Beginning of original review.
If you are looking for a near pro-grade chainsaw for home use, this is the one. I recently purchased this saw after discovering that similar Husqvarna saws were getting poor customer reviews. Now, let me say this about the Husqvarna 240 chain saw; the Echo 310 equivalent. I was disappointed that the 240 didn't score higher with customers. I am a Husqvarna guy. I have one of their lawn tractors...love it...one of their prograde gas string trimers...love it...and one of their gas powered blowers...and love it. But, I just couldn't bring myself to buy their model 240 chain saw after reading all of the negative reviews. That's how I came to buy the Echo 310, after doing some research...and reading a lot of customer reviews.
This saw has the highest reviews of any saw that I looked at with a 14 inch bar. And, after cutting through 8 inch and 6 inch branches and many smaller branches with ease, I have to admit that I too am a very satisfied customer.
I read the instructions, filled it with 50:1 gas, Husqvarna bar lube, and cranked it per the instructions, and went at it...and in no time had made 40 to 50 cuts. The saw performed flawlessly. The little motor easily powered the chain through all of my cuts. Just make sure that you let the saw do the cutting. It was a joy to use. And, its operation was almost smokeless, if not smokeless, because as I'm writing this I don't remember any smoke.
Cons...none really. Just be aware that it's easier to fill the bar lube tank, because of it's location, using a quart bottle, rather than using a gallon bottle. A gallon of bar lube is just over $10.00 while a quart is around $4.50. The price difference might tempt you to buy more bar lube than you'll use. I made all of my cuts without having to refill the bar lube tank and still have some left.
Tip: This saw incorporates a black rubber WINTER plug THAT MUST NOT BE USED in temps above 41 degrees F, and must be used at temperatures lower than that. The saw comes with the plug in the summer mode...if you're using the saw during the colder months of the year, remove the top cover and move the plug from the summer position to the winter position. The manual says that using the plug in the winter position during the summer may cause the saw to over heat.
Highly recommended. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one, or any of their other products, if they're customer reviews are decent.
Hope this helps.
Edit...update. (11-15-2015) So far so good. I've had the saw for around 9 months now, and it's still cutting like a beaver on fire...lol. My neighbor and I just cut down two trees in his front yard. I have had to replace the chain once...since I have a tendency to stick it in the dirt...which is highly not recommended. Mother Earth will dull your chain...and soon.
One other thing. Buy the gallon jug of chain lube...it's half the price, and you'll go through a lot more than you might think. In nine months, I've used over half a gallon. At the box box stores, a gallon is a little over twice the price of two quarts...so essentially you're getting two quarts free. Chain lube at my big box store is $4.88 per quart...and less than $11.00 for a gallon...a no brainer really. And, you really don't want to run out of chain lube...that's a bad experience all the way around.
Over a period of a few months I looked at many different brands and makes of chainsaws. When I buy something I typically do my homework first with the intentions of buying something that will last for many years and not only on price. I have used many different brands of saws over the years to include Homelite, Stihl, Husqvarna and Echo. Husqvarna has been a great make of chainsaw for many years for but hesitant due to their pricing. Price does not always dictate quality. Stihl has been my go to brand for years but felt that in the past few years their quality has slipped on their more entry level equipment. They still make a great product but honestly how many homeowners will drop $500 or more on a piece of equipment they may only use a few times a year or even less. Most typical homeowners will get discouraged when they see the prices of most major makes of saws and then give in to a much less expensive craftsmen or Poulan only to have a multitude of issues and problems.
When I owned my lawn care I really only used Stihl for my small equipment. I had great luck with their products but noticed their prices started to soar and the quality was not what it once was. So I took a chance and started buying Echo equipment. It turned out that the Echo products far surpassed the Stihls with little or no breakdowns. So when I started looking at saws I naturally was attracted to echo's. I read the reviews on the 310 and most seemed to really like it so I bought one.
I used it today for the first time to cut some very large timber. With it only being a 14 inch bar I had to cut from both sides but this little saw didn't back down one bit. It did take about 8 pulls to get it started the first time but I was also starting a motor that wasn't broke in and doing so on a 30 degree day. I can't say enough about this Echo. It cut very well and had plenty of grunt to get through the white birch I was cutting. I read that this saw will take a 16 inch bar but I think I will leave the 14 on it. I believe it would be a little underpowered to handle the 16 inch bar on some hard woods. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was that there isn't any such thing as a perfect product and I have not used it enough to truly test its reliability. If it holds up as well as my other Echo products then it will be worthy of 5 stars. Time will tell.
