  1. I think they are interesting but unfortunately the younger generation could care less. They already seam to be getting cheaper and easier to find these days.

    I think its a very dirty mcculloch super 250 or some where in that breed. The bolts on the front of the case give it away. Ive got a bunch of old homeys and cousin collects mcculloch. From homey xl12s to the xl925 and 1150g, none have bolts on the front like that.

    Thats my guess also.  Dad had one but i sold my last McCulloch years ago.

    I would not be completely surprised to hear @lorenzohad one of these squirreled away somewhere in the back of his shop.😄

    I think it is artwork!


    I had several different variations of that but have since sold all my flat head stuff.  Still have a couple odd ball bits and pieces here though.

  4. Glacier national park. Kim and her sister just got back from a two week tour of national parks. Put  5000 miles on the car . All the way to the northern tip of  Washington then down the coast on the 101 and back.

    I don't have one, but I would spend just slightly more and the the pro version that comes with a Nikasil cylinder (made in Italy?) and better carb.  I think they have the black covers.  I've seen them on Amazon.

    In general some people seem to have good luck with them, other people don't.  I don't know if it is randomness associated with poor construction, or if it has more to do with people being able to break an anvil with a hammer.  If I was looking for occasional use (weekend stuff), I don't think I'd be afraid of one.  On a plus, if you blow it up, there are huge amounts of parts available (OEM and aftermarket) for the 2 saws that you mentioned and I know you can fix them.  

    Bottom line, you aren't trying to make money with it, so give it a shot.  Or you can try to find a used 460/461 that will probably run you in the $700 range.  Maybe $500 if you find an ugly one.

    If you aren't stuck on Stihl (or their clones), I would look at a Husqvarna 371 or 372.  They can be found used/rebuild for the $400 to $500 range and would be more reliable than the Farmertec.  

    I have a new 660 Stihl i would sell

    And not much heat for all your effort’s 

    On the contrary, i have friends that heat with wood 100%.

    If you have the right stove you can do it . A fire place however is a waste when it comes to trying to heat your house.  A few miles from here a neighbor has a wood burner built in series with an air handler that has ductwork throughout the house.

    with propane at $2 a gallon you might see more and more of this kind of thing.

    We burn tons of wood in our fire pit out side . Pretty much has a fire in it 24/7

    House does not have a fire place or a wood stove.
