• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.
  • Please be aware that we have recently gotten a wave of users that, when researched, are found to be from Nigeria. They are trying to sell products and asking to be paid through Zelle or Venmo leaving users with no recourse if they don't ship the product. If you suspect this activity please contact admin and we will research their information to verify their location.

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. $660 , only trade I would consider would be a 572 Husqvarna.

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 :).

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.

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

Probably pushing it a bit eh?

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.
