Half way home I'd wish to have taken a picture with him and the saw.  Unfortunately, He isn't long for this world and may be one of the most memorable purchases I've had.

Amazing find and fantastic story.  The literature is just over the top.  Thanks for the pics of those documents.  Did Ducati do the castings?

I asked about the guard, he stated it never had one.   So I don't know any thing past that. 

Have watched your run on the YTube many times, they sound great.  Mine is set fat for obvious reasons, after five tanks through it (not difficult to do) I may lean her out a bit.

Well without a doubt the saw is very cool.   

I also liked that you posted the manuals so that I could see the parts break down, and I got to see it run.


Thanks for taking the time.

Does it look like the hand guard was ever bolted in? These saws do like to drink fuel! It seems you get them warmed up and make a few cuts and they are out of gas. Only other thing I see missing is the serial number tag but they are just a sticker that didn't stay on the greatest.

I have the same derby paperwork that came with the brand new in box one I have.

It appears to me that the guard was never present.  The threads show no signs of use and no markings exist for surface wear from the it being attached.  The owner stated it did not come with one but we all know how accurate some memories can be.

Fuel, yes, lots of it.  Dropped two trees with it yesterday using about 3/4 tank of fuel.    Brings me back to my RX-7's.  Sure liked the fuel.
