RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
A. Kickback Safety Precautions for Chain Saw Users
WARNING!
1. With a basic understanding of kickback, you
can reduce or eliminate the element of surprise.
Sudden surprise contributes to accidents.
KICKBACK may occur when the nose or tip of the
guide bar touches an object, or when the wood
closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut.
2. Keep a good firm grip on the saw with both hands,
the right hand on the rear handle, and the left
hand on the front handle, when the engine is
running. Use a firm grip with thumbs and fingers
encircling the chain saw handles. Tip contact in some cases may cause a lightning fast
reverse REACTION, Kicking the guide bar up and
back towards the operator.
Pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide
bar may push the guide bar rapidly back towards the
operator.
Either of these reactions may cause you to lose control of the saw which could result in serious personal
injury.
A firm grip will help you reduce kickback and
maintain control of the saw. Don’t let go.
3. Make sure that the area in which you are cutting is
free from obstructions. The Kick Guard® device is not installed on the guide
bar when you purchase your ECHO chain saw.
The Kick Guard® can be used in a majority of cutting
operations, and is especially recommended for beginners, homeowners, or chain saw novices.
Most cutting operations can be accomplished with the
Kick Guard® in place.
Do not let the nose of the guide bar contact a log,
branch, or any other obstruction which could be hit
while you are operating the saw.
4. Cut at high engine speeds.
5. Do not overreach or cut above shoulder height.
6. Follow manufacturer’s sharpening and
maintenance instructions for the saw chain.
Do not rely exclusively upon the safety devices built
into your saw. 7. Only use replacement bars and chains specified
by the manufacturer or the equivalent.
As a chain saw user, you should take several steps to
keep your cutting jobs free from accident or injury.
B. Other Safety Precautions
1. Do not operate a chain saw with one hand! Serious
injury to the operator, helpers, bystanders, or any
combination of these persons may result from onehanded operation. A chain saw is intended for two-handed use.
2. Do not operate a chain saw when you are fatigued.
7. Keep all parts of your body away from the saw
chain when the engine is running.
8. Before you start the engine, make sure that the
saw chain is not contacting anything.
3. Use safety footwear, snug-fitting clothing and
protective gloves. Wear
eye, hearing, and head protection devices.
9. Carry the chain saw with the engine stopped,
the guide bar and saw chain to the rear, and the
muffler away from your body.
4. Use caution when handling fuel. Move the chain saw at least 3 m (10 feet) from the
fueling point before starting the engine.
5. Do not allow other persons to be near the chain saw
when starting or cutting with the chain saw. Keep bystanders and animals out of the work area.
10. Do not operate a chain saw that is damaged,
improperly adjusted, or not completely and
securely assembled. Be sure that the saw chain
stops moving when the throttle control trigger is
released.
11. Shut off the engine before setting the chain saw
down.

6. Do not start cutting until you have a clear work
area, secure footing, and a planned retreat path
from the falling tree.
2
12. Use extreme caution when cutting small size brush
and saplings because slender material may catch
the saw chain and be whipped toward you or pull
you off balance.
13. When cutting a limb that is under tension, be alert
for spring-back so that you will not be struck when
the tension in the wood fibers is released.
14. Keep the handles dry, clean, and free of oil or fuel
mixture.
17. All chain saw service, other than items listed in
the Instruction manual maintenance instructions,
should be performed by competent service
personnel. (For example, if improper tools are used to remove
the flywheel or if an improper tool is used to
hold the flywheel in order to remove the clutch,
structural damage to the flywheel could occur and
could subsequently cause the flywheel to burst.)
18. When transporting your chain saw, use the
appropriate guide bar scabbard.
15. Operate the chain saw only in well ventilated
areas.
19. Spark arrestor mufflers approved to SAE Standard
J335 are standard on ECHO chain saws to reduce
the possibility of forest fires.
Do not operate the chain saw with a loose or
defective muffler. Do not remove the spark
arrestor screen.
16. Do not operate a chain saw in a tree unless you
have been specifically trained to do so.
WARNING
During operation, the muffler or catalytic muffler and surrounding cover become hot.
Never suspend the saw on a lanyard with the engine running.
Always use the saw from the right-hand side of your body – NEVER from the left side.
Always wear proper safety clothing to protect your lower body from sharp saw chain and
hot muffler.
• Always keep exhaust area clear of flammable debris during transportation or when storing,
otherwise serious property damage or personal injury may result.

