Never heard of Harvest brand. But other parts from and made in Italy have been top notch.

I just saw it on ebay for $16 free shipping and if it is made in Italy I would like to have it for a spare but if it's made in China then it's not such a good deal. I guess I'll pass. Thanks

Who is the seller?  If it's dandrikop in Greece I wouldn't be afraid of it he normally sells good stuff.

I emailed and ask if the rings might be Caber, he just said no and nothing else. Who knows? I bought 2 tecomec pistons, 028s and 026, on clearance sale, said Italy on description but when I got it also said made in China on the box, looked good though. Wasn't ebay either.

I bought some 45mm x 1.5 rings from that seller were supposed to be Mahle rings.  The 5100 Dolmar I put it in didn't last thru 1 homeowner firewood season.  I would pass on future purchases.

Some stuff is just junk, I bought an aftermarket elasta pull rope thinking it would be a little easier on my hand, first pull the saw kick back and pulled the center out of the handle.

The best thing you can do for a mule kicker is a Stihl 460 rescue saw D handle .They're about an 8-9 dollar item .

I've seen those, I found out why my saw kickin so bad, the oil I thought was so good may not have been. It is 80% senthetic an 20% caster and I was mixing a little heavy, thought that would be good. 91 octane pure gas too. Carbon built up in the combustion chamber down the piston. The whole exaust side of piston was black, rings stuck and kinda gooy buildup in exhaust port. May have had 8hrs on it, all milling. Got my 038 too but I caught it before any problems.
