New trunk saw............

Postby jltrent » Wed May 30, 2018 9:36 am

........well new to me.....a guy had this loaded to take to sell for scrap metal (as prices are up) and I bought it from him for what amounts to around 70 cents a pound. Put a new carb kit in, new chain, some screws, plug boot cover, new fuel/oil lines, duckbill, new recoil rope, good cleaning, tuning and some TLC and it runs like new out of the box. This is the older metal case Super 2 version with the dual triggers for one-handed or two-handed comfort while using, pretty neat. It has what appears the original bar and the clutch gear looks hardly used, so I am guessing low hours. I have decided to carry it in my trunk. What do you carry in your trunk?

What's the extra gray plastic apparatus on the trigger handle end of the saw? The extra chain brake?

Nice garden!

Yes, as I have never seen one before on any saw. It works good as if the back hand comes off and barely hits it the chain locks up. Very neat feature that future saws I bet will have.

He is another future truck saw...to nice for a trunk saw.......this was a Christmas present and I have never started it yet. It is the latest Version 2 Stihl MS261 Pro saw that weighs noticeably less than the Version 1. ( you can tell the version difference by the clutch cover design)

I am setting here today killing time hoping for some weather to put up hay as I will never complain about rain as it has rained or acted it for at least two weeks straight. It looks like me, myself and I will be putting up 150 acres of hay as my son has a lot of things going on in his job and want be around much.

I said it's a great trunk saw, I didn't say I carry it much lol!
Trees do fall across the main road here once in a while, lots of beetle kill pine.. I just turn my truck around and use the flatdeck bumper to push them out of the way
That saw had picco chain on it, always was coming off, couldn't keep it tight, then I found I got it with the wrong chain, supposed to be ordinary 3/8th.. works much better now!

I have had a full size 3/8 chain on a 50cc saw before (Stihl 026), but IMO it was over kill. I like the .325 setup better or 3/8's Picco. The older 50cc saws are slower of chain speed and do have better low end torque than the newer saws, but with the large 3/8 that is a pretty big bite for that size saw from my experience especially in hardwood. I have a 3/8 picco chain on a Stihl 026 right now and it is one of favorites and doesn't seem to come off no more than any other. Recon it was something else causing the chain to come off more?

Wish I had your talent. I think I cuss small engines especially weedeaters more than anything other than people's stupidity. Those 346xp saws may be the best saws ever made. Power to weight ratio is incredible. Even the die hard Stihl guys are always amazed when I break it out. I have one in each truck and am always looking for another one just because.
