    It’s no pro saw, but then again I’m no pro....

    Picked up an Echo CS-400 for $25 as a “non runner”, after cleaning up their butchered muffler mod and carb mod I ended up with a running saw thanx to some advice from a few members here

    Lucked up a couple saws yesterday. Met up to but a Poulan 3400 and the guy brought his other saw a Solo 611. Said it needed trigger work. Gave $20 a piece. Had solonrunning before I parking lot. Put new fuel line on the poulan. Both run and oil like new ones.

    300 bucks for six top Huskies.

    A 55 that runs great after some pulling. A 55 that cranks, revs, but dies out. A 257 that cranks, revs and dies. A 266 that doesn’t go. A 268 that cranks, revs, and obviously just needs diaphragms. And a 142 that looks great, but has no fuel line!

    Saws all pull 150lbs compression. Nuts.

    I bought the 193 new for 325.00 as it sits with a extra chain and a week after bought the nearly new 192 of of Craigslist for 150.00 with extra bar and chain that are new as well.. I’m still pretty stoked to say the least !! . I plan on keeping the 193 stock until the Warranty is up but Last night I drained the fluids on the 192 and it will be turned into a fine NorthWest mantle piece by my dude Rich the saw king! No body touches my machines Other than brian the diabolical wizard at my local stihl shop that dials in my little issues like no other!! But I wouldn’t let anybody other than Rich get my girls naked! #westcoastmusclesaws #buckin&brappin

    I ran this saw when I worked for a logging company in the mid 90's. It ran really good back then. Its kinda cool that I found it after 25 years.

    Not sure this qualifies, but I'm pretty happy with it. I found this non-running Poulan Pro 455 (same as Pioneer P45) on Craigslist for $50. It also came with a new in the wrapper 20" bar. After $18 for a carb kit, fuel hose and filter it's running fine - this is probably the 4th such saw I picked up cheap due to old fuel problems. Thank heavens for folks that let their saws sit with fuel and are too lazy to attempt even a simple fix; one great saw pick-up didn't even need the carb cleaned, just some fresh gas! :cheers:

    Yes it has the ports, don't know how much more performance or valuable it makes it, but it sounds like it ain't bad - looks like I was more lucky than I thought, including an OK gas cap :rolleyes:

    Pretty nice old Poulan 3500 Timbermaster, $47 out the door.
    Fuel lines were apparently routed wrong and squished by the filter that tightens down with two nuts, and it wouldn't run. But fired with a little mix poured in the carb.
    P&C look good enough from what I could see.
