    R11

    Nice looking bunch of saws guys!

    Here's some pics of my old R11 before I to started on it. It's on my bench now. Piston has some light scoring but I think it and the jug will clean up. It won't hold vacuum but I haven't torn it down enough to find the leak.

    This thing is well built. Not looking forward to taking the cylinder off though. It's going to be hard to get access to the jug bolts.

    It'll all be worth it when I hear it run!

    As far as I know, and have read on the Danish Partner distibutor site, E-lux bought the 3 Swedish companys in the late 70´s!

    In 2006 E-lux sold all the garden/wood companies, to a new established firm: The Husqvarne Group!

    Check this link: http://www.partner.biz/int/discover-partner/history/

    As far as re-badged Partner´s, I think there has been some in the Orange color too! One Ex. is the 49! That chassis has seen the use on many Partner saws, but not sure which one was the original Partner!

    i thought that mine was a p100, but it looks exactly like that inside and out except for the wrap handle and the dawgs... maybe thats what i have? mine has never been rebuilt, probably has 40 hours run time on it.

    would $200 be a good price for a good looking P100?

    This is my R16. I have never cut with it. I have it running correctly and will get it in the wood this summer. It seems read this saw was the progenitor of the 55????

    Neal, thats a nice saw and from what I understand the R16 was the granddaddy of a whole line of those "cube" saws. Look how close it looks to that Skil/Partner F55 that I posted.

    Take it out and give it a run, it might surprise you.

    All but a few of them seem to be rebadged Poulan saws so yes you can get them here in Poulan colors.

    I think the ones you point to are made in Italy or so I was told.
