    The PP 505 isn't that old - introduced in 1993, and terminated just a few years ago.

    It is the same saw as the original Jonsered 2083 (not 2083 II).

    The 505 I have listed was purchased in 90 or 91 I was told
    Acre's site says the 2083 is 76.5 cc's. The 505 is 81ish

    No, they both are 82.4cc - but the 2083 II is just 76.5cc, like the 2077, P7700 ("family father") and PP445......

    Btw, there also were some 71 and 65 cc saws in the same "family" (Partner and PP, not Jred).

    It is easy to find out when that 505 was made, just post the serial number, or at least the first four digits.....:)

    The 2083 specs listed there is the 2083 II, even though it doesn't say so....

    The original 2083 was sold for a very short time only, in the US.

    It is a very good sourse for initial info on a saw, but you can't trust everything that is there, quite a few mistakes actually......

    The 505 really comes alive with a dual-ring piston like an 066 piston. It's a bit of work but well worth it. The 505 is a great saw.

    Has anyone thought about giving awards to the members that have given so much of there time to help others? SawTroll has over 52,000 posts on this site and all of them are informative. I vote that we do a "you dah man" contest and all of us pitch in a coin or two. :clap:

    Thanks, but only if you consider saying good morning and reporting the weather down in the "Good morning" thread informative! :D

    By the way, the PP 505 was a Poulan Pro version of the Jonsered 2083, and basically was a Partner design made at the Husky factory! o_O

    "Other Forums", then "Off topic" - not in the "Chainsaw" forum. ;)

    NO WONDER I BOUGHT IT!
    I'm an American, born to a German and an English couple, delivered by a Japanese doctor and baptized by an Italian minister.
