795, and there is a 790 there too. Neither one will be leaving unfortunately! the 795 is my go-to big saw.You're absolutely right! I think I see a 797 or 795 on the far right that looks to be taking up way too much space. Or any super pro saws, they must be taking up the most space haha. I'd love to help you clear some out

Looks very clean! I just brought one home last night. Not the nicest though, some moderate scoring on exhaust side and a cracked handlebar. Missing several things as well, might just use it for parts. I'm going to pull the cylinder later to see if I can save it. I've got to finish the 575 that's on the bench first though. Then on to the pm610 and pm805....and the 1-70 once the tilly kit comes in. I need to pick up/make a smaller mandrel bit to use when polishing exhaust ports. Most of it turns out really well but I'm having a little trouble with the corners. They're still rougher than I want them to be.Been working on a 288
It may have been easier to submerge that one for a week and then come back to it.This 084 is dirty. Took me 45 mins to split the case after is was torn down because all the case bolt holes were stuffed with crusty saw dust. Digging them out was a pain. Most difficult case split I’ve experienced.
Work it out; maybe needs a new fuel or air filter? Or the tune isn't right. My newly acquired 257 wouldn't oil; I R'nR'd the oiler so many times, but nothing i did worked. Didn't want to spend a Ben on a new oiler, so I took a chance on a $30 ebay refurb and it works! I may send my oiler to the guy see if he can fix it. Only other thing I've done to it is clean it really well and replace the carb gaskets, sealing collar, and put on a mesh filter. Retuned the carb and it hammered yesterday with an H47 full comp 20-inch BnC.ive got a sweet 257 that runs like a beast for a minute then gos on unemployment for a bit
Good deal. Those saws make good power. I would chose one over a 660 any day.Finally got a chance to use the 181/288 that I ported (photos earlier in this thread) Thanks again to @Yotaismygame for the suggestions.
Went milling with it, put 6-8 tanks through and it seems pretty strong. Pulled a 34" bar and skip chain no problem. Oil output seems stingy even with the pump turned all the way up. (it'd be enough to buck with, but i'd expect it to be slinging oil off at max output) Wood was English walnut (hard and wet)
Anyways, need to hack apart my spare muffler and put a big deflector on it, then i'll be good to go. Also - I was going to do a pop up piston, but seeing how much compression it makes as is, I don't know if I really need to.
