    This is disappointing.

    Hello Mr. Snelling,

    We are in receipt of your email. Our computer records do not go back far enough to look up an exact date on your saw. The 044 was made from 1988-2001. That’s about all I can tell you. Thank you for contacting STIHL.

    Best Regards,
    Michael

    I would keep it as is. It is only going to get more valuable . Some thing you can pass onto your heirs. I have a MS 200 that has never been fired . No box but the saw is still virgin.

    Equally modded it should take the 462c ... here’s a video by Hotsaws101 where he compares the 2 saws ... He’s an excellent faller and a very very good builder from the West Coast... enjoy !

    I have an 044 that I bought in 88, it came with a black lever and no baffling at all in the muffler.