OPERATOR SAFETY
VIBRATION AND COLD
• It is believed that a condition called Raynaud’s Phenomenon, which affects the fingers of certain individuals, may be brought about by exposure to vibration and
cold. Exposure to vibration and cold may cause tingling
and burning followed by loss of color and numbness
in the fingers.The following precautions are strongly
recommended because the minimum exposure which
might trigger the ailment is unknown.
• Keep your body warm, especially the head and neck,
feet and ankles and hands and wrists.
• Maintain good blood circulation by performing vigorous
arm exercises during frequent work breaks and also by
not smoking.
• Limit the number of hours of operation. Try to fill each
day with jobs where operating the chain saw, or other
hand-held power equipment is not required.
• If you experience discomfort redness and swelling of
the fingers, followed by whitening and loss of feeling,
consult your physician before further exposing yourself
to cold and vibration.
REPETITIVE STRESS INJURY
• It is believed that over-using the muscles and tendons
of the finger, hands, arms and shoulders may cause
soreness, swelling, numbness, weakness and extreme
pain to the areas just mentioned. Certain repetitive hand activities may put you at a
high risk for developing a repetitive stress injury (RSI).
• An extreme RSI condition is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
(CTS) which could occur when your wrist swells and
squeezes a vital nerve that runs through the area.
Some believe that prolonged exposure to vibration
may contribute to CTS.CTS can cause severe pain for
months or even years.
To reduce the risk of RSI/CTS, do the following:
• Avoid using your wrist in a bent, extended or twisted
position.
• Take periodic breaks to minimize repetition and rest
your hands.
• Reduce the speed and force in which you do the repetitive movement.
• Do exercises to strengthen hand and arm muscles.
• See a doctor if you feel tingling, numbness or pain in
your fingers, hands, wrists or arms. The sooner RSI/
CTS is diagnosed, the more likely permanent nerve and
muscle damage can be prevented.
9
EYE AND HEARING PROTECTION
• Wear eye protection goggles that meet ANSI Z 87.1 requirements. Goggles meeting the requirements have the mark “Z 87” stamped on them.
• Wear hearing protection. If this guideline is not followed, hearing loss can occur. ECHO recommends wearing hearing protection
at all times.
WEAR PROPER CLOTHING
• Snug fitting durable clothing should be worn.Pants
should have long legs, DO NOT WEAR SHORTS. Do not wear loose fitting clothing, scarves, neckties, jewelry or any item that may become tangled in
surrounding growth or the chain saw itself.
• Wear shoes with non-skid soles. DO NOT wear open
toed shoes or operate unit barefooted.
• Wear no-slip, heavy duty work gloves to improve your
grip on the chain saw handles. The gloves also help
reduce the transmission of machine vibration to your
hands.
• Keep long hair away from engine and air intake. Retain
hair with cap or net.
HOT HUMID WEATHER
• Heavy protective clothing can increase operator fatigue which may lead to heat stroke. Schedule heavy
work for early morning, or late afternoon hours when
temperatures are cooler.
AVOID HOT SURFACES
• During operation, the muffler or catalytic muffler and
surrounding cover become hot.
• Never suspend the saw on a lanyard with the engine
running.
• Always use the saw from the right-hand side of your
body - NEVER from the left side.
• Always wear proper safety clothing to protect your
lower body from sharp saw chain and hot muffler.
• Always keep exhaust area clear of flammable debris
during transportation or when storing, otherwise serious property damage or personal injury may result.
CS-400
SPARK ARRESTOR MUFFLER
• The spark arrestor muffler controls the exhaust
noise and prevents hot, glowing particles of carbon from leaving the muffler. Make sure the spark arrestor screen is in good
repair and properly seated in the muffler.
• Certain internal combustion engines operated on
forest, brush, and/or grass-covered areas in the
states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California,
Minnesota, New Jersey and Maine, are required
to be equipped with a spark arrestor.
This requirement also applies to all U.S. Forest
Service lands. In some of these areas, the spark arrestor system
must be certified per USDA Forest Service Regulation SAE J335. Check with your local or state authorities for specific regulations in your area. Failure to follow these requirements is a violation
of the law.
CORRECT USE OF CHAIN BRAKE
Rotational kickback
DANGER
Kickback safety precaution for chain saw
users: Kickback may occur when the nose
or tip of the guide bar touches an object or
when the wood closes in and pinches the
saw chain in the cut.
Reduced
radius
The installation of a chain brake may be mandatory
by law or as stipulated by insurance regulations in
your area of operation. You should inquire through local government offices, your employer or your local dealer to ensure

