It’s not chainsaws but I acquired a wheel horse charger 12 automatic with a appearing function able sickle mower, cub cadet 106 with a working mower, Allison charmers 914 shuttle with mower ( bad head gasket) and a Allis charmers b110 that smokes with two mowing decks that I still have to pick up because I didn’t have enough room on the trailer.picked them all up for $250.

That's a rockin deal. I was looking for a Saban sickle bar for one of my JD"s for a long time. A farmer friend used to have me mow the sides of her drive' 1/4 mile long each way. Then she got her drive paved. It used to be easy, I put one tire on the edge of the gravel, the other was right against the corn rows. Last time I mowed, I took my 52" walk behind because it's much faster than the JD's. I made it about 20 yards and the whole machine dropped into a ditch, had to pull it out with the truck. When the guy paved the drive way he dug 3' deep drainage ditches. If I had a sickle bar I could just run down the drive way and reach right to the edge of the corn fields. But, it's not worth my time and tearing up my equipment for $100. I told her if she wanted me to mow the drive it had to be done every other week. She only wants it done once a year before her big family dinner at Thanksgiving.

My first suckage of the year. Actually, it's probably only semi-suckage. Was sold to me as a 61 that had no spark for $100. I picked it up to hybrid it into a 272 for my buddy. Upon further review it's actually a 162se. I pulled the muffler and the piston has seen better days but she blows 150+ on my comp gauge. As for it not having spark, well, I pushed the plug wire all the way down on the plug and TAH DAH!! I'm very impressed with it so far given its age/condition and look forward to seing how it compares to my 66/272 hybrid. Also...functioning metal brake lever. ❤❤

They are now, but before it all combined under one roof Shindaiwa was their own product...well-made clam-shell designs mostly (415, 416, 450, 500. I think they had a few designs by the end that had split cases (like the 488, 680, 695, 757). Today, they are pretty much red versions of the Echo, which is not saying anything bad. I have rebuilt 3 of these clam-shell ones so far and I love how easy they are to work on and how well they run. They make it seem like I know what I am doing!

My local Makita dealer dropped Makita for Shindaiwa or whatever its called. Thats how i got the new 6100 for cost!!! They were clearing the shelves. They said they have have great experience with the brand.

This might suck if you like old pioneer p-series saws, a running p-26 for 45 CDN. Has the mandatory cracked air filter cover, and the awful 1 screw mixture carb which is plugged up on the high side. But it starts very easy and idles down like a champ with less than one turn on the mixture screw. Oils great, excellent spark and shiny cylinder bore. IMG_20210404_165058.jpg
