New bar on it. Wife uses the 400 now. She pinched the bar and chain didn't want to go roundy round anymore.

We have a deal, the 310 and 400 is hers and the 490 and 800 are mine.

We like echo

I like Husky’s but not the price. I have a 490 and a 590 Echo, plus their biggest brush saw. I bought the 590 for general use around my property, and the smaller saw a couple of years later for doing property lines. Yet it's become the saw that I use most, partly because it's light but mostly because it cost less so better to be bouncing around in the box in the bed of the truck.

I plan to pick up their electric saw. I could keep it behind the seat without worrying about gas leaking, and there is no warm up time if I just want to cut a tree out of the road.

I here you on the gas leaks. I like Husky's too. But if the tank gets pressurized in the sun or hot truck mine smell gassy. They ate oldish. Maybe the newer saws are better. Good idea on the battery saw. How do you think the batteries hold up in the cold.

Their stoneage simple design is kinda nice sometimes.

I thought about a battery operated one to keep in the bed box for a quick cut on a tree on the road. Saves having to grab gas and saw.

If the batteries are like the ones in our jump boxes, I wouldn't be worried about it. I don't know though, that's also one of my concerns.

Here in MI, my trucks sit out in the cold. Each ones has one of those compact jump boxes and after winter, still at 90% and last for a jump. Had to jump over our dump truck with a 460. Last charged was last fall sometime. Ole girl fired right up and box was still at 89%.

Batteries have come along way

Grand L3540 ,724 loader, bucket, grapple and now forks also! And just for OP.. a pool!
I have a Dewalt battery one, works pretty well but its a smaller one, 12" bar. Its on my tractor all the time. Problem is is just a gravity oil feed if you dont empty it after use it all leaks out.
I have an echo 501P that works great for me.. good size and lots of power!

I keep an extra gallon of water in the truck all winter. (2 gallons in summer) I throw a blanket over it at night and as long as I bring it in on weekends or times when I don't use the truck daily it doesn't freeze very badly. The battery should be fine since it will be in the cab . Like my skilsaw, I probably will take it out for safety reasons anyways.
