What bars will work on my Mac 610?
What length would you use for bucking Pine?
So why the hatred of Mac 610?
How do these saws take to being MMed?
Heavy and not alot of power, but the Cylinder is horizontal...
I have a strong dislike for this series. Dislike the looks. Dislike the feel. Dislike the weight (for the displacement). Can't stand the starters....
They're good reliable beater saws, but I greatly prefer a 10-series saw over them. The ONLY improvement in these over the 10-series is that the chain tensioner is in the bar pad instead of the clutch cover....
A MM is not needed as the muffler is completely empty with a large screened opening. These saws are easy to fix and with the leaky oilier diaphragm running across a burnt up saw is rare. They start easily and will pull and oil 28" bars.
I've had a couple go through the shop but the saw is not worth keeping.
