It runs okay .I had thought it had about as much go as an 044 but it doesn't .Not bad but no cookie cutter .

I really am doing the thing injustace by not running it any more than I do .I have my favorites but any of them do a little better if they get a run now and again .

Kind of odd ,it's bone stock .I don't think I have any others except the large Macs and the 2100 Homey  that hasn't had at least an opened up muffler .This thing is quiet which is totally out of sorts  for one of the  saws I own .Because of it's rarity it's doubtfull I'll ever do a thing to it  and leave it as it is .

They could be the exact saw as the Titan 70 for all I know .Mikes sites gives the displacement at 70 cc same as the Titan .

Those   saws would have to be rare because according to Mikes info they list first year as 1998 which I think is when McCulloch circled the drain .Gone forever as we once knew it .

I can't help but wonder why in the world that guy in the vid hung a 36" bar on it . ???

mike's site is wrong on that date. they showed up about a year later then the titan 50-57's hit the shelves. that was about late 1989-90. there wasn't much interest in them around here. there was nothing wrong with them, just cost perspective. why buy a $460 70cc saw when the pm700 was selling for just over $200 at the time. plus the reputation of the 700 didn't help the titan much. around here, if you ask an owner, they'll tell you it never needs to be worked on and is the most reliable piece of equipment they own. if you ask a mechanic, they'll tell you it was one of their best money making tools to come through the door :D we never sold any while I was at bentons. never even been into one except to repair a pull cord. and that's all the customer brought in :( and only ran one for about an hour. seemed to like being a touch richer on the hi than others.
gotta say, never have seen a pm72 8) not here in the americas' i'd imagine?
when I grow up, i wanna be an adult.

Well quite frankly in owning both a 700 and a Titan 70 I'd take the 700 .The Titan 70 runs at higher RPMS but it doesn't have the low end pulling power of the old horizontal cylinder 700 .

Some of the 10-10s' vibrated so much after about 5 minutes your hands go numb .Oddly I never had that problem with a 700 for some reason .My only complaint if ran hard it hot weather some times the 700 didn't want to start so well after a refuel .How the Titan 70 would do I have no idea because I haven't used mine that much .

It'sa nice enough saw but I have better ones colored orange and white that do a better job so it's more or less a shelf queen .

Love my 700 but as you say run hard in hot weather hard to restart Run it totally dry and it becomes a real PITA it would not restart till the day after. But now 2 or 3 pulls from cold away she goes and now the first signs of running out of fuel I shut her down

Well truth be known you really don't want to run any of them out of fuel if you can help it .You can dump the fuel in the tank and let them idle out if you want to store them with no problem .You'd be surprised how long a saw can idle with just what little amount is in the carb .
