:woowoo: :woowoo:


The dude I bought it from said he bought it late fall of 2010. He didn't want to sell it but he needed the money to fix his car. Said he's never cleaned the air filter before - he never even had the cover off, lol. He said he's prolly put 20 tanks through it or so and it shows. The chain is pretty beat up and so is the bar - he said that the chain was new but the bar was used before he had it on the saw. He initially bought the saw to help his dad cut up some tops and once that was done it sat on the shelf in the garage...

Pretty slick find for $250. Runs frikkin' great, just needs a bath. :thumbsup:

Schweet!!!! I always liked those saws. Kinda the little brother to the 7900 in my mind, similar style. I actually like the looks of the 5100 a little better. The big DOLMAR logo on the side of the front handle assembly is slick looking.

I pulled the muffler and the piston is perfect.

In no way does that guarantee anything (especially with this saw in particular) but seeing clean insides is always a relief.

And hell, even if it eventually does blow up, it's nothing that $189 won't fix. ;) :rolleyes2: :thumbsup:

Nice.

To think I havent been in a buying mood. I have past on a good looking MS361 for $275, like new 034 $150, 357xp with auto-comp $250.

Guess I am just waiting on something special that I havent owned before. Hmmmm 550 :jawdrop: maybe :wheee:

:update: Having to fight the urge big time again today 044 $325, NE 346xp $250, 034 $75. :whatthehell:

I remember when the 5100S was $325 new. Last one a neighbor bought was $350 new a few years ago.

That's a clean lookin saw. I probably give $100 for it, just so ya know. ;)


There pretty good runners. Only thing I don't like is the limited coil.
