Chicago, Illinois - ECHO Incorporated has introduced a new chainsaw to the market, the ECHO Timber Wolf CS-590.
The new product falls within the mid-range price bracket and is positioned within the popular 55-60cc semi-pro chain saw segment. The ECHO Timber Wolf CS-590 is also the official chain saw of the Professional Bull Riders (PBR).
ECHO's affiliation with the Professional Bull Riders is expected to help reach the target demographic for this saw - the rural land owner, rancher and firewood cutter. "At ECHO we can relate to 'tough,'" says Mike Best, ECHO VP of sales and marketing. ECHO builds chain saws for use in demanding conditions by ranchers, large land owners and arborists alike. Our partnership with the PBR and two time world champion bull rider Chris Shivers helps us get that message across to fans that have a need for our products."
Shivers, who is a rancher and spokesperson for the ECHO Timber Wolf, retired from professional bull riding last year but remains active in the sport and is a fan favorite. You can hear him talk about the ECHO Timber Wolf at www.echo-usa.com/CS-590-Timber-Wolf.
The ECHO Timber Wolf's professional construction and features provide easy starting, simple operation, high performance, and quick maintenance. Available in 18" and 20" bar lengths, the Timber Wolf CS-590 is powered by a 59.8cc professional-grade engine. Standard features include:
•Heavy duty, easy access, 2-piece air filter
•Decompression valve for easier starter pulls
•Digital ignition system for smooth and quick acceleration
•G-Force Engine Air Pre Cleaner for reduced air filter maintenance
•Spring vibration reduction system for smoother operation
•Side access chain tensioner
•Dual-post chain brake system for durability and safety

Available in top-handle or rear-handle configurations, ECHO chain saws feature high-performance, two-stroke engines and Pro-Fire ignition systems that ensure fast starts and smooth operation. Comfort and control are enhanced with vibration-reduction technology and grouped controls that provide easy access to all saw functions.
A wide range of complementary accessories, including cases, saw chain files, sharpening kits, helmets, chaps and other protective gear, are available for ECHO chain saws.
