Do they all come with that huge air filter cover?

Yeah it's a big "pro-flow" type filter like the aftermarket ones for Stihls.

So no low top, high top option?

How hard to get parts for?

Did a quick parts search... looks like they're easy to get and fairly cheap

I've seen them with low top.  I have also seen a high top kit for sale.

County where I work has one.

My opinion on using it....not great.  They put a 32" bar on it with unknown chain.  Chain being sharp, the saw often doesn't have the power to pull the length.  One of the hardest starting saws I've ever had the misfortune of using....floods easy, and if you are lucky enough to get the dang thing to fire...you can count on it dying soon after warm up.


Given the option of having to use this saw or a hatchet, I'll pick the hatchet.

We haven't had any starting issues. Power is a touch less then a 372 but not much. Remember they are "old" technology saws meaning they don't have carb limiters or "cat" mufflers or anything. Just a basic saw so tuning plays a big part in how they operate.
