I am still pretty sick about selling my super clean 075 but I made money and hind sight is 20/20. I need to find another saw that will fill the void that selling the 075 has left. My dream is to find a Mac 797 that is in need of work or something similar. I am not sure why the Homelite 750 brings the money that it does but i guess people must like them. Any other suggestions for big saws that won't require a mortgage?

A Homie 750 is about as impressive as an older saw can get.


I'm not really into big old school metal but I WILL own a 750 one day. There's really no reason not to have one in the stable..... :rock2:

I need more big CC exposure. That 2100CD was just unreal. I need more :)

I got a P-62 Pioneer which is 98 cc. Impressive grunt factor.

Almost all of these big old saws are getting harder to find parts for. Get an 090.

I assume you recommended that because Phil is up Andreas' butt and not because you think that is actually a good choice.

797, SP125, P62, 655 BP all are good choices. I have seen more than 1 650 that outshone its larger brother.


Of course, then there is the Holy Grail.

I recommended it because you can find parts. Ever look for a 655bp piston? Or a 750 muffler?

I think you may as well gimme that 166. Its silly to have a chainsaw in the bunk with you.

750 mufflers are hard to come by?

Apparently the Wisconsin school system failed to point out the difference between 'gimme' and 'sell me'.

I find your poast hurtful. :bananabang:

Not being a product of the Wisconsin school system, I wouldn't know.

But where I did go to school we were taught to ignore ridiculous attempts at glad handing and pretend the embarrassing episode never occurred.

Our Homelite 650 will whip up on our 750 extra bad...... :sadtears:

Extra being relative, I have two.

I should have enough parts to put together at least one 750, maybe two.

I've given away quite a few 750 parts lately.....

Your feeble attempt to cornfuse me with all that fancy lingo may have worked, but I know one thing.

If my glad hands were embarrassing me on a regular basis, I'd stop shoving them down my pants. :bananabang:
