Re: Jonsereds 490 heat handle
« Reply #40 on: July 18, 2019, 09:38:10 am »
Found the old info and pics of my jonsered 490 heated handle today.

Some info from 2009 =  Tag shows made in 1982 with only 4 digit serial number. History is saw was bought new by a racer and set aside after test cuts, later sold to another racer to build a race saw, but he didnt want to butcher it with the heated handles and it set on a shelf and got dusty again, then it made its way to Ohio where I found it just setting collecting more dust.
I am going to leave this saw as a original myself, but I am going to try out those heated handles this winter.
I noticed the dawg and chain catcher was removed (but I have both), which is something a racer will do to keep from tearing up a good chain.

This 490 with heated handles is still all stock.
