    I bought this at a garage sale as a project. It was a lot of fun. No carbon build up on the piston and seemed to be lightly used. I did a good cleaning replaced fuel lines and filter and it took off. I used it once to cut the logs in the picture. I started it up a few months ago just to hear it roar. I have no real use for anything this size. It needs to go to a good home. Full wrap handle and 30" bar.

    I will pull the bar and make it as compact as possible to ship. 225.00 + shipping

    The back story on this saw.

    I found it with two other saws at a garage sale. After getting it running I knew the only logs big enough to give it a work out were the ones in the pictures at top. There is no need for a 30" bar to cut firewood in Utah. The logs were on the property of a widow that I go to church with. This was going to be her firewood this year as a large part of her heat source. No one else in the group had a saw that would do this job. I really had no other use for this saw. Recently we had about 10 guys and two log splitters going to town on the stuff and she is set up. She was blessed by the firewood I was blessed to help and had a ton of fun running the green beast.

    Here is the kicker I paid $40 for the saw.

    It's true I didn't know the real value of the saw, but does it matter?

    Now you know the rest of the story.

    Merry Christmas

    Priceless, at the time you purchased the saw it was worth $40, at the time you sold the saw it was worth $250, and so on , you got a good deal and passed it on, Happy New Year

    As long as you’re satisfied with the sale, then that’s all that matters. If people are buying and flipping saws “to make the most profit” then their time is not worth near as much as mine is. Someone got a good deal here for sure and I’m glad they did, however I hope it wasn’t just someone who wants to flip it on EBay for crazy money. I hope it was someone who will appreciate it for years to come and then maybe pass it along for a good deal so someone else can enjoy it and so on.
