Modern equal to mythical Stihl chainsaw?
I was really twitching to go buy an MS C-M to replace my 28 year old , but my father smacked me around a bit and might have knocked some sense into me
Instead, since I have a perfect running , I decided to treat it with a Forester tune up kit, new 18" bar, chain and file combo and also 2 more chains.
I also ordered a bar/chain combo and spare chain for a guy at work with a smaller Stihl.
This will buy me another 2 years, maybe 3 instead of paying $ + 6% Pa sales tax on the new MS C-M (I get 10% off).
I'm still twitching a bit, just because I'm addicted to shiny new things!
Kevin, you can call me anything but “average and ordinary,” I love it.
In the last three weeks I have been working full time, and I got sick. But I did buy some more wheels and tires for my truck. Now I have four good tires and two tires that were made in December I also got a new brake drum so that it doesn’t shake, rattle, and roll down the road. Actually, those tires are not all balanced properly, so it still vibrates. I replaced the oil pressure switch so it doesn’t drip oil when I park.
I finally got my MS running and tuned today, so I can mill some planks. I have to rebuild the bed on my truck because I didn’t provide enough room to fit my gasifier. I need to build a platform to set the gasifier on, and I also want to build two more toolboxes and flash it all with sheet metal so it’s waterproof.
To finish my gasifier I have to build the condensation tanks, build the cooling rack/canopy, and then mount it all and run all the plumbing. Build a mixing bowl, the damper valves, the timing advance cable, the tennis ball valves. I have given myself three weeks to finish it. If I don’t finish it in three weeks, then I’m packing everything up on my truck and I’m going down to Springville, AL so that I can git-er-done with no distractions or excuses. I really want to drive on wood to Argos this year. I’m not doing it on gasoline. miles at 7 mpg is gallons which would cost me $ I would rather buy a generator, or save it for my land to build a house.
I don’t generally look for opportunities to talk about my faith or political beliefs, but when I feel the need to, I speak freely. When I feel the need, I choose not to talk. For example, talking about the EPA and my chainsaw. Their rules and regulations just don’t apply to me, so I can do what I want with my chainsaw. I thought it was important to mention that because I thought people would wonder about that. Same thing with my truck. In my case, it’s a model, so the emissions statues don’t apply to it. It is older than , so it is without the jurisdiction of Tennessee Title There are ways to stay without the jurisdiction of state statues. Title 55 doesn’t have jurisdiction over non-residents of Tennessee. So when I buy a newer model, as a non-resident of Tennessee, again, I’ll be without the jurisdiction of Title 55, and will not be subject to emission inspections, etc.
MS Response to mods, worth the effort?
I'm in the process of transitioning the saw stable into a set of more "pro" level saws. I like Husqvarna saws, but have a family friend out of state that keeps Stihl saws priced competitively and then some for me.
I just read through the recent 14+ page thread that focused a lot of energy on the theoretical switch design deficiencies of the MS I found it while looking for mod info on the MS
I guess I missed choke/switch control problem with mine. I seem to be able to operate the controls. :hmm3grin2orange:
I do think the air-filter on the saw is a POS; I need to keep a large rubber band around mine to keep the tabs tight enough to hold it on. The carb that came on mine has the H,L, and LA adjusts. However, it was also a POS Chinese carb that the fuel metering diaphram cover warped on, after a couple of tanks of gas. The saw developed the problem of consistent fuel starvation when it warmed up and the diaphragm cover warped enough to leak vacuum.
Once I figured the carb problem out, I fixed it with a little rtv under the "high spot" on the diaphram cover and it has run like a new MS, ever since. When I first acquired the saw, I was given a choice of saws as a very nice gift. I picked the MS, based on Stihl's reputation, but did not really know enough about homeowner vs mid range vs pro saw quality to make a well informed decision at the time. I picked what I thought was the cheapest "good saw" to not break the bank of the generous giver. The MS came close to costing Stihl a customer for life because of the frustration with the irritating carb problem.
So, with all that said, I was looking at specs on the MS pro saw and having a hard time justifying swapping the reasonably well running MS out for it. The MS looks like it might be a little more interesting, with hp vs. the MS's I also consider the xp a good potential replacement candidate, but am gradually getting won over with Stihl's pro saw quality and design features.
However, the budget would be happier (i.e. wife) if I just modded the MS and ran it for a couple more years, as the middle weight saw in the stable that I pickup for lighter bucking/limbing.
My question: Has anyone here done more than just a muffler mod to an MS, and was the overall effect worth the effort on this saw?
One of the videos in the previously mentioned thread showed the saw responding rather well to a muffler mod; what about port work? Or are we talking silk purse out of a sow's ear?
I envision the saw stable to be something like:
MST, climbing, limbing, etc.
MS modded or its replacement, limbing bigger stuff, some bucking
MS felling/bucking bigger stuff/maybe milling
PPT, stuff you do with a pole saw
So the gap I want to fill is between the MST and soon to arrive MS I think the MS is most likely ok, and maybe with mods, would be great for my intended purposes. However, I'm really curious about its response to mods, before I spend a lot of time on it.
Your thoughts are appreciated!
