32:1 only? Is this what tree monkey suggests after he ports it?
If Scott put that sticker on there that would kinda surprise me. I know that Scott runs Schaeffer 7000 at 32:1 in everything, but I've also talked to Julian about the small saws not liking much over 40:1. My TM261 doesn't have that sticker. @redbull660, can you shed some light on this?

Scott had a couple of saws come back that were running 50:1 ultra. Why someone would run ultra is beyond me and especially in a ported saw. Anyway after that he just decided to just post across the board 32:1 on everything. And bought some stickers.

Personally yes I think 40:1 is better in smaller saws. But that can also depend on the oil that your using. I know some oils are really thing so maybe 32:1 would be better.

That said. It would be sooo easy to just go to the gas station with two cans. Mix one at 32:1 and mix the other at 40:1. Run each for a bit and see how they run. Then mix the gas together and you'll have 36:1 and try that. GO FROM THERE.

I know people just want a simple across the board answer, but it's just not possible. Saws are different! But still that won't be good enough for some people...Sooo the across the board answer is a safe 32:1 in everything.


btw - I've done a few deals with the seller. He is GTG. Nice saw. And it doesn't look like Scott will be doing any saws for a bit yet...still recovering from heart attack. So if you want a TM261.... (gen2 to boot)

Hey Redbull, I like your comparison videos, have you ever ran a Tree Monkey 261, and have it on video? I have seen your 661, 461 etc. just curious?

According to the PN on the sticker it is. Your price is very fair for this, considering a great price for the saw is $625. That's a $225 port job to your door. Add that to the fact you probably won't be able to get a new one from Scott, at least for a minute.

Just wondering why someone would buy a new saw, pay $350 to port it, and turn around and sell it.

Not necessarily this saw in particular.
