• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.

Picked up a Shindaiwa 550 in a lot of powerheads. Not complete but lots of usable parts. Piston is scored to all hell, looks straight gassed from the windows but can't get cylinder off yet to see more. Cylinder also looks scored badly. No idea on the bottom end yet. Saw has some grime but is not too bad. There was some old mix in it, though it had a lot of gas content. Old oil as well that may have taken on some water. Oil cap has rusting around the metal mating surface, but no sign of rust in the tank.

Serial: 4001745

Has a Walbro HDA29A M4 carb. Pretty clean from the outside.

Parts included:

Carb, Bosch spark plug, Flywheel (good shape), recoil, top cover, working throttle/fuel tank, choke switch, clutch cover (broken at brake flag area, NO brake included), muffler and hardware (muffler separated upon removal), handlebar and hardware, clutch components still on saw, oiler and parts, hoses, air filter, etc, ignition system and coil.

Most of the hardware is intact, but some washers and lock washers were not present upon removal.

I'd prefer to sell this intact as is, but may be willing to part it out. Photos will be coming in the next day or three.

I also have two 695 carcasses I will be going through in the coming weeks. If I can't make a runner out of them I will also put them up for sale.
