    Put a new carb kit and sprocket and it's good to go. Buddy I was going to give/sell it to ran into car problems. It mayu be up for the chopping block if he turns it down. Can' justify needing something between my ms200 rear handle and the 046

    Nice 07 looks like an early one, 07 and not an 07s. 3 090/070’s and a couple 051’s. Wish I had saws like that around me to pick up.

    Looks like we’re supposed to get another 6-8 tonight north of Duluth. And the 40’s they were predicting are now low 30’s so it’s just going to add to the 6-8 already on the ground.

    I suck again.
    finally talked my way into a local shed that was rumored to be full of chainsaws.
    And it was.
    After 3 hours of wading through Solo rex's,digging past Pioneer 620's ,and dodging toppling piles of Stihl 08's's, I emerged with some prizes,things ive been searching for for years.
    Most notable-
    Champ universal, 160cc's of aussie made bad boy.
    Stihl BL
    Solo Twin
    Sankey-Aspin x3
    Canadien super 22 gear drive
    Danarm tornado mark 2
    PM Woodboss
    and a whole bunch of other goodies.
    Back for a second dip next week IMG_4651.JPG

    I don't think anyone else here can claim to have walked past a Solo Rex and left it behind.

    So I take it the contras, 090, 070 and other big stihls are pretty common looking at some of the saws you’ve collected. Too bad it costs so much to ship saws to the us. Lots of people like those saws over here.

    Think some of us North America boys need to get a boat and head down under.
