OK i will go first Shindaiwa 695
« on: March 06, 2011, 07:52:59 pm »
I have had a shindawa 695 pro for more than 15 yrs, been a great saw, all metal and of course a little heavy for a 60cc saw, only thing i have done to is fuel line, runs like a top and has great power !
Was purchased right after hurricane opal in panama city florida, i cleared 5 trees out of a old mans yard and he didnt have the money to pay me for the work, so he gave me his brand new 695 shindawa after i finished the work. I would buy a new one if i could get parts support !
I drives me boat my wife drives me dingy

Shin dealer here went Husky. He had a nice display of shins too.

One of the many places online to get shin parts.   http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=shindaiwa&mn=695+Chainsaw&dn=01130011

695 IPL   http://www.shindaiwa.com/can/en/_docs/ipls/chainsaws/575_695.pdf

Dry PHO weight shows    13.2  that isnt bad for 68cc saw. 372 71cc list 13.6


Shows 68cc     

            The Shindaiwa 695 chainsaw features a 4.8-horsepower, two-piece crankshaft engine with a 67.9 cc displacement and 1.93 by 1.42 of bore and stroke. The engine has a maximum working capability of 12,500 rpm and idles at 1,200 rpm.

      Chain Oiler     
            Shindaiwa's 695 chainsaw comes equipped with an adjustable clutch-driven piston type chain oiler and an 11.2-oz. oil tank. The manufacturer recommends using oil specifically designed for bar and chain use and, for winter use, special winter-grade bar and chain oil. Reclaimed oil is never to be used with the 695 chainsaw.
     
 Fuel System
            The Shindaiwa 695 uses a Walbro HDA29A carburetor with a boot mounting method and comes equipped with a diecast magnesium fuel tank which holds 23.7 oz. of fuel. The manufacturer recommends using 89 octane or higher unleaded fuel.

Which was first the 680 or 695? Back when the first came out there was an ad stating how the saw was better than the Husky 266 in 68 or 69 ways.

Are you thinking Solo? Biggest Shindaiwa is 73cc.

WOW !! Thank you for the info, i looked on the net but didnt find much about the 695. I have used the saw maybe 5 cord of wood in the last 10 years or so, its in excellent condition, and i mean excellent. I have noticed some saws are listed on e-bay as excellent, Well there standards are very low compared to mine. LOL ! Sounds crazy to some ! But i Wax my chainsaws and clean them on every use, or within a week. I bought a husky and 4 stihls in the last 10 years and didn't burn wood before that, So i guess i really can't say how good of a saw they are, but mine starts 2nd or 3rd pull, and is race car red, so that is why i wanted it nice and clean !! Never know when a hot chick might drive by ! LOL !!!  ;D

Well, I guess I gotta buy me a piston. I have a 695 in real decent cosmetic shape that's wiped. Jug looks usable, and frankly, I like the feel of this saw. Kind of an interesting set up they have. The piston is domed as on an older Jonsered, yet the jug is an open port style.

While my main CAD affliction is Jonny and Husky, I'd like to have one decent example of some of the other brands. So, this will be my Shinny.  8)

I think if i remember right I have a 680 that is basically a 695 but lighter, I never put time into it to even try starting it but I remember it was really light for a high 60 cc saw. I'll have to grab that one next. and give it a shot.

Yes I remember that ad. I demoed a 680 when they first came out in the early 1980s in one of our cold Manitoba winters. I loved that saw, quick, light and great balance. Everything as good or better then the Husky 266..... but only in summer. A little fluffy snow in the intake on a -20F day and the 680 would freeze up instantly. Blame that on the gap in the top covers and thermal insulated intake manifold for heat.
But then the Stihl 044 was also famous for freezing up which took Stihl almost 5 long years to develop and introduce the heated carb "Artic" 044.

An old neighbor of mine had his father from Nova Scotia come for a  1st time visit to Manitoba one winter. His father said upon looking at our cars and trucks, "why do you have an extension cord plugged into the front of your vehicles?"
