That's a perfect beauty. Looks never used? A must have for someone with a spare 044 or MS-440.

I was thinking of you and a 660 066.  It is new he says never used.

Going by the part number for bar it would seem it would be the large mount stihl 084 088 076 etc. 3002 650 4702  30026504702   You think that is the case?

If the lead number is of the 084 family then it is a large mount Stihl like you say.

Like too big for a 066 even if the slot was welded up and remade?

My older son used my bow saws the last two week ends on his 11 acres and he thinks they are the greatest thing that ever was for blocking firewood lengths from trees laying on the ground.

He says it's like a hot knife through butter!

It is 1/2 mi NE from the place you remember. It is just around the corner. You still hear the race cars on Saturday and Sunday. This property has more white pine than hard woods. The other place was strong in beech and cherry with a streak of hemlock. The home is 20 years newer than the other place.

The new place in spite of having a lot of white pines has enough hard wood in its 11 acres to keep him in plenty of firewood. The woods are not as mature in this new place. The trees are only some 35-40 yrs old from when it was a corn field. The terrain on this property is not quite as extreme as the other place.

for 50 bucks............a machinist friend could fix that up? longer guards be nice also. i'd like a bigger/longer bow, at 6' i still have to bend over a little with mine.

Looks to me like a 3002 mount bar for sure. But like already said for 50 bucks that is a great deal. Even if you have to make the slot to fit a 3003 mount.
