    Exactly right. I have some "cheap Chinese junk tools". and I have some good Chinese tools. Just like anyone else they can make good high quality stuff, but when you buy "bargain basement prices" too good to be true priced tools.. what in he!! do you expect? Good stuff?.. not likely at those prices. I am old enough to remember back in the late 50's and early 60's when we started seeing "made in japan" on cheap consumer items. And the phrase "made in japan" was a synonym for "junk". I don't think it is now.

    Yeah, sometimes a good deal is not such a good deal. LOL My dad has a little Stihl ms180 and that thing has done him good.

    I agree that the Chinese make good products when following a spec given to them by outside engineers and the products last just fine.ie:Milwaukee, DeWalt,Makita.. The problem is that they then take that spec and cut a ton of cost out of it and sell it out the back door and it's often called Chinese Junk. You can get it both ways in china. Nice thing about these forums, You can hear all the horror stories b4 you buy.

    I have the same Echo, mine is the cs370, just a little bigger. I have owned it for 5 years and it is great. And I bought mine off Ebay for less than $200.

    I owned an Echo 452vls for over 20 years. They make a great product!!
