The old saws are just for the occasional cut for grins and giggles!: Mine has the handle, and it's spring loaded, but there is no "guts" under the cover.
Chainsaws ranging from 12 inches up and over 36" are all available. My Stihl MS170 Chain saw will not fire. If your Stihl chainsaw starts up with a reassuring puttering sound, but dies when you pull the throttle trigger, there likely is an issue with the fuel, but the carburetor could need adjustment.
D And since you probably won't want to use it send it to me so it can have a distinguished place on the shelf next to my 040 and 041!!!: This saw also could be equipted with a Bosc system using an external electronic trigger device.
April 27, 2017, 08: Do you already have an account? That saw had a sound to it that every faller in Big River would ask me, "WTF are you running up there? Northern Ireland. From what I've read they added the chain brake mid-way through the production run.
Logged Making a living with a saw since age 16. The flocked is better,of course,but hard to find and is no longer in stock. Interesting thing about these 1117 series 048 Supers is all the ones I've seen had full wrap handles and came out of the PNW.
Thank you again for your e-mail. That weight seems somewhat high to me, just totally guessing by feel...
Maybe change the rings but i would not change the piston. Hey dave, I know you asked me elsewhere for this, but it is of more use to more people if I put it here.The chainsaw guy shop talk Stihl 048
The damned thing really annoyed me the last I used it ,rebuilt the carb ,ran great. It seems to have worked for me.
