    Not Strato motors. Just regular, like they have been for a decade or more except now a fixed jet carb on one needle as a change and lower rpm limited coil. Pretty much the same otherwise.

    Is the chain adjuster on the front of the case on these saws?

    Yep, Dave is a Very Reputable seller.

    I bought my 3120XP from him, and have been Very Happy with it

    Note, Ignore the owners manual about using Choke AND Throttle Lock for Cold starts.

    Choke ON, Throttle Lock OFF

    about 3 pulls, she will snort,

    Choke OFF

    2-3 pulls she will wake the county:)

    Try the above first, your saw may like something different, I just about had a coronary trying to start that Beast using the Choke and Throttle lock, which is what my "Old Reliable" 266XP LIKES, but not the 3120XP. Even with the decomp valve pulling on that thing very many times will flat wear you out


    Doug :cheers:

    Received, thanks Dave. Forgive my questions because I'm new to professional grade saws but when I move the saw side to side, it sounds like something rattling inside. I haven't done anything besides admire the heft. I'm ordering the bar and chains today.

    I'll read through the manual and try to go through the saw as much as I can while I wait on the bar/chain.

    More than likely you are hearing the fuel filter move around in the tank.
    Open the cap and have a look. It's a weighted fuel filter with a flexible hose so it falls to the bottom of the tank in what ever position the saw is in.

    Thanks, that was one of the sounds. There is also a rattling near the front of the saw. Any suggestions on what to check?

    Do you have a bar and chain on it yet?
    If you don't it could be the clutch drum / sprocket moving around a little which is normal.

    If that's not it try moving it around and looking it over real well.

    Hi. That would be the bar oil filter pick up. Again a tube with a metal piece sliding around. Once filled with oil that sound should disappear.

    Be safe. Enjoy.
