Just bringing this up I never owned one or had any desire to get one . However maybe one of you old timers would remember probably in mid 80"s Echo came out with a twin cylinder saw . I think it was a CST 610 model aka the Evil Twin. A friend of mine had one in "yellow" sold as a John Deere .
I think he said both cylinders fired on same stroke , it had little vibration and was a bit heavy . I would imagine I don't remember if they came with a "decompression button " . Just alittle chainsaw " reminisce " here on xyz123' s thread .

I have never seen or heard of a twin cylinder chainsaw.

I wonder why it never caught on, it looks like she's a runner...

After all back together and pulling over something didnt feel right on 039 and wouldnt start. Backfired once. So starting checking.

They had sheared the key molded into flywheel. Then the fly nut stripped all its thread sand wouldnt come off. Fun fun s o b

I had to cut the freaking nut and use chisel too. Finally off. Some of the crank threads are fubarred too.

I ran a 2 friends twins in solo 100cc 110cc and echo twin.

The echo I pass on around here. Nothing to write home about. Just a heavy 60cc.

Now that solo twin was sweet.
