Very tough saws indeed. 1 of my 7-10s is an old forestry saw God knows what its been through in its 45 odd years but its probably my strongest. Unstoppable with a 20 inch barI have a 7-10 automatic that I gave $20 for a month or so ago. It had Sat outside in the rain for several years. Chain was rusted to the bar. Still had spark. Sprayed some penetrating oil in the recoil, fixed the fuel line, and took off the bar and chain. It started on the third pull. The old Macs are tough. Only way they die is if they get straight gassed or one of the wrist pin bearings grenades.
As for specs, a 1010 is 54 ccs. A 1010 super is 57 ccs.
A 7-10 a is 70 ccs.
Pro mac 700 is 70 ccs.
Plenty of sheet metal available around. The worst problem is magnesium corrosion on the bottom from sitting on concrete. Check closely. If you buy it, be sure to tear it down and give it a good cleaning. Many owners get rid of these saws because they stop running when the culprit is sawdust and dirt. I've purchased several "non-running" saws that were just clogged with grime from lazy owners. One of my best buys was a Homelite Super 2 and a McCulloch 310 for $1 at an auction. Sold the Homey for $25 and still have the 310 for limbing and pallet cutting. A great 50 ct. saw.Seller claims it runs well. Not sure about the cosmetics in terms of how much is dirt vs compromised metal.
It was a pretty nice saw, I would have held on to it had I not had so many saws at the time.How do ya like that 6-10? Hopefully 1 will show up around here someday oh and a sp81 oh and a 5400 and and and.....

I had a SP81 this spring. Awesome saw but I sold it as well because I did not have time to do the needed repairs.
