Guys,
I picked this saw up recently for cutting some larger rounds
But....it's just a little more Saw that my back will handle
It's in good shape with a new 24"husky bar
Starts and runs perfect!
I bought it without thinking about the size and weight. ...
I was very impressed by how it cuts and How it Sounds...Wicked!!! 20150520_173951.jpg 20150520_173956.jpg 20150520_174154.jpg 20150520_174140.jpg 20150520_174101.jpg 20150520_174011.jpg

It's Not a show piece...But it's Nice!
Has the heavy av springs,I don't know if they are factory or if this is a 288xp vs a lite for sure


Now....I'm a Noob to the whole hp saw thing
I just enjoy cutting and need something bigger than my 026

I'm looking for a 60 to 70 cc pro grade saw
Husky or still
I'm located in Western NC

262xp
272 xp

Or
Stihl 20150520_173951.jpg 20150520_173956.jpg

Interesting. How different is the 262 cylinder from a 261? Does the hybrid retain the 261 two shoe clutch, or did you switch it over to the 262 three shoe?

again, its a 262xp with a 261 chassis /case ....so yes, the 3 shoe clutch is included... the 262xp and 261 cylinders are identical I think, and the 261 used a dished piston to detune the saw. my dad has a 261 so I might play with that one eventually and investigate whats inside of it. I think the 257 cylinder is different, but I don't know for sure....

mine has an oem piston and new caber ring....with squish optimized by adjusting the case I had 165 psi compression without breakin

sorry to the OP to threadjack, but we are keeping you post at the top until skippyshins gets here :)

Guys
What a response!
I got a really good deal on it,one of the reasons I jumped on it before I researched the size and weight
She runs really good and sounds great.
Original cylinder and piston from what I can tell...but I'm a noob
I am taking it over to rattlers maybe tomorrow for a good inspection
I'll be able to post more info on it then


I'm really looking to get a light saw to use that won't cause so much havoc with my back
