About - Echo CS-352-16

The Echo CS-352-16 is part of the chain saw test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, chain saw models like the CS-352-16 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Cutting speed:
How fast a saw cut through a 10-inch-square oak beam.

Consists of kickback intensity, the potential for burn due to inadvertent contact with the muffler, and storage safety--how well protected the cutting chain is from accidental contact during storage.

Ease of use:
Based on engine-starting convenience (the average number of pulls to start), primer and choke location and operation, and the ease of adjusting the cutting chain’s tightness, checking and adding fluids, and accessing the air filter and spark plug.
