I cut some stuff today but was too busy being pissed off and surly to snap one for the gram.

New bar and chain for the MS 310. Pretty sure the old bar was tweaked slightly, and would throw sparks out the bottom of the bar when cutting. View attachment 196942
Solid ES bar. Nice. Much better than the laminated E bars.

That's just the 50 cc, what you can see at one time, the lie you tell the family so they don't call Hoarders to have a chainsaw episode...
Way to ruin the party... I had them going for a minute.

There is. Listen for "four stroking" at WOT. Basically when the saw is only hitting on every other combustion cycle.

Then make a cut and the 4 stroking should "clean up" and sound smoother under load during the cut.

If you don't hear it four stroking at all, it's too lean. If it is four stroking in the cut, it's too rich.

I can hear it here, every time he takes pressure off the thing.


I think I'll serenade the neighbors again tomorrow.

That's the sound you are looking for. Also it is better to be a little bit rich than lean. Running lean can burn up a saw very quickly.

Annoying those damn neighbors is one of the best parts of running chainsaws.

For the price, I sure hope so. Those Stihl original parts are pricey around here. Did cut like butter when I went to test it out today, though.

I'll run the laminated bars on the small saws for small stuff, I have a couple for my MS261. I keep the ES Bars on my bigger saws.

Sold a saw today. My Stihl 028, kind of the saw that got me into saws. But I've got enough other 50cc saws and this one hasn't been used in forever. I think I'm down to a dozen or so(?) now.

The 028 is a great saw I wish I had one I have an 015 for little stuff and it tends to struggle but it's many years overdue for a rebuild I find it to be physically too small also. The top handle is to close to the rear handle

Nice saws but they are heavy for a 50cc'er. I'd like to find an 028 Super.

Put it back square on the shelf. Looks like something (wind) rattled it half off.
