My Amish dealer has one he won't part with. Says its his sons. Every time I go there I ask him if its for sale. I think some day he'll give in cause he's tired of me whining. ;)

You've gotta get over that reed valve hangup my friend.  The 655BP I  ran recently was significantly stronger that a ported MS660 I ran the same day.  $200 runners eh?  Point me to the next one of those that comes your way.  $300 is out of my reach right now.  Hopefully that will change soon...

How do you tell the difference between the regular and bp models?

How do you tell the difference between the regular and bp models?

655 BP = Boost Ports

Quote from: pioneerguy
If it is a true BP655 then it has a cylinder with an extra port that allows a little extra fuel air mix to reach the top of the piston and thus create a little extra power. The BP stands for boost port or at least that is what I have always heard and believed.

Quote from: Busmech
The Bp stands for boost port which was added shortly after the 655 was introduced. The 655 is the P65 with different decals.

Quote from: Jacob J
Yep. "Boost Port" is straight out of the dealer support manual.

In this 6 cube video around the 7min area and on. There appears to be a poulan 655 and a pioneer p62 making cuts.  If 8x8 cants, that would be a 32"x32" cant cut.

That last saw the P62 looked like it was cutting half way decent but the 2 before it I was not real impressed.    The Huskys looked like the cut pretty good and some of the Stihls.

I waited a few days before posting to see what happens in his thread. 

Per owner on chainsaw repair group.

Brand new, never oiled Poulan Pro 655BP From a dealer that closed, never sold the saw, so he never fueled it or oiled it! Crazy clean, obviously left sitting on a shelf. Just couldn't pass it up! Unfortunately, my shop is a working shop and I don't have some place to keep it and and keep it clean so I'll have to let it go to the next collector, but I saved it from a unknown future, should be in the hands of a collector! 100cc saw, brand new, use it to run a mill, or set it on the shelf and admire the beauty!

Wow that is a lot of loot.   There are a lot of saws out there for that much.   But if you want a NOS 655 BP then there it is.
