    At the other end of the spectrum I got a tiny Partner from BIL, very few hours on it. I'll try to add some photos later. I think it is either a Mini III or IV. Had not been run for years, fresh fuel and away it went

    34cc of screamin' power. This has some very interesting features. Instead of bar studs it has a bolt that passes through the chain break and bar then into the body of the saw. It also routes the exhaust through the clutch cover which appears to be a heat sink with cooling fines. Overall it is very similar to the Stihl 015. I haven't had a chance to run it in wood yet. It might be a nice little limbing saw

    Started up my partner 400, partner 500. I have a p85, r16 and more I need to look at. That little 400 is a screamer.

    Neat looking little saw. We’re partners and pioneer saws more popular in canada?

    That little guy isnt really a Partner. The story on those is interesting to say the least. That looks to be the Skil version, rather than the Trail/Frontier one which actually ended up owned by Electrolux

    Both of these guys are more or less the the same saw.

    There was a jonsered that looked like the ones above too the tree trimmers and climbers were using these cheap saws. Maybe a branded jonsered is a redmax?
