Echo classes it’s X-series as pro-series, the gents that climb & I have heard speak of them say they are great little$400 for a pro climbing saw...
Let me know what you can get for those prices please.
Or are you talking used? Which is still cheap for a MS 200 or 201
saw & yes they can be had for $400 or less if you get the 15% off during dealer days.
I don’t climb but have a 2511t & love it. The saw has been reliable & rugged enough to bounce around in the pickup, tractor & Gator.
ECHO chainsaws provide long lasting performance whether pruning limbs, cutting firewood or felling a tree. Look at top and rear handle saws to find what fits your job.
