I like the way the handle blends in behind the clutch cover.    The 680 must have been a pretty decent running saw at 80cc.

Lot of guys used the 680 for the 5ci racing class back in the day.  Check the threads here on it. Think Adam in Cali still does.

I know this thread is 2 years old, but.........

Leave it to Willard! So good that you hung on to all of this stuff that most of us have thrown out.

Scary part is the "elapsed time" cause I remember selling these saws when they were current models. Still have a 644 and 651pro from that era that I have been using for close to 30 years now. That chassis was competitive in it's day. But like most of these 2nd tier brands, the product was close, but not often on the lead lap with Husky/Jonsered and Stihl.

The internet and sites like this have made the saw hobby possible cause it allows us all to share things. But think of how much more interesting things would be if like 30 years ago, all of these brands were still in business. :)
