Well guys, I got an itch for something strange. But instead of going to the local watering hole and picking up some questionable "company", I'm going to ask all of you to keep an eye out for a Mac Titan 70 or a Pro Mac 72 for me. These were saws made in Italy for McCulloch by Emak(?) during a short-lived revival of the brand. I got cash money or loads of saws and parts to trade. Thanks...

I think Mark Heimannm has one as well as Al Smith..Don't know what there doing with them. Brad might have one too, check with them. My dad has one, it's a nice saw (not for sale:ahah:)
good luck

Hey Jim-

I've talked Al and Mark both (I've been trading saws and parts with both guys for years, Al since 2000) but they aren't really interested in selling anything, like your dad.

No worries though, I'm just throwing the interest out there and figure one day a member here will come across one in the bone yard of a saw shop and will think of me
when that happens. On that end I'm keeping several rebuilt modern saws in reserve to trade since I know that money isn't always the prime motivator of the modern
saw maggot (people like myself.)

I'd really like to find a Pro Mac 72 as those were primarily sold in Europe and Asia.

I've long had a want for a Titan70 myself JJ. I got to run one at Expo'94 and always thought they were cool.

Have you seen inside the cylinder John? It's pretty cool- quad transfer ports with a tall, out-of-the-case style stroke and the piston is the exact same height (crown height)
as a 372 piston. All in all, a torquey motor with good acceleration. The weak points are: narrow piston skirts, bottleneck at the carb and air filter, cheesy muffler, cheesy clutch.
Those can all be addressed though.

Hearing all that makes me want one even more. I really liked the styling on the saw and thought it ran OK. Somewhere I have an original brochure for the saw. I know that it is goofy to think this, but since Husqvarna owns the rights to the McCulloch name in the US now I wish they would bring a quality saw in the McCulloch livery back to the states. Sentimental stuff from when I was a kid....

Dug into two shipping crate style boxes today but came up with no 70. Dealership owner said he sold several. Found the serials in his records. Made 89-90. Sold them in 92.
