Yup, the 3400 is a great saw!

My favorite of the 2 pictured is the 350. Both are muffler modded, 4 degrees timing advance & re-tuned. The 350 is a BEAST!

The anti vibe has long since been flogged out due to it being a full time work saw between 2007 - 2015, but I love that saw. Its old school Echo!

From cold: choke on - 2 pulls & it pops - Choke off - 1 pull & it screams!

I have a big stihl as well as the little top handle echo

I think echo and shindaiwa make the best chainsaws in the world these days

The stihl is good, but the early 90s one it replaced was better

I like Echo, Stihl, Zenoah & Makita/Dolmar and have owned several of each. Zenoah cops a lot of undeserved criticism on the net, just like Echo. But I like them! They're reliable work saws.

The Makita & Stihl plastics let them down for full time work in Adelaide though. Lots of palm work here & the acid in the palms eats the plastic clutch covers. But, if you don't cut palms, you'd be hard pressed to find a better saw!

Yeah, I own a 7 year old Honda HRU216 self propelled mower. Made in China - It's a cracker.

The new emission's laws come into effect on 1/7/19; you won't be able to buy any of the cheap 2 stroke outdoor gear from shops after that. Shops haven't been able to buy it from wholesalers since 1/7/18.

It's been illegal to import it since 1/1/18, but the Ebay sellers are still doing it, so maybe there's a loop hole?

Allpower went out of business recently, so the Aust distribution network for Echo was shifted to Briggs & Stratton.
