Troll,
Thanks for the speedy reply to this old thread we are revisiting. This 2100XP that I attached pics of just came onto ebay about 24 hours ago, I have seen alot of these saws, the sticker does look very original to me.
eBay item number: have to ask seller to post pic of serial number tag or just type the serial number in the auction.
162287103255
also this saw on ebay from canada with same 2100XP decal sticker.
eBay item number: this one clearly shows serial number tag MIA and seller states that looks like newer crankcase installed on this unit, looks like an original rewind though.
162232712649

I just acquired a 2100cd serial number 6090679 that appears to be a very late model 1986 I believe, and it has a chain brake clutch cover with the silver and blue small professional sticker in the upper left hand corner and the large silver and blue decal in the center of the clutch cover and this cover with these decals I thought only to be on the 298xp and the 2101xp but could have been put on this late model original or it may have been changed out as well, so this chainsaw I bought is how I got into searching internet today for some more info on these big bad boys, I have several more 2100 and 2101 but I have not researched my serial numbers of those yet, getting cold out and winter removal of yard stuff has husky collection saws harder to obtain than usual in the small shelved barn shed.


That serial number points at 1986 week 9, provided the number tag is "silver" and not black.

In the woods.
Old thread but another 2101W here. 2101W is clear as day on the serial tag and positively a factory stamping. I bought the saw off eBay out of British Columbia about 9 years ago. The muffler was ported down low with a punch! The saw looked like it was left in a box trailer for years when listed.

Upon arrival I cleaned it up good replaced some heavily damaged plastic, fuel line, oiled the cylinder up good, and patched the in woods muffler job.

Saw now runs every few years for limited bucking of large oak logs.

I have a shot at buying a 2101 appearance is very clean. Haven’t gotten my hands on it yet to look it over in person. But I have seen it run and man it’s a power house. Guy wants 400 any thoughts on this price?

For $400 running, it’s clean, grab it. These are beasts once you plug the govenor in the carb.

Some of these running or not seem to be kit bashed together, a bunch of different parts.

yes 400 good price deal on a running one of these with no scoring of cylinder and piston, never hurts to try to make a bargain and ask if guy will take 350. I recently paid 350 for 298xp in running condition but then removed muffler when I got it home and found it to be scored pretty severely, no going back at that point, I have since installed NOS p/c on this saw and it is a thumper from hell. 20190919_121054.jpg 20190919_121101.jpg 20190919_121113.jpg 20190919_121150.jpg IMG_6379.JPG IMG_6380.JPG

When ever I purchased a used saw I try to factor in rebuilding it in the price. That’s replacing crank bearings, crank seals, gaskets, cylinder/ piston, rebuild the carb.
These big 100 cc saws are the best that husky ever offered in there day.

No problem. I run a 36" 3/8 pitch and it's a hungry saw. 404 36" no problem.

I think they were rated from the factory for up to a 60" bar. I don't think you have to worry about a 36".

These 2100/2101 came with 404” chain. It should handle a 36” bar no problem. Anything longer bar wise I’d go skip tooth chain. Don’t try to tame the beast let the saw do it’s thing, no extra pressure needed.
