it is probably just plain gutless :) lots of the little echo's were like that from that era. the cs310 they build today feels just like running one of those 280's. you have to sort of hold it up off the wood and easily feed it, otherwise that chain stops. too badyou couldn't find a 1/4" pitch drum, chain and bar for it. seems like they were meant to run it as it makes the saw feel a lot more powerful.

Described to a T.  Starts on 1 pull and 2 at most.   

Was bought new at the local stihl echo dealer I used to get my parts from. 

Not my cup of tea and a shelf rider it will be.
