    Here's a saw you don't see very often. This is a 90cc saw. It's kind of old school in it's design, but is a great runner both stock and modded. In the vid here, the first few cuts shown are with the saw bone stock in some softish Basswood. In the ported vid, the wood is some very hard Pin Oak and the bar buried. The chain needs the rakes dropped to really perform, but you can still get a good idea of how the saw's performing.

    Nice sounding saw after mods. How does it compare to a 390 or 660?

    Holds the rpms very nicely after the porting.

    Just checked pricing, those things are expensive!.

    I was limited in port widths by skirt widths and ring ends, but I took what I could. It should make a real nice big wood work saw.

    Are the stock air filters choking the saw?

    I doubt it. It is flocked, but has a lot of surface area.

    Did you do anything to the muffler? I was amazed at how choked up the stock muffler on the 9010.

    Opened up the entire end of the cage, and majorly opened the original exhaust exit hole. I felt I had sufficient surface area that I didn't need another port. In the vid, I still have the spark arrestor screen installed, so if he wants more area, all he has to do is remove the screen. Of course, there's pleny of room on that huge muffler to add an additional port if so desired.

    That is what i did to mine. Took out all the guts and opened the stock hole as big as I could. Louder than hell though.

    I paid $900-ish for mine this spring. I don't know how availability is anymore- I'm pretty sure they are an EPA casualty. Bailey's had Solo 694s which are the same saw for about that price, but I think those are long gone. They don't seem to show up for me on the site at least.

    Saw sounds pretty darn good, has no problem in the Oak.

    It belongs to a friend. He'll probably come along shortly. It's just another one of his "pieces of junk", if you catch my drift:)

    I think I'll trade him this piece of junk for that big red piece of junk. I'm holding the 9010 for ransom:) It's just a piece of crap Crapsman anyway, lol.
