New Echo saw

Has anyone used the new Echo top handle limbing saw? I think its the CS-260. It has a 26cc engine with a 12" bar. I handled one at the shop I use and it is ridiculously light. Just wondering if anyone has used it on a job yet. Curious as to what kind of power it has in such a tiny package.

I use echo saws exclusively for everything 26 inches and smaller. You got a good little saw. Echo's are cheap, reliable and have plenty of power. And, parts are easy to find and cheap. I use echo saws every day, all day long and I have no complaints!

Had a climber who would brought his echo and we put it o the test. 2 trees about the same size he used his echo. Then We let him use our Stihl 200t. Next day he had a 200t. he literally said " Tommy, I was fooling myself with that echo."
