I have a complement of echo yard stuff with most of it being gray. One is red.

I like them all and never any trouble.

Echo PB-2400, SRM-2100, SRM-2400, HC-1500-2E, & TC-210

  All are 52 x 38mm bore and stroke.  8000p has the largest carb and the smallest combustion chamber.  John Deere 800v would be in this class. 
  1990's gray T1E are wide combustion chamber, loose squish and smaller carb.  The latest one out with the black handle support comes with the new quad port cylinder but even a smaller carb?  HDA-153 shows in the schematic at 15.8 venturi.  They have been in production since 1986.

Thank you so much Sharkey that is what I was looking for!

Warning Tim. They are heavy. Feel like a 066 660 weight in my hands. 

Anyone have the actual PHO weight of the  8000 dry?    OEM specs 16.5lbs PHO

Thanks C4F, not intending to get into them just trying to learn something about another orange saw!

Yep. 16.5 with no bar, chain, clutch cover, fuel, oil or extra air...  Only plastic is the top cover.

Wow, given that it would be like lugging around a 3120! Probably would top 22 pounds ready to cut even with a 24 inch bar and chain.

Not a saw you want to carry around walking. Be like lugging a 660 with 24" ready to cut.  Now if hauling in truck to the wood lot to do cuts is fine. 

Like I said this one I have is a exceptional  cutter.  Has the older carb with some work done to it by another member here. Also have NIB newer carb on hand if it was needed.  Took it all in trade on racing equipment when I got out of it.
