    Late Black Friday early Christmas sale:). Makita (dolmar) 7900, like new, ran non ethanol and Baileys full synthetic 2 cycle oil, probably 6-7 tanks. Has a mild muffler mod, just another outlet added to front of muffler, inside of muffler is still stock. Really like this saw, great torque/power, smooth, easy to start, usually starts in 2 pulls cold, one if I can push choke in fast enough. But got spoiled with auto tune, I change elevation a lot and kinda ocd about the tune being perfect. Power head only, price includes shipping to lower 48. $700, I’ll lower price $10 a day until it sells (to a point) , only trade I would consider would be a 572 Husqvarna.

    That’s the way the new Maktia’s come. Outside looks like old style 7900 but they have the slr tube inside.

    Interesting it has the updated chainbrake handle.
    That was a recall in Canada, dont think for USA.
    I could be wrong
    Nice saw BTW.

    I just got the 6100, and love it to pieces! Can imagine this one is just as sweet.

    A 6100 has great power for a 60cc saw, the 7900/7910 feels way better in hand to me, because of that I've never bought one. I do however have 5 or 6 running 7900/7910 and 2 parts saws if that tells you how I feel about them :).

    Will this comfortable run a 3/8 pitch full skip on a 28” bar? Lets say hardwood?

    Probably pushing it a bit eh?

    the dolmar 79xx series and the 64xx series have been my primay go to saws for the past 20 years. Other than one base gasket failure on the oldest 7900, I have not had any issues with mine. That sure was a sneaky problem to find though.

    Swing by and run one, I have a large elm log here you can put one in.
    I normally run them with a 24 or a 20, but they have no problem with a 28 full comp chain, but not with an 8 pin(funny story).
    Here's a 28 on one of my stockers, this was taken this spring, just dropped the tree for a client and cut the top off the driveway.
