  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.
  • Please be aware that we have recently gotten a wave of users that, when researched, are found to be from Nigeria. They are trying to sell products and asking to be paid through Zelle or Venmo leaving users with no recourse if they don't ship the product. If you suspect this activity please contact admin and we will research their information to verify their location.

I don't know exactly which model this is. I can tell you it is 50mm bore and the serial tag has a SE on it. The muffler has the screw out screen. @SawTroll would ID this in a heartbeat. If you know let us in on it.
Anyway it is for sale. Obviously been sitting under somebody's bench for a long time. Needs a piston, clutch cover and fuel lines for sure. Top cover has a crack in it. Maybe more as you get into it. It does have spark. Fuel tank looks good and crank case also. The middle bearing on the crankshaft is tight. The cylinder looks like it will clean up with some work. What you see is what you get. I think $99 and I will pay shipping this time.

The first two digits of the model number appears to be 16, meaning that all but the cylinder bore points at a 162SE as it looks to me.

However, there is a very slim chance that the cylinder is the original, and the saw actually left the factory as one of the elusive 166 saws. Some of those surely were made before the 266 came out - but there is no evidence (as far as I know) that the 166 model ever got past the pre-production/test saw status before becoming the 266.

I do not know the meaning of the letters "KAS" on the tag, and the serial number doesn't tell me anything in this case (except that it is close to the number on another tag with "KAS" on it).

Aren't the KAS saws the models that were sold with a compressor attachment for an air bag?
Air bag = Nordfeller device (an inflatable felling wedge, inflated by exhaust gas from the saw).

You may be right, and I have been considering that possibility, without reaching at a conclusion yet. Normally the saws with that device simply said FE or FG on them instead of SE or SG though - but then I don't know if that was the case all the time and on all markets.

If this is the case it likely would explain the unusual muffler as well, which is adding to the likelihood that "KAS" has to do with the Nordfeller device.

By studying some IPLs, it became clear that the Nordfeller parts and some extra recoil cover decal options (assumed to say FE and FG on them, for lack of other possibilities) first were listed in the 1979-06 IPL: http://www.barrettsmallengine.com/partslist/husqvarna162-1979-06.PDF.

To me, this is an indication that any connection between the Nordfeller system and the "KAS" designation must have happened before (approximately) that time (June 1979).
