Having been around Cut4fun's 5020, I think it is a lot more chainsaw than the 295/4620 series
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

You guys can have 'em.  I don't use a 50cc saw much anyways.  I mostly use a 30-41cc or 61-72cc saw.  A PP295 (or a Husky 41 with a PP295 engine swap) 'feels' more like a 41cc saw to me than a 50cc class saw.  It's good that we don't like all the same saws.  Less competition that way.8)

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I would grab one of my 335's.    Small with a decent weight and plenty of umph with a 16" bar.

Right now all the saws I have in the 50cc range are all Dolmars which I like also.   if I go cut pine with the BIL I take saws in the 50cc to 55cc range.

I can't seem to keep a 50cc class saw here.  Every time I get one squared away and running right I sell/trade it off.  I'm assembling a couple Husky 36-41 saws with PP295 engines and will likely be keeping them as beater/bucket saws.  Usually when I go cutting I grab a S25-CVA, a Micro variant, or one of my 61-72cc saws (PP375, Poulan 4000, McCulloch PM700, Husky 272XP), depending on what the job is............with bigger saws coming along if needed. 

Had an 031AV.  Sold it.  Had a nice PP330.  Traded it for the 4000.  Had a nice 45mm Husky 350.  Sold it.  Had a Husky 257.  Traded it for 82cc Mac parts and a couple bars.  Had a 357XP.  Traded it for 123cc Mac stuff.  Had a very nice Poulan 3400.  Sold it.  Have had a couple nice Mac 10-10A's.  Donated one to the Stumpy raffle, and traded the other for a Homelite XL-850.  My Poulan 306A, XL-103, and Homelite XL-12/SXL saws just sit on the shelf most of the time.  Most of those are really 60cc class saws anyways...

And that's just one displacement range Roger.  My postal carriers don't like me very much.... 8)

.........and in that class I forgot the nice late chainbrake equipped Jonsereds 621 that I traded for a big McCulloch based Target concrete saw, the nice Stihl S-10 I sold, the Husky 50 I had for a short time, all the SXL/XL-12 saws that I've parted out, etc..


This has taken place over several years.  If I'd kept every saw that's come through here I'd have well over 100 saws.  Heck................I can't even remember all of the saws that I have right now (especially if you count parts saws)... ???
