    Mine died today and and I'd really like to replace it. Anyone know of any place other than Ebay that I could find one? Anyone have one - that's in good working order - and want to sell it?

    I'm guessing echo doesn't make that model anymore, huh? I used one a few summers ago working for someone else and really liked it to, forgot about it and just bought 2 210's. Any perticular reason why ebay isn't a option for you? And 2 cycle equipment usually doesn't live long enough for a resale, and the used stuff that is out there is mostly junk IMO.

    I think you answered your own question...:laugh: Actually, Ebay isn't off limits, I had just already checked there.

    I used one this morning - at least I think I did as I was told it was a 261 - and it seemed less powerful. Maybe it was just less noisy?

    I think for Echo the "S" means solid drive shaft, not a cable. Not in that case though I see.

    Thanks. I kept hearing that they weren't available anymore, but apparently that just refers to walking into a dealer.

    Here is another place. Not sure of the price though, you will have to email them. Looks like the "S" means that it has a rigid steel cable. Found that at the bottom of the mayberrys link.
