OP I read through this whole mess and while you did get a saw that had issues your manner and attitude in handling this whole thing leaves one saying....."really"?
There is not a thing wrong with this NEW replacement saw except how you see it in your mind , get over it .

My Dad has a German made Dolmar 421 he asked me to try and sell. He's had it about a year and a half or 2 years ago and used it twice (about a tank and a half of 40:1 Trufuel). He has glaucoma and can no longer use a saw.

He wants $250 plus shipping from Michigan. The saw is like brand new, and comes with 2 bars and 2 chains. The CAT is out of the muffler.

Nope! Only time it has been run was to test fire and tune at the dealer. It's been rainy here and I'm still not sure if I want to keep it.

You read all 28 pages and question the OP's state of mind? The poster doth protest too much, me thinks.:)

just sold my minty 420 :( miss it already ---perfect go to easy starting saw ....
Ran my 420 today. It had been sitting for a few months. 4 squirts on the primer bulb, 1 pull with choke on, one pull with choke off, kick her off high idle and purring like a lion. Smooth, effortless.

I never want to be without a 420/421. I want another just to make sure of that.
