Title: Stihl museum pics
Post by: Saw Dr on November 17, 2013, 09:18:11 pm
OK, so I have not been very active on this site.  Kevin dropped me a line recently, and re-invited me to participate a little more.  I took a bunch of pics in VA Beach two weeks ago, and now I'll post them up here.

This is actually a Stihl product.  It has a two cylinder diesel engine that they also produced as an industrial powerplant.  Apparently A.Stihl really loved these tractors.  He eventually conceded to stop selling them though, as they were costing money rather than making it.

Stihl branded lawn mower.  JLO engine on this one.  The plastic block is a functional demonstrator of the 4-mix engine.

Several different uses for the venerable 08 power head.  The one on the floor is a water pump.  They said the outboard motor was not actually a Stihl product, but they thought it was a good addition to the museum

One of the first handheld leaf blower prototypes.  Again, 08 engine.

I'll bet they liked the shirt!!!!

Yeah, Mr. Franzen paid a visit to Louisville right after setting up his sharpener for Stihl there, he was ecstatic!!

If they did like the shirt, nobody mentioned it.  I doubt they are much into fashion there. 

I was impressed with the mechanics of the Franzen, but the grind quality was not what I thought it might be for a $20k grinder.  That thing does not take small bites of the cutter, it just plows through in one pass.  The right cutters had more of a burr than I would ever allow on on of my chains from the 511.  That particular Franzen is said to be a few years old. Maybe the newer ones grind with a little more finesse?

This is an ignition tester we fooled with in class.  It will function test any module, and you can check the advance also.  VERY cool.  This is s custom one-off unit.

This is a fully functional TS-500i fuel injected cutoff saw.  They took it apart, so we can see how it works.  You can actually start and run it just like this.

I'm not seeing any buttons and I'm running the latest Firefox. There's just a link for "reporting to moderator."

Great pictures Tim. Virginia Beach has some cool stuff.

If we get like/dislike buttons, will they mean we dislike the post, or dislike the member????

I didn't mean to open Pandora's Box.  The whole "like" comment was actually a joke.  Now that we are up on Tapatalk, I have been visiting from my phone.  I don't think Tapatalk supports "likes" anyway.

If I had a "like" button I would push it for the posting of the museum pictures. But I don't.  I use "WaterFox" the 64bit version of "FireFox".  The "Like/Agree" options show up with other forums. It is a nice feature to have but not essential.

Thanks to the moderators/administrator(s) of this forum for all their work!

No, the Franzen is like any other grinder, and is not as quick and easy as it's selling line says.  Well you can set it up to take out a bunch of damage in one pass, but the cutters will show it, and the wheel needs to be dressed.
     The model in Louisville every now and then would glitch and almost cut a chain in two, or every now and again, the wheel would explode.  I requested
helmets and flack jackets from the owner, he didn't care for my request........

Actually, I don't think he liked me much at all.......

Anyway, in reality, I would make several passes on a rocked out chain, so I was fussing with the thing every few minutes, not like I could just to that and
really work on anything much else like they say.  which is why the owner did not give us labor dollar credit for chain grinding, and the 2 saw techs were
the only ones that had chains, and the saw techs were considered the worst mechanics, so got no bonuses or raises, etc.  The same story at all mower
dealerships that sell saws.

    Anyway, they had a wore out Stihl  grinder out back that I had to use a lot, for the chains that the Franzen couldn't sharpen.  The owner was pissed
that I wanted to bring my Efco grinder in my shop, as I hate Stihl's grinders, he didn't want anyone saying his $20,000 Franzen wasn't the greatest
investment decision that he ever made.

I believe the Stihl Kart engine was 98cc and not the 137cc of the 090

Nice! Would love to find one of those.

I have a 261 with lots of the case missing, but that was due to a falling mishap . . . .

Here is another, best part is it all moves. The chainbrakes works, the piston moves and all the other mechanics.
Like to bring it to the saw shops and get them to try to fix my compression issue, gets the everytime :)

It's a early 034 from the looks of the 1980's fuel cap. Plus rewind housing tag says Made in West Germany so it's not a 036.

036 came out around 1993 when they were Made in Germany then later in the USA.
