Test cut with my RA mix and RS chain in the dry ash log. 

Dumped and airing out now so I can air it off and get ready to pack up. 

That is pretty cool Kevin.  Not everyone would find a saw like this one and then offer it out there for what it costs from the seller.

All packed up today. Will go out Mon UPS. Had to use a bigger box do to the length. To tight in my normal shipping boxes.  :-X
I like room to pad all the way around them.  Box ended up with 22"x22" by 14" deep

add more. This saw starts so easy.  When I picked up. 1st pull poped and pushed in choke quicly and kept it running.

Yesterday 2 pulls running.

Today to run dry 2-3 and ran idleing dry.

Kevin, that 8500 you just let go had some great memorabilia involved with it.
7 time Hayward World champ Ron Hartill and his son Dale had great success with it in the 1980's.
Here's a good pic of them in the late 1980's.
