More than likely a new set of rings plus seals for good measure would get it right back to running good . Reringing that saw would be one of the most simplest of things to do regarding repairs of any nature.Even if there is some piston slop it won't affect the performance that much .Maybe not as good as complete rebuild but good enough and certainly better than what it is,a lot cheaper too .

Pull the muffler cover and look at the piston.    See what that looks like before getting too excited.    Common problem on these is bad AV mounts and a rip in the intake boot, might explain dying in the cut, as well as a bad fuel line, etc..

I wouldn't know what I was looking at inside...guessing the fewer scratches the better?
The AV mounts were tight, the 'boot' didn't show any signs(at least on top)....not sure I really want to go pulling things apart(according to at least one person here, parts are impossible to find and cost more to get then a new saw).
Going to a dealer on the other side of the planet(Little Rock, AR) to get a new fuel line and gas filter tomorrow(can't hurt). Might even go 'whole hog' and grab something like a air filter and spark plug(just kidding on the plug...already have about thirty new ones laying in my bag)....

I looked in the 'tutorial' section of the forum here....but I guess since it's a new, it might be awhile before I can find a 'list of tools needed'.
I would like to know....is there a simplified list of tools need?  It would be awesome to actually do my first 'anything' on a saw without it costing six times the saw cost new.  Spent a good part of the day out of the wind looking at video on YouTube, but no one has said....."these are what you need, and this other stuff is 'fluff' that you can get by without".

Just pull off the muffler cover, if you see scratches, hold off on buying parts.  I'll see if I can put up some pics of pistons, good,ok, and bad.

 Just do a compression test first, if much under 140 with a good tester it's time for a rebuild,, Sure could be some thing simple like bad fuel lines or a dirty carb.  Steve
