I inherited Dads old saw. I used it to trim then flush cut the stumps below grade. Beat the bejeezus out of it then left it 5 yrs on the porch forgotten. I got out a 3/16 round file and a mill file for the rakers. I touched up the teeth with some difficulty. The file wasn't removing the rust off the top of cutters unless I held it up. My guess is that he had his OPE guy hit it with a sharpener. I filled the oil tank with drain oil because it was handiest. It has a really cheesy manual oiler but its black was easy to see that it worked. I comenced to use it on a cherry that I needed to cut up. It cut evrything up to about 7" diameter. It has about 1 tooth for 3" of chain. It cuts slow and steady but doesn't bog. Lighter and quieter than the Farmboss too. I'm impressed with it. I always regarded it as a toy. It isn't. I use it on a 50" cord plugged into a GFI pigtail. cool

Made by Poulan or Remington?

I bought one at a yard sale for 5 bucks. 16Ē bar I believe. Itís hunter green in color. Itís not a
toy for sure! Itís perfect for stuff I donít want to use mt Stihl on like cutting trees low to the ground.
