Recently, chainsaws have undergone significant changes in the development of their technology. Chainsaws with advanced features are now available both in the market and on the internet. These chainsaws are used for all sorts of cutting needs, depending on the various sizes they come in. The reduction in weight with increased power has made them popular in recent years too.

In this article, I’m going to review Echo CS-590 Chainsaw.

About the product

It comes with a powerful 59.8cc professional-grade, 2-stroke engine which provides outstanding performance.

This chainsaw will make your work easy as it comes with a decompression valve for easier starting and an automatic, adjustable clutch-driven oiler for reduced oil consumption. It also has an easy-to-access heavy-duty two-piece air filter for easy cleaning and G-Force Engine Air Precleaner for reduced filter maintenance.

I like the power it comes with, which makes my work easy. It’s also affordable and very lightweight. The additional features are a great bonus for someone who is looking to upgrade from a normal chainsaw to a better one with some extra features.

The most noticeable thing about this chainsaw is how powerful it actually is, especially when you consider its size! Although not as small as some of the other saws available on the market, it can still be considered portable because of its low weight and carry handle which allows you to move it with ease around your garden or yard if required. I have had no trouble with it though, as the weight of the chainsaw actually helps with stability during use. I like that it has a decompression valve too as this makes it really easy to start. Also, with its automatic oiler and air filter system, I don’t have to worry about any maintenance which is great for me as I’m not particularly mechanically minded and simply want a chainsaw that works when you need it to. The only thing I dislike about this chainsaw is how rough it can be on my hands after using it for longer periods of time, but using leather work gloves solves this issue. For the price and features offered by this saw, I would definitely recommend Echo CS-590 Chainsaw to others!


In conclusion, the Echo CS-590 Chainsaw has been a great purchase for me as it works well and comes with some great features that you would only usually find on saws that are much more expensive. On top of this, it is very affordable which makes it a must-buy if you need a chainsaw for occasional use. I’m also surprised by how powerful it actually is, despite its small size!
