here is a link so that you can see what I am talking about, it is on ebay:
If you can just tell me if this saw will scream and do well if it runs and was well taken care of, or if it is nothing special at all. I would greatly appreciate an answer to this email, and I am sorry if this was sent to the wrong department..:}
I need information on a Craftsman older model chainsaw. I think is has a 17" bar, and someone told me homelite is the company behind the engine in thes chainsaw. I have looked under homelites different models and see that they are similar, but not shure. The model number starts with 917, and the weird thing is, I have seen Sears, and these david brandley chainsaws, with model numbers also starting with a 917. I just would like any information at all on the engine, if it was a "chrome lined cylinder?" And basically, where I can get parts, do I need a 17" bar replacement, or can I use other sizes?
It says solid state on it. Basically, I just want to know if this craftsman saw is going to perform as a "screamer" or as the newer, so called "crappy" craftsman chainsaws.?
