I actually have been considering selling my John Deere branded echos...but I can’t do it
You might as well jump on that Poulan Pro 475, cheaper.
Good lord, must be a collector thing, where`s the eye wash bleach?
Who over paid that much?
Someone must have really wanted it. Realistically, my ported one isn't worth even half of that. Having said that, you couldn't buy it from me for more.
Someone was throwing this bar away where I work. The security guy snagged it & gave it to me. It's just broke at the tail & one side of that has a slight bend to it. I think it will straighten out.
I just moved six three weeks ago.
Except the 30. I really liked that little twerp.
I made these shelves to hold the glass panels in trade for the Poulan 4200 & 3000. It's what I do to somewhat justify having more than two saws.
Dang man those are nice!

Wow that’s some real good work. That’s be real cool for displaying saws too... as long as the glass is strong enough
Thank-you. It would make a nice display for some small saws. I wouldn't mind a few saws showcased in the house but the boss might think otherwise.
Oldest son (6) has been working on this homelite xl. It’s his first real project saw. He has started others in the past but this is the farthest we’ve gotten together with one. Gotta get a carb kit and change out some fuel lines. Anyone happen to have an air filter laying around? It literally crumbled apart in my hand...I thought it was oily dust cluster at first lol. Also gotta get a new chain for it because him and his brother ground 2 cutters completely off
You can buy a pc of foam at any craft store and make one, it's very small anyway. If you still have the aluminum keeper it makes a great template.

I got the pioneer 650 as a trade in on a used MS360.

That thing looks brutal.
What age is to be considered vintage by most here?
Very cool old saw. I have a 600 and 602 i just got running.

Fired up my Pm700 the other day too. Don’t miss the vibes but man I missed that sound!! Sat for close to 2 years and fired up nice.
Nice Pioneer! Like the look of those.
Lone Star, those little Homelites are cool little economy saws. Pretty simple, once you learn what to take off and in what order to get them in and out of their cases. Make sure there is a limiter in the oiler tank impulse line. Older ones had a piece of porous brass or aluminum that the duckbill valve slips over. Newer ones have a plastic barb with a tiny hole in it. You can see it when you take the oil cap off. Its near the top of the tank. Without the duckbill valve and the limiter, it will give oiling problems. There is another site if you google homelite parts. He has manuals and IPLs that he allows you to download. This may help you some with the kids project.
Dont think I'm supposed to give out names of other sites for some reason, but maybe you can look up member undee77 on here.
For those not following the Homelite thread, Arnold Whisnant passed away last night after a short battle with cancer. Please send a prayer for his family if you can spare one.
Sorry for his family's loss and sorry to all you mates of his
