    Short story long:

    Was driving past a Pawn Shop and the little voice said, "Go in!! Go in!!!! (The little voice always says that.)

    Amoungst the Poulans and Craftsmans on the floor was a cherry little MS180. Some paint off the bar and a little dirty, but no scratches - not even many on the bottom. Very little carbon in the exhaust and no visible wear or scuffs on P&C. Couldn't be much more than a dozen tanks through it.

    A hundred bucks later and I'm on my way! A new plug and a quick trip through the carb and she lit right up. Idles and revs great.

    Always been leary of the pawn shop horror stories, but I couldn't leave that one behind. Got a friend at the local PD running the serial # to make sure it's not hot. After that, I guess I'll go cut wood.

    Been really itching for a rear handle 200. Bet this pushes me over the edge!

    You will like the 180, with the narrow chain it cuts fairly fast. Enjoy
