A yellow 8000!  Looks interesting to me.  Maybe better with a pop-up and some creative work on the jug.  It the brake lever on those also made out of the same plastic as Barbie dolls?

I'm trading for a used JD 800 at the moment.  So I got a question for you guys that have run these Echo 8000 and John Deere 800V.

Will they pull a 24" or 32" bar bar in rip cuts quartering dried hardwood elm etc?

I have sold all my 122cc 084 and 118cc 3120 and 166 and sold one 066 so far. I have 1 066 woods ported for doing the duties now with 24" and 32" and haven't had to use it yet this year.  I'm thinking of selling it if the 800 can do the duties. What do you guys think?

It should handle a 24 inch bar well ;)

My JD 800V showed up today.  ;D   No card in camera so no pics to share yet.

Al I am going to put a 460 rescue handle on it for the comfort of my hands. So you can have the D-ring that is on this puppy.

Got 24" original bar in route and double dawgs  to finish it out.

The MS460 rescue handle is so much more comfortable to pull this puppy over with  :o.

Hi Fella's,
Please allow me to introduce myself, Im Sharkey and this is my first post. 

I noticed the pics of the John Deere model 800v saw and am looking for information on it.  I have one too and see it is a rebadged Echo 8000.  When I noticed your pictures I thought to myself; 'these have to be a fairly rare saw'?  I have not seen any others prior to yours.  Not to be confused with the horizontal cylinder John Deere / Echo - 80EV or 750EVL. 

My saw came with a service manual that is dated August of 1987 and the manual is labeled "Horicon" Works?  Seems as though the saw could have been released as a John Deere model before the Echo model?  The serial number on mine is M0800VX-100238.  The serial plate reads "For Deere & Company - Made In Japan".  I bet the 'Made in Japan' label went over like a lead brick at the JD dealers back in 1987... 

Does anyone know when the Echo 8000 was first released?  I will try to get a few pics of mine up for you to see.

Thank you,
Sharkey

I just got my JD from the original owner. So I dont know anything about them. 

All I know if the JD 80cc and the 505 82cc can do what I need, my woods ported 066 and mS660 will be sold or traded. Time will tell.

Would be interesting to see what you dig up on the JD versions though.

Sure wish they had used yellow on the clutch covers too.

I really wasn't impressed my Echo 8000 at all, the throttle feels disconnected, the saw doesn't like to rev and I didn't find much difference at all after I ported it. I flogged it on ebay, my saw was the second video. I was so disappointed in this saw, I almost quit porting. And then the next Dolmar 7900 I did turned out to be the best saw I ever made.....

Hi Car,
Sorry you didnt like that Echo of yours.  It sure was pretty.  Thought about trying to win it but have a couple.  When you told me you ran them transfers down into the case, I just knew you were not going to be happy with it.  You lost the low end right off the bat, right?   I made the same mistake on the first one of those I did, ended up with too much charge turbulence using that windowed full circle piston.
