    I had intended to have this ported and run a 20" bar on it. The 562 does it so well and I already have it so...

    What you really need is a ported 2260.....

    You need to make an October road trip to farmer steve’s GTG, you could try out a ported smurf 9010.

    Sure, that and $427.40 and we'll have a deal. I'll even deliver it in two weeks.

    Well I tried.
    Seriously this is a great deal for a new 50cc saw with heat.
    I didn't even know you were stopping by, I'll make some fresh Joe for you :drinkingcoffee:.

    It's possible. I got a lot of stuff to swap with a guy in Allendale though too. If you two would both just come up to EJ you'd make it a lot easier on me...

    Not this one, but they're out there. The good thing is if none of mine have it I can keep an eye out for any size replacement with it.

    I've been through quite a few of these and have recently started modding the mufflers. If a buyer would like I can remove the cat plate on this one and weld it back up. It makes a noticable difference in heat at the muffler and throttle response. If I don't open the outlet the noise is actually not that bad.

    Might be interested. I am looking for something a little bit lighter than my old 257 Husqvarna. Any thoughts on how it would compare weight-wise?

    It's about a pound lighter, so not a lot on paper. I've used one on the same day as my son's 261(same chassis as your 257) and side by side they do feel like a different class of saw. If you are looking to replace your Husky I would reccomend it, but if you're wanting to use them both I don't think the differences are that great. Well, except for the heated handles:)
