Echo CS-300. Had no chain tensioner on the machine, it was an adjuster built into the bar. Forgot what that system was called.

Definitely earned its keep. Beat it up for 6 years or so, sold it to a buddy for 75$. Probably still running. That chain tensioner sucked though. Usually too loose or too tight. Hard to get the happy place.

*edit* The tensioner is called Intenz, from Oregon. Thanks Google, now I can sleep.

Stihl 026 that came with the property we bought from my wife's grandparents. View attachment 904758
It was a complete dog. It couldn't pull an 18" .325 bar in ash. That's what led me to AS. Turns out the spark arrestor was plugged. Then I couldn't leave it alone. I muffler modded it and set the squish to .017". Pulls that 16" 3/8 bar really well. Thanks for the CAD!
