deere 66v as I am a Deere guy.
There out there. Seen many over the years. The 610 is more common
than the Deere 66SV but i have seen quite a few of those on the auction
site as well. Be patient and one will come along.
I have both versions and they are a kool saw for sure but under powered
for a 60 cc saw. But they are a smooth as hell. I actually bought both of
mine off CL a few years back.

Since Lee and others have made this into a big cube I will throw down all my big cube Echo cards into the pile and push all my chips in on this one

I ran a very nice example this past weekend and, although it was no powerhouse, I didn't really think it was underpowered at all for a 60cc saw of its time period.
I also didn't think it was greatly heavier than any of the 60cc offerings from the competition of the time.

Need to get some pictures.. but have a 452VL, 750EVL, CS440, CS330T. Rumored to have a JD 70V coming. Also have a JD 55V I'm going through for an older gentlemen I work with. He loves that saw but I feel the 20" B&C setup is a bit much... he's happy so why question!

The 750 and 452 are solid machines... real workhorses on the farm growing up and they never let us down.

An Echo CS670. I love the way this thing runs. Also had a 610 twin. Wish I still had it, but then I wish I still had a lot of things.

I have one Echo chainsaw right now (missed the 610EVL that was nearby on CL). Little CS302S. No pics yet. So far I've just cleaned it up a bit, replaced the starter cord, and inspected the P/C. P/C look pretty good, compression 'feels' good, and she fires on a prime.

Just need to round up a throttle lock, AF cover nut/screw, a handguard, throttle interlock lever, an outer bar plate, inner/outer fuel lines, and rebuild the carb. Will probably replace the crank seals (if I can get 'em) just for PM. Most of the parts are still available from what I've seen.

Cute little bugger. All mag, and pretty robust. A bit funky (especially the fuel line setup, 'backwards' kill switch orientation, and muffler placement). Will put a 14" b/c on it and give it to the Mrs.:D

Had a 452 I tuned up for a friend ,ran great, idled smooth, one of the easy startin saw I had my hands on. Maybe one half a pull and it lit up. Got ready to take it to him the next day and tryed to start it again,and crap. Hydro locked. I got lucky, was just the o rings on the oil adjust assembly instead of case gasket. Easy fix.

Oh, and the super clean 702 I sold this summer.

Efco not Echo

This is the only green I have. NOS not that it is really special at all as I think they are still on the shelves at least I know where several more can be had new.

CS56

Bit optimistic with a 24" on it but I bought it from a guy that bought it new and added that bar to it. Also have a JD 16" bar
This one is an Efco not Echo. Really nice saws, picked mine up for $25.00.
I do have a CS-520 that I like and newly acquired JD40V (CS-351VL) and a CS440 that is missing the clutch cover. Unlike Sawtroll I like Echos, but I'm not a lumberjack.
