    I've been doing a ton of looking and asking around for some treasures. Did run across an older Homelite 925 with a 36" bar. Saw is complete. May need carb rebuild. Any idea what one might be worth? Thanks, Bryan

    Looks like 3 are on ebay and the bidding has basically just started. I was told by the guy he bought it new in 1982. Anyone know if it's worth the time?

    Click the checkbox for "completed auctions" and you can see what items acutally sell for. The SXL-925 is actually a desirable saw with decent value.

    Here's my attempt at a search. SEARCH. Looks like a good runner will bring about $150. I would guess that a nice clean copy could bring $200.

    Definitely Worth the Time!


    Bryan --
    These are very solid saws. Yours is [1] owner w/ long, 36" bar!
    80cc, I believe, and very well constructed.

    Intertec Manual has a section on them for service/maintenance.

    If all you need is a carb job and full service,
    Fix this Boy good & smile!

    Yeah I agree, but I would love my SXL 925 alot more if it had a decomp on it. It's a pain to pull over and start when it's hot and the gas has been boiling in it's tank.

    Runs like a mad bear though.
