Nice. Is that an 80cc saw? Is that how Echo numbers them?
Yes sir, I really like it, also has a auxiliary oiler, be great for milling.
For chits n giggles, gotta do some comparative testing against a Stihl 460 and Hooskie 372. Or comparable saws.
Same wood, same chain. Same bar if possible.
Pretty cool. Saw cut like a hot knife thru butta.
Yeah I want to.compare it.to.some other saws lime a 281 and a 460/461 would be great to, probably have to do 24" to use the same chain as the stihls
Just for a general guide to see where the saw rates...
Looks very strong though.
Echo. Simple, nothing flashy, just a good solid worksaw.
This is an oldy that me and Mike Shetley ported together.
Thanks Jeff! I appreciate it!
Almost looked like we were trying to race through the log. I was just testing the 064 and happened to be in the background.
Pretty cool to get them booth in there Keith!
I did up a chain for my neighbors grandsons 271, it had no problem pulling a 20" 325 chain, and it sipped fuel, not the worse saw I've ran.
The good thing is you'll never sell it .
Stock, 460 for the win, ported changes the game.
That is true regarding an 044 vs a 372, but I would not make that bet against a 460 or a good running Hybrid.
Of course, you are welcome to bring one to any GTG I go to and we can compare! At the Upstate NY GTG we had a very hard 18" White Oak cant and were all running 24" Stihl RSL (off the roll square file) chain.
I was thinking of racing, 18" hardwood isn't the typical race wood .
How did they compare up there. I wasn't talking about an 044, but a 460, and as I was saying I meant racing.
I don't think I've ever ran a hybrid(so I can't say), but someone may remind me I have , but I have sold a few 460 cylinders to guys building them and I remember that .
In a softwood cant I believe you would be correct, but all the guys who were running 8 pin rims in that White Oak cant were not pleased that they did. That thing was tough, a real hardwood competition!
Hybrids can run very fast, and often have trouble running out of fuel. I had to put .070 jet carbs on mine. The smaller 440 case acts just like a crank stuffer. They have to be ported just right to have the torque of the ported 460s.
Won't be a fair race, 372 owns that class for a reason. They gain more then most models with porting.
I remember seeing videos in that log, and iirc that was the one they had a list of the times everyone ran.
8 pins don't always help your times in wood that hard with an aggressive chain that's set up for softwood .
