Wondering About Plastic Case on an Echo Saw

782 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Alleyyooper
Hearing Good things about these newly-designed Echoes. But, one thing worries me, and that is that they are constructed with a plastic case. All I keep thinking about is what would happen if you dropped a good size log on your saw on a 20 degree day when that plastic is good and brittle. Any thoughts or considerations? Thanks.

A log is gonna break parts on any saw, be it mag cases or plastic.

Typically the top handle and air filter cover take most of the impact.

There are hundreds of thousands of plastic case Stihls and Huskys out cutting firewood in sub zero temps. If it was a problem, they wouldn't be popular.
