    Here's my overweight and underpowered 029 with its little bro MS180. Not the most impressive fleet, but they work just fine for me. The 029 has been in the family since '96 and I bought the MS180 for $100 two years ago.

    We have a running joke on the 180 but it is a good little saw! I had an 029 back in the day on the landscape crew.

    You know I cant say enough good things about that tough little sucker! My first saw,it was late HS grad/Xmas present almost 30 yrs ago.Not as fast as newer ones,about 8000 rpms I believe.But only 7.5 lbs & has incredible balance,been dropped a couple times when younger I used to climb/prune with it,started right up.I've noticed in the past few months they're going for $50-100 on ebay in good running condition.I dont like the newer 280's,not the same design.
