This thing is a pig. No power, no rpm, and I'm plain disgusted. This model has the fully adj. carb. I removed the limiter cap first off, and have since gone back through to make sure I didn't create a problem while doing so. I opened the muffler to 125% of the exhaust throat area with only a marginal improvement. 046 and MS200 are 2 simply marvelous machines but the neighbors Dolmar 115i I repaired last year has more spirit. Today I finished the 5th tank of gas and I was so angry and underwhelmed I threw it into the creek.
The ms260 pro doesn't come with an elastostart handle but the ms200 did. The ms260 doesn't have falling sights on the starter side but the ms200 does. I guess if I want a 50cc pro saw I should have bought a ms250 and would have been better off. What a hunkajunk!!!
What's the deal with the PS5000??? Is it coming anytime this century? Anyone smuggling them in?
The only redeeming nuance to todays fiasco was I learned a family of Beavers are now inhabiting my creek. I've not learned where their lodge is, and according to my downstream neighbor it must be a distance away, but their falling techniques on small Alder saplings were unmistakeable. If I trap them, are they good to eat? I thought I might make a hat or coat from their hides.
