    Default The MS150 Has Arrived

    Henry & Randy of weedeaterman.com have supplied this brand spanking new MS150 for us to dig around in and share with you guys here at The Treehouse.

    We plan to do some mild mods to the saw, along with videos, pictures, and commentary.

    You guys are the experts in your field.......it's your thoughts that we need. For example, is a screened exhaust mandatory for you? How about noise......is a modded saw too loud for you to be happy with?

    This saw is light in my mind.......but by your standards it my be an underpowered, overweight pig.

    One other thing........what size wood should I use for testing this saw? It's 24cc. I was thinking an 8" piece of poplar, but would love to hear your thoughts.

    Here's a few pics. Remember please, we do about 200 working saws a year. This saw will have to be worked in with the others that are here to be modified and repaired. There will be days when we won't have anything new to add.

    Is that weight dry or with gas and oil?

    At least it has metal dogs .

    That is ready to cut. It even has some chips stuck under the clutch cover.

    Alrighty. Sounds like 8 inch poplar would be suitable. A screen is a great option, but I wouldn't call it mandatory for most situations this saw will see. Loud exhaust is a problem long-term for me, for some not at all. I already have hearing damage, many of us do.

    I wear hearing pro all the time so sound doesn't bother me.

    Is the saw getting passed around?

    Screened muffler meaning spark arrestor?

    I highly recommend BixVid. It cures any ailment, prevents injury and reverses pre-mature baldness.

    Yep......screen is spark arrestor.

    We will let one of you guys buy the saw after we get done with it. This thread is only going to be on The TreeHouse.

    I'm thinking sealed bids?

    I don't do spark arrestors and wear ear protection all the time too. I can't wait to see what you can do with that thing.

    Money goes to Randy to cover his expense of buying, and shipping the saw.
