Never came across a blue one yet. I have had my hands on several red SXL's though... There are four in the shed right now. A fifth may have came in the mail today...

On your 460 with dual stacks, why have them exit out of the front muffler casing like that?

I have it both ways actually. One with them aiming out front and the other to the side. I loved the looks of them aiming out front so I made it that way. But I made the other version because it makes it kinda hard cutting big trees with the muffler stacks in the way. 004.JPG

I thought the SXL could not get any louder. Mine has had a gutted muffler for years, it is an old blue, '68 model I think. It was my Grandpa's big saw and cut lots of wood. I have cut tons of wood with it too, but it sits on the shelf now. I should gas it up and run it again. They scream. But my MS440 cuts so much nicer and faster.

They are great old saws, I have a XL automatic, same as a newer super, and a blue xl-12. The early xl-12 just had a stack for a exhaust, you could check the piston with out pulling the muffler. I always where ear protection when using mine.

Why? I've never felt a Super XL was held back at all.... early ones had nothing but a straight stack off the cylinder like lots of older reed valve saws.

I've got three XLs right now too...
Mine cut pretty good stock to, I like stacks so I made a muffler with one. lol I will say the different design made the saw snappier and it seems to have a bit my low end.

My Lombard comango is a eardrum pounding machine
The Comango is basically a homey Xl with more displacement .
As a matter of record this was Homelites answer to the 10 series McCullochs and the most copied design of any chainsaw .They are all loud even with all the baffles in place .

It's hard to say how many companies used this design which came in many displacements .The largest I've heard of was in the 80 cc range .The examples I have are Remington,Lombard and Homelite .
