    Who's built one yet?

    Sounds like a fun project for the winter... I've got no business with a saw that large... but I want one.

    Might have to see if Santa will bring me one :spam:

    If you ain't got one yet, why not?

    (And post 070 and 090 pics!)

    can the jug be replaced with a 90 unit on that 70 parts kit deal?

    You ought to see if Santa will bring you a 66 or a 395. Then you can have the power you've been dreaming of!

    All parts on these two saws are interchangeable. The only differences are the piston/jug and the clutch. Both 090 clutch and piston/jug WILL go on the 070 kit, however when I spoke with baileys I was told that the 090 components will not be available until christmas.

    Yup, those are #1 on the list :)

    395 would be the top choice... Although the sheer amount of 660's out there makes it tempting :chainsaw:

    I guess I am wrong I thought the crank and rod were beefer on the 090. Yes the 090 jug goes on but I believe the 070 crank is not the same as the 090.

    Hey Lakeside what will your shop say if a customer comes in with a parts kit and wants it assembled?

    Through the store - $60 an hour, no warranty.... and the time taken to decifer any the chinese<> english instructions are billed at the same rate. Hmmm.. if I charge you 8 hours on top of the $600 for the kit.. you could have a brand new 660 or a real nice used 880...


    I still don't think it makes sense. I wouldn't spend $600 for a factory assembled chinese 070... If you really want one just buy a nice used saw, or.. for less money a rough one for a couple of hundered and fix it up.

    Thanks Andy. BTW I don't want a Chinese knock off of a Stihl or anything else. I would love to have an 090, for what I don't know but that is another subject, but I want an original not a Chicom rip off.
