Home for lunch to find a large box at the front door.
One VERY low hour 2186 Jonsered (385XP with a better colour, less pregnant air box and better angled front handle). Three Oregon 3/8 0.058 bars in 20-22-26 inch lengths. 5 Oregon chains in 22 inch, 3 in 20 inch and 1 in 26 inch, all full chisel and most near 50 to 75% used- plus a couple of oddball .325 18 inch chains thrown in for good measure maybe.

Guess I can ease up on trying to find an 064 to cover this CC range now.

Nice score Bob.

I believe so. Belonged to an older gentleman, saw now getting too heavy for him, not quite aware of the full back story, but in my opinion- that power head is not responsible for wearing out all those chains and I cannot remember if the 2186 came out with a 24 a 26 or a 28 here from new on the shelf. I am guessing the 2186 replaced whatever used the 20 and 22 inch bars.
Was a third party proxy sale, on behalf kind of deal- with stipulations from the owner it had to go to someone that appreciated Jonsereds and wasn't going to wreck it. I was just lucky enough to know the guy that runs the shop he took it to.
I perhaps paid a bit less that a same age/condition 385XP might go for here, but like in a lot of places in the World, the orange saws are better known than the red ones and everyone came out happy in the end.

I picked up its little brother a couple months ago.View attachment 931256View attachment 931257
I lust after one of those as well!
Near 2pm here and I am just home for breakfast- been one of those days, but yes it is clean= like almost new clean! I have not had a chance to investigate that further, but usually if the front of the gas tank that protrudes to the front of the saw- if the top of that is clean where it adjoins the crankcase- odds are pretty good it is a low use saw, or has had a complete strip down and rebuild!

That 2172 was the last saw my dad's cousin bought. He lived around the corner from us when I was growing up. He is in a nursing home now with dementia. My wife's cousin bought it from a local shop about a year ago. He found it to heavy for what he needed, so I traded him a Husqvarna 350 and a ms250 Stihl for it. It will never leave here.

Bob, that's a very nice example that's been well cared for. It's condition is attributable to "pride of ownership" that's confirmed by the original owner's story. Sounds great as well! Good for you, and enjoy it. Max.

Not quite but the Redmax GZ7100 is the same saw and can be bought brand new. Made in Sweden.

Not even sure anyone bothers to import Redmax saws on our side of the ditch- think they offer a 9000 model as well, which is basically a rebranded 2188, but from what I have seen- their prices are not too far off the offerings of the other major players in the new saw market.
There are a few of the 20 and 21 Jonsered 70cc class saws kicking about here, the trick is finding good ones. Whilst they are basically a direct parts swap for their Orange sisters, some parts are peculiar to the Jonsereds- around the air filter, air box, intakes and chain brakes/front handles and parts here are pretty much unobtainable.
