Echo Timber Wolf CS-590 Chainsaw Review

Echo Timber Wolf CS-590 Chainsaw Review

The Echo Timber Wolf CS-590 Chainsaw is one of the most popular chainsaws in the world. It was designed by John Husqvarna and it’s been in production since 1997. It’s not just a chainsaw, but also a power tool.

You can use it to cut through wood or metal with ease. However, its main selling point is its price tag. For $1,500 (or less) you get a powerful chainsaw that will do wonders for your home or business.

The CS-590 comes in two models: the CS-570 and the CS-580. Both have similar features and capabilities, but they’re priced differently. If you want something cheaper than the CS-580, then you might consider purchasing one of these smaller versions instead.

Ease Of Use:

The CS-590 is very easy to use. In fact, as long as you know what you’re doing (and you’ve been trained) then it’s very unlikely that you’ll have any issues using it at all. Of course, if you’re a complete novice when it comes to chainsaws, then it might take you a few tries before you get the hang of it.

The only real issue is the weight of the chainsaw. As you can see, it’s very light. At only 2.6 pounds (1.2 kg), it might be too light for some users.

The good thing is that it’s incredibly easy to control, even if it is on the lighter side. If you have any problems with the weight, then all you need to do is grip the chainsaw tightly and you’ll be able to work with it just fine.


The efficiency of the CS-590 is certainly on point. It’s able to cut through wood and metal like a hot knife through butter. All you need to do is put in some effort, and it’ll cut through anything.

Of course, you have to sharpen the teeth every once in a while. You should also oil the chainsaw every so often as well. If you don’t do this, then the efficiency will go down a little bit.

The good thing about this chainsaw is that it rarely gets jammed. You’ll be able to use it for hours on end without getting any jams at all. Even if the wood you’re cutting is wet, you shouldn’t have any issues with the chainsaw at all.

Maintenance Cost:

The maintenance cost of the CS-590 is fairly low. As long as you’re keeping it oiled and sharpening the teeth every once in a while, then you shouldn’t have to worry about spending too much money on maintenance. The only parts that break down quickly are the spark plugs and the muffler, but those are pretty cheap to replace anyway.


The safety features on the CS-590 are quite adequate. It starts up fairly easily with the pull of the cord. It doesn’t cause any sort of injury when you’re working with it.
