.........the husky 2100/2101 is basicly the same saw.

it ran from 1976-1990.

there were alot of little changes along the way, but nothing major.
the bore/stroke remained the same through out.

it looks like chain brakes werent available until 1979 .......





where chain brakes options on these monsters? my serial number indicates that it was made in 1984. but she has no chain break .

most of the ones I every worked on were fuel governed to 11k or less. It's a non issue because it won't rev higher than that in a cut

Any idea what the 2100CD's go for these days? I have one and I've been trying to decide if it's worth parting with or not...

In the woods.
Its value depends on the saws over all quality. Value could range from 200 -350.00 for a used saw. Occasionaly e-bay will sell one for upwards of $400.

keep an eye on ebay they are on there all the time
non running parts saw sell around 100 if they are complete

good running work saws I have seen as much as 450 . with 30 shipping

keep your 2100 .youll regret getting rid of it . the are fun to bring out every now and then and rip thru a big stick!!!!

Thanks guys. I've found my 100cc saws don't get used much, if at all. I either grab the larger saws if the wood is real big, or I grab the lighter 85-95cc saws. I'd like to keep everything just to keep the collection growing, but I'm starting to even question my own sanity! :D

I picked up a 2101 this week. This saw is a little too young for collecting, but since one established member of this chainsawcommunity, going by the user name of rope&sa..... stated that these saws eat Stihls for breakfast, I couldn't resist trying it.....besides the price was right up husky ally at approx 200$...:poke::poke:

It has top compression and the insides look clean as a whistle. Only the starter assy has seen some abuse (probably the result of the high compression and no decomp), and I could temporarely fix it. Sure could need a replacement cover though....

I noticed also that the rear cover (XP cover) has a different color fading than the rest of the saw. Could it be from another saw ?

it sports a 25" bar (very common on falling saws here)and .404 chain. quick acceleration and very nice idle, but trying it in small wood, I was not impressed with its grunt. Definately need to try it in some bigger wood though....

or it could be restricted muffler. I had to make a new grill but maybe there are too few holes....whatcha think...?

I recently sold a 298XP for my cousin and it was the same way, and I know it was the original. I don't know if the filter cover was a different type of plastic or what, but it did look odd.

very nice saw, but since its not totally pristene and not old enough for you, i think you should send it to Timberwolf to get race ported. you should have one pure evil saw in your collection, just for fun :clap:

I would maybe if TW was not living an ocean away from me. You don't know a source for the cover, would you ???

thanks
