Sweet! Mine is a Craftsman 2.3. or Poulan SD25. Was my dads saw, I remember when I ran it. He topped the boarder trees in our old house, they were all laying on the ground and I asked if I could cut them up, never had ran a saw before, he said yes go for it. Man was I excited. I'll never forget that, and I'll never get rid of that saw.

Kinda sorta, but not really.


It's the 2nd saw I've run.


My dad had an old remington, tiny little thing. Before the days of the boomin' saw community, it needed a pullcord (2000-2001ish). I had just got my tax return and my dad told me to stop by a hardware store and pickup a short piece of rope. I went to Chase-Pitkin (originally a local home and garden center owned by Wegmans, now out of business) and I picked him up a brand new 46cc Poulan. came home and he asked me if I picked up a pullcord. I answered yes, and it's funny cuz I wasn't actually lying, lol. He asked where it was and I said it was in the trunk. He was beyond confused with why I would put a short piece of rope in the trunk of my car. I went around and opened the trunk up and he was extremely surprised to say that least. Cut a lot of wood with that saw. Still have it. A few months before he died he asked me if I wanted it back because there was prolly no chance of him running it anytime soon. I told him "Heck yeah!". Needs a little bit of muffler work but it's a great little saw. Love me them 46cc chassis.... :yup:

Kind of. Dad had a homelite super e-z that he had since new. Years ago before I knew what a saw was, I was a bit of an entrepreneur, and burned it up cleaning yards. Took it all apart, and tossed it. Years later from a member on AS I bought a running sper e-z and gave it to dad. I know it's not the one and only, but it's the saw. He talked/talks about it all the time, about how much wood he cut with that saw over the years. So we have the replacement e-z. He likes it, happy to have another e-z in the garage. He thought I'd forgotten about it :)

Dido. Sold it years ago, by chance purchased it in a large lot of saws without knowing. Resides on the shelf to this day.

sxla btw
FWIW, he said saw, not album. But I see what you did there. :D

Still got the 028 wood boss bought new in 84 when I was 12... It has been rebuilt once and has plenty of tape on the handles...
It was my responsibility to provide firewood for our house. I had a good uncle who supplied the place to cut, and did the hauling till I turned 16 and could use my truck...
I'll never sell it...
 
I don't have the first saw I ever ran at around 14-15 years of age but I have three just like it .It was a 250 McCulloch .

I do however have the first and only new saw ever which is an orange painted version of the afore mentioned S-25 Poulan marketed by Dayton electric motor co.It was 1974-75 on sale for 139.95 when the green painted Poulan was 169 .All I could afford at the time at about 5 bucks an hour .I probabley got my money back from selling firewood in less than two weeks at 60 a cord .

And all good first saws must have black tape on the handle somewhere...
It's the only thing holding the old 028 together...:facepalm:

How many of those units did Poulan sell in various colors???
It had to be millions...
It was enough that instead of buying parts I just buy 2 more saws. They're so small you can fit 4-5 in one box, which is great because then the wife doesn't even know how many I have!

Those danged things will blister your hand if you don't wear gloves which I don't so the tape which has been on there about 30 years .Yeah they are cheap even a runner .The green one in the picture I have 20 in and the one on my bench which needs attention about 35 including the shipping .

I bought the bench one for my wifes cousin who has a bad back and can't handle much over about an 026 in size .It has worked well for him for 4 years until he removed the sponge air filter and it swallowed a big seed of some sort .It might have sprung the reed valve .
