Eager beaver help?
« on: July 24, 2013, 06:40:19 pm »
I just bought a used eager beaver 14'' and not sure where the model number and serial. All i can find is eager beaver on the side and on the top decal that tells you how to start it, it says 2.0 CID then at the bottom in tiny print has 130y, and on the bar it has 0.50. Im looking for a new chain for it and i guess i need a model number to find it. Can anyone help?

does it look similar to this one?:


or this one?:



either way. the 'model number' isn't going to be a help. just take the chain into a small engine/chainsaw shop and they can spin a new chain up for you.
or count the number of drive links and order one from a good site, from somebody here or another online saw site. your saw has 3/8" low pro chain on it. when you order one, look for the term lp, or l.p. or even 'low pro'. i recomend oregon 91vxl for dirty wood and stihl (3)ps for clean stuff.

chances are you aren't going to find the proper drive link number on anything you're going to buy from any of those places. you're better off looking around at a few sites to have them make you up a chain.

on a side note. that saw runs the way it should? does it oil properly? those little mini macs usually are not worth the cost of a new chain unless they work perfectly. if it needs anything (and i mean anything) of any type of work, do yourself a favor and save the money you were going to spend on a chain, and put it towards a more worthy saw. those little saws don't bring more than $20-$30 bux new in box. a new chain is going to cost that.
is it possible that the chain can be sharpened?

Yes starts on first pull everytime manual oiler works fine, although the two bolts to hold the muffler in place do not screw in for some odd reason. but aside that its perfect, what sucks is i just bought this saw last night for 30, no chance in sharpening it, tried but its too dull

I swear I got a used 49dl chain hanging on the rack that needs sharpened up.  You can have if all you need.   3/8LP .050 49DL right?

I cant check till Monday though. 

2hrs south of UT Ohio

Lot of  cutter on that chain on saw in pic.  It can be sharpened and saved IMO.

What is "too dull "? You have to file on it more is all .

Trot off to Lowes or TSC and spend 8 buckets for an Oregon file guide and a 5/32" file and have at it . You're not going to learn any younger . ;)
