I doubt it is a replacement...

The comment about a possible replacement wasn't about your 60, but about that "old 61".

Perhaps I don't get it.
The old 61 number is likely correct for the old saws, I have same in my 61 Praktica.

I may not have been clear enough about what I referred to.....


That aside, the basic "mystery" is still the same - what's up with the "60 Rancher" designation?

I wonder if it was just a tuned down version of the 61 so they could call it a "rancher" just like Stihl did with the "Farm Boss" models and other saw companies have done this over the years as well .
More of a marketing thing .

61 was first Praktica saw with white top, then Rancher with white top/grey top, then in end just 61 with orange top.

I think/guess this 60 was in break point between 61 Rancher white top and 61 Rancher Grey top.

I agree this must be a marketing thing. But detuned 61 I doubt it was.

Detuning the 61 (rancher) further would likely have been a challenge - as it was pretty "detuned" in the first place. :lol:

However, the 61 got a larger carb and a little better performanse at about (or exactly?) the same time as it became the "Orange top"

I've been eyeing a 61 that the farmer where we keep our horses at has . He turns 80 this year and I think it's getting to be too much saw for him . I'm hopeful he may donate it to me if I offer him a smaller saw or do any cutting when he needs it done . :cool:

Magnus , that 60 has the same piston diameter as the 61 ? Even a different mufler will detune a saw a bit so I have to suspect it's a 61 in sheeps clothing :)

Yes, I believe it is the same.

There were 4-5 mufflers to 61 thru the years. Last was not of the best.

if it isn't odd enough just being a model 60, the other recoil you have is different from the one on the saw, meaning there must have been more than one version of the model 60...................... :wink:

Yes, hard to believe this was just a fluke and two saws made.

There has to be more info some were...

There has been progress here.
In the last boxes we sorted thru from that massive load 4 years ago we found tank and handle for the 60.
I had put on a new tank and a handle I got from William on it:

Now it is about the same as it was originally I think.

Still no news of it other than the theory it was a discussion item at a board meeting.
