Bruce at HL supply might be able to help ya out. He's an echo dealer, but shipping might kill the deal for you. I'm not sure if they are listed on the website. I always call direct.Ok I’m sold on getting a 2511t, where to get a powerhead only online, as I will be replacing the bar and sprocket to run a Stihl 1/4??
I bought one from this seller. It's legit and the saw is a 2020 model.@evo Check this eBay auction out. Includes bar and chain for $349. Supposedly NIB, but eBay's buyer protection system is pretty good in case the saw is messed up. Just document everything well from the time you open box.
That's who I bought mine from.I bought one from this seller. It's legit and the saw is a 2020 model.
Thank you for the information! Has it helped having the primer bulb replaced? I´ve been having the same issues with mine 2511...Update 1
I was able to register the saw on Echo's website.
When you register they ask you for the dealer you purchased it from.
I did some digging on that ebay seller and I found their Brick and Mortar store is:
NORTHSIDE TRUE VALUE POWER CTR
1415 NORTH RICHMOND ST.
APPLETON, WI 54911
I entered that info but I don't think it mattered as long as you pick one of their listed dealers.
Print your registration and you won't need you receipt for repair, just you printed reg.
Just got off the phone with Echo and told them about what was happening with my saw.
I also told them I read on a forum that another person had their primer bulb replaced by their dealer for a known issue.
Turns out that is absolutely correct.

You have to take the saw to an Echo servicing dealer for replacement or buy one yourself.
They will not send you one.
It's all 1/4 .043What chain gauge and pitch did you end up using?
Actually, I have them. My two .050 chains are nearing end of life. Y'all just about have me brainwashed enough that I may give a .043 b&c a chance on that saw, lol. I've seriously considered drilling out a spare Stihl 14" .043 bar, but I really like having a 12" on it. I almost forget its on the saddle.If you need the part numbers I'll post them
12" is great. Having used the full 14" in oak for the first time, I think it is better for removals than the 12". The cut is not top speed, but it is very decent. I've been using an 8" on my pruning powerhead for over a year and it is fantastic. I'd never go back to anything longer for pruning. Even did most of a large laurel oak removal with the 8" bar...Actually, I have them. My two .050 chains are nearing end of life.

I have this sometimes, but I fix it with a fine low jet tweak. The saw seems more vulnerable to environmental than my Stihls. Again, maybe walbro vs zama carb, but who knows.I still notice the saw idle changes when flipped from one side to the other.