CUTTING INSTRUCTION
GENERAL
CAUTION
•Read the ECHO “CHAIN SAW SAFETY MANUAL”
included with your chain saw for additional
cutting and safety instructions.
•Wear suitable hearing protection such as
earmuffs or earplugs to protect against
objectionable or uncomfortable loud noises.
•Do not let the tip of the bar touch anything while
the engine is running. At cutting speed the chain is moving at a high
rate of speed. Should the tip contact a limb or log while the
chain is moving, the tip will be pushed upward
with considerable force. This is known as
kickback. Avoid it!
In all circumstances the operation of the chain saw is a
one-man job.
It is difficult at times to take care for your own safety, so
don’t assume the responsibility for a helper as well.
After you have learned the basic techniques of using
the saw, your best aid will be your own good common
sense.
The accepted way to hold the saw is to stand to the left
of the saw with your left hand on the front handlebar and
your right hand on the rear handle so you can operate
the throttle trigger with your right index finger.
Before attempting to fell a tree, cut some small logs or
limbs.
Become thoroughly familiar with the controls and the
responses of the saw.
Start the engine, see that it is running properly.
Squeeze the trigger to open the throttle wide open and
start the cut. If the chain is properly sharpened, the cutting should be relatively effortless.
It is not necessary to press down hard to make the saw
cut.
Pushing the saw too hard will slow the engine and cutting will actually be more difficult.
NOTE
Some material may adversely affect the housings of
your ECHO chain saw.
(Example: Palm Tree Acid, fertilizer, etc.) To avoid
housing deterioration, carefully remove all packed
saw dust around clutch and guide bar area and
wash with water. Coat metal parts with light oil.

FELLING THE TREE
3 m (10 feet)
Retreat
Direction of fall
warning
A falling tree can seriously damage anything it may
hit - a car, a house, a fence, a power line, or another
tree. There are ways to make a tree fall where you
want it, so first decide where that is!
45°
Retreat
Not this way
Before cutting, clear the area around the tree.You will
need good footing while working and you should be
able to work the saw without hitting any obstacles. Next,
select a path of retreat.When the tree begins to fall you
should retreat away from the direction of fall at a 45-degree angle and at least 3 m (10 feet) from the trunk to
avoid the trunk kicking back over the stump.
Direction of fall
Hinge
Begin the cut on the side to which the tree is to fall. Cut
a notch about 1/3 of the way into the tree. The position
of this notch is important since the tree will try to fall
“into” the notch.The felling cut is made on the side opposite the notch and at a level about 5 cm (2 in.) above
the bottom of the notch. Do not try to cut through to the
notch with the felling cut.
The remaining wood between the notch cut and felling
cut about 5 cm (2 in.) will act as a hinge when the tree
falls, guiding it in the desired direction. When the tree starts to fall, kill the engine, place the saw
on the ground and make your retreat quickly.
5 cm (2 in.)
First cut
Felling cut
Notch
Second cut
5 cm (2 in.)
One-third tree diameter
To fell big trees with a diameter exceeding twice the bar
length, start the notching cuts from one side and draw
the saw through to the other side of the notch.
Start the back cut on one side of the tree, pivoting the
saw through to form the desired hinge on that side. Then remove the saw for the second cut. Insert the saw
in the first cut, very carefully so as not to cause kickback. The final cut is made by drawing the saw forward
in the cut to reach the hinge.

Limbing
Limbing a fallen tree is much the same as bucking.
Never stand on the tree that you are limbing.
When limbing, caution is the word.
Be careful of the tip touching other limbs.
Always use both hands.
Don’t cut with the saw overhead or aligned vertically with your body. If the saw should kickback, you
may not have enough control to prevent possible
injury.
Bucking
Bucking is the sawing of a log or fallen tree into
smaller pieces. There are a few basic rules which apply to all bucking operations. Keep both hands on the handles at all times. Support logs if possible. When cutting on a slope or hillside, always stand
uphill.
Keep in mind that the wood is heavy and that it will
bend and pinch the saw if improperly supported.
The trunk will weaken at the point where you make
the cut unless the tree is lying on perfectly flat
ground or supported as shown. If you make the cut with the tree on the ground,
don’t let the saw’s chain dig into the earth; it is
harmful for the saw, and you stand a good chance
of being struck by flying debris.
To cut the trunk, use the bucking and two-cut
sequence shown. The first cut should be no deeper than one-third
the trunk diameter.
Uphill position
Finish cut
warning

KICKBACK IS DANGEROUS
Board or flat stones
Kickback is generated when the rotation of the
chain is arrested for some reason. The most
dangerous effect of this action occurs when the
nose of the bar contacts another object, the chain
is momentarily stopped and all the energy of the
engine throws the bar upwards and backwards
towards the operator.
The chain saw industry and government agencies have attempted to prescribe various safety
devices, but the best protection is to avoid kickback.
Comply with the Safety Precautions as listed in
this manual.
CS-400

