    Hey guys really cool posts and pictures, I have been visiting 20160823_193410.jpg this site for a good while now, and have been helped with saw maintenance, trouble shooting and general advice. Great website and really enjoy it! Just joined today and leaning how to navigate the site, stumbled across this thread and figured I'd post a few of my saws. Without any further ado.

    Oh I forgot to answer the question of my first saw, it was an echo cs-310. I sold it a while back but it was a good little saw. I really like stihl and echo saws, gotta love the German and Japan built motors, nothing like them IMHO.

    my first saw was a 1984 husky 266se I love that saw I got it when I was 12 years old and I went out and cut wood for hours for no reason other than I loved to run that saw.

    First saw was a Stihl MS 250 with an 18" B/C, and just recently picked up a Stihl MS 441 C-M with a 25" and a 32" B/C. Also grabbed a custom made Alaskan mill with it.

    First saw I fixed and used was a Mac 3200, terrible saw to work on, and not bad to use if you have nothing else to compare it too. My first saw I owned was a "broken" Stihl 017. As much as I hate on the saw for being wimpy and all, it serves it's purpose and I have put it through it's paces (12" oak on dull chain).

    IMG_20161230_160916.jpg First saw I bought was a cs590 Echo then a cs490. They seem to be love hate saws here on AS but they keep wood on the racks. A dolly 7900 is on my wish list.
