@Philbert  I like the looks of that echo cordless chainsaw you were talking about. Seen one? 
I was looking for that Kobalt one the other day. No chainsaw but other stuff was there.

That Echo electric saw is very interesting.  Would be great for cutting in the park during the months when we are under noise restrictions because of the migratory bird nonsense...
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Gonna see if we can get the dealer (that the park has an account with) to let us demo a saw for a spell.  If it lives up to expectations then the park will probably buy a couple plus some batteries.

Prop 65 just requires retailers to put up a warning that at least some products there contain substances that are known to cause cancer and/or birth defects.  Basically EVERYTHING 'causes' cancer................so the signs are basically everywhere.  I don't even see them anymore.  They're part of the landscape.....

Our HD has them in but not put out yet. The guy that runs that section offered to take me back to check one out. I declined as I didnt have a way to take and post pics for you.

He did say it was a HD deal for right now.  Later who knows. Weird IMO.

Sorry  . . . late to the thread

I was excited to see these.  I have an ECHO CS400 and like it.  Figured that they should do OK making a battery saw - probably better than a non-saw company making one, along with drills, etc.

I was confused by the exclusive Home Depot sales.  Asked around, got a lot of silence, some speculation, and finally, an answer that I have some confidence in.  A marketing rep told me today that these were designed/engineered by ECHO for exclusive sale through The Home Depot right now.  HD, or HomeDepot.com are the only one selling them, and any service would go through one of the HD rental departments.  They should become available in *selected HD stores* in a couple of weeks. *I have a dozen or more HD stores within a 25 mile radius of my house, but only one or two that I know of carry the 40V Ryobi chainsaws, so they must have certain demographics for certain products.  Otherwise, you will be able to order one from HomeDepot.com.

Pricing is $299 with 4.0 AHr battery and charger.
$199 bare tool (no battery, no charger).
$169 for extra 4.0AHr battery.  A 2.0 AHr battery will also be available.

I am somewhat disappointed that I cannot buy one from my local ECHO dealer.  I bought my other ECHO saw there.  Lack of dealer service sounds like a general lack of support, or like HD licensed the 'ECHO' name, but it is made by someone else (e.g. like 'Rigid' power tools).  They should not need the service that a two-cycle saw does, but you could still drop it and need parts.

Some people have suggested that ECHO dealers may get them eventually.  With the increased popularity of these cordless saws, I hope they do.  Has to be hard enough to compete against stores like HD on price, let alone to not have access to branded products.

Other than that, I would like to try one.  Brushless motor.  58volts, Li-ion.  ECHO brand.  Looks nice in the videos.  Heck, I would like to try all of them!

*The new, brushless version of the Oregon saw is due out this summer, and am anxious to try that as well!  Supposed to have '40% more power and 50% more torque' (not sure what the difference is).
