What saw are you looking for ?
« on: November 03, 2013, 10:20:11 am »
What saw is on your list to find?   

I'm just looking on the cheap for poulan 3000 even though I have a Craftsman 3.0 in grey.  Found a builder not so cheap for what it is but still more then I'd pay.
Wouldnt mind finding a cheap stihl 261 builder still stock.
Maybe a husky 242.
partner 7700 710 660 are always on my want list.  But pretty rare even abroad.  Not into shipping saws in from abroad just to add to my saws.  ::)
Be neat to check out that husky 572xp.  ;D

Key words CHEAP for a cheapazz  ;) :D

To use, just a MS241.

To play with, 361, 044/440 and 066. Had them, but sold them in a time of poor judgement.

I'm hoping to get to run a 661 soon. I've been looking for a cheap 461 for a work saw.

Out of necessity, I'm also doing the saw thing on the CHEAP.  Got more saws than I 'need' by a long stretch.  Thinning the herd..........adding to it...................thinning the herd again......................adding more saws again.  Neverending cycle.

For the most part, it's not a matter of finding a saw (or 'looking' for it).........it's finding one cheap enough that's still worth putting time/money into.  Here's my 'big list'.  Some are practical, others are 'pie in the sky'.

-McCulloch 82cc (SP80 thru DE-80) parts and saws.  Gotta keep the fleet runnin'.
-McCulloch CP125 parts saw to help bring my CP125 back from the dead.
-McCulloch SP125.
-McCulloch 797.
-Poulan 7700/8500 saw, and more 4200-8500 parts.  Spares are good.
-Husky 266/268/272XP to build a second one, and more parts.  I run my 272XP quite a bit, and spares be good.
-Poulan Pro 655BP.
-Homelite 3100G.
-SD166.
-SD143.
-Homelite XL-100 Circular Saw.
-Homelite XL-400A.
-Dolmar 120 Super.
-Dolmar 9010.
-Low-top Husqvarna 181/281/288 to build, plus more 181-288 parts. 
Got a nice 1989 300th Anniversary 288XP to rebuild now....and spares are good.:D
-McCulloch 895.
-Homelite 9-23 thru 995D.
-Homelite 9-26 thru 995G.
-Poulan Pro Super 380 or Poulan 3750.
-Homelite 770GS 'Stick Shift'.
-McCulloch Super 550.
-Homelite XL-98 Cutoff Saw.
-Homelite DM20 Demo Saw.
-McCulloch 77.
-McCulloch W170 Welder.
-Homelite chainsaw engine based pumps and generators.
-Homelite XL-12 based brush cutter.
-McCulloch 3-10E, 5-10E, or 10-10E complete with battery box.
-Lombard 68cc or larger 'XL-12 influenced' saw.  AP-42, Comango, etc.
-McCulloch 99.
-Solo Twin.
-Echo CS610EVL.
-SD KMS4 Wankel.
-Mercury/Disston or IEL Twin.
-Poulan 451.
-Homelite 8800.
-Craftsman 5.2-30.
-Craftsman 4.2-24.
-Craftsman 3.6-20.
-Craftsman 4.5-24.
-Craftsman 1.8A (Echo CS302S).
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Most anything Dolmar cheap of course.  Pretty much got my Husky's and I'm not really into Stihls.

I would be all over a clean Sachs-Dolmar for a reasonable price. An old Pioneer would be welcome as well as anything over 100cc. Gotta have power. Problem is finding a place where the household CFO won't see them.
