Well, it was sold almost 3 years ago. Hard to say what has been done in that length of time, and where it has done it.
How does it run now?

I’m tearing down my dad’s old Stihl 028 WB chainsaw from my childhood and planning on doing a full rebuild. I emailed Stihl my seven digit serial number and was told that they don’t have production info for any saw made before 1999. He also mentioned that the saw must have been made before 1980 because they transitioned to a 9 digit serial number at that time.

Anyone have any suggestions in how to determine the date of manufacture? I know my dad bought it used in 1992 from our local hardware store and the manual that was given to him with the saw is copywrited in 1990. For anyone interested, the saw cost him $182 in 1992.

Edit: Spoke with a really helpful Stihl rep who was on the assembly line in 1980. By sending him a pic of the chain tensioning bolt, he confirmed it was made in 1979.

Invalid Serial Number. Please enter correct serial number. [120516677]


Invalid Serial Number. Please enter correct serial number. [229842102]

Can I get a check on a serial number? I just bought an 046 and I have a feeling its a 460 and would like confirmation on the model. Being that it's an old saw from a third party, I'd like to see if it's stolen as well. Hope you can help, thanks.

I appreciate the help. Out of curiosity where it says it expired 11/10/2008, is that when the registration was no longer to that tree company or is that the warranty? I don't want to be running a hot saw, I purchased it because it was pretty beat and its a saw that I've wanted for a while, especially the older model. If that's the case, I have his address and proof of sale.
