ECHO introduced the CS-490 for the large landowner, farmer/rancher and firewood cutter markets. The ECHO CS-490 is available in 16”, 18” and 20” bar lengths for $349.99.

The CS-490 features a 50.2cc two-stroke engine, a dual-post chain brake handle and G-Force Engine Air Pre-cleaner. It also features an adjustable clutch-driven oiler and an air filter with tool-less access along with a magnesium crankcase.

The CS-490 weighs only 10.6 lbs with a vibration-reduction system reduces operator fatigue. Easy start-ups (hot or cold) are facilitated by a reduced-effort starter.
