    Hey Danno, love that 250. I'd bet she cuts real nice.

    for giggles, I have a 1-41, two 1-42's and a 1-72. I use them once in a while, amazes me that that run so well. I guess they came out in the 60's? so that makes them what 40-50 years old. These old girls all run 404 chain. I can switch all their bars and chains to the Huskie which really makes for some interesting setups.

    According to Chainsaw Collectors Website :

    1-41 March 1960 to February 1961

    1-42 March 1961 to April 1962

    1-73 May 1962 - 1963

    Myself,I'd love to have a SP125,CP125 or their predecessor,the 797. Basically the same unit,with minor cosmetic changes over the period.Production from 1967 to 1977.Can go from $400 to over $700 in good running condition on Ebay,I'm hoping to get lucky someday.

    agreed. A man can dream, right? The Super 250 will be pulling a .404 on a 36" bar when I'm done with it. Trying to see what sprocket options I have as the thing is a monster with torque, but runs WOT at something like 6,000RPMS.

    The 281 is Huge and Heavy....made the 660 I had here for a while look small and feel light.

    It's 80CC, but is ported and running gasketless. It will get traded soon, as I really have a use for anything that big. It was just a fun project. My 372 pulls a 28" bar just fine.

    Thats the way to go....404 is a much harder set up for grinding and you have a narrow kerf win win!

    Here is my crew Stihl 660 with 36 inch bar, Stihl 390 with 20 inch, Husqvarna 50 with 16 inch bar. 25 inch bar in the cover and my brand new Alaskan Mill. I have a McCullough 14 inch that doesn't get much playing time anymore.

    Here is my little collection, none of them were purchased new. The Remington was was in the basement when I bought my house. The others were ether freebies or bought used and repaired/ rebuilt.
    The three I use are the Husky 350 and the Husky 36 and McCulloch electric with the chainsaw buddy.
