    New lower price!

    Buy one or all three for the price of one typically priced MS290 on CL.

    Updated: I have three all stock and nearly all OEM Stihl MS180C PHO saws for sale. $95 each, or $90 each if you buy more than one, plus shipping. None of these are modified. They are all complete and OEM, except they do not have spark screens in the mufflers, they do not have a bar and chain, and they now have new AM bar covers, new bar studs and nuts, and they have new original non-C type chain tensioners. I swapped out the original dial-o-matic C style chain tensioner side covers on these. You can get a new low profile 0.050 16 inch GB B&C from Left Coast Supply for $22 on sale, or provide your own B&C and start cutting. These will accept either 0.050 Picco (low profile), or narrow kerf 0.043 Picco B&C, and run a 12 to 16 inch bar. The sprockets will drive either type of Picco chain.

    Paypal only please. Or cash on my porch. Photos below.

    They all run. Everything works as it should.

    Note that the side covers now have standard AM side covers, dual bar studs/nuts, and conventional screwdriver adjusted chain tensioners.

    These all had 140# or better compression when they were cold and before I got them running. Likely the rings were sticky and will gain compression when used with a good synthetic FD type oil. I did not see any signs of scoring when I had the plugs and mufflers off. These are 32cc saws with clamshell engines. The carbs are all fixed jet, and came that way from the factory. You can replace the carbs with fully tunable Zama carbs on Ebay typically selling for $10 each. These are good little runners.

    I'm tempted to buy one of these from you. I don't need it by any means, but could be nice for the really small stuff.

    I don't think you will be sorry. Right tool for the right job makes life easier and it is small enough to have along when there isn't room for a bigger saw. Short bar and chains are easier to maintain. If u have a cut here and there that could likely dull the chain another reason to go to something like this. A "beater saw". I normally keep 1 in each of all 3 trucks I use.

    Send me a PM if you want one. I am going to list these on CL locally. Trees are falling like mad here of late and there is a high demand here for small cheap saws.

    Might you be interested in some trading for 1 ?
    I expect to have the standard chain adjusters and side covers in my used parts collection, likely enough for all 3. I do have a few new 12" Stihl .o43 bars and woodland pro chains to go with. Have some aftermarket new "14 also in .050, and lightly used 14" .043 Stihl bar. I think there is 1 or 2 Stihl 16" bars out there also. Might have some other things u could use I can trade. Chains, bars, Stihl sprockets and other parts. Might go better selling them ready to rock.

    I have not been on AS for a while, sorry for the delayed response. I have a box of small mount B&C, so I do not need those. I ordered up the side covers and adjusters for these, so I do not need those either. I usually sell and shop saws PHO as B&C are expensive to ship, and they can be had for pretty cheap from places like Left Coast. But thanks for the offer.

    I ordered and received 3 AM bar covers, threaded studs, bar nuts and chain tensioners. I upgraded the saws yesterday and they are now ready to slap a B&C on and cut with. Same price as before, $95 for one, or $90 for two or more, plus shipping.

    Or if you want the C model twist grip toolless side cover, I can put that back on them as well. Either way, same price. But you will need to get an adjuster wheel with the toolless side cover configuration.The way they are now, they do not need anything other than a B&C. And gas and oil...

    I have two interested parties in these saws at this time, so they could all be spoken for.
