Homelite 150 Automatic
« on: July 29, 2012, 10:24:55 pm »
I came across this at the tip shop the other day - $30. Has excellent compression and started easily with fresh fuel. It even has a bit of the original paint left on the bar.
The only thing missing is the outer part of the muffler - this would be easy to engineer if the baffle didn't sit out proud of the rim!
Is the H on the chain for Homelite or Husky perhaps? I have only had Stihl's before this. If it is Homelite, I wouldn't be surprised if it came with the saw when new!

From what I understand the 150 with the rubber grip is the   150e  not as common  Only reason I know this is years ago I posted a pic of mine on cscf and was congratulated on having the model with the rubber grip

Mine did not have the rubber grip.

It had a 16" bar and 3/8' chain, decent power, never any trouble.

But that thing would make your hands sting from here to tomorrow.

Just had a homie 150 dropped off. Be prepared for questions as I know squat about these.

Up and running.  Full 3/8 chain on these.  :o

Only  thing the clutch spring must be weak?  Cant get the chain to stop spinning with carb L and I adjusting, even all the way down to stall out. 

Neat little sticker.  :P

Oh what is suppose to be holding the bottom of handle to crankcase or anything there?   I see by IPL there is a bracket and 2 bolts missing possibility.

Didnt test cut yet.   I was looking and guessing 40something cc. So probably like the echo 452's I got in with 3/8.  I was surprised they had full 3/8 back when too.

Looking at pic, chain looks like full skip.
