I pickup up both the orange and grey from a Stihl dealer close to where I am. Only cost me around 10 bucks per can. The ceramic clear coat makes up for it though, a little pricey.
Nice looking saw. Looks great. I Picked up an 056 as a box of parts. Where did you find the paint for it?
Bang for buck what do you think? My Granberg showed up 3 days Holzforma 6weeks. There pretty close I actually like Holz's top cross brace tightening bolts better and there tool kit. If you need it now I would bite the bullet and go Granberg local. Both awsome rite!
Great work m8!
There's nothing like an old MAC to me!!
Looks Awesome! Great job!!
Yikes!! Ask for pro help on that scary thing....or risk it Wind is not a friend to that tree. And looks of good size.
She's a beaut. Love the custom carry case.
I'll let you know now that I have zero knowledge on trees, I'm purely a chainsaw guy, but I think that one has probably come pretty close to the end of it's life. It seems like it's got a lot of weight on either side and is a serious split waiting to happen, not really sure if bolting it together would buy you any time on this one.
It was a little hairy. Thank you Jesus for guiding my saw, hands and feet.
That's a scary fell rite there wow.
This is Judd
The 076 is gravitation-ally challenged . it likes sitting on the ground. Or chewing big logs.
and yes I know, they shouldn't be on the concrete.but its very old concrete and it was just for the photo
I have the same saw do u know how many cc is it ga boy
Quite the collection: 041 gear!! Wow! I am partial to the 076 Super (my milling and BIG wood saw).
I forgot to add possibly a future round top table???
Total Cost including Bar & Chain plus misc. parts $517.73_ Good thing it's a HOBBY_
090 Parts gotta be hard to find ? Most R expensive & elusive ! Posted a couple of finished MS-660. Bought Stihl 3/8 36" Bar & Chain $137.45_ Saw Runs like a dream ! Running 89 Octane Non-Ethanol mixed w Super-Tech 40:1_kills Mosquitoes_Plenty of lubrication on hot 100 degree days_Thanks for looking & good luck on the 090_
I never had a chance to run the stock 288. I really didnt modify the cylinder much. Just rounded and smoothed out the bottom of the transfers ports and polished the exhaust. I did not alter any port heights. I also opened the stock muffler and deleted the base gasket.
Everyone says they run excellent stock, but this one is quite a beast and has the torque to run a much bigger bar. I think youd be more than happy with it if you did something similar...
Hey bud nice work on the 288! I just picked up a 288xp builder... Wanted to ask if you think all the extra work on the cylinder was worth it???
The saw I have in the pictures above i paid $50 for but it was in a box takin apart all the way to the case, let's just say it needed quit a bit
Hey bud take a look at "Stihl 025 Frank'N'Saw" on YouTube
I think there was one just like that on eBay a little while ago CS2100 I believe is what the old dogz modl
Decomp Valve is pushed in this pic. Chain brake makes it useless without a mod I don't think this saw really needed it but why not test some skills.
The 630 2line with a aftermarket 272 muffler and a little touch on the exhaust port is quite the saw on a quick spin. It will be interesting to see what the 52mm mod 630 has to say on the second match with the 630 superII i believe.
Let's see that dog cut!
Just a note to anyone looking to do this when you order the new top end order a matching carb/intake manifold/ muffler its an extra 20-40 PR set Intake/exhaust so 40-80. Oh and if you want to keep the decomp get the mig and skill out or a bolt haha.
Go check out "Stihl 025 Frank'N'Saw" on youtube.
This looks more like a storage problem than a hoarding problem to me!
Sorry for the mistake : *her
This SXL is in REALLY GOOD original condition, original chain, sharp and never sharpened! Make offer!
I sure like them as well!
I have a BUNCH!
@Skyjayday I have a ported and polished xl12 and a stock 1967 STIHL 041 , although I love Homelites that Old STIHL is about the same stock as that ported and polished xl12, which it has a mufmod gapless rings and really low squish, with adjusted timing.
I have one STIHL to 30 Homeys!
Homelite are the best chainsaws I don't care what anyone says all used my Homelite before stihl
I have a Stihl 044 that I bought for a steal of a deal.
Had a new 18" bar and dull chain and I think that's why buddy sold it.
He didn't know how to start it when I was there...lol.
I paid $300 CAD.
Well I didn't get any response on that haha. I'm about ready to get a few cuts on these two and start the comparison's. I have a feeling that the two line is going to smoke the single line set up... Both same bar and chain one is 84dl and the other 85dl both have 8&7 tooth 3/8 rim to test aswell...
Will foto some of my other older fleet - 08s -041- 051 before plastic appeared! A Funny for ya - if your tree is making you frown , why not cut the F###er down , be it large or be it small the old Sawdog will make it fall ..! Keep well !
