Well Happy new year!
2018 was a good run but now time for a new you suck-2019-
Now 6 years for me with AS. Not the most prolific poster here but still enjoy the "sport".
Started with 1 poulan in 1980. In the 90's I picked up 3 homelite: XL2, 707d & 7-19C
Now have 61 saws total , most all except a few have been made to run. Mostly recovered from E-10 poisoning.
see list and pix @ below links

My second suckage find for 2019 is the MS440 full wrap that I picked up for $260 at a local pawn shop. Certainly well used, but has a clean piston skirt, OEM cylinder, 155 psi of compression, and a like new 25" bar and chain. The cylinder cover was trashed, so I replaced it with a AM unit I had on hand. Still needs some outside dawgs and chain catcher before its next trip to the wood pile, but before then it needs a good bath.

I could never suck as bad as you guys.
But it was a pretty exciting day for me.

I got a couple of new chains and a bar for my Shinny 491 at the outlet store. A new 20" power care bar for $7. Not shown in the picture, but it's a 4-rivet pro-lite style.
And a new Oregon H78 chisel chain to match for $5.
And for the existing 18" bar, a new Oregon Speedcut narrow kerf 95txl072g chain for another $5.

Then....after that.....the completion of my 25-35-50-70 cc four saw plan.
The final piece to the puzzle.

The creme de la creme

A dirty old 40th week of 2008 model Hooskavarna 372XP that started right up after sitting on the shelf for who knows how long, out the door for an even fifteen Jacksons.
And so far no detectable leaks. A little burn on the bar tip, but unsharpened chain in nice condition.
I did break the muffler gasket though :nofunny:

Thanks! Certainly not as nice as your score though.

You really really suck!

I really don't know what these old saws are worth. But I don't have to do a thing to it. It was all there and running.
And it seems like a pretty light saw for it's size(not counting the heavy-ish bar). Gotta see if I can make the new 20" power-match bar off the 660EVL fit it.

20190127_114040.jpg I located these about 2 weeks ago but wasn't excited because they were about 35 miles away. I happened to be going close by Friday and the guy met me and I got both of them for $50. I know they're clamshells and I bought without much inspection but they were covered in grit like they'vebeen sitting in a shop for awhile. The 039 has a nice bar and like new Stihl chain but the filter cover was off and the filter missing. I dumped the gas and added new gas and to my surprise it started right up but didnt run well. I adjusted the carb to factory settings and it screams. I have a filter ordered and I'll try it in wood when it arrives.
The 180 didn't have gas so I put new gas and it fired but wouldn't accelerate properly so I cleaned the carb and installed a kit and it runs good. I sharpened the chain and I'm going to try it out later today.
I'm hoping for an easy flip or trade bait.
