    Not a total you suck, more like a just the tip, but got this for $40. Wont oil, otherwise pretty clean.

    I figure if I fix it and throw it on craigslist as a Ranch boss super xtorq magnum I should get some fat stacks.

    Oohhh, thanks for the reminder! Will 24" be enough though?
    I will also need to spell it Haskaverna to optimize the craigslist search feature.

    Today's haul, Stihl shop manuals, owners manuals, parts/price lists books, ipls, and a few other collectables.
    From Contra/lightning to early 1980.
    At $200aud it works out to about $1 a manual. 20181010_165742.jpg 20181010_170032.jpg 20181010_171011.jpg 20181010_171036.jpg

    I think I’ll just get a normal coil, those thermostat ones are obviously unreliable

    Since @Brbrooks83 wont post his find, I’m posting it for the SOB. I think the 880, 660, 441, one 362, and the 250 run as well as the blower and hedge trimmers. @cowroy knows him as well.

    I paid a decent used price for this thing, but I still think I came out well. It was in such good condition, I couldn't pass it up. At first, I thought it was just a nice older 044. Then I saw the red control knob in the photo. I asked for the first 3 digits in the serial number, and took a chance and paid the 'buy it now' price. Less than a week later I had a nice high compression 10mm 044 before me. In stock form, it weighs 13lbs 5 ounces.

    I love my 10 mm 044 Red Lever, but I see you have a different air filter system. I'm wondering if the one you have is lighter than the more common system?

    Much lighter. First thing I noticed. Let me find an 044 from the old PHO weight thread I started back on the 'other' forums here... which reminds me I need to put this thing on a scale and take a photo for the gallery.

    Almost a 12 ounce difference. It's a similar filter to the MS361. Which, oddly, stays cleaner than the HD filter system for longer. Or maybe it just makes me lazier - dunno. It's also closer to an MS361 in weight than a 440. ;) But that's with a small clutch cover and one small inside dawg. She now wears a large clutch cover and big dogs. But she's still very light for the power. I rarely reach for another saw.

    Wow, was that my first post here? ;) Just realized.

    Here she is easily pulling 24" in oak:

    Angled fins and the stock muffler before I opened it all up to hell(Chinese clutch cover with graffiti and Husky nuts, coz I just prefer them to the Stihl version):

    So did you push them down the steps after buying the saw too?

    Lol.
    Nope, did it right.
    I spotted it about two weeks ago in a customer’s boiler room, dusty in a milk crate.
    I asked him about it and he said “what chainsaw?”.
    He said he doesn’t know who owns it, give him some time. I left my #.
    I was back again for a repair today and he asked if I was still interested. I played cool like I didn’t stop and fill my pockets at the ATM on the way.
    He was happy to get the $ and get it out of he boiler room.
    Starter pawls were stuck retracted so pulling the handle only sealed the deal at $60.
