4 Star Rating from Popular Mechanics Magazine (CS-590 Timber Wolf; Chain Saws)

Echo CS 590 "Timber Wolf"

Ranking:



Price: $400

Engine size: 59.8 cc

Weight (fueled): 18 lb

Bar length: 20 in.



Likes: The Timber Wolf excels at one difficult job: bucking (crosscutting) big logs. It easily gnawed its way through a frozen cherry tree that measured 26 inches across. We liked that gutsy performance and were pleased to find the saw starts easily, despite its big engine. Press its compression-release valve and two or three yanks are all it takes to make the Timber Wolf howl to life.



Dislikes: This is more an observation than a complaint. The Timber Wolf is a lot of cutting capability for the money, but it's also bigger and heavier than the other saws. We started this test with Echo's feisty bantamweight, the CS500P ($449 to $469), a great little machine and the lightest 50-cc saw in the industry. But a saw in that price range was no match for the Husqvarna or Stihl. The Timber Wolf proved to be more competitive. If you want to get close to the Stihl's or Husqvarna's cutting ability, you'll need to move up to a much bigger saw.
