What Makes the Echo CS-3510 Ideal for the Homeowner?

With a 34cc engine and a dry weight of just over 8 lbs., the Echo can generate a lot of power without fatiguing the user. To break it all down, Echo gives us these figures: the CS-3510 gives 20% better cutting performance, 12% more power, and it weighs in at 0.6 lbs lighter.

What those figures are relative to remains unclear, but the intended takeaway is that this is one lightweight and powerful chainsaw.

But, this Echo CS-3510 also comes chock full of features to make operation smooth and efficient. Echo’s i-30 starter makes pull-starting this chainsaw easier by 30%, according to the company. Translucent fuel and oil tanks ensure that you’re easily aware of how much you’ve got in the tank at any given point.

A 3-point spring system keeps vibrations under control, and Echo has included a throttle lock-out and a momentary stop switch for safety purposes.

An air injection air cleaner separates dust and debris from the air, resulting in longer intervals between routine maintenance of the air filter.


The Echo CS-2510 retails for $259.99. Though its designed with homeowner use in mind, as evidenced by the 5-year residential warranty, Pros are still protected with a 1-year commercial warranty.
