    I loved my little MS150 for the year or so that I had it... until one of my guys left it on the chipper feed table as they drove back to the shop.

    I've done that... someone grabbed them, followed me and returned them.

    I got lucky that day.

    Blocking down a half rotten ash the other day, using the 150 to cut some of it....it stopped oiling. It happened to my other 150 before too.
    I cleaned it out on the job, power head and bar, but that didn't solve it. Had to use the 200...forgot how heavy that sucker is!
    Got home, drained the oil tank, half filled it with gas, gave it a shake and poured it out...quite a lot of crud came out, repeat, then filled it with oil again and ran it without the bar. I could see the runny, gassy oil start to bubble through, then run normal, bar and chain back on and all was good.
    Whew.
    Keep smiling, they will wonder what you're up to...

    I know what they cost new. But taking one in trade and wonder if I allowed to much on trade in. Any of you guys bought used ones?

    Said it has had the crack in the brake handle forever and never grew or had any problems with it.

    Owner said he only used for pruning and the 200T does the rest.

    I really wanted a 2511T but a trade in is a trade in and we both get what we want with no money exchanging hands.

    If the little 1/4" chain just isnt for me. I probably will sell it for what I have invested in it.

    The old bar is cooked from the inexplicable, occasional oiler blockage. About half of the MS150s I have bought have experienced it and it is highly irritating. If you pull the bar off and hit the oiler outlet with an air nozzle it works instantly but you never know for how long. Rinsing the oil tank out with premix usually fixes it but it takes a week of running it to know if you fixed it or not.

    Good info.

    What kind of prices was you getting runners for used?

    I ask the past owner about the bar having no paint and the oiler working or not at times. He said the oiler works great and that he removes the paint from his bars once they start showing paint wear. Said he does this on all his bars.

    Past owner said he had already done the muffler mod on the stihl 150 T. I made a few cuts with the 12" bar in 5"-6" ash and the 1/4" did what I was expecting it to NOT do. So that is fine now with me. Smooth and pretty dang quick.

    Keeping it or selling it?
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.
