Some may already know that Echo has been building alot of Shindawa's chains saws for a while. Echo's Pas Paddle attachment is a Shindawa. Got word this week that they will be intergrating more and more of each other's products into each other's lines in the coming future. I'm guessing it has to do with Shindawa having issues with 2 cycle meeting epa numbers. Same reason Husky bought out Redmax. Should be interesting.
