I had seen that one and was wondering who was going to collect it. I'm guessing poulan 31 by the number on the side, otherwise I have no clue.

+1, Jim! I noticed that, exhaust only has a screen to keep the critters out! No provision for a muffler at all as far as I can see!

Pretty neat old saw.   When you get it and have done some cutting let me know what you think.

I heard those old Poulans at the GTGs. Those old open exhaust Mac and Poulans are sometimes really loud.

Dexter Day picked it up for me and ran it a little. Ported 362CM blew its doors off! LOL! Like 3 times faster! The seller did not know if it used 7/16 or .404 chain but whatever it was was duller than a butter knife. The saw name plate says 16:1 so I guess some chain work is in order or a new chain, if it is 404.

Got to figure out what modern oil ratio to run it on, just can't believe that it would need 16:1 with modern oil. Acres site says 6500 RPM max. So some messing about will be required!

I would say the old Poulan runs pretty good.