CHAIN BRAKE OPERATION
Kickback motion
• Set the lever in the unlocked position before
starting to cut.
• If the brake is tripped by kickback reaction, the
chain will stop immediately. Release the throttle
to avoid possible damage to the engine or clutch.
• Do not attempt to operate the engine with the
brake locked.
TESTING THE BRAKE
• Start the engine on a solid level surface and run
at a fast idle until warm.
• Hold the saw firmly by the handles and accelerate the engine to a fast idle.
• Slowly operate the chain brake lever while holding the saw firmly on the ground. When the
brake lever trips, the chain should stop. Immediately release the throttle trigger.
Kickback
WARNING
If the chain does not stop immediately, return
the saw to your authorized ECHO dealer for
repair.
Chain brake function
When the lever is pushed forward, chain brake
instantly stops the chain.
NOTE
•For practice, while cutting a small tree, push
the lever forward to lock the brake.
•Confirm that the brake works properly before
each use.
•If the chain brake is clogged with wood chips,
function of the brake may deteriorate. Always
keep the device clean.
•Do not increase engine RPM's while the chain
brake is locked.
Chain brake unlock
When the lever is fully pulled, toward the
operator, brake is unlocked.
IMPORTANT
Do not allow the saw to tip forward in order to
avoid damage to the chain.

AUTOMATIC CHAIN BRAKE
End of the guide bar may be placed at the
height of about 35 cm (14 in.).
Kickback produced from the tip of the guide bar will
trip the automatic chain brake. To make sure that
the automatic chain brake operates properly, follow
these steps:
1. Stop the engine.
2. Hold the saw with the guide bar approximately
35 cm (14 in.) above a wooden surface. Right
hand should hold the rear handle, and left
hand should hold the front handle.
3. Release the front handle and drop the end of
the guide bar against the wooden surface.
4. The impact should lock the chain brake.
35 cm
(14 in.)
IMPORTANT
When checking the operation of the automatic
chain brake, use a soft surface substance like
wood to provide the impact so the chain is not
damaged.
Rear handle should be gripped lightly with the
right hand.
WINTER OPERATION
Air cleaner cover
Use the winter plug to prevent carburetor trouble in
winter.
• Remove air cleaner cover. Remove plug from

CARBURETOR ADJUSTMENT
Engine Break-In
New engines must be operated a minimum duration
of two tanks of fuel break-in before carburetor adjustments can be made. During the break-in period your
engine performance will increase and exhaust emissions will stabilize. Idle speed can be adjusted as
required.
WARNING
Cutting attachment must not move when unit
is idling.
6. Accelerate to full throttle for 2 - 3 seconds to
clear any excess fuel in the engine, then return
to idle. Accelerate engine to full throttle to
check for smooth transition from idle to high
speed. If engine hesitates turn “L” needle CCW
1/8 turn and repeat acceleration. Continue
adjustment until smooth acceleration results.
7. Check idle speed and reset if necessary as
described in item 5. If a tachometer is available
idle speed should be set to 2400 - 2900 r/min.
High Altitude Operation
This engine has been factory adjusted to maintain satisfactory starting, emission, and durability performance
up to 1,100 feet above sea level (ASL) (96.0 kPa). To
maintain proper engine operation and emission compliance above 1,100 feet ASL the carburetor may need to
be adjusted by an authorized ECHO service dealer.
Important
If the engine is adjusted for operation above
1,100 feet ASL, the carburetor must be readjusted when operating the engine below 1,100
feet ASL, otherwise severe engine damage may
result
CAUTION
When starting, idling adjustment speed
should be adjusted not to rotate the saw
chain. Correct idle speed is adjusted 2400 to
2900 r/min. Or 1/4 turn CCW from the point
the chain stops moving. When you experience trouble with the
carburetor, contact your dealer.

Important points for proper maintenance of saw
chain:
• Keep the cutters sharp at all times.
• Keep the left and the right cutters properly
aligned.
- Note that blunt or irregular cutters will result in
poor cutting performance, increased vibration
of chains and premature breakage of the saw
chain.
• Drive link serves to remove sawdust from the
groove of the guide bar. Keep the lower edge of the drive link sharp
where indicated.
SETTING SAW CHAIN
30°
• For setting saw chain, round file (4.0 mm dia.
5/32 in.) and flat file are used.
• To keep correct position and correct angle, use the file holder (Sure Sharp®).

When setting of the chain is finished, soak it in oil
and wash away filings completely before using.
• When chain has been filed on the bar, supply
sufficient oil to it, rotate the chain slowly to wash
away the filings before using again.
• If the chain saw is operated with filings clogged
in the groove, the saw chain and the guide bar
will be damaged prematurely.
• If the saw chain becomes soiled with resin, for
instance, clean it with kerosene and soak in it oil.
NOTE
These angles are referred to as 91VG. To
sharpen other chains, follow chain manufacturer’s instructions.
