One year later and now the insight of time spent with one of these Echo CCS-58V 4AH saws has brought me some subtle but important points about the saw. Basically I trashed it, rebuilt it, and am learning to get along with it.

Point One: This had to be the idea that the battery button was/is like the primer bulb. That took a while to figure out and had me pissed/worried/feeling stupid. Mainly felt stupid because I didnt appreciate Li as a flammable and missed a Safety Idea about discharge rates.

Point Two: This echo works best if it is considered a polesaw type cutter, inasmuch as its running a 16" picco type chain. This will also save you from bending the blade, like I did, and possibly ripping out the oiler in anger, as I also did.

Point Three: It turns out parts are available by internet, mine came out of Fla for some reason, and there are actually not many parts. 2 bearings move, the clutch is hollowed out because it not needed.  Trigger and chain.  There is an oil pump.

Point Four: The machine reads torque, electrically, and temps maybe too since they are an expression of energy, midrun shutdowns can be related to things like overtight new chains, also less that lubricity in the oil. Also if the chain is not oiling well. I  think this a sensitivity.  In fact, I think some slickum additive for the oil would increase the performance window that the protection chips are set to allow.

That is all
