    This is a used German-made Stihl 066 chainsaw. It has a 99cc engine and has been modified to have low back-pressure and high RPMs.

    It appears to fit your hand grip perfectly! It adds character and appeal, dare I suggest machismo!? It's you Cabin, definitely!

    I dunno..... looks like the paint has e worn off the muffler..... probably wont get first place in to many race saw competitions or it woodnt be fer sold.

    But then agin it'd depend on hat the askin price wuz and what yur offerin price wood be too, come tah an agreement on the figger and maybe it'd did okie dokie fer ya afterall.... prolly cut a cord or two on a fifty gallon of fuel, though ou'll kneed a fallin saw too cuz that muffler is pointed way all rong.

    Most guys just use a pair of scissors and then a disposable plastic razor. A bit of overkill if you ask me...

    Geez.......99cc engine? You could put a 36" bar on that one. With that exhaust, it looks like a motorcycle instead. Does it come with wheels?
