    I vowed and declared- NEVER would I own one! :surprised3:
    Probably only one rung higher than the WOOD BOSS on the least desired saw ladder.

    Then, somebody dropped this off and said- my son's father inlaw gave him this- I took it off of him because it has no chain brake, I got him a newer safer saw. I know you like tinkering with old saws, so you can have this one.

    If the damn thing weren't so heavy- I would just about wrap it up as is and send it over to our favourite old Stihl cleaner upper. :)

    Geographically speaking- the saw is closer to the bottom of the World now than if I sent it over the ditch to Tom the Pom. :buttkick:

    My mistake... I looked at a globe and see that you are ~45 degrees, South New Zealand is south of Tom. Thanks!!

    Sure does...... and on the fuel that was in it!
    Smelled like paint thinners, but that old dear just drank it down and fired up like it was just mixed.

    It is your typical old,heavy, shaky LOUD Stihl.... but it goes!

    Hahah Bobs the master windup merchant, he’s had practise! Being an overly polite typical English guy, cheekiness isn’t my forte, but give me some time with him and I’m sure it will flow more naturally bahah

    I have a few running stihls I picked up lately, I swore I’d never own a Stihl coming from a Husqvarna owner since 1970. But there not too bad of a saw. Something different to play with.

    My 041 farm boss,

    Na, I would never accept anything from an Aussie- free or not- would never know where it had been! :laugh:
    See you can tell you are an imposter- an Aussie could at least spell Aussie!

    He is just a fellow Kiwi of an age that grew up with these terribly unsafe saws and still has all of his limbs, gifting a saw to another of the same vintage, because although the gifter is a mechanic by trade and does own a couple of bigger more modern Stihls, has no real interest in collecting them or restoring older models, but does have an interest in keeping his heirs intact- his son is of an age that grew up spending more hours watching a 4-6" screen on a device that ruins their posture and gifts them RSI in their thumbs! That generation rely more on the Occupational Health & Safety legislation to keep them safe, rather than common sense and practical training smattered with a bit of experience.
