I have a STIHL 170 that I use for general work around the yard and never had a problem in 15 years. I was talking to a neighbour about his slabbing off some Grevillea Robusta = Silky Oak and he told me he was going to buy a new mill and a new 880 chainsaw. I asked him what he was doing with his old saw and he said he gave it to his son. His son had a cheap Chinese 95cc Giant brand so they swapped and my neighbour offered the Chinese saw to me and a Alaskan mill and 42inch bar and 2 ripping chains, the saw is free but $100 for the 2 chains. Does anyone know if the saw is going to last long ? The saw runs ok and his son used it for a couple off months.

since it is free, it is a good year of operation ;-) you can always improve something in it
I talked to many Australian saw owners and read about the saw in woodworking forums and heard that parts are very hard to find. I’m worried that I’ll set up the mill and saw and it won’t last the cut. Does anyone know where to get parts for this saw or if it is a knockoff off a old Husky.

These are the best I have without taking the plastic off
