    I saw this beat up old beauty on OfferUp.
    says it ran two years of course.
    but anyways I remember seeing these saws when I was a kid I think if I remember correctly the saw is somewhere around 89cc or something ridiculous right?
    Cult like following?

    Overall a nice looking Super 250 and with the desirable (to me) full wrap handle. I'd jump on that one. Good luck, Max.

    lol I'm like this with everything. Imagine this I'm a sober alcoholic! We over do everything.
    I have that old echo too. I like old stuff.
    But I'll probably pas on this as its 3 hrs round trip into Phoenix and at 17mpg at best it's not a free ride.

    This thing is a lot bigger when you see it in person what a beast feels like it has some really strong compression to
    For $35 I don't even care if it runs it's not like I'm ever going to use it it's just really cool okay I might get it running and go play around with it but I'm not going to use it everyday just what a cool saw man

    Super 250 saws are very peppy saws for their 87cc and will pull a long bar too.

    Now this is a chainsaw holy crap thisthis is this is a big saw.. heavy but considering it's size not really.
    I dumped the gas out. This thing must hold a gallon of gas geez. I love how they put a sticker on it that says handle with extreme care somebody somebody thought the saw I was pretty dangerous. Pics sucks I'm on my old phone bad camera .

    I'm almost dumbfounded!!! it runs !!!!!a little bit of messing around and it runs !!stalls out a little bit on the high idle but I'm just surprised it started at all. I put it in some wood to but it's getting late so I can't be out here screwing around with a saw this loud. this is a loud saw I took some videos of it running all upload them and Link them if anyone's interested

    Runs good for a saw expected not to. All I had was 20:1 mix for my old echo on hand probably not good for a saw that wants 40 or 50
    Quick video here of it running

    Took it out and cut with it for a few. Feels more like a 4 stroke . Did good enough but needs work. But for $35 it's awesome
    Apparently there were bullets in the wood that I was cutting people must have been a shooting at the tree before after it was Slash cut

    These old big macs dont turn a ton of rpms. But probably needs a carb clean and tuning nonetheless. If it's a tillotson carb kits are readily available and cheap.
